Can we beat port with this team? Might have a cheeky bet on Sportsbet paying $6.50

That looks a strong enough team on paper, only change I would make is Connor Blakely for Danyle Pearce. D Pearce needs a rest and if Blakely is good to go with his ankle then he has earned his spot in that side.

Yes if Blakely is fit then he definitely gets a game. Forgot about Tanner Smith as well he might get a gig.

Its not as silly as it sounds, in the past when we have been in this situation the players replacing the resting chaps have been brought in from many different sides in the WAFL. Most of these guys have played a couple of seasons together now and train with the main side as well. They will be a much more cohesive side than Port will be expecting. I reckon you will see some emerging players considered for selection next year. I am now really looking forward to what was otherwise a dead rubber match.
If they do win I cant see Ross making wholesale changes, except maybe adding someone to the bench if they were to say gather forty touches and slot three goals, that would be too hard to ignore.

The only change I'd make is Micky B. He is in desperate need of a rest....
But don't know enough about the B's to know who to bring in.
Out of the 3 emergencies, Neale would be the only one I'd consider. The other 2 also could do with a rest.
What a great position to be in!!

There is no way Johnno, Barlow, Griffin and D. Pearce will be playing. Last year final series, Johnno was a big lost.

Johnno had 10 weeks out with a hamstring, he needs afl game time, he was pretty rusty in the derby and is just starting to regain form.

Griff hasnt played a full AFL season either, he could safely play. I would be giving Mayne a week off perhaps, push pearce forward and bring tanner smith into the backline.

Peel still need a ruckman, so not sure if all of griffen hannath and clarke will play. There is still moller back there 'I guess.

EDIT

Following article on AFL website. Connor will debut this week, seems to have shaken his ankle injury

What about some late drafting from Channel Eagle to play for Peel against the Chanel 9 Munchers at Joondalup? I'd pay to see Basil and Barra et al cop the West Joondalup Falcons tomatoes and spittle.

Instead of resting players all together, why not send a couple back to Peel.

Send Pav down there and let him kick 10 from the goal square.

If Ballas gets the tick from the medicos regarding his pectoral muscles, may be worth sending him over to play port for a hit-out before the finals?
