The Twos: Round 21

It’s that time again where we take a look at who’s on their way out and who’s putting their hand up for senior selection, in The Twos.

ADELAIDE

Round Review
The 139-point win over Brisbane was one of the Crows’ best performances of the year. Tom Lynch, Taylor Walker and Eddie Betts all chimed in with four goals.

New Injuries
Paul Seedsman – corked buttock – test

Potential Omissions
Reilly O-Brien – Sam Jacobs’ return
Richard Douglas – failed to make much of an impact on the game when Ellis-Yolmen did, could lose his place for Scott Thompson

The Twos Stats
Adelaide’s Reserves had a bye.

BRISBANE

The Lions’ woes continue after suffering the biggest loss of the season to Adelaide. Archie Smith again impressed with 15 touches and 32 hitouts while Ryan Bastinac and Dayne Zorko both laid 12 tackles.

New Injuries
None

Potential Omissions
Ryan Lester – finished with only seven disposals, failing to make any impact
Matthew Hammelman – comfortably beaten by a better opposition and could be on the edge

New Injuries
Alex Sexton – corked quad – test
Tom Nicholls – knee – TBC

GWS

Round Review
Won in the closing minutes against a gallant Suns outfit. An ugly win, but one sure to help come September.

New Injuries
Dylan Shiel – groin – test

Potential Omissions
Sam Reid – The likeliest omission for the returning Shiel plus a host of youngsters vying for a recall.

MELBOURNE

Round Review
The best win under Paul Roos at the club. Dom Tyson is really becoming something isn’t he?

New Injuries
None

Potential Omissions
Jayden Hunt – a host of players performing in the VFL could force Hunt out.

Round Review
The Roos continue in their decline and are hobbling toward finals after Saturday night’s loss.

New Injuries
Ben Brown – knee – TBC
Ryan Clarke – shoulder – test
Scott Thompson – groin – TBC

The Roos have their hands full, sweating on the fitness of Brown, Clarke and Thompson.

PORT ADELAIDE

Round Review
Embarrassed by Sydney at the SCG. Definitely not the same team from 2014.

New Injuries
None

Potential Omissions
Karl Amon – a quieter game for a player who seems to rotate in and out of the side.
Logan Austin – if Lobbe returns, Trengove will move back and someone needs to budge

RICHMOND

Round Review
A hard fought win over arch rivals Collingwood was the moral booster the Tigers sorely needed.

New Injuries
None

Potential Omissions
Ben Griffiths – has shown promise this year, but had little contribution on Friday night
Daniel Rioli – Was commendable in the win, but with similar types performing in the VFL, Rioli could make way
