Sign a contract with ANZ. There was no space to play a run and gun Game. Couldn't do it v Essendon and didn't do it amazingly v Adelaide either.

We just got Nick davis'ed

End of the day our youngsters struggled a bit today. Wicks, Logan, McInerney, warner all ineffective. We'll bounce back next week at Metricon.

That’s the swans of the last 3 years

Defensively long kicks down the line crap , to many numbers up the ground

Parker , Kennedy and mills to slow all at once in the middle
Any team that clogs things up at the scg will go a long way to winning. There was no space to play the style we've been seeing.

Youngsters main reason we win rounds 1-3. Logan and Warner on the bench at the end. JPK to the bench FFS. He got belted by Greene

Said all I need to say about the midfield.

Clearly the kids hit a wall. They tried hard but with McInerney, Warner, Wicks, Logan, Braeden and, to a lesser extent, Errol, we were basically playing with a few players short. Which isn't ideal in a war of attrition, which derbies typically are. We miss Rowbottom.

Buddy activated beast mode. His recent form - 5, 4, 3, 3, 5 - is unbelievable. Hickey activated beast mode. Hayward is living proof that a reserves apprenticeship doesn't have to be a death warrant for your career. Melican was also impressive, but had a few head-shaking moments (who didn't?)

Hewett did a good job on Greene, he had his opportunities but I wouldn't say many were easy...

We probably had this loss coming. We now know what our best, and what our worst, looks like. Good news is we're 4-1 with sixteen matches left to figure out how to tip the balance back in our favour.

McDonald rested, McLean in. Parker moved to the forward line and the midfields read the riot act. Unfortunately the attacking gameplay has turned a few into complete front runners who don't put the effort in both ways. Parkers pathetic decision to soccer the ball 30 m backwards instead of locking the ball in our forward line should be played back to him on repeat all week, because that was the moment the game was lost.
