    Cameron, Aliir and now Tippett injured. I guess Pink will be our primary ruck in the NEAFL?

    Have a look at the last 2 weeks
    Papley could be our primary ruck in the 2s

    McVeigh to play on Friday night v Essendon?????? Wow, surely not! He is not match fit, tall, strong or fast. I would love to see him back but not v Essendon.

    Melican and Dawson are the only two I would consider bringing in but I don't know where Dawson sits on the speedy player/physical presence ratings . Both Towers and Hayward are speedy but both get kept away from the ball, or pushed off it too easily. May all depend on match ups again.

    My feeling is that Franklin will be ok, but it's hard to predict. It was good of Menadue to speak up in his defence though.

    Rohan is safe, particular while Cunningham is out. We need his speed and defensive pressure, whether he's playing forward or back (I prefer him forward but I'm sure the coaches have their reasons). Dawson must be getting very close but I think we'll be reluctant to make many more changes than is necessary.
    Their second tall is Hooker. Their third is Stewart a 198cm ruckman, ex GWS.

    Hopefully it was just cramp. At the game I was listening to Triple M and at one stage the boundary rider said that he was struggling to come off with severe cramp.

    What annoys me most is he's getting paid 4 times as much as Newman/ Papley ect.

    Not Tippetts fault he is injury prone, I am sure he would rather not be.
