You have some big guns to come. Zorko struggling which hurts


#2168

And Kelly injured. Whoever gets the winner of our game this week has a fair headstart


#2169

Kelly probably concussed.
Tough luck for him.

Still can’t see it affecting the result at this stage.


#2170

Goldstein is up against the Dogs without a ruckman.
If he gets cheap possessions and marks around the ground, he could easily hit 130 like he did against them earlier this year.


#2171

Love when Rory Lobb plays solo ruck, his scoring goes way up.


#2172

Haha not quite, lost Fisher, Scharenberg and Gaff (to stupidity). Should be close all around.


#2173

Reckon I need five tons from my last five players or, (not wishing, just being realistic) an injury to the AllBlacks.

Not giving up, but it is still pretty grim.
I was hoping for a seventy point deficit after tonight.
I’m a long way from that.


#2174

I think it will come down to Switkowski on debut which is not ideal


#2175

Was in prime ■■■■-taking mode tonight. Have just started the midfield review for that game - his first “rest” from rucking was taking Tomlinson’s wing role.

I’m sure I’ve still got that 3rd rounder around here somewhere if you want to return him.


#2176

They’re playing 2 rucks: Trengove and Roughead, so he may be able to get cheap stats, but he won’t be able to get as many cheap HOs against the 2nd ruck like he usually does.


#2177

Fudge 1458 vs. Stoops 1251
wimmera 1411 vs. Allblack 1454

Fudge through to play Mad Bomber barring multiple Melbourne injuries in the 1st few minutes.

wim’s still in touch but needs someone to go big tomorrow or more Allblack players to receive hard tags like Zorko did.


#2178

Haha thanks I’ll pass, but I don’t think it’s all that bad for you, this is the first full proper game I’ve seen him play solo ruck all game since being traded over and I don’t think I can count on GWS to keep playing him there.


#2179

Going to take a lot to save this one


#2180

Goldstein is the key. He’s still a better ruckman than half the other teams in the league and he usually has a day out against non genuine rucks. He’ll outscore Trengove and Roughead combined.

Goldstein traditionally struggles against the monster rucks (Sandilands, Nic Nat, Gawn, etc.). He’ll probable get around 80 next week against Jacobs, but he’ll follow that up with 120 the week after against the Saints.


#2181

Could see him coming. Really is going to boil down to the new kid


#2182

We’re going head to head.
Lloyd v Brayshaw.
Curnow v Langdon
Walters vs Strzelecki…I think it is.


#2183

Goldstein could be the most astute pick up of the year if he helps get Wimm home here, he’s on 83 mid way through the third.


#2184

He’s actually slowed down this quarter.
He was on 75 at half time.


#2185

One of the issues you may have with Switkowski is game time - Harley Bennell’s been on the park more this season and Sam’s just come back from a LTI.


#2186

Still on 99 at 3/4.
