The same team as for the Dogs game has been selected again. Brett Stewart has been picked at fullback and is expected to have recovered from his injury. Nothing has been said about injuries to Rose and Hicks. Matai was seen limping off and so some question marks about his fitness also exist.

i was surprised last week he went for rose over cutho but i think he as we all did expected the dogs forwards to put up more of a fight and went with the size of rose rather than the skill of cutho

the old saying if it aint broke dont fix went out years ago.
If it aint broke how can we improve it.
Cant argue with picking a winnig team , but i woul;d like to see Ballin have a run.
Would be easier to blood the player in a winnign side instead of introducing him to first grade after a couple of losses in whinch he would feel the pressure to perform.

no barks - cuthbo should be there, not only did he play well but he needs the experience with Bk leaving at the end of the year.

I reckon des is just easing him into the role.... i think towards the end of the year he will be in the team every week... so he's ready to be in the starting pack next year
