Worpel is pretty handy for them.

I was expecting to need his “because fark you, that’s why” image for Clarke being dropped.

Begley must be hanging on by the slimest of threads.

Swap him for a match fit Mitch Brown and you have the strongest side Essendon can manage for the rest of the year.

I’m pretty happy with the changes. McGrath named in defence, to me that’s where he plays his best footy. That back six looks so solid. Bad luck for Francis but he has to usurp Ambrose to get a look-in and Paddy has been pretty reliable down there. Laverde to play a lead-up forward role, I like that. Stringer, Shiel, Raz in. No excuses to not win tomorrow night. Massive game!
