    If Carlton go with McKay, Casboult, McGovern & Curnow up forward how would you match them up?
    One of the things I liked about having Hunter and Macrae play the wings - was that their incredible work rate meant that we always had that hit up kick around the ground, so we could avoid going long down the line a lot of the time. Since Macrae became inside mid, he has lost that aspect from his game a bit. Hunter is still everywhere, but given the choice, Macrae is more creative and can open up the play with his ability to take the '45' (degree) kick.

    Allows McLean to take midfield rotations (where he played his best football) and Dunkley stays in the midfield too.
    I like this idea.

    If Crozier, Duryea are available, Gowers injured and the need for more talls, there could be a few changes this week.

    Lewis Young needs to come in, as does Crozier.

    How far is Jong off? He's versatile and can run with or play a defensive forward role.
    One of the great moments in life is the sense of space and time you feel between taking a hanger and touching back down.

    He has played the last two VFL games, but hasn't set the world on fire.

    I think Williams will struggle to hold his spot largely based on the likely match-ups
    Playing Duryea would be a bit of a risk without a game at Footscray

    Why do I feel like this statement is a perfect summary of about 95% of Jongy's career?

    I almost forgot he was still on the list.

    He is the sort of player that I think we just hold onto forever because I am scared of what will happen if Collingwood get him for pick 75.

    With all due respect to Jong, if he's the difference between us winning or losing we're in trouble.

    Anytime we find that difference problem solved.

    I was just asking where he was at fitness / injury wise. I think his versatility may help out in the roles I stated previously. He's by no means the difference.

    Good lord, sensible changes, what's come over the match committee?

    Remain curious as to how we'll combat their ability to load up on talls up forward.

    Let me guess, win the midfield battle?

    Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 13, Vs Carlton

    Tipped against us this week. The team is a lot better balanced than the last time we played them but I've seen nothing lately to fill me with any confidence at all. The selections aren't really that exciting either and again doesn't give me any confidence. Hope I'm wrong and I might be but I expect to see the usual vanilla boring Bulldogs Saturday night.
