    Always Right Match Committee Round 10 vs GWS Giants

    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 Richmond for our Round Ten match against the Giants at Engie Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

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

    Gags was pretty good, should have had a couple of goals. He won't get dropped with 19 disposals.

    Williams out for mine. Probably VDM injured.

    Apart from the obvious out I would be hesitant to change too much. They won by 16 goals.

    If VDM doesn't get up what are the choices?
    Sanders
    McNeil
    Scott
    Jones

    I would go Sanders but Jones might get the nod if he can do ok in the VFL and I'd say away from the other two.

    Williams was good tonight. Only player I can see being drooped is Bramble.

    I think we went in with 2 defenders more than ideal so perhaps Bramble is an omission chance.

    Some interesting challenges for our defenders
    Who takes Greene?
    Who matches on Hogan, Riccardi and Cadman?
    Then they have some some handy smaller forward.

    I'm particularly interested in who Cleary, JJ, Dale and Duryea match up on.

    Re: Always Right Match Committee Round 10 vs GWS Giants

    I thought Bramble played better than he has been playing in recent times but it was a bit of a mixed bag, and there's a lot of competition for spots at half back at the moment. Freijah and Cleary both went about as well as you could expect, and would be unlucky to miss. JJ played a role filling in for Laith (maybe he continues in that role? Unless Charlie Clarke plays a good game for Footscray).

    Gallagher is the only one for me that clearly needs a spell, probably a straight swap for Sanders, and Jamarra will be under pressure if Lobb performs well in the VFL.

    Gallagher had career high 19 disposals, 8 score involvements and had our 3rd highest pressure acts behind Ed and Bont. He was unlucky to have no converted better, with just the 3 behinds.

    He?s been quiet for a few weeks, but I thought tonight was a huge step in the right direction. I feel it?d be awful for his development to drop him now. Only thing that counts against him is the quiet 4th quarter, but the game was well and truly over by then
