    1. I’m thinking Day to McGovern and then Doc to Daicos.

      McGovern will find more of the footy and take more kick outs with Doc out, he’s got Crows and then back to Marvel where he just scored 124.

      Day an easy upgrade target in 2 weeks


  1. Tom Lynch has also had his case dismissed by the Tribunal.

    Chairman Jeff Gleeson said Lynch intended to fly for the mark and once he realised he misjudged it, kept his eyes on the ball and then braced for contact.

    “He did not bump and he did not engage in rough conduct,” Gleeson said.


  2. Gees, the tribunal is pretty i affective in its current format.
    Get suspended- challenge it and you’re free- especially if you play for Blues or Tigers!
