  1. FINAL TEAMS | No late changes for either side.

    Jack Newnes (CARL) and Jamaine Jones (WCE) are the medical subs.


    1. Afternoon, CT.

      Don’t see how we get up here in our current form, away from home and with no Shuey, Kelly, Kennedy, Allen or McGovern.

      …secretly hoping we pull something out though.


      1. Hi GD, I still think that we are a chance.

        Connor West and Mark Hutchings did very well in the WAFL. Hutchings must get a run next week.


        1. Yeah, read that this morning.

          Hutchings surely in to curb Dusty next week, agree.


      2. Off to a good start.
        Definitely one of the harder ones to tip this round.

        Darling is having a hell of a season for the eagles.


  2. Just Walsh in this game but I was so tempted by Hurn this week but went for Heeney instead! Now watch that burn me.
    Go Eagles!


      1. That didn’t age well! Hurn on 43 at HT. I must have jinxed him.
        Spent fair bit of time on the bench that quarter. 67% tog


    1. With the Eagles bye now in R14, probably a pass.

      I’d been considering him lately (always been my favourite player) but shouldn’t be loading up on any more R14 bye players.

      Will be very tricky to field 18 that week, even with extra trades.


  3. Just Walsh in this one for me with the big C. Hoping for a good game and walsh to go 125+. If someone can tell me how a professional afl player whos a forward cant make the distance from 35 ill be amazed. Carlton under pressure early and he doesn’t make the distance from 35… embarassing!


  4. Half Time : It’s a close one, and both medical subs have been activated with Harry McKay & Brad Sheppard out of the game. WCE lead the Blues 8.5.53 to 6.9.45

  5. CRipps reverting back to his impersonation of a spud form from earlier in the year … last week just an outlier … every week i’ve never been able to get rid of him for various reasons … and he’ll be stuck in my side till the end …

    Two biggest regrets of this year – Cripps over Walsh and Dow over Impey … killed my season from the get go …


    1. hahaha that one has me laughing!!! Nice one CT!

      It’s OK Mottsy … we all feel sorry for you!!
