    Ah crap. LRT in; White to CHF. Jessie's game last night was the worst since his recent return to the side. Dropped marks and losing most 50/50s. Perhaps he plays better with the pressure off.

    I'm concerned about Spangher too, he looked pretty banged up when subbed off.

    I think the chairing off at fulltime suggests Tadhg has played his last game and it was decided before yesterday's game that it would be the case.

    I'm with ugg, even though he didn't hand the Brions a couple of goals, Mattner was giving away enough for all of them, he didn't do anything that suggested he is anywhere near the player we know, love and need.

    I thought White played fairly well. Sure he lost some 50/50's but he was phenomenal in the ruck and shot off his great quickfire handballs to set up important plays.

    Also thought Spangher was fantastic. Tadhg was suprisingly consistent for his farewell match.

    Outs:
    Jetta, Malceski

    Ins:
    Reid (if fit) or Gordon (if not) and Grundy

    If Reid is genuinely in doubt and consequently doesn't play, I'd be brining Pyke in. He takes 2nd ruck/forward role that Jesse is taking up and Jesse plays permanent forward.

    Jesse was very poor yesterday up forward but his 2 games before were good enough to give him another shot.

    IMO he's cooked for 2011, it's been a long season for even the mature players. He needs to work hard in the off season and come out next year all guns blazing, when no doubt I again will go on defending him. There is soooo much upside if we can get him up and running...
    It was the sort of football he played in the reserves the week before so i was surprised he was even an emergency let alone play. I'm a massive fan of Jets. I think he'll give us something special in the coming years but he's done for this year.

    Out: Jetta, Kennelly
    Yep

    Herald Sun has thoughts on ins/outs in their finals preview. They reckon we're "close to our best side."

    Then again, despite listing the game as being at Etihad, the rest of their notes are about ANZ so what do they know...

    On the TV after the game Goodes said that Reid and Grundy both would have played if it was a final.

    What did you good people think of Monty's "tackle" on ROK? ROK looked very p'd off about it at the time....apologies if this is discussed elsewhere.

    Nothing wrong with Monty's hit on ROK. Great hit in fact. Perfectly legal.

    I just can't wait to see guys like Parker/Rohan playing finals footy. I think they'll both be fantastic September kids in the coming years. Ultra competitors.

    I think he was simply being chaired off after his likely last game at his home ground. He said last week that he hoped to play deep into finals. And I thought he played his best game for ages - including some run and dash and none of those stupid decisions under pressure that I've suggested he should be dropped for. We're not Brisbane - he will play I reckon.

    And Marty was up against it without Reg, the other bookend in defence. Did well in the circumstances. It looked to me like Hanners butchered the ball more.
