Pretty sure we were missing a couple key cogs last year - and it was at Marvel.
Adams with covid and Jordy was suspended. We’re a much better team (that was 4 games into Fly’s tenure) and they’re arguably much worse.

Should win well.


12 of the team we fielded that game will be playing this weekend.
Some of the names out from that horrible loss; Grundy, C.Brown, T.Wilson, Howe, Lippa, Magden, Henry, McIness, Elliot & Bianco


In a rare 2022 Fly brain-fart - he selected Wilson ahead of a then in form Ash Johnson, who was pushing for a debut.
I'd argue if Ash Johnson had played instead, we would have won.
Johnson proceeds to pull a hamstring in the VFL and misses a decent chunk of games.

Anyhoo, onto this game ahead... Barrass will likely take either Mihocek or Cox; so i'd suggest a sacrificial decoy forward strategy to draw him further upfield away from his intercept marking.
With serial arse pain McGovern missing, we must capitalise on his absence.
Outscore them by three goals per quarter if we a fair dinkum to get our percentage up around 140%, and thus a buffer from next best team.

If I see another half arsed final quarter like last week's shitfesta against the pauperoos, I assure you all I'll have no problem naming names and swinging the axe ahead of the Melbourne clash.

Emergencies are Bianco, Allan, Macrae and Markov. I assume Markov will be the sub as he hasn't done much wrong, but all of the other three seem like decent outside chances if McRae wants to reward someone who's been performing at VFL level instead.

Unusual looking team with Frampton, Cox and Cameron all playing.

That's our Premiership big man line-up I reckon. With Johnson doing well, there's no spot left for McStay.

I think that's what Fly is aiming at. Some quality tall timbers on all lines with pacy, smart ball users at their feet.

Looking forward to Darcy Cameron having a good day out, 3 games in on his return from injury.

Line on Sportsbet is a all time record of 63 and a half start. 63.5


Not that I necessarily approve of betting talk on here, but I did notice that West Coast are $10 to win on the same site. That surprises me – it's far from the highest I've seen even this season, and the same as North last week. I recall one game years back when Gold Coast were something like $16 and won.

Think the club have already declared Markov as sub. I noticed they emailed the team to members before the 6:25 deadline which has always been designed to give channel 7 sports news the break.

Hard to believe we've only beaten these clowns 4 times out of the 20 games here in WA and they are the only side we have a negative record (27 - 31 & a draw) against.

Heaps of seats have become available to the general public today, hoping we outnumber their pea brain fans.

Can't imagine Allan is anything more than part family visit, part squad experience. Being 1st year, young I'm sure there's a bit of nuture in this. Good experience for him regardless.

Allan, Cameron, Frampton, Hill, Johnson, Mitchell and Ruscoe are the sandgropers on the list.

You know what they say about hindsight (is 20/20 vision)...

Question without notice, is this young lad Harvey Harrison, any relation to Harry Hooker Harrison, who decades ago, gave Ron Barassi absolute hell, in the huge upset in the 1958 Grand Final ?

Allen is getting a trip home to see his family. Well played by the Club.
