I don't understand the talk about D Pearce not playing, since he's already had a rest. Certainly, I don't remember him playing in Rounds 20 and 21.

Zac would be likely to punch the coin away with a big left fist during the toss

Imagine the QF selection dilemma if our forward line happens to fire this weekend and kick 20 goals.

Don't think it would be a dilemma. I think the "back ins" for the QF would be firing on all 8 though in that game however.

I`d like to see Ballas get a run, even if he is borderline.

PA's quick handball and run (carry) with accurate kicking to leads will be a tough scenario for guys who are used to playing at a slower paced WAFL. PA are an in form side.
However this is an opportunity to see how the likes of Weller, Langdon, Blakley, Grey and Ballard cope, particularly in hostile territory. Hope Tabs and Clarke step up. Crozier is playing for his future.
All we want is for this team to be competitive with100% effort, the result is immaterial. Many of these guys could be auditioning perhaps for a finals berth. They should keep that in mind.

Tags on Robbie Gray, Boak and Wingard is stating the bleeding obvious. Perhaps we'll find a couple of Crowleys? Hope so.

Admire the optimism from some about how the young fellas might go, but we only need to look at what happened the last two times we played the B-team to predict how this will turn out.

I'll be shocked if we get within 10 goals of Port.

I won't - we can beat them (and we have the players to do it if positioned correctly). Unfortunate that Leroy can't play, but Connor is going to be great; tough that Ballard and Vandeleur can't play (as well) - they may have surprised everyone.

Either way, we're going to win this one if we get in front early.

Ballard and vandeleur can play cos apeness and deluca are on the long term injury list. The toughest call is on MJ, he could use the run but he is such an important player to us that the risk might be to great.

We can update two rookies this weekend is that correct? Would like to see Ethan Hughes get a run, as well as Ballard obviously.

The fact that Ballas and Son Son didn't play last week means they don't count when we count the 11 players we're allowed to leave out, that's right isn't it ?.

Correct. Fyfe and Pavlich not included in the 11 either, as they didn't play round 22. Freo have said up to 11 changes from the team that faced Melbourne. 6 confirmed today, RL said other changes could take all week to work our. Watch his PC from this morning. Always entertaining.

that's a little harsh on Pav there Purple Eddy - 20 possessions and 3.0 goals is not a bad effort!!
