Pre-Match vs Gold Coast (MS) - Team Talk/Selections/Thoughts



It’s a small team with Stringer and Ambrose out, replaced by Dea and Parish.
Only 2 talls down back (and Hurley is only semi tall) and 2 forward, plus one ruckman.
I don’t mind the trend, but it would have been more appropriate against Collingwood, who had almost no talls other than Cox, rather than GC, who have 2 198cm+ forwards. I have NFI about the rest of the GC lineup and its marking power.
The problem could be we have an abundance of very short mids and flankers (Colyer, McGrath, Fanta, Zac, Tippa, Smith, Saad), so the help in marking contests is less likely from those around the contest.
