    Always Right Match Committee - Round 10 Vs St Kilda 2021

    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 9 match against Port Adelaide for our Round 10, 2021 match against St Kilda at Marvel 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.

    In

    English
    Hunter

    Out

    Wood
    Scott



    I’d personally do Wallis for Hannan. But they appear to want to try to get fit, but one goal in the three games is sub par. Wallis should play but I don’t see it.

    Croz can stay medical sub.

    Lose one small for Hunter. Scott right now offers less than Roarke & McNail. English for Wood. We are still covered with Williams, Dale,
    Daniel, Duryea, Cordy & Keath with Roarke & JJ more than able to rotate back. Croz as the sub covers any injury down there. Wallis is a little more depth and versatility. But I don’t see it happening.

    Roarke Smith (does not deserve to be dropped mind you, just Hunter is obviously the preferred option. Give him the sub spot next week)

    I just don't want to lose against the Saints.
    For some stupid reason, 2 of my closest friends are Saint's nuffies... and I just reflexively vomit when we lose to them, knowing what is going to come back my way, from said mates.
    I think you're right selection wise, BUT Bevo went out of his way to point out how happy he was with Hannan's performance, noting specifically that fan's may not have picked up on the things he did that were important.
    Bevo's comment about Big Chilli not being full of beans this week, also has me worried. I don't think he's going to pick him now he's out and we've done ok with out him, UNLESS he knocks the door down.
    With Marshall out, unless Timmy is banging on the door, maybe he doesn't come in.

    Very difficult to drop anyone after tonight’s performance.

    I think you're reading the tea leaves well, but i'll be disappointed if Timmy misses again. Bruce has battled manfully as back up, but it does rob us of that second tall option which means defenders like Weitering and Aliir can intercept easier.

    We need the 3 headed monster back asap.

    Hypothetically say Hunter & English are fit. Is that no changes, or difficult changes?

    Same here. Seems all those around me are saints fans for some reason and losing to them often doesn’t ever sit well with me. I hope we hit the ground running from tonight and put them away early. Don’t want a repeat of our final last year. We’re a much better outfit than them and should show them that.

    It's an awesome outcome. Selection pressure after 9 rounds can only be a good problem to have.

    Re: Always Right Match Committee - Round 10 Vs St Kilda 2021

    I am expecting Caleb to miss due to MRO. The Port player clearly had his head hit the ground from a tackle in qtr 2. We never escape those even though the umpired missed this one.

    So we have 2 definite outs in Wood and Daniel and both from the backline.

    We also need more tall timber against St Kilda. That means Young or Gardner need to be brought in. Crozier gets the other backline spot, but I am not convince about Hayden as he flies too often and leaves us exposed at round level.

    Expect Hunter to come in and Lipinski is most under the pump.

    If English gets up it should be Hannan that makes way
    Life is to be Enjoyed not Endured

    Bevo went out of his way to praise Hannan in the post game press conference so would be very surprised to see him dropped.

    He either has really good intuition for how fans see/interpret a Bulldogs performance OR he's reading the forums during the game

    Which one of you is Bevo?

    I'm not sure if Hannan can play in the same forward line as Bruce, Naughton and English. I am sure that he has plenty of good qualities which he hasn't been able to show because he's not fit...so let's drop him back to the 2s and get fit!

    It’s only going to get harder. Sentiment for any player or a victory as grounds for selection decisions is going to be really hard post bye when hopefully without any more injuries we are opening up Martin, English, Hunter, Richards, VDM, Wood, Gardner, McLean plus Dunkley later on and hopefully Young, Schache, Jamarra and others forcing their up. If we stay fit, there’s going to be very unlucky players but a lot of Footscray victories.
