SCT’s good mate, Dobbo, all the way from the UK has just pointed out the following:
“Up to five Fremantle rookies could be eligible for elevation to the main list after Scott Thornton and Antoni Grover were put on the long-term injury list.
The latest Dockers injury list reveals Grover is still up to seven weeks away with a knee injury, while Thornton could be out for longer with a groin problem.
With Dean Solomon retired and youngster Tim Ruffles already on the long-term injury list, four spots are vacant for Fremantle’s young guns.
And with only one veteran on the club’s list, it opens up a fifth spot and some intriguing scenarios for Mark Harvey and his match committee.
Michael Barlow and Matt de Boer look certain to be elevated, with Clancee Pearce also a strong chance after playing eight games last season.
Jay van Berlo and Alex Silvagni must come into strong consideration, with the latter impressing in his first pre-season.
Meanwhile, Hayden Ballantyne looks certain to miss the clash with Geelong on Saturday as he recovers from a knee injury, and Des Headland will have to pass a fitness test.”

Which means what I’ve been saying in my Rate My Team posts about Silvagni not playing could be wrong. Everyone who has him can give themselves an extra 0.5. Unless of course if you’ve got him on the field. Then leave your score as is.
