Changes for the Giants game?
« on: July 06, 2018, 11:11:26 PM »
We've got some forced changes with Graham (shoulder) & Broad (cheekbone). Butler also has a dodgy ankle.

Should get Vlastuin back from suspension and Houli is apparently ready to return.

Fire away with your chances .....?

Out Graham, Broad, Butler (no need to risk him)
In Vlastuin, Houli, Bolton.
Moore & Ellis keep their spots.  Did nothing wrong.

I see an article on AFL website saying deledio and Greene to be rushed back in straight after 10 weeks plus out.  I hope they do it.

Happy with... not sure Houli should come straight in as his touch normally isn't great first game back from weeks out.

Yep
Note the comment from Hardwick.
Ellis and Bolton to share Graham's on-ball role.

"Trent [Cotchin] put himself down back, which allowed Corey Ellis to go on ball. It was just a smart move when he probably needed a bit of a spell.

Richmond's depth will be tested when it travels to face Greater Western Sydney at Spotless Stadium on Saturday night.

The Tigers will be without Jack Graham (dislocated shoulder), Nathan Broad (depressed cheekbone fracture) and Dan Butler (ankle).

If Butler misses then that opens the door for Baker.

You'd think any of these bloke's coming would be looking to keep their spot so a few little injuries now is good.  Maybe Towner to tag Whitfield this week?

I would like to see both Townsend and McIntosh back. Maybe not both this week but soon.
Both not big possession getters but come finals time their grunt, work ethic and toughness will be invaluable.

So outs- Broad, Buttler and Graham

Ins- Vlastuin, Stengle and McIntosh
