Does that list mean Funa is ahead of Elliot in the pecking order?

Not surprised Schuster is nowhere to be seen...yet. Maybe later in the year. Maybe.

It appears Jack is 100% fit..or why name him.

Horse Head & Cecchin. Not a good feeling on this game now since these two have been named amongst the match officials especially with Horse Head.

I'm surprised Boyle missed out after his performances in the first 2 rounds. Its time for Paseka to stop just being big with potential! I probably would have Gosiewski slightly ahead of Waddell too but Waddell is very much a Des type player. Very strong 21 man squad
Paseka must've been killing it at training, to oust Boyle, after his form in first two rounds. Hopefully this translates to the field and we see Paseka fulfill his potential.

Boyle and Jetski could well get a run next week, would be no surprise to see more rotation on the bench than usual, especially with our current forward depth.
Would not surprise me to see a fair bit of rotation go on ( given that there’s no reserve grade happening ), will also keep our forwards fresher as the year goes on.

So we are all assuming 1-17 will take the field as listed.

Does Des always start them 1-17 as listed on tuesdays?

Dogs stubborn defense will be allowed the latitude by the pinko Checcin to smother our limited attack. I suspect a low scoring scrappy affair. Dogs x 2.

Team for the dogs game! Footy is back,
At this stage, this is our best possible thirteen - except for our star hooker who will miss the entire season. Wonder how much the backline will change/evolve over the season due to injury/form/rotation.

I think given the lack of reserve grade that we’ll see lots of rotation , LOTS.
