Cheers… our first team changes podcast up for members now.


I’ve joined as a VFL level member, thanks for keeping it up fellas and giving us Bomber tragics something to listen to. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m listening to the selection podcast now.

Grant might like this:

It has been mentioned by a couple on Blitz that the way to play Francis and not drop anyone in the backline and straighten up our forward line could be to play Hooker at full forward and Hurley, Ambrose and Francis as the three key backs.

Before this could happen though, it would be fair to dangle this as a carrot for Francis to find top form in the VFL as a tall back.

I would be aiming to have them both as swingmen though, so they could be swapped if necessary.

I know our backline is in great form and fiddling with it is controversial, but Francis needs to be blooded and starting his AFL apprenticeship is best done before Hooker and Hurley hang up their boots.

Ultimately with Joe not on the park we need another tall forward and Stewart isn’t on the park yet, let alone in form. I like Brown, but I like a stronger KPF more.


Must say thats a very sensible way of looking at things. Always enjoy how you think and communicate mate


Enjoyed your first changes show


Thanks chef. We want to do a few smaller quick shows. Maybe even an immediate type reaction after a game scenerio too


Love the idea of a post match round up when all the emotions a raw


Its only really the resting ruckmen monsters that would challenge us for height.

But a forwardline of Hooker, McKernan and Stringer could work.
and the backline is very settled now so adding Francis won’t create too much disharmony.


Once I’m home from the game I’ll sign up. Listen to you blokes week in week out and love your work
In particular , I’ve appreciated the insight around Aaron Francis . Keep up the superb work :slightly_smiling_face:
