    Always Right Match Committee - Round 5 Vs North Melbourne 2020

    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 4 match against Sydney for our Round 5, 2020 match against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday night?

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

    Bump
    Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
    Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up ó if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.
    And what started here will indeed have changed the world ó for the better.

    Out - Lloyd, Naughton
    In - Dickson, Young

    Not sure we can go any younger (Weightman) and it seems Schache is out of favour for now. Young gives us better ruck coverage - just.

    In: Lewis Young and one of Dickson, Green or Weightman
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    This is how I see it happening. We've got a good break with the Saturday night game so hopefully nobody else needs to be rested or pulls up sore.

    All of Vandermeer, Butler and West did enough to stay. Even performance across the ground.

    Bruce's second half was significantly better. He definitely stays now that Naughton is out, and as long as he keeps crashing packs and applying pressure I would be happy for him to stay regardless.

    If we had it in us, I'd also drop Bruce, his actually boarderline useless and needs to seriously hit the gym to work off that weight and build his strength.

    Out Naughton LLoyd
    In Lewis Young Weightman

    Didn't Young kick a few at FF in a pre-season game ? Marks well and kicks well.
    Another thought is to put Sweet in to give Goldstein a hard time in ruck work and free up English.

    In light of giving Van Der Meer, Butler debuts and there being no VFL. Weightman waits...
    We are already super young right now

    Could be an improvement.

    I can’t see how Bruce can keep the spot. Rarely gets near the ball and seems to be a very poor kick. Last week could not make the distance from 35m and this week hit the post from 25. 4 bad games in a row.

    could also consider Trengove, Schache, Young. Schache kicked about 20 goals in the last part of last season, I can remember 4 bags of three.

    At least you know with Schache, if he only has 3 kicks at goal in a game, he's invariably ending up with 3 goals.

    Best set shot at the club (besides Wallis and Dicko but they max out at around 40m).
