    Changes for round 7 V Cats

    If Lloyd and Hanners are fit then I imagine there will be only one change...

    OUT : Heeney

    IN : Bird

    Goodes played half a game, plenty of minutes, so may hold his place as the sub again.

    Sad to see heeney start with Injury. I sent him a tweet so he knows people are behind him.

    I agree that bird in for heeney is the logical choice. But sub two weeks in a row for Goodes doesn't seem likely. That would mean bird would likely be the sub and that doesn't seem like a good use of the subs vest either. Maybe Goodes will be okay being sub again seeing as he played half the game last night.

    For me it is still

    Out heeney
    In bird

    And who knows for sub. Goodes is best for the sub but I'm not sure they'll do it

    I don't think Bird for Heeney is a like for like replacement. I'd be leaning more towards Cunningham or Towers to provide us with more pace.
    Agree that Goodes has to be sub, otherwise we are simply too top heavy in the forward line and guys like Enright, Rivers, Taylor and (Mackie) if he plays will cut us up.
    Will be really interesting to see how Selwood's hand pulls up as well...definitely looked broken on Friday night. If he misses then they might as well bring our odds in to $1.05.

    I believe Bird came out because of speed.

    That's why Mitchell couldn't get a game, now that he has, he's too good to drop.

    So they had to drop someone else without pace. And you wouldn't be dropping Parker or Kennedy, but if you have all of them in, you've got a pretty slow midfield.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the bright in Cunningham, Towers or someone like Jones in and left Bird out.

    or maybe even B. Jack who's been looking good in the 2nds

    If bird doesn't come in then I would kinda like Robinson to get a game. By all reports he's been playing really well is the reserves with good efficiency and skills and tackling pressure. What do people think ?

    Time for another debutant - Hewett is the one, silky skills and can find the ball.

    Yea Hewett is the other guy I would consider but for me I gave the edge to Robinson. Would be happy to see either get a go

    I think BJ has been really disappointing as he just hasn't kicked on in my book - I've seen nothing in the ressies games I've watched this season to say he has been playing well enough to be knocking on the door for senior selection. Had a couple of good moments yesterday, but nothing to me to suggest he is next in line.

    Its a tough one trying to guess who would replace Heeney. I watched the ressies game stream yesterday and neither Cunningham nor Towers really stood out - but neither did any of the names being mentioned here (BJ, Hewett) either.

    I'd guess Bird for Heeney is most likely.

    What the hell for. They give us nothing.
