Is this a sign that we have effectively run out of players (no disrespect meant to the two, but it doesn’t appear to be a case of being selected based on form)

Have you seen them in the WAFL Walter? Western has been playing good footy all season, having only gone goalless in the last two games where Peel has lost against top 4 sides in the wet. Not really ideal conditions for a small forward to get the ball yet he still averages 17 touches and a goal a game. He's shone with the footy in hand and using his run to create space and scoring opportunities. I'm excited to see him get a go and I'm surprised it didn't come sooner.

Walker has come back from injury to play the last 4 league games for Peel at half back and done a very good job, blanketing his opponents and providing very good rebound. He has a lot of potential, very good for his size overhead, fast, a big leap and a great kick out of defence. I wanna give him a taste of the big leagues and start building his chemistry with the rest of the side.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

My mum has Alzheimer’s. Her memory for Freo Dockers stuff is much better than for most things, but she needs a bit of a prompt to help remember the Freo players these days.

Walker and Western. Both taken from NGA and in the 50s in the same draft. Both wear numbers in the 30s. Now both selected to debut the same week.

I hope they both have long and successful careers, but if they do I’m going to spend much of the next decade explaining to my Mum which is which (I expect I’ll go with ‘Western is the shorter one, and in the backline’).

Thanks for nothing Freo.

Now you've buggered it already for you poor Mum, Morgan as it's Walker who plays in the backline

Always good to see debutants. I am I big believer that you should change 2 to 4 players in your 22 every year irrespective of ladder position..
Have been sceptical of the NGA draft picks but Liam is proving me wrong, hopefully more wrong with these 2 boys. Go go freo

So - and sorry for this if he is injured - but where is Valente at??

Theres a bit of "Tom North" about him at the moment. Has he 'got the goods' and if so, what more does he have to do to get a game??.

Thanks for that info Biz. Dont get me wrong, I'm more than happy to see what these guys can do in the firsts. My comment was intended to focus on our current run of injuries, which have perhaps opened the door for players who would not otherwise have been ready for a game. If we hadn't had the most recent wave of injuries would we have brought in both players in the same game? Maybe it's also a reflection on our very slim chances of getting into the finals, i.e. let's make the most of the rest of the season by testing out our depth before the end of the season and the inevitable decisions that need to be made before 2022. Nothing against either player, hopefully they make the step up (and they will no doubt benefit from the experience). If nothing else it gives us another reason to watch the game.

It is a time-honoured tradition to announce the re-singing a player or naming a debutant in weeks where the fans start to get disgruntled.

That's shocking Morgan - time to check your autocorrect.
