    Always Right Match Committee Round 10 v Gold Coast at Mars on Saturday Morning

    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 Nine match against Collingwood for our Round Ten match against Gold Coast at Mars on Saturday Morning.

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

    Bevo hinted a few guys very sore, and I'd not be surprised if Gardner and or Naughton in particular might be in some doubt.

    Naughton's looked really proppy at times, but then gets up the next minute and flies at the ball like a madman. He said after the game it is something has been managing all year.

    English likely to miss again.

    A great opportunity for Sweet to come up against Witts next week.

    When English does return, is there a way to keep Sweet in the side or is he just too one dimensional?

    I think it would only work with English playing at least 60% time forward

    I honestly think you could make an argument that setting up like that would make us a better, more balanced side.

    I think it is time for Sweet to hang up his boots.

    Then he will be able to honestly say to his grandchildren that when he played for the Dogs they had an 80% win rate at a 170% margin.

    That generation will be more impressed than the current one is.

    How would you fit both he and English in the side Danjul?

    I thought he was pretty good last night too has a bit of a presence outside his game play.

    I think we need to persist with English in the ruck so the question is can Sweet play the forward / ruck role?

    Sweet brings much needed aggression around the ball and will stick up for his teammates.

    Sweet can’t play the forward/ruck role - would be a complete waste there (no more effective than Cordy). He’s also not as good as a first ruck as Timmy.

    But he’s a decent first ruck and Timmy is a massive, massive upgrade on Cordy.

    We need to answer the following question:

    Is Sweet as #1 and Timmy as forward/ruck better for the team than English as #1 and Cordy as forward/ruck.

    I think the answer is pretty obvious.
