    1. Zerrett may be out for the day after copping a stray arm to the jaw early in the first. May have a concussion issue so he may be kept out of the game for safety

  1. After the first quarter of the game, I’ve traded out stringer and Mcgrath… and replaced them with Devon smith and Adam Saad. They are looking good so far!

        1. It is definitely more reliable during the season, but for some reason I have only had dt scores and no sc scores as they only pop up now and again today.

          Bit disappointed on the game today though. I expected a closer game than this

  4. 3 qtr time and Smith is on 90 points so he looks like has confirmed himself as a mid pricer. In a game where Essendon have more control this may be even better.

    Note: actually take stringer I want him as my pod 😉

    1. Had a concussion/head knock very early in the first so since it was only JLT they rested him. Same happened for Zerrett and Astbury

    1. Corey Ellis finally did something, yay! Good user of the ball, just not sure our style of football suits him too well. Would be handy dpp if he could string a few games together…..

  6. D Smith looked like a potential top 10 forward (based on this game). It will be interesting to see if this is reflected in the next game. Whilst Higgins is a popular rookie pick, I struggle to see how is in the best 22 for Richmond given the depth and strength of their team at the moment. I am thinking he might be a downgrade option later in the year. Just my view.

    1. If Smith plays predominantly midfield in the next JLT game as well, you really have no choice but to include him. The only downside is that he has a history of knee soreness.

    1. Merrett went down half way through the first quarter so it is hard to tell if it was more because he was down, but it did seem he was still playing mid during the first few minutes that Merrett was on the field.
      He was still rotating mid and fwd though
