#10 St Francis of the Rising Star


#6446

They make for an interesting comparison actually… One has got himself fit and is now poised to dominate his position. The other isn’t fit enough to move into the position he should be playing in.


#6447

Are you saying Francis is poised to dominate his position?

I reckon it’s guessing at this stage to suggest that Francis is fitter than Petracca


#6448

While Francis is much much much fitter than he was, he is still less fit than his opposition in my opinion.

Working hard with more work to do I reckon.


#6449

He’s a hell of a lot fitter than he was 18mths ago. Petracca most definitely is not. He’s a lazy head wobbler.


#6450

He better be out rested and not dropped.


#6451

He’s drested.


#6452

And Myers has been bincluded.


#6453

I’m no fan of Ambrose at all and would much prefer Francis be in, but on current form Ambrose has been better this year in my opinion. Francis certainly not playing as well as he did at the end of last year so far.


#6454

Reading the team selection article, Woosha did say that he gets a chance to “freshen up” for the North game, so I’d say it’s more being rested than being dropped. Probably won’t play VFL by the sound of that…


#6455

VFL have a bye this week don’t they?


#6456

VFL have the bye I thiink


#6457

There isn’t vfl this weekend, we have the bye. Sounds like rested… but why wouldn’t you say?


#6458

Has looked tired, getting his match fitness still young and hasn’t had a full string of games in ever, needs a rest


#6459

Yeah. Important to manage his workload whilst his body gets up to the rigours of senior footy week-in week-out…


#6460

Whoosha hates Francis


#6461

If he is sore or been rested why didn’t they put managed or rested?


#6462

Dropping one of our most talented players who gives everything is a really dumb move Essendon.

It’s players like Francis I pay money to go see!


#6463

We know he was sore/injured last week and clearly impeded.

Not sure anything more need be read into it.


#6464

I’m beginning to suspect that perhaps the VFL team has a bye this week.


#6465

There is a VFL Bye this week, but they don’t say which date it is on…
