Early thoughts are;-
OUT: Massimo, Phillips
IN: Heppell, Jones
Kelly Zerk Redman
Heppell Ridley McGrath
Merrett Stringer Martin
Perkins Langford Shiel
Jones Weideman Tippa
Draper Setterfield Parish
Bench: Caldwell Hobbs Hind Durham
Won’t be surprised if Draper doesn’t come up.
Durham will get a week.
Draper nearly looked as cooked as Phillips tbh.
A proper break this week might be enough for him to get his zip back but if not we might need to have Bryan as the first ruck, Weed as the relief ruck and bring in one of Jones or Voss.
Vigorous tackle where one of the cats players head hit the turf.
We might aswell give Baldwin a go
And play 1 of Jones or Voss.
Davey for Perkins on subs bench .
Kelly Baldwin McGrath

Shiel (Jones/Voss) Davey

Baldwin - Dixon
BZT - Marshall
McGrath gets rozee
if we’re serious about building, like bdb is saying we are.
you dont drop mass. you give him 3-4 to figure it out.
Sling tackle, head hit the ground, 2nd quarter, I think it was.
A difficult opponent but two things should go in our favour.
- Our most recent form at Adelaide Oval in beating flag favourite Melbourne
- At our lowest ebb last year, we managed a very competitive game against Port at this venue. (Let’s not talk about the follow up game at Marvel)
7 day break to freshen up. Probably a lightish week on the track. Weather doesn’t look too bad over there either for the game. Cloudy but dry.
Out: Hind, Flip,
In: Bryan, Menzie
Tracking beautifully at the moment, but as we looked treacle slow and lacked skills today, I think it would be wise for us to bring in Dyson Heppell.
Out: Durham, Phillips
In: Heppell, Bryan
What I’d do -
Baldwin, Davey, Bryan
Phillips, Hind, Durham (suspension)
What I expect they’ll do -
Heppell, Menzie, Bryan
Flip, Mass, Duzz
I would actually be playing Baldwin forward alongside Weide and Lang. String to remain on the ball against Wines/JFH/Boak/Drew.
In: Heppell, Davey, Bryan.
Out: Durham (susp), Hind, Phillips.
Would be surprised if Bryan comes in given what Scott said in the presser.
