    Shocking overturn. Joke of a decision by whoever sat on the tribunal.

    COR was great, controlled his opponents, provided overlap and options offensively, tackled well and supported both KPD against Cameron and Hawkins in marking contests and when breaking up leading lanes.

    His kicking was also excellent; the pass to McInerney was first class.

    McLean may be a hardworking, but so far he's also a losing ruck. I suspect Jackson will have a day out when the pair are relieving Gawn and Hickey

    The Tom Papley Backpack $39.99 from the RWO merchandise tab - if only!

    Hewett replaces Rowbottom in midfield, RB to a flank. Buddy replaces Sinclair. Rampe replaces Melican. Fox as medical sub.

    Silly talk of not playing Heeney. Hes a big boy he has played under duress before and will do it again

    So, who goes out for Hewett? Or is the flank somewhere in Afghanistan?

    Wicks or Gulden

    Can you outline for the forum how Rowbottom impressed against Geelong for you to support his retention in the team? How can you see Rowbottom working on a flank in tandem with Stephens and J-Mac?
    Is this what we would call counter-trolling?

    Wouldn't you love to see Naismith and Hickey play this week? Only 2 weeks away and has been training with the team...

    Buddy vs Sinclair or McClean Sinclair out.
    Hewitt vs COR or Fox or Stevens Hewitt in and coin toss for COR vs Stevens. Fox one more week in the seconds to build to full game.
    Wicks vs Guilden Mute point as both to stay in the side
    Ramps replaces Melican
    Heeney is playing through injury. Still commands the 2nd best backman - plays. (Due for a blinder)
