    It looks like it is going to be a wet and greasy night game.

    I would prefer Sinclair to Naismith, he seems more mobile and would have more match fitness.

    I would like to see Jack in a small forward role. I think we need someone to help Papley/Hayward crumb off our talls and apply defensive pressure.

    Apparently Florent is good in the wet. But I can't see him having much impact against the bulldog pressure in miserable conditions.

    Do we have any rovers?
    Remember when we had rovers?
    A rover or two would probably help.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    Showing your age Annie, we had ruck/rovers as well, I think Gerard Healy was one. I'm happy with the new terminology but cringe when I hear the descriptor "quarterback" used by the odd commentator.

    Aren't most of them odd?

    Is there a new terminology?
    I must have missed it.
    I thought quarterback was a reference to half-back... but only a quarter of the way!

    I'd just love to see maybe two players go for the obligatory screamer (instead of five or six), with the other three (or four) players standing back a bit ready to pick up the crumbs.

    Tippett is not a forward. He may have been recruited as a forward, but that does not make him one.

    KJ is a certainty given the conditions. It is just a matter of how many ruckmen we play. If they drop Tippett or Sinkers then they could play AA as the mobile tall who pinch hits 10 mins every quarter in the ruck. For mine it is:
    IN: Kizza and AA
    OUT: Hayward & Sinkers

    There's a message. Great to see selectors listening to RWOers.

    I like the ins. Would love Allir to crack back into the side sometime soon again.
