We need more run. Ellis although much maligned was very crucial in how we play.

Macintosh a must inclusion for me.

Tigga will play.

Question mark over Nank and Graham against the Skunks next week both very rusty and under done.

CCJ Ross and Grover in the frame.

I hope Vlaustin is right to play.

Nank and Graham were miles off it tonight. Both out for CCJ and Ross.

Ccj for soldo
Balta for nank (extra defensive cover if needed)
Kmac or Ross for Vlastuin (Let him recover properly)
Maybe kmac or Ross for graham?
Edwards/ balta back to cover for Vlastuin

with no reserves games we probably need to rotate about 3-4 players per game

Hasn't Vlastuin has two concussions in two games?

He would be very unlikely as the new protocol would require him to be cleared today to play Thursday and I doubt they will be keen to make that call after two in a row.

They said on TV that this was Vlastuin's second concussion this year. But I think they are referring to the Adam's hit against Collingwood and I'm sure that wasn't classed as a concussion in the end.

That’s right. It wasn’t. Balmey was asked about it and said the medical report was all clear, hence why Adams was lucky.

The point still stands though that the new concussion protocols mean you have to be cleared 5 days before the game, which makes it exceedingly difficult to clear someone. He would have to be considered 100% today which is a big call for a Dr to make.

Graham doesn't look quite there at the moment, but no VFL to get him back to speed.

Difficult without the VFL playing.

Thankfully all clubs are in the same boat with the VFL n other reserves leagues shut down. If we play things smart we should be able to gain a small advantage through having a very strong group of youngsters already had a taste of senior footy n pushing hard for a regular spot anyway. Need to find a way to constantly rotate these fringe players in for a game or two while also finding a way to give our older players a bye week once or twice in case the league starts to concentrate the match calendar.

What’s the situation with Aarts? He can’t serve his suspension because the VFL has been shut down.
Has he been left in limbo or will he become available at some point in time?
