    Think we can win this if we play a simple game and hold the ball.

    Only big issue is our pack size vs the dogs pack.

    Looks like Fitzgibbon will be suspended for 1 match.
    Stone will probably replace him, and Lillyman comes onto the bench.

    Fitzy deserves at least a week for that pass.

    I spoke to a bloke this morning with a pretty decent connection to the Bulldogs and the word is apart from the salary cap issues it seems the Morris boys are behind a lot of unrest within the team. Apparently think that 200 odd games should buy them leniency at training and aren't copping Dean Pay's methods. Very much used to being Des's boys.

    If Fitz is out and considering our lack of men up front might be good time to put Guerra to Fitz spot with Levi starting and Griff to 13, give us Lillyman and Esee starting with Heighinton, King, Stone and Yates on bench

    I find that hard to believe as they put in 110% on the field. In saying that I bet heino and a few older heads don't go 110% at training as they know how to "cheat" so to speak. Also if they are so disruptive why don't he just drop them altogether. Yeah they might not have anyone better but it's a lesson.

    Josh is injured isn't he? Well maybe it's time for them to ship off to esl for a couple years. All I'm seeing at the doggies is Klemmer trying to play for the whole team but Nobody is following. Josh Jackson trying hard but not much of anything else.

    13+ for us folks. May as well fold the club if we lose to the Dogs.

    This is one of those games we SHOULD win. Therefore we'll get flogged by 40

    Such confidence anyway I think we are a big show, just need to get it right, players and thinking about game, am happy with current 1-5, we should look at 6 & 7, if Lillyman is back then pack is improved (slightly) 8.Esee 9.Levi 10.Lillyman 11.Fitz/Barnett 12.Guerra 13.Griff .... 14.Barnett/Fitz/Yates 15 Heighinton 16 King 17 Cogger/Watson/Lamb

    Ross and Lillyman are both on track to be fit for the game.
    Brown will need to decide if he drops Denniss, Sio or Ross to reserve grade.

    Haven't seen anything that warrants dropping Denniss or for that matter Sio, he does kick of and can goal kick and scores tries so Ross in doubt for comeback IMO, Sio more strings to his bow than Ross at this time, if Lamb is in Sio is out with Ross in
