So, Houli's dodgy calf is the only thing preventing the first ever premiership team from playing together again in history. 

C'mon Bach, get it right.

I'd prefer to see some first gamers in the first round -- at least as an emergency. Can you "threepeat" with the same lineup? Or do you have to find some new talent? (Not that I don't want to see Carlton get smashed)

Caddy played well against Collingwood, he's certainly put his case to be selected.

Not sure who to leave out from your team, though I didn't notice heaps from Pickett or Aarts, considering they were both on for most of the game.

What about Ralphsmith? I don't know anything about him.

@bones Agreed. 

It will be interesting who they choose as the injury sub. I reckon that they’ll go with Chol. He can play as a tall forward or back or in the ruck.

Looks like they are treating the injury sub just as an expansion of the normal interchange bench.

Great game last night though. Seeing Dusty so dominant in round one, Jack kicking goals, Balta influential. What a time to be a Richmond supporter.

Have we broken Geelong this time? They're currently 32 points down at half time against Adelaide!

Five goals to Tex Wakka sounds like he's now unbroken. Bears vs. Cats next week might be the breakening test.
