They should but it won't make any difference

HQ has made it very clear in 2024 you leave the ground and make contact especially high contact you are goneskis

Not saying it is right just saying the that's the landscape now

When it's all said and done it's all Meehan's fault  ;D :sarcasm

What about the high contact to  Bakers head when he was on the ground after that, 2 swans players hit him in the head, nothing to see there???

Out: Baker, Lynch, Balta

In: Dusty, Kosi, Naismith

Where is Bauer? This would be the perfect opportunity to stake a claim in the side with both our forwards and defenders dropping like flies.

Seriously, give it a rest.

Clearly you and a couple of other posters have some sort of vested interest in slandering the fitness bloke without any evidence other than pointing at an injury and blaming him for it. This stuff is forensically reviewed by the club every year and if there was even the slightest whiff that the Head of S & C was directly responsible for injuries to key personnel, do you reckon Brendan Gale would just say "oh doesn't matter, play on"? Yeah, right.

Would bring in Ryan before Naismith - Naismith's a better ruck at this stage but we're replacing forwards not rucks and Ryan's a better forward..... :shh

Actually there was nothing to see from a reportable act side of things. Two incidents are not even remotely similar. You highlighted it yourself "on the ground" versus leaving the ground

I don't agree with him being cited but as I said it is clear that in 2024 if you leave the ground, brace for contact and get the opposition high or in the head you are going to get cited and suspended

Subject to injuries

INS: Martin, McAuliffe

OUTS: Pickett, Banks

If Lynch is out reckon they will bring in Kosi

Ok after the injury news

INS: Martin, McAuliffe, Koschitzke, Ryan

OUTS: Lynch, Balta, Banks, Pickett

I'd bring in Bauer over Ryan if he was match fit

We are having a shocking run with injuries. Losing both key forwards in one match is incredibly unlucky and puts enormous pressure on the side to find someone who is capable of kicking multiple goals. Maybe it is worth going in with a small forward line with Dustin playing as a forward the entire game and have either Ryan or Naismith giving Nank back up in the ruck.
