I saw the first half only and whilst it was good to see him get a lot of the ball and do a lot right, I felt he butchered the ball a bit. And sometimes he didn't take the first option.
But a pleasing outing overall. Seems to have slimmed down and his lateral movement still good.
Litherland started slowly, almost looking lost at times. His second half was strong and in the last Q showed good judgement by knowing where to position and when to leave his man.
Probably going to spend at least another week at BH
The frustration was many times they got caught behind. Yes the ball was kicked long to a pack but we never looked like taking a mark.
Fitzy was just going. Jones not much better.
But Coburg were good value. They will trouble all sides and beat most sides at home
Heading out so I'll just add some brief comments
Stewart has a bright future. He again smashed a few blokes with tackles.
Pittonet I thought was the best big man on the ground. The Coburg ruckman is a big body that loves to make his presence felt. Pittonet did that and more.
I concentrated on the defence in the second half and it became apparent that they were not working as a team. Selfish in some respects. Mira had a mare as did Spangher and Lithers seemed hesitant. There was a real lack of leadership today.
Willi were too nippy around the packs. they took the...
Shem definitely has something to offer. We should persist and he needs to play at this level rather than the development team if he is going to be fast-tracked. He definitely had defenders concerned when he hit the pack.
I thought O'Brien was good today. I even saw him outbody his opponent a...
After seeing O'Rourke live a few times, today it struck me that he is an accumulating centreman type. A good distributor and link man in the Ben Allan mould.
Ceglar basically did as he pleased at the centre bounces. Silver service to the midfielders.
Howe was a bit quieter than previous games...
I saw Shem live for the first time today. The guy plays the same sort iof role Hawkins plays. Totally dependent on delivery and body work. Purely a stay at home FF at this stage. Kicks straight though.
Jed was superb. He laid one of the best tackles I have seen today. Basically picked up the...
Grimmers is cooked. Looked like he wss half arsed all day. Missed some goals that he should be kicking considering he does stuff all else.
Hartung was busy and wants the ball in his hands. You can never have enough players who demand the ball.
Ceglar battled back after being manhandled early...
Sicily had a run on a wing in the 3rd and did well I thought. The boy reminds me a lot of Mundy the way he kicks especially.
Woody was superb in close and his repeat efforts were very good for someone who has missed so much footy.
The boys in the backline today didn't have to do a lot but gee...
