    Goodes- would ideally need to be subbed out in the 3rd quarter.

    Reid - Wouldn't want to be relying on his body given the current state of Goodes and Tippett.

    I don't think they would risk going into this game, with these three together, given their respective circumstances.

    But I agree with your general sentiment that the injured players should be rested......My changes

    OUT : McVeigh, K Jack, Jetta, Franklin

    IN : Mitchell, B Jack, Reid, Rohan (sub),

    Team:

    B : Smith Grundy Rampe
    HB : Shaw Richards Malceski
    C : Lloyd Parker Cunningham
    HF : Goodes Reid McGlynn
    FF : B Jack LRT Bird
    Foll : Pyke Kennedy Hannebery
    Bench: Laidler, Derrickx, Mitchell
    Sub : Rohan
    I don't think that team would beat Brisbane. It might be better to play the strongest team then rest players for the Hawks game that's followed by the bye. At least you'd bank four points over the three weeks.

    Resting players is for teams late in the season playing in the finals. We're nowhere that.

    Ernie has put up a good team there. Franklin, Jack and Mcveigh, I'm sure are carrying injuries. When you carry injuries like that, there is always a danger you can do something to turn the injury into an extended layoff. We don't want those guys having extended layoff periods, so why not give them a week to off to try and shake off those injuries. After Brisbane they face the Hawks who will hit them as hard as Fremantle did.

    If we can't beat Brisbane with the team that Ernie has put up, then we are not a finals team.

    I note with my above comments that I'm not a Doctor or Physio, just expressing an armchair opinion.

    Did not do much when in the seniors and, from reports, has not done enough in the Magoo's to demand a game back in the Snr's.

    I would not mind seeing either Biggs or Membrey get a game though. I am especially keen to see Membrey get a go.
    We haven't really had a good medium sized fwd, apart from Morton, since (well going back to Craig O'Brien is a bit much isn't it?)

    Regarding Jacks' injury on the Sunday Footy show yesterday he mentioned he had hurt his back. If you go back to the last trail game against Brisbane he came off late in the game with a hit to the back.

    So I would rest Jack, McVeigh and Jetta (he does not have the same level of pace he had in previous seasons). I think LRT may have a weeks rest for that hit. Buddy may be out as well if he is still sore.

    INs : Tippett, O'Keefe, Mitchell, Rohan/Towers.

    We need to get all the players fully fit for Hawthorn and Essendon games coming up.

    He's been wearing padding to protect his ribs, right side. During, and particularly after, matches he stands around with his right arm bent up and tucked in...As he grimaces with every breath...

    I don't need a medical degree to see he has either badly bruised rib cartilage( which is very painful and can linger for weeks)..Or he has a busted rib or 2.

    The back talk seems like an attempted smoke screen...But I doubt it's fooling anyone.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    I like Ernie's team too but with a couple of possible changes. I think LRT needs to join ROK, Rohan and Mitchell in the 2's and each of them should stay there until they can play 4 quarters of dominant or at least good football two weeks in a row. But for Ernie's team I agree that Mitchell would have to come in and if KT is not available LRT would have to stay. What a test it would be for Harry, Lloyd and B. Jack, and Goodesy and Reid would have stand up too. Bring it on!

    I know it is early days but I am not convinced by Laider yet and would really like to see Biggs get a game but he is coming back from a limited pre-season too. So my sub would be Robinson or maybe Membrey mainly because they have been playing well in the 2's.
