    I agree I think that will be the changes. As much as I have liked bj

    I think this is guaranteed pending fitness.

    I guess cunningham will get the vest which is unfortunate as he has played pretty well but was a bit quiet compared to all other mids/fwds

    In - Tippett, Franklin, LRT
    Out - Pyke, Laidler, B.Jack

    LRT will be needed as a back up ruckman and the 3rd tall in the backline to cover the rucking and forward marking ability of Hale and McVoy. This will allow Grundy to play on Roughead, Richards to play on Gunston, Rampe on Breust and Smith on Cyril.

    When LRT goes into the ruck, then Sam Reid can switch down back and cover the resting ruckman.

    Laidler has done nothing wrong, but there is no clear match up for him this week. I certainly would no feel comfortable with him playing on Hale. He comes straight back into the team when the opposition has a smaller forward line.

    Franklin's one job against the Hawks is to drag Gibson away from the play. I would not care if Franklin got no touches as long as Gibson had no influence. You would then back Tippett, Goodes and Reid to beat the remaining defenders one on one, as it's likely the Hawks won't have Lake.

    I would play Cunningham as the Sub as Lloyd gives you more as a midfielder than Cunningham.

    Cunningham has had a challenging role in that some weeks he has had to tag a Stephen Hill and other weeks he has had to run himself into the ground on forward pressure

    I think it will come down to matchups between Lloyd and Cunningham for a few weeks now and I cant pick it - but happy with either !

    others are obvious !

    Think run is more important, franklin for Reid, lrt for Pyke and Tippett for laidler. Will need Cunningham to go back to play defensive mid.

    Agree as well.

    LRT is in poor form atm, and offers no more than Reid, for example, as a backup ruckman. Derickx can play 90% of the game in the ruck a la Goldstein and Minson.

    It's worth noting that the best quarter against Hawthorn this year was Essendon's 3rd qtr 6 goals nil after they lost sole ruckman Paddy Ryder to injury. Once they didn't have a ruckman in the game they were killing the Hawks around the ground. Is there a lesson here?

    Yes, that's real food for thought isn't it? So is the fact that they didn't seem able to keep it going.

    Yep Tippett, Franklin for BJ, Pyke, unless they want to bring LRT in to support Derickx, with Laidler out. Laidler has been improving nicely and with Tippett and Franklin back we are already pretty tall; however, if Derickx gets injured we'd be stuffed, so they may. Tough call.

    Reid to play the swingman role. Jack the sub again.

    Reid needs to take a mark.

    Naismith still injured?
    What about Nankervis? As much as I am happy with TomD's progress I think we need another recognised ruck, not a part timer. The way TomD plays, rough and tumble, he is just as likely to injure himself as the opposition.
