      Wellingham the obvious inclusion for wce, interested who we run with Kelly and shiel? Is it beyond duggan or sheed to play a negating role with Hutching taking the other.

        curious to see if wellingham can make an impact, supposedly been re-tuned to playing as a forward-mid. maybe a good inclusion, partington had a good run, wellers has fresh legs and has finals experience, pace, grunt, aerial ability and a raking kick..depends which wellers turns up? have eagles gone in too tall, simpson’s made this mistake before. sheed was quiet last week, he and duggan need to step it up, as does lecras..

          Sheed was quiet but still racked up 19 possessions. Duggan was missing with only 10 possessions and he needs to step up tomorrow night.

          Feel for Partington. Has done everything right and loses his spot to a guy that was recalled to the side against Carlton and put in a woeful performance with 11 possessions.

          We need to cut down on the handballs and rebound from our defensive 50 by foot as quickly as possible to catch their backs out IMO. Their running backs can be curbed if you make them accountable by quick rebounding.

      Selwood in again for the cats is telling. He’s not fit to play and will prove a negative crucial in finals football,just like he unfortunately did last week. The Cats really should have given him one more week and brought him in fitter this week. Selection in finals is so crucial

        Yeah he’s as tough as they come but he looked crocked last week. He’s needed though because even a wounded Selwood is better than the alternatives. Geelong already have about 6-8 kids and other players out there who aren’t going to be competitive at this level of football. They were too small and too slow against the Tigers, and I don’t imagine Sydney will be any easier.

        They’re well placed for a few years’ time, but right now I can’t see how their depth doesn’t get exposed tonight by the most professional outfit in the comp.
