    It is unrealistic to think we have a player in the reserves who can come in and deliver at the level we expect from McVeigh. But in terms of a replacement player, surely Meredith is the most obvious one. He deserves the chance to play a few senior games, was excellent last week in the reserves, and is probably the closest player on the list to Macca in terms of the role he is ideally suited to.

    How about Bulldog??? Harder body and against the seasoned cats may be a better option than Meredith. He is in form too.

    What's the story with Parker? If he's fit to go he could be a suitable replacement.

    Yeah he has to be the one.

    While he didn't play there last week, McVeigh has spent a fair bit of time at HF this year. With Rohan likely to start and play at HB, I can see Gordon getting a run at HF. That's what I'd like to see anyway.

    Would love to see him get another go at seniors this year after all his effort in the reserves. Fingers are crossed.

    I have visions of the desperate look on Moore's face as he unsuccessfully grasps at a passing Cat. Todd Balym has just said it will be Parker: rightly so.

    Gordon has had ressies watchers in raptures - would love to see him across HF ... However Parker a ready made replacement for McVeigh.

    Got to remember some injury concerns still around Johnson and Spangher so may see a few other forced changes (hope not though!)

    Outs: Jetta, Johnson, McVeigh
    Ins: Parker, Meredith, Nipper

    Rohan to start halfback.

    Here's me hoping

    More likely to be Spang out than Jets.

    i think moore might start as sub. come in when everyone else is buggered, he might look faster, not that the cats are a particularly fast running side

    Hope that's only assuming Johnson is injured. He's best 22 as far as I'm concerned. I can't think of a single time this year that he's been beaten.

    Also, while Parker is better than Jetta, Jetta is coming off his best game of football intensity-wise, and his best half of combined ball-winning, tackling, etc, for the year, while Parker has played one quarter of football over the last 2 weeks. Jetta makes a perfect sub as well, so for these reasons I'm kinda leaning towards keeping Jetta.
