Thread: Changes - Round 13 vs Richmond

  1. #49
    Maybe Cunningham or Rohan (who has been regularly cramping in the third qtr) in the vest? I really think players like Lloyd or Robinson don't offer too much off the bench. Their efficiency and delivery is best realised at ~20 or so possessions. Better to have speed to maintain defensive pressure and intensity.

    Can't hear Tom Harley on the Injury News.

    Is it just me or does Tom speak too softly for the human ear?

    It might be a good chance for the Rooster, as stated he does seem to regularly cramp up late in the game, but then again they have all had a week off....

    If Robinson is dropped, then surely it'll be Towers that comes after a superb performance in the ressies the week before last.

    Eastlake are an average team at best, but his game that day was pretty damn good - if only he can translate what he showed that day into AFL footy, then he will make it. Heaps of gut running, lots of working to space, lots of presenting for the ball - as shown by I think it was 16 marks.

    It really was a superb performance, and whilst I thought Hewett was BOG for his poise and use of the ball, Towers was right up there (and I can fully see why they named him BOG).

    I think Hewett will get a debut this year as well, but I'd say Towers is well and truly first in line if they drop Robbo (assuming they don't give Birdy a reprieve, which sadly seems unlikely).

    I'd imagine Reid will spend more time in the backline to counter the height of the Richmond forward line. That will have a flow on effect on our rotations and positional play generally. The sub is probably slightly more likely to be someone who fits that structure the best....

    ....or Robinson cos that's kind of how we roll. :-)

    We are stuffed!

    Interestingly I was at a wine tasting tonight chatting to an Essendon supporter and umpires were mentioned. They said they thought the two worst umpires were that really small guy (Ray) and the dark curly haired guy(whatever his name is). Couldn't believe it as those two are my pet hates out of a roster of 30+ umpires, and this from an Essendon supporter.

    So it's not just us, these two really are bad umpires!

    Towers probably does deserve another crack at it but it would be a really great occasion to blood (pardon the pun) a first gamer in Hewett...Friday night footy, big crowd at the SCG, 10 year premiership reunion.

    The dark curly haired guy is probably Shane McInerney. Who, slightly coincidentally, is the umpire that almost annoys me as much as the little Ray of sunshine.

    Stevic, McInerney and Chamberlain. The unholy trinity with Nichols as sub.

    I reckon that Myke has been running a leg (knee?) injury as he just hasn't looked that mobile over the past few weeks. Surely they'd want to bring Tom D in to get him up to speed if Myke goes down later in the season? So that's my prediction - Pyke out, Derrickx in.
