Changes to the starting line up is not just players in players out but will also be positional changes
Cleary coming does that
It moves burton out to center
Capewell back into forwards

starting side
I did not read that.
I did the exact same thing
This little exchange made me smile :) Thanks guys, needed that.

Anyway, I can see both sides of the debate. Cleary is so instrumental to our success that you want him playing as much as possible to win games, but you also don't want to risk furthering an already serious injury.

Myself though, I tend to lean to the "play him" side of the fence. I think having him there and getting that momentum and confidence back in the side would be more beneficial than not. I'd like to see the boys get that smug (to borrow an LU trope) back into the way they play. And I just can't see that happening without Nathan in the 13.

It's 50/50 either way so I agree. Might as well get him match fitness and combinations.

No dramas. Now, how can one block these annoying ads?

Depends how many weeks you think it will take to build up to that level really. As long as it there come week one of the finals is the main thing
