I 'm calling it early , Freo will win against Port this week.

Hogan will come in, Lobb goes into the ruck to replace Darcy . Wilson replaces Young and Sturt replaces Matera

Freo wins massive upset.

Port Adelaide have got the travel and all the emotion of going away for a month. We should be thinking about our percentage.

We miss you in DuFFle Slammo.

Agree in principle with the 'ins' except for me Young stays and someone else drops out of the 22. Looked composed with the footy even when under pressure and in traffic. Give him a chance on one of Duursma, Rozee, Butters.

And the bastards have to isolate for 14 days, so yeah you'd hope it's percentage. But we'd need to fix some structural issues first.

Nothing good ever comes from winning a Showdown in a canter.

We beat Port last year by 21 points and also beat them in 2018. Why would be beating them this year be a massive upset?

Agree with all the ins you have there Slammo, however I’d be bringing Hill in for Colyer as well.
Hill, Hogan, Sturt and Wilson are some pretty good additions.

Need some more run off half back and through the midfield. Too many one paced players, Wilson a must to return.

Like him or loathe him, Colyer is quick and so is Port. We need the run.

Not usual to drop a youngster like Young after one game. He's actually a half back but could he replace Duman? Maybe wouldn't mind seeing him on a wing. That booming left foot is going to be weapon for us. Anyone see that left foot goal from outside 50 by Polec for NM on the weekend? That's what could be in store for us with Young, hopefully.

Mundy, Fyfe, Conca, Tucker, Bewley and Cerra all a bit one paced.

I've never really liked the idea of Conca in the backline, but I thought he was a steadying influence on the weekend.

I agree we are a bit one-paced, and I think Wilson or Hill's kicking can make a team look faster based on how well they kick the ball. Colyer is fast, but I'm not sure he's fast with a purpose.

Does anyone know what Wilson's endurance is like? If you could release him up the field a bit you'd love to see him ripping the ball into the forward line from time to time. Wilson kicking to B Hill on the move on the wing has been one of the highlights of the last couple of years. We don't have anyone capable of finding that space at the moment, and our current plan (which was Collingwood's plan) seems to be to kick to the boundary to a contest. Wilson might be wasted doing that. If he could be the next link in that chain and be kicking from the middle of the ground I think our forwards would have an easier time.
