Essendon has made four changes to its line-up ahead of its clash with Brisbane at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.

Two changes were forced after Shaun McKernan and Kobe Mutch suffered hamstring injuries in the Bombers’ impressive defeat of Melbourne last week.

Experienced talls Cale Hooker and Mitch Brown, tough on-baller David Myers and versatile utility Mason Redman have been added to the side.

Young Bombers Aaron Francis and Matt Guelfi have been omitted from the team.

B – Jordan Ridley, Patrick Ambrose, Conor McKenna
HB – Andrew McGrath, Michael Hurley, Adam Saad
C – David Zaharakis, Zach Merrett, Mason Redman
HF – Darcy Parish, Zac Clarke, Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti
F – Devon Smith, Mitch Brown, Mark Baguley
R – Tom Bellchambers, Orazio Fantasia, Dylan Shiel
Interchange – Cale Hooker, Dyson Heppell, David Myers, Jake Stringer
Emergencies – Kyle Langford, Aaron Francis, Matt Guelfi, Sam Draper

IN – Hooker, Myers, Redman, Brown
OUT – McKernan, Mutch, Francis, Guelfi

I was confident of us winning but not any more. The lions have speed and we bring in 4 slow players what the ■■■■

Someone is sooooooo getting fined for leaking that, and it will be us.

This thread is waaaaaay old. Wrong one.

Redman isn’t slow, and Brown outruns most, but I agree with the sentiment.

Great to see Redman back, but Francis dropped? Wtf?


There was more chance of me winning Div 1 Powerball than Myers not coming straight back in

Absolutely fuming was planning t take the family to this game but cbf with us being out run by the lions so angry disgraceful and guelfi out too woosha has t ogo

Worst fkn selection week in wooshas miserable Essendon career. Christ.

He was playing injured last week by the end of the game and was clearly struggling. He is being rested for a reason.


If Francis is injured why don’t they just say so?

So is this thread???

Perhaps the are resting Francis and Guelfi as they have had 2 6-day breaks?

But Myere??? ■■■■ me. It simply doesn’t work having Zaharakis, Myers and Heppell in the same 22. They are all too similar and Myers is the weak link


Can’t wait to freeze my ■■■■ off in an empty MCC watching these plodders get torn to shreds by Lions.

I just don’t get !!!
Why drop Francis ???

I have serious concerns about a forward line featuring Clarke and brown.

Draper dreadfully unlucky imo.

Actually think guelfi a bit duded too
