  1. Swallow and Harris for me … will be very interesting to see how they go. They could rack up 100pts a piece or 80pts total!!

  2. I’ve gone one at the moment – Swallow – but if Selwood gets ruled out then in comes Harris. With Petrie coming back, I can’t find room for Matera. And I’ll give Duigan another crack while (E)’ing Stanley.

  4. i’ve got 4 Suns, but will probably only play Toy (in place of Otten) in the first 22. matera, smith and swallow on the bench though.

    Maybe Swallow for libratore, not sure though yet….

  5. Swallow and Harris for me with Coad/Stanley maybe Def E over Pederson. Don’t have Matera ’cause he’ll find it hard to win the pill when its down the other end.

    How about a poll on which rookies we think will make the GCS 22. Obviously Swallow/Harris are montys so the liost could look something like this:
    Coad
    Toy
    Tape
    Stanley
    Hutchins
    Bennell
    Iles
    Lock
    Caddy
    Smith
    Gorringe
    Matera
    Dixon
    Prestia
    Day
    Patrick
    Of those 16, about 8-10 should play.

  8. Most likely will start Stanley for Otten this week.

    Swallow and Harris are fighting with Conca, Libba and Bewick for two spots and, despite the performance of the three who played last week, I don’t think that I can overlook the Suns boys.

    Matera is up against Petrie, Darling and Richardson for the two spots with Knights on a bye, so he may make it.

    Overall, at least two, likely three, small chance of four

  9. At this stage, it’s only D.Swallow in the team. We’ll see what happens on the training track and @ selection.

  10. Stanley in for Otten/McKernan.

    Swallow in for Selwood (if nec).

    Two to choose from Petrie, Varcoe, Matera, Darling and Richardson. Any thoughts?

    Best to wait for the team list before making final decisions.

  11. So far I have just got Swallow playing this week and Prestia as an Emergency. Explanation of tactics as follows:

    FWDs:
    * Tapscott onto the ground, was an E last week, benched Gamble.
    * I’ve swapped Prestia from my mids bench to my fwd bench as an (*E).
    * This is in exchange for Pavlich (moved from fwd line to midfield possie).
    * Knights-bye also benched for Richardson (is this a stupid move- they are playing Collingwood, will he get smashed?)

    Mids:
    * Moved Sylvia to my FWD line, for I. Smith, then moved Smith to the bench (Sylvia playing of course- in Pav’s old spot)
    * Ed Barlow (possible trade pending) on the bench for Swallow to get a run.
    * Kept Conca as an E (Vs. Saints- have a feeling he could get a run on Milne, though Milne usually plays well against the tiges as has the experience. Therefore sticking to him as an E at this stage.)

    Backs:
    * Brought Lower on for Otten-bye. Just worry about having 2 Freo backmen on. They are playing at home but it’s against Geelong. ARGH!
    * Listed Robbie Tarrant as an (*E) but not sure whether to have him (Vs. Collingwood) or Duigan as my 7th Back… Duigan at the moment.

    Opinions much appreciated! ๐Ÿ™‚
