Very surprised that they are still giving the Melbourne Cup oxygen with the reactionary way they cover things on the program. Thought they'd be team 'Nup to the Cup'. Katherine Murphy is posh Irish so of course she still flies the flag for that (and rugby).
Nice of North Melbourne to mark the retro round by bringing back the flood.
This was always going to be a forgettable slog against that opposition, in those conditions, missing those players and at that venue. Happy for Zuth.
I was expecting a lot more from Freo last night and I think of a lot of their supporters around me thought that too. Absolute bruise free footy on their first prime time game in years.
Danger filled the Rohan role well early on just without the kicking. Was right behind the Close goal to open...
They can be flakey early so can hopefully get them early. Then again we can flakey early too.
Last 2 wins have been against the Pies and Hawks so whilst the force is with them they are not jedis yet. Carlton also beat them.
Certainly wet and windy over this way today. As bad as the corresponding fixture last season. It's going to be a real low skill struggle. Kind of negates their ruck men/resting talls up forward I guess.
