BURNIE raised plenty of eyebrows when it made a high-profile quartet of recalls for tomorrow’s second semi-final against Launceston.
Frequent flyer – both on and off-field – Russell Robertson headlined the inclusions on Thursday night.
Injury absentees Andrew Lee, Rohan Baldock and Brayden Hayes were also included in an extended bench.
Earlier Thursday, coach Brent Plant was pessimistic about the chances of Baldock and Lee in particular but a final decision is unlikely until this morning.
Big man Lee last played in round 11 and has been troubled by a thigh injury.
Forward Baldock underwent an abdominal operation in May and has been gradually working his way back to full health and then match fitness.
He has been sighted running for the colts side in recent weeks.
Goalsneak Hayes was sidelined by the dreaded osteitis pubis earlier this season but had been playing in the Dockers’ colts side.
