Should mark them hard if they want to contend for the flag imo, often the GF comes down to a single moment and well let's just say you don't want to stuff it up.Dunno, I think we just mark our own hard occasionally
I would say its more often execution of skill than the actual decision
Eg one not under pressure but jack out on his own and i cant remember who kicked to him maybe grundy, but the kick was so bloody high a crow defender got to him to spoil
If the kick was nice and flat we were off
Yep mark them hardShould mark them hard if they want to contend for the flag imo, often the GF comes down to a single moment and well let's just say you don't want to stuff it up.
Anyways nitpicking one particular moment late in the game isn't the reason we lost the game. There are other glaring issues that need to be addressed. Including the backline and the mids when the other midfield turns up the heat. I50 kicking is also atrocious (but that comes down to decision making as well i.e. just not lowering our eyes).
Especially with the pressure in the pack/contest. Titchell had a down game, but on a whole the quality if the game is something to look forward withYep. Was tearing my hair out. But he's usually got decent vision, sometimes even the best players just don't see the right option. Imagine him firing out the handball though, Buddy getting on the end and goaling from 50...
Almost certainly the former. He would have had 4 guys yelling for him to handball into the corridor then.Kicking it forward was either a function of Tom panicking under intense pressure, or a communication breakdown. Perhaps both. There is a lesson to be learned either way.
It would have been so loud he may not have heard to be fair. Then again, a part of me thinks that Tom would have looked had he expected people to be there. It's an interesting one, but I guess it's for the coaches to figure out.Almost certainly the former. He would have had 4 guys yelling for him to handball into the corridor then.
Mitchell reverted to what he has always done ( & probably drilled into him from birth).Almost certainly the former. He would have had 4 guys yelling for him to handball into the corridor then.
He takes two but there was probably another 7 there. They had to go all in and it was worth a shot.Yep, this cost us.
The other thing i didn't like about the last couple of minutes was Buddy going into the centre for the last bounce. We have the most stacked midfield in the league for clearances, just stay up forward bud and take two defenders out of the game.
