Thread: Grand Final - Saturday 24 September, 2:30 PM at MCG

    I've changed my tune on Reid as it is looking and sounding a lot more likely that he's actually going to play which I thought was no chance!

    I agree with Ludwig that it appears he'll most likely just play Logan's current role as a forward with McLean coming in to play Reid's FWD/Back up ruck role.

    Let's be honest, it's a real risk as Horse and Co. will be crucified by the media and some supporters if he breaks down early and it costs us a flag! Although to be fair, if he gets through the game, even a 90% fit Reid the way he's been playing this year offers a lot more than what young Logan's been producing...

    Fingers crossed it all works out and he's a 2 time Premiership player by 5pm tomorrow!

    Shame you don’t come here more often you have nailed it 😀👍

    Hayden has an enormous tank and will run all day it is one of his attributes that I have always rated he won’t beat you to the contest but he he will be in the contest and his strength will mean you don’t win the contest.
    He covers a massive amount of ground which is overlooked by casual supporters. He can clunk them and kick them. He is accurate and extremely calm when lining up for a shot.
    This is in my opinion one of the the smartest selection changes undertaken for many a year.

As always there are decisions that go for and against and generally they even themselves out

    Wasn't paid because it would have been a certain goal, ump got nervous, but it was a free sure and certain

    Yes that was a shocker from the umps.

    Logan could be carrying an injury, we don't know. If not being medi-sub will still get him a medal and maybe game time.

    I think the medi-sub being available means you can take a risk with an injury in the grand final.

    If Reid gets up, the McLean won't need to ruck. But his good endurance running and reach advantage should help against Stewart.
    It will also mean we are playing two defensive tags. Something a coach as defensive as Horse would be perfectly comfortable with doing.

    We are good at spoiling Geelong's party. We beat them at Geelong when they were going for 30 straight wins. The Geelong Advertiser already had their posters out crowing about 30 straight.

    I recall during pre-season, one of Callum Sinclair's podcasts, he interviewed Melican and asked him who the stand-out pre-season performers were;?? He said something like "McLean has been a gun, he'll have a good year".

    Let us all hope so...
