What's more, I wonder if the same logic will keep Hewett out too as he seems to be performing this same type of role for the reserves? What do others think? Has Matt80 been proven right? (despite the one game where all 4 played - against the Bulldogs when we lost)
    Yes I think it seems the way. Horses talk of team balance when asked about bird bein in the reserves seems to back that up. On hewett it depends how much of an outside and forward role the coaches think he can play. I'd be keen to see him at senior level like Robinson has come in and performed well.

    Robinson sub most likely.
    Hope Gaz is in the 21, his prelim final against the Roos was probably the best game of his career and a fast track at Etihad will suit him perfectly.

    This is off topic I know, and we've seen it all before, but it's worth a look. Go to Relive your favourite '05 moment! - sydneyswans.com.au, watch the vid and check Nick Davis favourite moment at the end, and more to the point, check the crowd noise. Best crowd EVER!! I watched the last bit about 8 times and had to stop, as I was becoming emotional! How I wish I was actually there on that night.....

    Can't see them putting Gaz as sub, he went alright last week on the GC I thought and was pretty solid. As you say Robinson is most likely to be sub I'd think.

    I personally think the perSistence with gas makes sense given his role and given that towers who could play his role is no better BUT I must say it is a frustrating slow burn week to week

    Makes sense. Gives us balance in the emergencies too considering the likely sub is a midfielder.

    I think there is something odd going on. Both Nankervis and Hiscox are out of the reserves team (plus Rose out too). It's unusual to have two senior emergencies not named in the reserves. Don't they normally only take one travelling emergency ?

    I smell a late withdrawal and another debutant probably nankervis.
