    Player Watch #8: Bailey Scott - extends contract to end of 2022

    tZ may be a little on the repetitive side when it comes to his whipping boys. However on Scott, he is not wrong (yet) & he is not right either. Bailey burst onto the scene with a RS Nom in his first game & played some good games since. It is very early days though... he still could be a bust...

    Training Training Thread - News & Live Reports II

    Our forward line is definitely the most inexperienced & weakest. Our backline is pretty solid with Tarrant, MacKay, Walker, McDonald, Corr, Atley, Ziebell & Hayden. A lot of experience back there. Our forward is basically a bunch of kids...

    We need to be a lot smarter with our F50 entries. We can’t just bomb it on Larkey’s head all year... he will get smashed! Hopefully our medium forwards can step up & take the load off him.

    Tyson lined up at nearly every centre bounce for the blue (possibles) team in the half I seen yesterday. He was ok... tough gig against our first team midfield. He looked to be moving well & was trying to link up when the blue team had it.

    From what I saw at the scratch match yesterday, the times Phillips was playing around the ball, he done very well. He won some hardballs & dished them out, then was always on the move again to receive. He laid some good strong tackles too. This is up against Cunners, Jed, Jy & LDU remember! He...

    Hall didn’t do it in the first 3 games of his career as an 18 year old. Rowell had arguably the greatest start to a career as anyone who has played the game. Phillips ain’t doing this. If he gets 9 Brownlow votes for the whole season, I’ll be f***** stoked! He didn’t play a game of footy last...

    News Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion Thread III

    Exactly how long would you like this pandemic to last before you are ok to take the vaccine? What about the long term effects of Coronavirus? The vaccine might not be 100% safe for every single person who gets it, but it sure is a better option than getting COVID.

    I was there for the first half today. It was a pretty serious hit-out... the boys were going in hard! From what I seen: Cunners was looking really good before getting KO’d Jed was everywhere. LDU & Jy are smooth AF & look primed for a big year. Silver was getting used a lot coming out of defence...

    Not sure what thread this belongs in, so I’ll put it here... Luffy clearly still on the payroll @ Champion Data! Jokes aside though... we have a pretty formidable midfield on paper. Not that any supporters from other clubs would recognise or acknowledge this due to our recent performances. We...

    Player Watch #9: Luke Davies-Uniacke -

    As Matthew Lloyd suggested, I feel his most accurate comparison is Chris Judd. Judd was not considered a tough player in his early (WC) days, more an outside type who was also good in the clearance dept. Judd obviously added the toughness side to his game when he went to Carlton & was forced to...

    What a load of tripe... the colour of your boots has zero correlation to your flag chances!

    I dropped past Arden Street last week (Tuesday) to try & catch the boys training. But alas, they were only doing running drills for the 15 mins I was watching. Hall looks in ripping nick... he looks to have slimmed down quite a bit. He is still a deadset unit. Hoping for big things from him this...

    Player Watch #10: Ben Cunnington -

    Agreed. Cunners should have tried a little harder to beat the tag. He almost raised the white flag on some occasions. I just think taggers as a whole could be policed a little better. Close checking is fine, but they shouldn’t be allowed to wrap their arms around opponents at stoppages before...

    Player Watch #10: Ben Cunnington -

    Yep, Cunners got deadset raped by DeBoer & some of the other taggers in 2019. Nothing annoys me more than umpires allowing the game’s best players to get scragged for 120 minutes & not award a single free kick. It is something the AFL really need to start clamping down on IMO. I won’t be holding...

    Gotta love Bigfooty pre-season hype... If he is Lachie Neale (Brownlow Medalist) with more brute force, we may just about have the best player in a generation on our hands!! Maybe just temper expectations a little, until he plays an actual AFL game...

    He needs time to master the ‘defensive structures’ that coaches & players are always banging on about. The back 6-7 work as a team unit, covering opposition players & plugging space, it’s not a matter of simply ‘beating your man’ like it once was... He will need time to learn to play in unison...

    If he doesn’t need to be trained as a defender, why are they literally training him as a defender in pre-season training?

    Sam Skinner and Flynn Appleby

    Skinner is the obvious choice (if he impresses in the pre-season) given our lack of Key Forwards. However, I would like to keep a spot open for mid season, considering there will be some kids who didn’t get a chance to put their name up in lights last year. There is bound to be a few kids who...

    Apologies... I misread your post. Big year for Jack after an injury affected season in 2020. There is definitely a spot for him in our forward line with Brown gone. He needs to protect Larkey & smash packs for our crumbers. He needs to vastly improve on his goalkicking though... he has the major...
