Bypass WC no matter what, bye week so that’s 25th June or 20 days. Maybe wait till week after v GC. Get a good 3 weeks of training into him and even bring him back through the VFL. Build his conditioning up slowly, he is critical to our finals.

Oh East Melbourne!
All part of the plan?!? Nice little 75% game and then let Rioli have a run in Dreamtime. This bloke is only required for last month of football - just need to make sure he and us get there!!

I don’t think there will be. Stay under the radar as we took him off just to get Rioli on. He was ‘managed’.

at least they should say "look Dion had some awareness, hehad scans this week and it turned out better than we expected, he's a chance to play next week"

Optuss isn't exactly soft tissue friendly.
Be a surprise if he plays next week.
We should request a venues change as well.

Probably decided to rest Dion next week and bring Kane in.

Managing and massaging game time and load into the guys to keep them on track and on target for release post bye.

Heard Lambert won't be ready to go for another 2 weeks

One of the most important players
A crucial cog in the Richmond machine.
Might fly under the radar at times, but he does so much work that gets the Tigers rolling.
Like Lambert, and in-form a fit Prestia is vital to our tilt at the threepeat.

Give him the week off.

That Optus surface is flat out dangerous. It's in terrible nick.

I'd rest Cotch too. Give Aarts and Baker another run in the middle

Think I would keep Cotch but rest Prestia. Agree the surface there was atrocious. We need Prestia later in the year, we need Cotch next week and maybe a rest later on.

The Skips an intriguing one isn’t he Mcr, is he best playing every week at 65% game time or havin a spell every 3 or 4 with more 80% game time ? as we know the Skip dosent even get the footy boots out until late August . Love Bakes in the middle, but hey Bakes can play anywhere in fact you could Ruck him against Nic Nat and get the same result :))

Good call mate, I reckon just knowing Cotch is in the side gives us a lift, but he's definitely managing his minutes, working off half back a bit more and kicking with the left frequently

West coast are cooked, and Aarts/Bakes midfield can get it done. Another game for RCD also valuable.

With the bye coming up, and the stuff going on with his family, I vote to rest the skip.
