Will we see Sydney named?

It would seem the perfect time in the story.

we need to steady the ship and graft some points.

no time for experimenting or boldness IMO.

A time for conservatism*.

We know Stacky and Caddy can play a role in the system at the highest level under heat. I think they come in for Sheds and $hai

bring in CCJ and kick a score more conventionally with 3 talls too.

systems and processes clearly have a breaking point.

*an MRJ debut is conservative IMHO.

He debuted in 2019 against the Gee Whiz when we were injury and suspension ravaged.

Tigers lost the 4 points that day but still scored a big win after Syds debut.

Where do you see his fitness as being at @caesar?
Syd has been doing ok on the training track and got some midfield time in our VFL thrashing against Werribee and was close to our best. Ideally I would like more VFL midfield time for him for his fitness base.
If he is also doing everything required of him off the track it would not shock me if he was rushed back.

Leppa said on SEN that he would bring Stack back this week to help in the contest. He also said Grimes should play on Toby Greene and not let a Short or Houli spend any time on him.

Thanks, I learnt my lesson last year, I'm tying my flag to your mast this year.

When you say he's ready, I say he's ready.

I agree, Dimma's comments last week seemed to be saying the same thing. Experienced players are essential, as we saw against the experienced players Geelong have. But, we have a lot of injuries so now is the time to get that experience into our young players. We still need to win, so, balance getting experience into the younger players and having the team to win.

If Stack is ready to go he would be very useful, has played a few games, has ability, knows what to do.

& Stack to play !
Caddy has been given plenty of opportunities in various positions. It hasn't worked for some time now. Bachar has played 1 good game in the last 3.
We need a second ruck and third tall forward.
Perfect opportunity for CJ and Stacky, both highly skilled and with plenty of reasons to perform.
MRJ has the space and skill and would be just one of plenty of his age given the opportunity to shine, with not 2 but 3 tall forwards helping to bring the ball to ground.
Grimes a must.
Out
Bolton, Edwards plus Castagna to VFL and Houli to sub.
