    Roses first full game. Does that mean he will score 12 goals ?

    Looking forward to seeing Rose go around - hope the occasion doesn't get to him.

    Could be enjoyable to see us playing with 2 small/med forwards in Heeney and Rose - don't tell me it might just click with horse finally that you cant just rely on huge guys up front.

    Carn the bloods - send the Kangapoos back where they came from with their tail between their legs again

    Anything up with Jack? Or just a mix up of the playing group?

    I like the Rose is in, adds a little to the forward line without Reidy and Buddy.

    Towers and Rose will add a little X factor to the forward line.

    Now we've got two match threads. Is it possible to delete one before they both get lengthy and we get confused, please?

    It's definitely better balanced with rose in because he had a defender come back in smithy. That's prob also why jones is sub for balance. He will be a permanent selection next year without shaw

    We brought in Rose so that Towers will think it's a NEAFL game and play a blinder.

    The fact that Rose is starting is the shock. It shows that Horse is thinking we need to go full on X factor (surprised X Richards wasn't selected ).

    my guess is we will see Towers moving up to the wing / midfield more and that way Rose can stay in the forward half

    Towers was very good in finding the ball and posting up for a give and go last two weeks but was not accurate into the goals

    Rose is a goal sneak and we need the points as an early lead in the wet will be crucial

    then bring on jones to shut it down

    Very inexperienced forward line, Rose, Heeney and Towers wouldn't be 40 games between them all.

    Love the red and white lights as you walk out from the train station. And a red and white band swinging away. Go the bloods!
