Hopefully a rare positive today is we got through unscathed.

Fire away with your changes?

Don't think we have enough on the list that are fit enough to cover the changes I'd make  ;D

OUTS:
Lynch - unacceptable effort up forward non leads and dropped marks aren’t what your recruited for.
Castagna - why why why is he still playing seniors  :facepalm

INS:
Some youngsters I suppose.
The club that keeps giving.

Pretty simple, need to win all 4. So play your best team and try and get them.

3 might be enough the way results are going , as long as we beat freo and GWS

But agree , pick to win .. season isn’t over until it is

Broad is flying with the squad to Perth thinks he can play but Dimma said he's a "slight" chance.

Prestia & Vlastuin are at least another week away by the sound of it.

Wracked by injuries, the Tigers will have Dion Prestia back for next week’s clash with Fremantle and hope to have Nathan Broad and Nick Vlastuin in to bolster a young and undermanned defence.

https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/tigers-not-running-up-the-flag-cats-chasing-one-20210725-p58csl.html

Richmond, which is set to fly to Western Australia on Sunday evening and spend the week in quarantine ahead of next weekend's clash, is hopeful midfielder Dion Prestia will return from a hamstring injury for the Fremantle match.

But there are question marks over whether defender Nathan Broad will feature following a syndesmosis injury, despite the triple-premiership player making the trip to Western Australia.

"Dion played half a scrimmage match today, so he'll be available," Hardwick said.

"Nathan will head over, but he hasn't trained at this stage. He's moving pretty well, but I'd say he's a slight chance to play. Once again, we'll make that assessment during the week but he's going to give himself every chance I would feel.

"He's been very diligent in his rehab, so he'll put his hand up. I've got no doubt."

I would be playing Cotchin off half back for the remainder of the year of not his career. Give the kids a cool head back there.
We should beat the Dockers with Fyfe & Walters out.

Bit of a dilemma coming up if Broad and Vlastuin do play. What is wrong with Ben Miller by the way, Garthwaite while a competitor is not the answer as a kpp.

Hmm Mansell, Stack, Rioli, Cotchin as some one suggested Short Broad and Vlastuin along with Grimes and Astbury and either Garthwaite/Miller
just doesnt go.

Me thinks a bit of shuffling and a few outs is on the cards.

Ins:  Vlastuin - Broad - Miller - CC-J - Prestia - RC-D
Out:  Short -  Castagna - Garthwaite - Aarts - Chol - Baker/Ross

Im looking for bigger bodies to a degree so probably Baker gets a rest. I think both him and Short have escaped plenty this season.

We really need some bigger bodies in the team just brushed aside too often and they walked thru tackles that set up plenty for them.
If Broad and Vlastuin are right then im Moving Rioli to a wing Keeping Mansell back and Playing Stack from the bench as the seventh defender or fwd or even thru midfield rotations.

Im playing Miller instead of Garthwaite just need the bigger body imoJust found out hes not fit.
Prestia is so badly needed we cannot afford to keep getting belted with contested ball and clearances.
Bringing in CC-J instead of Chol surely they have seen enough by now.
We desperately need another big body inside RC-D or Martyn please.
Chose to keep the bigger Ross over Baker as i think Baker has been pretty ordinary a lot this year.Want Ross played in an inside role as well.

B: Grimes - Astbury - Vlastuin
HB: Mansell - Garthwaite - Broad.

C: Lambert - RC-D - Rioli
R: Nankervis - Cotchin - Prestia

HF: Parker - Lynch - Edwards
F:  Bolton - Riewoldt - CC-J

Int: Graham - Stack - Pickett - Ross/Baker.
