Too many passengers...Reid, Brander, Crippa, Hurn lost a yard of pace, JK gone in first few minutes. Williams first game. At least the boys have experienced the benchmark, and were realistically probably due for a loss.

Very happy with Williams and O'Neill though. The midfield have stood up. They'll use this as good motivation. Brander and Reid will be an absolute liability in finals unfortunately.

The positive.

-we have half a dozen players from our best 22 to come back. Yeo, Redden, Allen,Waterman, small forward other than Reid, and Hutchings not massively underdone

- tigers can’t kick this straight again

- surely can’t get umpiring like this again
Forgot Nelson

Also played a man down the whole game without Kennedy

Painful game this one, really haven't learnt anything from it.


Can't win when the game is played in the shitty scrappy clinches, that's the tigers game.

Couldn't get our game going at all in these conditions and with the personel we have available.

Tigers straight kicking says a lot about the way we've defended. Sure, got some free kicks but at least 4-5 times we've either spoiled into the hot spot or tried to mark it and it gets roved off the pack. Spoil to the ******* boundary.

Simmo really only has one gameplan and it doesn't cut it when the opposition are good and plan for us. Do the simple things right.

And Barrass is never going to be a proper fullback. We need to find someone better for that role.

Our game relies on them dominating in the air too. It’s why we seem to be so hot and cold sometimes. Either they need to be held accountable or we need a different plan
Then we are in trouble because the good sides will make them be accountable and not allow them to sit in space on their own.
