    Woah. No Hewett. No key forward. No second ruck. No draft pick as an emergency. Can't say I'd have picked this. Small and quick. Could be fun.

    That's something of an odd team. They are going all in with the midget forward fleet.

    McInerney's selection is somewhat unexpected. He was one of our best against GWS (not stiff competition) but I'd have thought he would have played more minutes against North if he were in contention for a round 1 spot.

    And Hewett as an emergency? Does that just reflect the interruptions he's faced with his preparation, or something more about the balance between size and speed through the middle. I reckon size and ball winning is more lacking than pace.

    With Brand on the bench you would think McCartin is our key forward

    I think the shorter quarters will mean less need for specialist second rucks all round. Poor Sinclair.

    There could be some funny buggers going on with selection and late outs e.g. McInerney makes way for Sinkers.

    Is some of this to do with the shorter quarters and an expectation that the game will be even quicker than usual?

    Also, for those that missed out, how do they get to develop their game, impress coaches etc? Is the NEAFL about to be replaced with a lot of reserves games between the Swans and GWS?

    And here are The Crows

    Brown Talia Laird
    Milera McAsey Smith
    Seedsman MCrouch Walker
    Jones Frampton Lynch
    Murphy Fogarty Stengle
    O’Brien BCrouch Sloane

    Davis Kelly Gibbs Atkins
    Himmelberg Hamill Mackay Poholke


    Quite a tall forward line even if Nicks did try to hide Tex on the wing there.

    The last game that Ben Davis played he was so bad that I thought he would be delisted before the season ended. But I heard he had a great pre-season, and here he is in the best 22. I never thought that Ben Davis would be playing AFL and Abe would not. Go figure.

    Is that Ben Davis on the bench?

    Quarters will still go for 25 minutes. Ronke's selection puzzles me.

    Also very surprised most pundits have picked Adelaide over us.... doesn't bode well for the year to come
