    Always Right Match Committee - Round 14 Vs Geelong 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 12 match against Fremantle (and the bye) for our Round 14, 2021 match against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium in Geelong on Friday 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.

    It's a long way out but what changes might you consider?

    McLean, Richards, Wood, Garcia & Jamarra over concussion are strong possibles. Sweet if Martin is out.

    If all are fit enough, we get a lot better quickly for the cats.

    If Wood plays, Crozier out.
    If Richards plays, Scott out.
    B. Smith needs a breather. McLean or Garcia.
    Jamarra. Family all down that way. Big stage. Friday night. Do we need three tall defenders with Wood back? One makes way.
    Sweet for Martin if necessary.
    Scott or Crozier the Medical Sub. West relegated.
    Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?

    Any word on whether there will be VFL games this weekend?

    We desperately need Footscray to play if Richards and McLean are any chance to be selected. I doubt Mclean would be in the frame regardless after so long out, Richards could be if he could prove his readiness at VFL level.

    I don't think it's the right game for JUH, I would perhaps be looking at the North game, barring injuries requiring him sooner.

    Bailey Smith will get a rest this week along with everyone else, he stays despite some indifferent form.

    Scotty will be furious.

    My bad, I was being polite. His form is poor and he should be dropped.

    Needs a reset, recalibration, reminder of what is required.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Yep. If we can get him playing to his potential come September that’ll be huge. But I’m not convinced without dropping him that will happen.

    Martin looked very down sitting on the bench, so Sweet in, or against the more mobile cats ruckman, we might see Young played as the 2nd ruck with English.

    B.smith needs to watch some tapes of Treloar.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    Bailey Smith - medical sub.
    Ego check, he'll come back hungry. Bevo did it to Macrae early in his coaching career.

    Didn’t McCartney do it to Macrae?

    McCartney gave him a public spray and Jacko came out and had 43 and kicked two as a 19 year old.

    I'm not thinking Smith will/ should get dropped. He's not playing to his potential but he's definitely contributing and is probably facing more attention from the opposition than he has in the past.

    To me he's playing better than anyone we could replace him with and now's not the time to be weakening our midfield.
