    Amen to that. I thought Lippa had a very good game.

    A few posters said Young looked lost last week? Maybe there is something in that?

    It’s hard to be critical of a coach that has us 5-0 and playing a very good brand of forty, but that isn’t going to stop me!

    Really thought we would give Young a good crack at it so really disappointed that he’s out after just one average (not poor) performance.

    It is perplexing.

    Cordy was pretty very bad in the VFL last week. We could have used Young’s height too. Don’t get or like it.

    After 1 game? Why not give him an opportunity to improve on it rather than banishing once again.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    The inclusions of Martin, Jong and Cordy has to be based on physicality surely. They want harder, stronger, tackling bodies. It’s great to see Jong in, as I think he brings something. Young obviously unlucky, but the MC might see something that Cordy might suit a match up more than Young. We shall know tomorrow.

    Surely we had to back Young in for a bit, disappointing.

    He was very ordinary last week I thought, and he's been poor tonight's far for Foots Ray.

    Not sure if it validates or makes decision worse but Young struggling in the VFL.

    I am with you - we lose this game and its another lost at the selection table.

    Cannot fathom the need to make 5 changes. Cannot see how Lippa/Young deserved to be dropped.

    The team reeks of hard nuts - Zaine, Jong, coming in, but equally footskills are debateable. Jong/Zaine/Wood alone have less than effectiv e kicks. As for Rourke Smith - he shouldn't be anywhere near getting a game

    Backers of Young will say it's hurt his confidence and those who support the decision will feel further validated. I definitely wouldn't want this version of Young in tomorrow night.
