    Menzel stays but will need a good game. Haywood to play reserves.
    Given our improved form and method, Clarke is a lock.

    I think:

    Jones In for McVeigh.
    Kennedy In for thurlow.

    Rose was good and deserves another game. MenZel was also good esp in the 2nd half and his skill and vision was important setting up goals.

    Clarke has been very good the last month negating and in some cases completely shutting down the oppositions key mid, a vital role that makes him best 22 going forward. Do not underestimate the negating role in winning games, Cripps not shut down, Neale shut down, Blues shock win.

    I'm available, but after last Sunday, I don't think I'm gunna get picked.
    Pity we have injured, I otherwise wouldn't make one change.
    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.

    Clarke in lockdown form like on the weekend gives our playmakers so much more freedom

    What did everyone think or rose on the weekend ?

    He fairly composed and nicely predictable for his team mates

    Thought Rose was OK. 15 touches no tackles. Kicked that great goal in the first quarter and seemed to play all over the ground. I suspect if we get all those cattle back after the bye, he'll end up back in the NEAFL.

    I agree with this....no need to make wholesale changes after a great win. Injuries may decide some changes for the MC but four in, four out is too many under the current circumstances.

    I'm with Ralph Dawg on this one:

    Ins: JPK, Cunningham (or Jones)
    Outs: McVeigh, Thurlow

    Menzel and Rose to stay and Hayward back via NEAFL. Healthy competition for senior spots is a good thing.

    There's a great little segment - I think in Q2 - of Rose handing off to Heeney as he gallops past and making sure he puts it a good metre in front of him. You can't buy that kind of small but invaluable touch. It's one mark of a mature footballer.

    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)

    That handball from Rose was sublime....Heeney didn't have to break stride and he was moving! I was greatly impressed....

    Agreed re Rose. On another player, Clarke should take heed as he wants to handball as soon as he gets it and puts his team mates under immediate pressure. Notwithstanding this he is doing a great job as a lock down player.

    I wonder if it might be a good idea to give Blakey a spell for three weeks or so. looks very sore and to be feeling the pinch. Think we did this with Heeney in his first year. Would enable Hayward to come back in if he's fit.

    I thought Rose adapted reasonably well to a very challenging day for him

    Run with roles on lots of amazing players from Shuey to Sheede etc

    But he did make 3 very basic mistakes under no pressure

    I think he can evolve from this but there could be other players we should persist with in this rebuild stage
