    1. Thanks Nato, I wondered where the Port players had disappeared too.? I had to re-do them.
      I must remember to thoroughly proof read before posting.

      Adelaide team fixed. Apologies


  1. Looks like Skinner might come in to replace Aliir, which would be great.

    Ward not on the injury list, which is good. Just a gameday cramp then?

    Think Dixon still holds a spot as long as Allen’s out.

    While Hayes and Martin have played their way into B22 it would be good to see returns (namely Ryder, Snelling & Stringer) put them to the test before those of us who have to bring them in on the bubble do so.

    Thanks, CT.


  2. Fremantle: Update.

    Nat Fyfe – “With his sore back, it’s been a little bit frustrating, we probably haven’t seen the improvement that we wanted and certainly that Nathan wants, some days are better than others,” Bell said.

    “We haven’t given up hope for this weekend but we’ll just see on Thursday.” Peter Bell, Executive GM of Football.

    Sean Darcy – “He had the calf awareness and he’s put in a lot of work over the weekend. We think that he’ll be available for main training and also available for selection.” Peter Bell, Executive GM of Football.

    Nathan Wilson will also be a test for this weekend.
