Clearly we don't have the cattle nor the experience, but most disappointed in the intensity drop off since halfway through the 2nd quarter.

If we do get some late ones, it won't paper over what is right now, a very average list when depth is tested.

I reckon Butters stood in that posiiton for about 10 seconds and no one went to him. Our stoppage structure since quarter time has been really bad, also not helped by the fact that we're no longer winning the ball.

It's not that simple.

Port are a very experienced & well drilled midfield that work together to chop players out of the game.

We need Cunners & Jed back.
I disagree tbh. I've watched Paddy Cripps do it by himself at Carlton for years. They'd be 15 goals down and the bloke would still be getting 30 odd touches whilst no one else on his team would be getting near it. Same with Nat Fyfe.

Scott got a nice kick in the head while on the ground before that stoppage, good redemption to go on to kick the goal.

Never recovered after that Corr non-call push. Dropped our heads and lost confidence and stopped working.

First touch from some of our smalls going forward has killed us, Turner's missed 2 or 3 simple handballs and Mahony, who's usually pretty clean, has fluffed a few. We won't go anywhere unless we clean that up. Might have been a different game if we'd capitalised early and got a 2 or 3 goal break.

First quarter was really good stuff. We're gonna have a few good moments this year with LDU, Stephenson, Jy etc. in the middle, there's some real firepower when it all goes well. I think we'll knock off a good side or two.
