    Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 9, Vs Geelong

    Welcome to the Always Right Match Committee Thread. The Match Committee threads has been named after long time WOOF member Always Right who tragically passed away in March 2018.


    If you were on the Western Bulldogs match committee what changes would you make after our Round 8 match against Brisbane for our Round 9, 2019 match against Geelong at Kardinia Park?

    For those new to these threads, please give a brief explanation for your changes ... this would add a lot of value to the discussion.

    I think that Fletch should stay in if English isn't ready to come back, he was fine today and we need Trengove as our number 1 ruck when English isn't in the team. Obviously changes are pending on tomorrows game but I'd like to see Lewy Young come in as he was a bit stiff to be dropped earlier this year.

    In: English

    Out: Hayes

    Which means we stay with the extra tall.

    Tough game out there today and there will be some sore and tired bodies. Wouldn't be surprised if we swapped a couple of guys to allow them to freshen up.

    Tough match committee this week. Roberts did enough to stay in but English was stringing some pretty handy form together and clearly benefiting from the game time. Meanwhile Trengrove has put together two equally impressive performances at full back and in the ruck.

    I don't think you can play Trengrove and Roberts in the same backline against a fairly small Geelong attack. Do you try and double team Stanley with English and Trengrove playing ruck/forward? Stanley's been in outstanding form.

    Lemmon I like your thinking. Blicvas is also in great form who is a great match up for Naughton having Trengove down there may assist.
    They come after one,
    They come after all,
    They can't handle all,
    Lets go....

    After suggesting English was due for a rest before the BL game, I think it's the same for Bailey Smith... didn't seem to have the same zip yesterday playing on a heavy surface so I think a rest will do him well.

    I noticed that as well. It will be interesting to see if we manage him or just keep playing him.

    I would bring in Lipinski or Webb for Smith.
    If we want a bit taller maybe Young or Rourke Smith.
    Bring back the biff

    Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 9, Vs Geelong

    English/Lewis Young for Roberts
    Dale for Hayes
    Williams for Lachie Young
    Lipsinki for Smith (if sore)

    Really hope English is right (should be if just the gen soreness) as I would like to see JT freed up to play on Hawkins. The Cats go Hawkins + smalls which really doesn't suit Fletch at all as he will struggle with Hawkins' strength. If English isn't right, I'd go Young for Roberts with Lewis spending time in the ruck.

    Dale for Hayes, really adds a bit of class which we need. Lipsinki for Smith if he is sore rather than just an off game. Definitely looked sore to me as well.

    Liked what Lachie Young is doing but thought Bailey Williams had a strong game in the twos today and we can do with as many good kicks as we can get.

    Gowers is a worry at times, however we really have virtually no options of secondary forward who helps Naught compete in air. At least Billy kinda does it sometimes? Really would love to see the benchmark for that spot raised a bit. Schache just so meek in the air. Maybe Roarke? I know he is smaller but scrapping the barrel here. That said, Gowers had 3 inside 50 tackles vs Lions which is good going I guess.

    Williams with 31 disposals today. If he comes in where does he play?
