    Agree. I can't see Towers having an impact in a game against Hawthorn. Bird is not the ideal sub, but not sure who else it'd be.

    I'd be very happy to see Bird go in, but otherwise I wouldn't mind giving a guernsey to one of the ressies who's been doing well - perhaps Robinson - and leave him there for a couple of matches. The experience would be beneficial to both player and team.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Cunningham in for Towers and Goodes to sub.
    Give Harry the job on Brad Hill and let McGlynn run with Mitchell.
    Hawthorn cut us up with their kicking when we're not able to apply red hot pressure which is why I think Goodes is a liability and Bird isn't needed. Really excited to see how Tom Mitchell goes against the Hawks mids.

    Generally agree with this. McGlynn is a better tagger than Bird and with Mitchell playing so well there really isn't a spot for him atm.

    Hard to know what to do about the sub, whether Goodes stays in the 21 or goes back to sub. It may come down to whether we feel Hill needs a tag or not.

    Like your thinking!

    ...
    Benny had a great game on Selwood last night but over the last year or two I think Bird is the better defensive, tagging midfielder. That could bedown to McGlynn having a bit of a rough run with injuries. I think that Bird is similar to Smooch in that you don't notice how well they are playing because they tend to take their "man" out of the game/spotlight. Bird has only really stood out when snapping some great goals on the run.

    Will Towers start or be the sub again?

    I think we need to play our hardest 22 senior players, and that means Bird over Cunningham (and Towers). Also, Bird's form was barely off when he was dropped; Cunningham's form has been off all year.
