Bombers V GWS. Official Match Day Thread

Too soon? Getting pumped for this one. Can anyone give us a weather update? What are conditions at the ground like? Carlisle to start in defence, l hope. 

Essendon FC ‏@EssendonFC 32s

FINAL TEAMS: Jason Winderlich a late withdrawal replaced in the side by Cory Dell'Olio. David Myers to start the sub. #AFLGiantsDons




Out: Licha


Myers will start as sub



No changes for them, Coniglio to start in the green vest.

33 pt win.

There’s ya margin.

We’ll grab a lead early.

GWS will fight to make a game of it, but never pull the margin inside 4 goals.

Just a clinical performance coming up, without the unrealistic % increase that most are predicting.

Just win. Margin a secondary consideration.

Nervous about this one.  Clearly I haven't been seduced by last week's game!

Dell awesome!!


Always liked him exciting player.....I really hope he cements his spot in our team  and delivers tonight perfect opportunity.

FFS Licha can’t take a trick can he?

Perfect rotation of players coming back though injury utilising the sub nicely is Thompson.


Melksham to get a full game this week.

33 pt win.
There's ya margin.


Dell 5.4

Let’s hope dell can snag a few. I’m not a fan but he’s in the side so go dell.

109 points

Peeto in. Expecting 5 goals


33 pt win.
There's ya margin.


Dell 5.4


Tall? What is that in metric terms? 


Myers sub, we’re going to stink.

Us by 78 points. It will blow out to 100 at one stage, then we'll fall asleep. 


One of the mids will kick 5, Joe will get 4.7, and Dell with a lazy 3. 

Weather fine - clear night, about 18 Degrees

Just win. Margin a secondary consideration.


@EssendonFC: Introducing your defence for the night. Only an hour to go! #DonTheSash #AFLGiantsDons”

Carlisle back - going by that. Not vouching for it, but can’t work out why else he’d be in the meeting
