Waiting in the Wings: Crouch presses for recall, Suns young guns impress, Hickey dominant upon return

Following his surprise omission last week, Matt Crouch responded well collecting 36 disposals and laying seven tackles. After a loss on the weekend, it could be enough to push himself back into the side.

Tom Hickey made a dominant return from injury collecting 23 disposals, and registering 27 hit-outs. His inclusion could have an impact on the job security and scoring potential of Peter Ladhams.

Hunter Clark and Jack Billings were impressive for the Saints and could come into contention this week, while Tyler Sonsie continues to press his case for a Richmond debut.

Gold Coast have some pressure from below too, with James Tsitas, Ned Moyle, Elijah Hollands and Jack Bowes all impressing.
