Thread: Changes Round 15 V Melbourne

    Towers isn't going anywhere.

    Won't happen but I'd still like to see us play with only Naismith as ruck with backup from Towers, Reg, or even Melican.

    Therefore,

    In: Jones
    Out: Sinclair

    Dont look at what Melican is doing himself although i reckon he is doing more than enough
    Look at what he is allowing Grundy to do

    This is why we need Alir in when fit cos he can release Rampe

    After two games where he was invisible except for errors and basically did nothing positive you think he's staying up?

    Out: Fawlty Towers, In: Jones - immediately makes us much better

    Towers in the Ruck....Not sure whether to laugh or cry.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect... MT

    My guess is Jones and McVeigh in, Towers and one of Florent \ Hayward out. Hayward only if he needs a rest though.

    Jones is an automatic in. After that there's a logjam of players jostling to come in over the next 2-3 weeks: McVeigh, Aliir, Dawson, Robinson, Cunningham. I'm just not sure who makes way. The obvious candidates are Towers and Florent. After that ...

    Whilst I also think towers should be omitted his not that bad in the ruck. He has pinch hit there in the ressies and he actually has quite a decent vertical leap. Physically he is undersized yes but he's "expendable" as far as injury. Better than risking buddy and Reid in the ruck

    We brought in melican for the tall essendon forward line. Therefore against Melbourne, he will make way for Jones.

    Towers is our in and under tagger. Stats don't matter when you are pressuring and tackling. He'll only be replaced like for like... And that ain't McVeigh who is the exact opposite.

    Newman could get Hayward a rest. Unlikely though.

    Florentine 50/50 to stay.

    Florent. Damn autocorrect.

    Didn't Melican only get dropped for the Bulldogs when we went in with a small defence. I think he stays v Melbourne

    You're right, the stats don't matter....

    They don't show the countless missed tackles.

    The constant coughing up of the ball due to bad decision making and panicking.

    If he was masquerading as an 'in and under tagger', it was unrecognisable.

    He's got to go.
