    Ottens is out for Geelong tho, Sydney could plump for Jesse White to help out in the ruck (he might be better for it, hasn't had a great year)

    Well, the Hawks have swung the axe, and violently too. Lewis and Osborne omitted along with Thomas Murphy and JKT, though the latter two are no surprise. Morton, Muston, Suckling and Peterson come in. They look like pretty good ins and outs, might be a good chance of stealing a game at Subi at this rate. They have played their better footy with Peterson in the side and all the Hawks fans say Suckling is a better kick than Hodge.

    Oh, and if I need to clarify my thoughts on ruckmen any further, I do think the Hawks are going to get absolutely **** on by Naitanui and Cox. As I've said, a bloke who can provide a contest just to stop the opposition midfield getting easy clearances is one thing, but Renouf up against Cox and NN is going to be disastrous.

    Will be interesting to see what happens when Hodge or Schoenmakers have to help out.

    Old spatula hands? Bit of an unfair nickname to bestow him with, but he did miss the most important grab of his career right in the goalsquare, so I say it sticks.

    Who's next in line? Newton or Jack Watts?

    Speaking of mancrushes and Petrie though... Petrie Nothing quite like watching him have a field day like against the Saints last year (both times IIRC).

    I used to play a bit of footy with Newton. Don't rate him too highly, but has the biggest leap. Used to sit on a blokes shoulders at least once a game. Hasn't changed either.

    Ofcourse they're grooming Watts to be that key forward, but he's definitely a long way off. Jeez impatient Melbourne supporters must be disappointed in him. We've been so spoiled by ready made draftees, then you get a bloke like Watts who's more of a long term project. Is it wise to spend your #1 pick on a project? Well only time will tell...

    We'll beat you clowns in the centre on the weekend. We just need to be able to get a target up forward and it'll be interesting. I reckon we match up well against Collingwood, especially with Brad Scott coaching.

    Fulling expecting you to quote this if we do end up getting smashed ftr.

    As I'm sure you'll quote my previous if you pull out a win. I think we'll see some clever coaching by Scott to minimize the beating in the centre, and Wellingham is actually a pretty big out for us given the form he's been in. That said, while I think Scott's going to be an excellent coach, based on how he went at Collingwood, I don't think he's got the cattle to stop us at the moment. If we play anywhere near the intensity we've had the last couple of weeks, we'll be hard to stop.

    Simply put, it's the type of game that Collingwood has to win, and hasn't done in previous years, to get themselves firmly entrenched in the Top 4.

    Losing games like this have cost themselves any real chance at going to the big one over the past two years.
