Buddy will play. As Dave correctly points out he can’t really mark the pill above his head anyway and you don’t need your elbow to run. Old Man McPharlin will need to be cherry ripe if he’s going to keep up with Bud. Just jab his elbow and he’ll be right to go. Expect him to play up the ground and drag McPharlin, Johnson or Zac the Hack with him.
Can’t see Spanger getting into the side unless a tall is dropped. I don’t see the the Hawks going with the same talls as Friday plus Spanger
Buddy, Roughie, Lake, Gibson, Stratton, Hale & Gunstan will all play unless they’re injured. And Bailey is a 99.99% chance to play as he’s actually got some size to compete with the monster Sandilands.
We’ll need a runner to replace Whitey so unfortunately Spanger misses out. He’s stiff, but someone always misses out.
