Stewart might be an outside chance to play - Snelling & Langford probably come in the following week against the Saints. It would be nice to get a win and some momentum to kick off the second half of the season
There’s a chance (if we got through the Carlton game unscathed) that in 2-3 weeks time we will only have two players on the injury list.
Cox and Hurley.
I don’t know if I should be happy about that because we get to field close to our best possible team, or disappointed cos when we inevitably still lose that we don’t even have the injury excuse anymore
I get what you’re saying and I’m happy to get a top 3 pick in a season that is a write off in terms of finals.
We might experiment a little with personnel and a few positional things that they wouldn’t have done if we were in contention but beyond that the 22 who run out each week aren’t going to not try (well, you know).
I’d just love a bit of a buffer to form by way of Adelaide and the Giants winning some games over the next few weeks to allow us the odd guilt free win.
It was difficult to get a definitive read on Snelling and Langford from the injury reports but certain things about how they phrased it makes it feel like they are probably unlikely to be right for the Carlton game but more probable in the week or two thereafter.
