    Even if he were to get himself suspended for a third minor offence (and I don't think wrestling charges even count toward the tally of three), he doesn't wipe the slate clean. From hereon, he faces a week's suspension for each further minor offence he commits until the end of the season (as does Jones).

    So playing inside the rules and cutting out the cheap stuff seems like the best strategy...

    He was very good going back to the start of 2014 when we belted the Crows over there. Wouldn't surprise me to see him considered for selection, sounds like he has come back in decent form in the ressies.

    I have just looked at the 5 day forecast for Adelaide; between 5 and 20 mils each day until only 1-5 mils on Friday

    As for Harry v Will. I might agree with you if Harry was at peak form but when was his last AFL game? He's had 2 passable games back in the NEAFL since returning from a long injury absence. He's not screaming for a recall and it's doubtful if he's best 22 even at his best. I think he could be good injury cover but that's all for 2017. When he's in form he's about as good as Robbo and slightly ahead of Foote (in my book). That's Harry v Will right now. Longer term, Will has much more upside. I do agree Harry's got a stronger, harder body than Will and probably offers a tad more defensively but I'm sticking with Will even so.
    No point having a harder body if you are not prepared to put it on the line.

    This article would seem to cover most possibilities Sydney midfield bull on track for Crows - AFL.com.au

    Looks like Kennedy will play, Naismith won't and there will be 2 ruckmen - Sinkers and Tippo vs Jacobs.
    If Newman gets up, who would come out? Hayward maybe?

    Kennedy in, Towers out. More of the same from Dean. Dropped chest mark, delivery to the toes of Buddy, turnover at halfback after kicking off one step; he'll cost us a final if we persist with him.
    C'mon Chels!

    Goal assist to Hayward.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Wet here all week and a night game so probably not a game to be going tall. Crows thrashed Port on a wet track a couple of weeks back.

    Maybe the Harry of previous years but not this year.

    McGovern plays i50 mostly, while Lynch floats up the ground more, so depends where Longmire would prefer that mismatch to occur. I'm 95% certain we'll just use Reid as a backup defender like you said.
    I've always pictured McGovern as a lead-up player and not a tall mark. Could be wrong. Isn't he only about 190cm?

    "Taylor Walker (48 goals this season), Eddie Betts (45) and Josh Jenkins (38) are all capable of kicking bags of goals for the home side, but Tom Lynch, Mitch McGovern and Charlie Cameron have also booted 20-plus majors, giving Adelaide multiple options to score".

    It's going to be a hard night for our backmen.
