Dont think we will get Shierlaw back either
Jan 7 tweet:


would have her able to rejoin society on Jan 14 but would not have trained and imagine would be a bit weak.

Some many Bulldogs players with Covid they think they will struggle to field a team v Geelong. Niece has got it and is obviously out.

Forceful front on contact? WTF? Never heard of this. Is this something specific to womens footy?

I thought the exact same thing! I had to go back and watch the what happened. Hosking had her head down bending over to pick up the ball, Matin went in to tackle but Hosking's head was pointing towards her. Just a free kick in years gone by, but reportable now.

So are they saying forceful front on or head high? Seems confusing.

Still no Friend or Richards... makes one think that they must be a bit off it if they can get a gig in this developing team. But I'm sure it's not like that.




IN: Exon, McDonald, Shierlaw, Xenos
OUT: Matin (omitted), McCarthy (omitted), Shannon (omitted), Watt (AFL Health and Safety protocols)

Shocked they dropped Matin! Thought she brought some good physicality and disposed of the ball well.
Yet kept a few players in who barely got near the ball.

Still too tall for my liking.
3-4 tall fwds (Shierlaw, Vogt, Guttridge and Grieser), 3-4 taller def (L.Burke, Ott, Van Dyk, Jakobson) plus Cutting in the ruck.

Big call dropping Kate McCarthy who is one of the few who offer any run and carry even if she did have a bit of a stinker last week

Yeah Matin is possibly the best kick in the squad on either leg, and one of the smartest footy brains. The ball in her hands in the safest bet IMO... getting the ball to her is the issue. But like G, they have bigger bodies but haven't been able to break tackles really. We do need speedier players though, ground coverage was our worst area, along with agility around clearances.

Agree about the talls too. Maybe we're playing all of them to find the best performing, then cutting half of them after a few weeks. KMac seemed hell rusty, missing kicks and marks and generally quiet. Not alone though. Shame Shannon couldn't play in this guernsey.

Very exciting ins though. X to light it up is my tip :thumbsupemoji:

Yeah very happy with the ins just felt the outs could have been different.
For mine Vogt and Ott were particularly lucky.
May be a bit bias as Matin has become one of my favorites but felt she did some good things fwd and has some potential to do stints in the middle.

Feel like we are trying to stretch the defense with talls in a hope to free up G but the chaos ball or stop/start footy going fwd is not helping her.
Need the speed underneath so hopefully Xenos & Exon will help with that. Plus Shierlaw up the ground as the out option.
