    Menzel for Jack
    Clark for Ronke
    Stoddart for Dawson
    Knoll or Amartey for Cunningham

    We gain some experience with Menzel and Clark and lose some with Jack. I was at the game on Saturday and it was hard to spot Jack most of the time. He didn't impact the play and if you're bringing in a senior player, you would expect that they need to find the pill and use it effectively.

    Stodds has been playing well off half-back in the NEAFL for a while now and deserves another crack.

    I thought Knoll looked better in the ruck against Southport too. He was actually jumping into the contest and his work around the ground was good. Amartey was a little more athletic. It's time to push AA back into that intercept role in defence where he can dominate and leave Reid up forward for most of the game. Our structure has been a little off with AA in the ruck.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Fox was picked though. He had a pretty good game too.

    Someone has incorrectly posted on the "Changes for Essendon" thread, this is the thread for Freo this week.

    Be interesting to see if this weeks team is our youngest since .......

    That was me, it was in relation to Harry's selection in that game after an extended period out with a groin injury, which surprise surprise he has re-injured

    They may still choose to bring in a ruckman so Aliir can go back to replace Dawson's recent role there, in which case Ronke would have to be the omission.

    But who knows, the MC completely fail to do what we suggest and we have poor results as a consequence, they need to listen!
    This.

    It’s a new injury - see report on Swans website.

    How about we just play a fit team. We've seen the MC hesitant to make changes other than forced changes through injury and/or suspension.

    My predictions are
    Outs: Dawson (suspended), Cunningham (injured)
    Ins: Stoddart, Fox

    If I was on the MC....

    Outs: Dawson, Cunningham, Ronke, Hayward, Jack
    Ins: Stoddart, Menzel, Clarke, Fox, Amartey

    Ronke and Hayward are way down on form and are a liability. I have always liked Kieren as a player but father time has caught up.

    I think we need a ruckman even though Sandliands could be out so Amartey gets the nod. He would be playing against a second ruckman and it would be good experience. Clarke to tag Fyfe as others have mentioned.

    Last weeks selections made me think 'Swans are tanking' - we'll see what the MC throw up tonight.

    I think they’ll bring someone else in to ruck, even if it’s Fox! Although I think Knoll more likely now.

    Wonder why they’d keep player Kizza. Ronke goes Horses pet stays.

    OUT: Dawson, Cunningham, Ronke, Jack
    IN: Stoddart, Fox, Clarke, Knoll

    It's a debut for ....McLean! Considering he hasn't rucked in the last 2 weeks I don't think he's going to be taking over first ruck duties from Aliir?

    In: Clarke, Fox, McLean, Stoddart
    Out: Cunningham (injured), Dawson (suspended), Jack (omitted), Ronke (omitted)

    Emg: Rose Ronke Jack Menzel

    Fyfe out !

    Must be our youngest side since we were South Melbourne!

    Wonder what they have in mind for McLean, maybe do the chop out ruck work so Reid can stay forward.

    The four ins have been the best in the NEAFL so that's what I like to see, reward those performing. Ronke and Jack gave us nothing last week/s so has to be upside from their replacements. Clarke to tag Walters?

    Giving myself 3.5 out of 4 as I had Knoll as the ruck inclusion. They must think Maclean’s the least worst.

    Still feel we are a chance against a Fyfe-less Freo
