  1. Sydney: Tom McCartin to miss again this week after suffering concussion in round 8.

    “Tommy won’t play. He’s coming along pretty well, he was good today but he’ll be out of the team. We’re looking after Tommy, while he’s good today we’ll give him another week,” John Longmire said.

    “Just because we give him another week doesn’t mean that we’re overly concerned in that regard, we’ve just got to make sure we look after him.”

      Has a Break Even of -30 and last 2 scores of 116 & 83.

  20. Port Adelaide: Connor Rozee (hamstring) and Jase Burgoyne (groin) every chance this week – both face fitness tests.

    There’s optimism that Rozee will be good to go, it’s just a matter of whether they give him an extra week rather than bringing him back against Hawks.

    Jordan Sweet is back training fully after recovering from illness, while Lachie Jones will miss at least another game with his hamstring strain.

  21. St Kilda: Jack Steele

    “St Kilda captain Jack Steele has courageously played through a knee injury in the early part of the season in a gutsy bid to lift his team.
    Steele, 28, battled through pain and restriction in his knee and required regular treatment from the Saints’ medicos to play games over the past month.
    The hard-nut midfielder is hopeful he has overcome the worst of the inflammation issue and was one of the Saints’ top-two players in the loss to Hawthorn on Saturday.”

      1. Steely Green a second-year forward was the 55th pick of the 2022 NAB AFL Draft.
        “His work rate and team-first mentality were on show right throughout the day,” VFL coach Steve Morris said after Green starred in a reserves game against Casey last month, registering 17 disposals, 10 contested possessions, five marks, four inside-50s, three clearances and a goal.

        “It’s great to see him have a big impact on the game.”

        1. I don’t think Hinkley said Sweet was definitely playing this week, but if anyone heard this, can you please let us know

          If Sweet was ill or had Covid last week, he might still not be back to 100% fitness

          So this week, Port may opt to play both ruckmen

          The issue for our SC sides is that this impacts Sweets scoring this week – and then I understand that Soldo has started running again

          So surely Soldo is now only 1 to 2 weeks away?

          Ports injury list earlier this week listed Soldo at 2 to 3 weeks

      1. Thank you, thebopper.

        After playing higher up the ground recently, Harry Sheezel is likely to return to half-back to replace McKercher.

      2. Just to clarify, article on AFL site does say this, but it is not a direct quote.
        Clarkson actually said “that’s a possibility” when asked whether Sheezel will return to half back role this week. He further clarified “he’ll probably have a little bit of both this week, but I couldn’t really tell you exactly which way it’s gonna turn” in respect to half back or midfield.

        Source North Melbourne website video titled “Clarko on Simpkin, Sheezel and battling the Bombers” – from 2:23mins to 3:14mins.

        1. Harry Sheezel

          Alastair Clarkson: “Now there’s a necessity to maybe take him to half-back because McKercher is going to be out for a week or 2. We’ll work that out. He’ll probably have a bit of both but I couldn’t tell you exactly.”

  28. Port Adelaide:

    Ken Hinkley this morning on Sweet/Visentini:

    “They have both played well in their last AFL game, that makes a strong case to play both. Jordon is absolutely fine. He has trained all week. No problem at all. This week’s decision is really difficult. Both have played their last game really well. Form is the first thing you look at.”

      1. Same. But come off it, Visentini flattered by the Cats not having an actual ruck last week and subbing Stanely.

        FREE MY MAN JORDON SWEET!

        1. I think that port feel that Visentini is their long term ruck- I thought he might have played from the get go this year- they actually look really good when he plays there, it’s just tank I think.

  32. First time back to this site in 2 years. It’s nowhere near as informative as it’s previous iterations.
    On a mobile you have to scroll to the bottom to find the recent comments. What happened to the easily viewable coaches box?

    2. Yeah sorry we’re not meeting your expectations, Dubious. Truth is, the WordPress theme we’re using is 10 years old and simply can’t keep up with what we want to do these days. We made a decision a couple of months ago to struggle through to the end of the season and overhaul it then rather than try to do it during. All the info is still here, it just takes a bit more effort to find it. Again, we’re sorry and we appreciate you still dropping past.

      Thanks JAMHED for stepping in to provide an explanation.

    3. I don’t think you see the “Scroll to bottom” button at the top of each thread.

      Motts, I also feel you don’t need to apologise to a person that hasn’t used the site in 2 years. You put in enough effort to keep this site running. They just take things for granted and don’t see the work done behind the scenes.

      The coaches boxes has become an inconvenience for some, but I find this thread works well for adding extra information. I doubt many would have the time to go onto Twitter and keep up to date with everything either.

      Been on this site for at least 7-8 seasons, so it’s obviously been good enough to keep me here.

      Without you Motts, there would be no site to begin with. You’re doing great Motts

  33. Hi Dubious, firstly welcome back.
    Unfortunately as you have just come back you would have missed the multiple explanations for this.

    In the preseason unfortunately the ‘coaches box’ was causing an IT glitch with other functions on the site (these are the technical terms from my limited IT vocabulary) so this version of the coaches box is the best temporary solution the SCTalk team (the hardworking brilliant team) could provide.

    I believe they are still working through an improved version over the course of the year.

    Hope that helps explain it.

  36. First trade Roberts to Sullivan

    Second trade was Reid to Butters (non-Butters owner has been a hard watch)

    Sweet is not playing … again

    I have Jackson in forward line to swing to ruck, meaning Darcy Jones has to play on field (I had to do this last week).

    Or:

    I can hold Reid and trade Sweet to Marshall.

    Meaning I have Reid & Marshall vs Butters & Jones.

    Marshall was in my radar as my Sweet upgrade in a few weeks time with his great run after byes. His price is about as low as it will go.

    TU: Reid to Butters

    TD: Sweet to Marshall

      1. Hey CT,

        Love the info available on SCT. A big thx to you and the team. Please keep up the great work you all do.

        RE the Rankine bounce controversy; and full disclosure I’m an Adelaide Crows supporter. I say all of the below knowing yesterday our coaching was inferior, and play came on too late. They didn’t compete as a winning side.

        The scrutiny about the call has less to do with whether it was correct application of the rules – according to the book and video playback it was; there’s no dispute.

        The reaction has more to do with the consistency of the call being made. There was a similar play in another game from yesterday that the post game show aired – no call from the umpires.

        If umpires are not going to consistently and fairly apply the rules, then why make that call at such an influential point in the match. Or, at all.

        Personally, I’m pretty non-plussed on the umpiring that Adelaide receive during key points of matches. It feels it’s been happening for quite some time and has had a material impact on seasons previously. This is yet another example. It gets frustrating. I realise many clubs fans could claim the same; it’s just clearly a sore point with ours.

        If given the choice, I think I’d prefer every game to have more whistles and be less play-on through tighter officiating, than poorly enforced rules applied at key points in the match which influence the result.

        Rant over. Thx for listening. Please commence regularly scheduled programming.

        1. Newsflash: Crows supporter complains about umpiring.
          I personally don’t want to watch your whistle blown at everything kind of game.
          I’d be happier with no boundary umpires- last touch scenario, back to one field umpire and you get what you get.
          So many media and coaching people go with the “it’ll cost someone a final one day” so what! Life is never fair, all the things that should go well don’t always….
          I’m sure bulldog supporters could find so many things in the game that cost a very good team a shot at flag…. Amongst a million others.
          Just play better earlier in the game/season and take the umpires out of it.

  41. Brisbane: Eric Hipwood will miss next week’s game against Hawthorn after copping a one-week ban for a dump tackle on Nick Vlastuin.

    The incident has been graded careless conduct, high contact and medium impact, triggering a one-game ban.

    Vlastuin has also been fined $6250, which can be reduced to $3750 with an early guilty plea, after striking Hipwood in retaliation to the tackle.
