A few changes this week I think.Langdon is an out already.His knee has not stood up.Maybe brought him back too early.
I see Sutcliffe and Griffen going out as well.
With Griffen going out, then maybe Darcy will get a slot.But Brissie have Martin as their number one ruckman.He is no slouch.So not sure about DArcy, but we have no other.
Could Sheridan get another crack, or will they bring in one of the newer recruits for a game.Maybe Cox.Sam Collins must be due a game.
An interesting time at the selection table.

2x25=Seinor&Michael.

29 = 353.

Improver one,Taylin Duman.

Improver two, Brett Bewley.
Smokey, Tobe Watson.

If Sutcliffe goes out and Sheridan comes in, I give up.

That is highly likely Goby.
And as the cup goes up hear the shouting
Freooo, Freo.

Anchor, I reckon you're in for some disappointment. I reckon Griffin will stay in and big Sean will have to wait a lot longer. Sean Darcy really isn't ready yet. His fitness isn't there.
It pains me watching Jon Griffin as he is definitely not AFL quality.

Sherro will come in and probably free up Weller for a midfield or forward role.
Taberner could be a casualty; I bloody hope so.
And as the cup goes up hear the shouting
Freooo, Freo.

All will be revealed in 2 hrs time, who's in or out.
Another wet day predicted on Saturday, which doesn't make for an enjoyable watch.
Just hoping against hope it will be a better result this week.
Although last week was great weather and didn't get us anywhere.
Guess it doesn't matter what the conditions are.
We would all love a win.

Macca, I agree in regards to Darcy.I have said here before, I didn't think he was ready.But Griff disappointed me a bit last week and I just thought Darcy might get a chance.
Darcy is a long term prospect he will take time to mature and get AFL hardened.Maybe he will have that puppy fat for a while, a bit like Mal Brown.Brownie played with puppy fat all his career, but was as tough as they come.

Welcome to the Imperial Purple Brennan Cox.Wishing you all the best for a great future at a great club.
Good changes this week I think.Tabs had to go back,Hughes may be getting tired and needing of a spell.

Great to see Sam Collin back in the good books as well.

SHeridan! Why...

They are very interesting INs and OUTs. 

There's quite a bit to follow in that team with the young guys in. Should be an exciting game to watch a debut and the development of others.

Great to see Cox get a start and Collins for the first time this year.
I just want to see a lot less turnovers and some decent ball movement.

I'd say Sheridan, and Sutty are in because there must be some limit to the amount of inexperience included in a team from week to week if you're seriously trying to win the game. They mightn't set the world on fire but at least they know the drill.

Surely there has to be a bit of stability/predictability when you are adding so many new players to the mix. We've included 2 newbies with Ryan & Cox (go, boys!), 2 who haven't been part of the team for most or all of season thus far in Collins and Griff, and 2016 Freo newcomers McCarthy, Kersten & Hamling. All of them are still learning about their own capacities on the AFL stage, let alone how to unite as a team.

Even players who are not top echelon have the capacity to add a bit of weight through experience...that's my hope anyway. Give it all you've got,  boys - go Freo!!!
