I would bring in Butler for this game. He will be champing at the bit. His pace is needed and he should play IMHO.
Yep I would drop Conca and bring in Butler.
Conca adds very little that others in the side cannot cover.

If Conca plays, what is his roll?

Yesterday against Giants pies had space and did as they pleased.I seen a bit of pressure and tackling from giants in there forward 50 and pies were under pressure.Got to bring the heat from our forwsrd 50 and through the midfield pressure and tackling and hit them hard and cut there space.Have to make Howe accountable to.
There was atleast 10-15min when the giants actually brought some pressure in the second quarter and the Pies basically stopped dead in their tracks whilst the giants piled on four unanswered goals. The giants just couldn’t sustain that level of pressure for any longer than that.

I’m expecting a major embarrassment and a fizzer Preliminary Final after a massive build up this week. They won’t know what hit them.
We do what we do and the Colliwobbles will be sorry they made it this far.  :rollin
The club that keeps giving.

Big call on Butler, you may be right, and i was of the same opinion, but Conca scores highly in pressure acts SIB and somehow is a team barometer.
I think there will be no changes barring injury.

Yup he was third for tackles and second for pressure against hawks so can’t see conca being dropped. Higgins and kmac were the other 2 I thought might have lost their spot for finals if butler were to come back but they were both fantastic in the qualifying final. Butler would be an awesome inclusion but I just don’t know who would be dropped for him.

Could be tagging Sidebottom.He gives our midfielders a chop out to and also when they push forward can go in the guts.

Same thing that happens today - close to 70k miss out

Got 4, but went in a three pronged attack with my mates. I didn't get anywhere personally.
