I’m expecting Walla to be the AFL Sub and not play VFL this week
D’Ambrosio to be the left over AFL emergency
Tom Phillips missing

Pretty strong VFL side I must say (by our standards)
I like that back 6. I imagine they will go really well at AFL level.

Phillips, Narkle, Rastinac and Bernacki through the middle with Lynch off half-back is some quality VFL players to contribute.
Unfortunately, with Wright, Stewart, Reid, Cox, and McBride all injured the talls are a bit lacking.

I would expect Lynch to start on field, MASS to be in the firsts, and A Phillips to also be playing. And where is Munkara?
See the AFL team.
Munny needs more conditioning
He might play but i think he got hurt last week

Essendon has this amazing ability to have too many talls and too few talls on the list at the same time
Lord Baldwin Montgomerie
Sounds like the name of a 19th century admiral.

We need a t-shirt
An Essendon tall story
The many, and the few
The listed, and the available
I hope Hobbs does well. wonder if gets a full game.
would probably still prefer Baldwin forward with Vossy to help kick a score. but yeh he probably needs to play defence until Cox or Reid or McBride or Stewart are back on deck
Yep, very strong lineup in my opinion.
Agree I think we will be very competitive.
I hope so. We need massive pressure from the listed players in the vfl to make the others earn their spots. The best way forward is a strong VFL team.
Excited. Hobbs named in the centre. Thats his destiny.
Hobbs is playing? Awesome.
Why isnt Stringer playing if as they are saying… its conditioning from here. He is good to go otherwise
He’s still listed as 1-2 weeks away on the EFC website. That was 5 days ago, so I’m going to assume that means he needs another full week of training before playing at any level. I’ll be worried if he’s not playing VFL footy next week.
