With Fyfe almost a certainty to return next week,who goes out.
It seems that Darcy will make a reappearance next week as well.Who goes out
A doubt, even though maybe a small one, Hamling could be out.Who comes in.
As experienced players, I have been hoping for more from Colyer and Conca.We recruited them for their experience and pace.Would they be in danger of being sent to Peel?
Will it be a couple of the young lesser experienced ones sent back to Peel.
Watching the Peel game yesterday it was good to see Bewley and Valente being involved.They both did some good things.Improvement can only come with more game time.
Crowden got plenty of the ball, but he butchered it plenty of times.At one stage the commentators were saying his kicking % was 33.Needs to, like so many of ur squad, get better at that.
It concerns me a bit that the likes of Meek and Jones didn't have any influence at all in the game.Both are big men, but lumberers.It seems that if Darcy should go down again, we will still have to play Lobb as our first ruck.

Achors...How far away is Sandilands? Any idea, I'm really worried about the ruck. Lobb as a ruckman terrifies me.

Just looked on the FFC site,Sandi still tBA.I assume that is to be announced.So long time I am thinking.Kersten also TBA.Not worries about him though.
S Hill 6/6 weeks.
Logues 3 weeks.He will be very handy.
Blakely 2weeks.
Ballas,1/2
Fyfe Bewley tests.
Dixon a week.I am looking forward to seeing this fella get a run at it.
A fella called Bennell three weeks. Not sure who he is.
Sorry being sarcastic, but I can't help it.
I think that Darcy will come back in this week.He wasn't bad on Saturday.But Meek and Jones looked like lumberers.

Fyfe and Darcy to come in. Geez both SHill and Sandi are still a long way away so we’re going to continue to struggle in the ruck.

I suspect we’ll see another major reshuffle of the forward line. Switkowski had a good game, so he will more than likely stay in. Not so sure about Schultz who looks like he would benefit with a bit more time in the seconds.

See DeBoer is gearing up to tag Fyfe. The media will have a field day with that.

PH , watching Talking Footy last night they said the word out of Perth is that Fyfe will not play.Still has symptoms.
Maybe a chance for Bewley or North if he doesn't get up.Schultz at the monent looks a bit lost.Has some good moments, but not quite there.But these things we should expect.
He will improve.
A tough game coming up.

It is very strange anchor, but no one ever brings up Bennells name maybe they think if they don't talk about him people will forget all about him, or is it that they feel foolish saying he is injured again.


Someone has said Tom North is doing well at Peel.

As a footnote I can't help thinking how a lot of our ex players are playing so much better with a different coach .    De Boer  Mayne  Zac Clark    just to name a few.

MDB and Mayne yes, but I think Zac is still just a fill in.From what I have seen he has not been overly good.
I wish them all well when they leave, but in all honesty, they  were all done at Fremantle.
I don't think Maney had any thing left to give the club.His injuries held him back and I don't thin k Ross could see a place for him as well.
MDB like the others that went at the same time had reached their use by date at Freo.
I have my own thoughts on why Barlow was cut.
Even Neale and Weller, I wish them no harm.They saw a better proposition and took it.

Reading the AFL site, they say that Hamling may still be battling with his concussion.And Wilson maybe in trouble with a hammy.
All those out, makes a hard time at the selection table this week.

Fyfe passed to play.Good news.Hopefully he is fully over his concussion,though I doubt the club would let him play if he wasn't.
Bennell ,according to Lyon, should play this weekend.I would love to see us take the plunge and take him to Canberra.Let us find out just if he wants to play or not.

I fully agree anchor , why not take him to Canberra and know once and for all what he is capable of doing.    If he is fit enough to play for Peel then he can play for us.

They would only give him limited time on field anyway.

In regard to Bennell, he said he was suffering soreness in his calf yesterday,Tuesday. Was sent for  a scan and it all came back clear.That is twice now in the season where he has had scans and came back all clear.I think it is time the pressure was placed on him.Play or sit out the remainder of the season training but no play.
Surely we can't even think for one millionth of a second in extending his contract if we don't get something from him in the remainder of the season.

If Bennell can only play for limited time DF, I suspect he won’t be heading to Canberra. It puts more strain on the other players as they have to stay on longer because of it. Much as I’d like to see him in purple, I think its more than likely that he will have another stint at Peel, if he’s fit to play that is.

Good news that Fyfe is fit and ready to go, but we’ll have to get by with no Hamling. Alex Pearce must be exhausted having to do so much in the back line. He was magnificent last week after Hamling went down. So too, was Luke Ryan. They must be both feeling it though.

Not sure about Nathan Wilson’s injury, but he could be out for a while if it is a hammy. He hasn’t shown his usual form so far this season. Maybe he’s hasn’t been as fit as last season. I don’t know but there have been quite a few clangers this year. Or maybe, it’s just the drop in skill that has affected the whole damn team. It didn’t look that way in Round 1, but these last three rounds have been shockers with respect to skill. Mark Duffield keeps plugging for Fremantle to get into more skills training (like WCE), and not leave it up to the individual player to do like Ross seems to think they should.

Where does that idiotic thinking come from anyway? What club shouldn’t be spending time on skills training?

It’s just nuts!!!
