    I think Wicks would be one of the last out of the team unless the coaches thought he was fatigued and needed a spell
    Don’t get me wrong- I like Wicks. Of course he does some good things. My issue with him is that he doesn’t do enough, certainly compared to his earlier games this season. Hence maybe he needs a rest.

    Injury Update: Warner's successful return, Naismith's progress (sydneyswans.com.au)

    Warner has played his first return match (in the VFL) on Sunday past. He's now ready to play "a full game". I would suggest that he probably needs to have another match in the VFL (or scratch match) before being considered for senior selection.

    I tend to agree. Chads upside is phenomenal, he has so much to offer even if not 100% match fit.

    Yep I think Chad would benefit us in getting a few more centre clearances - has been good for a few each game he has played - especially his explosive runs out of the centre square.

    I'm happy to see him have a week more in reserves. Only because I'd hate to see him underdone and get bunged up again and be missing by rushing him back too quickly. Not doubting his value, but prefer we be a little cautious - we should be able to beat St Kilda with or without him to be honest.

    The other matchup I hope to see is Hewett on Steele. If we can limit both Steele and Hill, we take away a huge part of the Saints' offense.
    I like this idea. Give him an apprenticeship, accountability and a hard tag all game. I'd like to back in Stephens with a string of games.

    Earlier in the year I was very much against bringing Gulden back straight away - first year player, 6 weeks without footy, blah blah. The medical and conditioning staff made exactly the right call then, and I trust them to make the right call regarding Warner. They are clearly the best in the business.

    Re: Warner's match fitness, if he can contribute > 4 disposals and 1 tackle for the game it will be an upgrade

    The AFL site reports that Ryder has been ruled out for this weekend's game, and also that Jack Billings has injured a hamstring and so is also out. (Not sure that the latter is necessarily a positive for us.)
