Possible worst case scenario team if Wood and Cooney dont get up.
B. Brett GOODES (McGrath), Dale MORRIS (Brown), Jordan ROUGHEAD (Martin)
HB. Jason JOHANNISEN (Zorko), Tom YOUNG (Cornelius), Daniel CROSS (Bewick)
C. Liam PICKEN (Rockliff), Nick LOWER (Rich), Ryan GRIFFEN (Raines)
Down by 3 points at half time: The story so far:
Roberts - Getting well beaten by Andrew AINGER.
Mulligan - One turnover but has won the one on one battle thus far with WUNDKE (who won the SANFL goalkicking last year).
Hooper - Playing down back and entrusted with the kick outs. Has...
Galea has been fantastic at Port Melbourne and by far one of the most damaging forwards in the VFL at present.
GALEA believe it or not was always on the outer when playing at Willi under Gotchy. I know there were issues with his attitutde and work rate. Seems to have turned it around.
Out Wood (inj)
EMERG - Cordy, Dickson, C.Smith
Just on a side note thoughts go out to Jarrad Boumann who after playing Saturday night spent the rest of the night in hospital and all day yesterday. Will have surgery today to have his appendix removed and will probably miss a...
Boumann will be a definate out for you guys regardless of form. Spent all of yesterday in hospital and will have surgery today to have his appendix removed. Wishing him all the best with his recovery, I'd imagine its at least a 3-4 week lay off.
I thought you guys really but up a good fight.
I have adopted the Saints as my wife's family are all avid supporters, so I end up tagging along to most games.
I thought Blake was serviceable in the ruck and really worked hard. The loss of Fisher really hurt and made a massive difference...
Clay Smith - In and out of the game, hard at the contest. Disposal was questionable and but could not work into the game. More serviceable than others and tried to spice things up but had little to no support in the midfield. 5/10
Jason Tutt - Still looks slightly underdone...
What do you base this on? As I mentioned earlier there were plenty worse. Internally they were happy with his game. Panos was terrible redpath was terrible moles turned it over countlessly. Talk about having a scape goat.
There were plenty worse than Mulligan today. Galea kicked two whilst opposed to him, one was when Jolley zoned back and the other was not from a marking contest. He then went onto Burstin half way through the third and kept him goalless.
