Animal cruelty.
Not sure whether it is the scorpion or Buddy.

Them video replay cameras would give the Cowboy eight weeks for an innocent head high bump.

Get into his head.
Have Jake tell him, his missus and Wayne Carey but the Duck turned her down.

Well, they only have 38 players on their senior list.
That gives them 2 extra salaries to share around.

It takes discipline to do because you have to cut the two players you just know you are going to cut at the end of the year, but do it a year earlier.
There are always 2 players on our list who have no hope of getting past next years cut but they get given one last chance to show what they can do.
But they never do show.

Someone could sneak up behind him and shout "Boo".
Might give him a fright, enough to put him off his game.

Oh no forget that, our player could be rubbed out for 10 weeks for racist abuse.

Put Webster on him - can't play if he's got no eyes, can he?

Not turning the ball over going forward will help stop Franklin.

Remembering the last game vs Swans, they are fanatical about defending the space 70 meters in front
of ball carrier, which you don't see on TV. They cut off options, force a one-on-one contest, then swoop in when the ball hits
the deck, breaking sideways through the corridor, before hitting up someone like Franklin leading out, or some
other boob who's hung back. Even easier on a small ground like the SCG.

Saints will need to play on at all times, so Sydney can't set up their defence, but still hit targets by hand and foot.
And no ridiculous kicks straight to a Swan from the goal-square kick-out. :twisted:

Membrey's reliable marking power will be missed on half-forward/forward line. Gilbert's height and marking power will be missed
across half back - not his kicking though. Jake looks like only option to play against Franklin, but Buddy is faster.

Will need 4 goals per quarter to have a sniff. One every 7 minutes. That can't be hard !

Switch Bruce and Carlisle and drop Webster 20m in front of Buddy. Carlisle and Marshall up forward with Roo leading up into outside run would be a tough match up. Midfield have to get to the ball first and run like crazy to the outside.
