    How do we beat the Plastics this week.

    No doubt, GWS will come out firing this week after the embarrassment of last Friday whereas we will be full of confidence and thinking we can beat anyone.

    Forget about rooting for other teams to do us a favour, we need to win both the next two games to play finals. Win the two, and we will play finals.

    GWS will be without Hooper and Finlayson, but may get back Cameron and Kelly.

    Hopefully Mumford is also rubbed out for his hit on Friday, as he will be trying to rough up Tim. He is a dirty bastard and is the old fashion rough and tumble and I will hurt my man type- just ask Libba.

    Do we go in unchanged or do we bring in a Libba (who goes out).

    This is a big test for us and it is do or die.

    Come on Dogs, lets do it.

    Re: How do we beat the Plastics this week.

    Cameron played on Friday night, although it would have been easy not to notice.

    They will almost certainly regain Kelly, Himmelberg and de Boer. Himmelberg is a dangerous key forward and de Boer has tagged and beaten some quality mids this year - someone (probably Bont) is going to be in for a tough afternoon.

    I would be happy for them to play the two big logs in Mumford and Simpson, I think that gives us an advantage as I don't rate either.

    It's a shame this isn't in Antarctic Canberra again where the precious plastics found it too cold to play footy. Unfortunately the forecast for Sydney on Sunday is an annoying lovely sunny 22.

    Libba back in for an unlucky Hayes if he is right, otherwise no change.

    Their midfield has taken a battering through either trade or injuries they're not the team they were when we beat them in the Prelim. We need to put time into Greene and rough up Whitfield. Do this and we're halfway there.

    Hayes or McLean will rotate on him at a guess.

    It's a big week for Tim English. Mumford is a monster at the contest but moves like he has wooden legs and real feet. English can break his possession record this game if he gets on his bike and runs.

    Surely GWS don't play two rucks this week.

    Who mans up Greene?

    I would throw Wood at him.

    I think Greene is the key. He is the instigator for most of their drive. I would love Libba back and get him to give it to Greene all day.

    Libba couldn’t play back on him but when he ventures out near the middle of the ground Libba goes to work. In the GWS forward line I wouldn’t mind seeing Richards hi to him and just run off him at every chance.

    Mummy on English is a big opportunity for us to gain an advantage as long as he gets that knee up to protect himself. Would we entertain the thought of Sweet plating and resting English before the September action starts

    The germ has been playing midfield.

    Lose and we won't have to worry about September, so no way. They get a week off before finals anyway.

    No way Libba can come straight in.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Taranto is another player we need to be mindful of. He does a lot of the heavy lifting and flies under the radar a bit. He and Greene are the players I'd put work into.

    I’m more to the idea of let them try and tag us, we are on a high at the moment, full of confidence, don’t drag it back, continue on from the Essendon game and run, run, run.
