Down two goals to zip five minutes in. Seriously rusty start - WC looking pretty sharp by comparison.

Give Firefox a try if you have it btw, I've always found AFL.com.au/club broadcasts struggle with Chrome for some reason (they endlessly buffer in and out) so I keep a copy of Firefox just to watch those.

Fremantle are running really hard for each other when we have control of the ball but the skills are letting them down.

2.1 to 0.0 at QT - we've been really average. None of ours really merits a positive mention so far - Turbo with about 53 clearances, but then continually channeling her inner Danyle Pearce; Runnalls getting a good bit of it and showing endeavour, but her disposal needs some work.

This handball game they are trying to get moving has potential to open up some breaking out the front of the stoppage clearances but I don't like how much the ball is touching the grass.

I suspect the team will try and slow the game down a bit this quarter to control the game a little bit. This constant moving footy outside the stoppages does not work for us.

They are getting quite physical with Miller. She was running to pressure and tackle a lot in the first quarter.

We are ineffective in the ruck. Blake Acres would be really there as far as controlling space, leap and directing the ball to advantage.

Edit - Strom is getting involved a lot around the ground

You can't shirk the contest like that when your name is Hyde. There's been a few of those. Not to question their commitment or courage but the review will have a lot of "what was that? Is that what we stand for?"

Freo are hitting the stoppages at full speed, if we win clean hands and move it quickly to that mobile loose we are going to look really exciting.

If we don't we will look completely without defense in there.

It feels like we have been playing like we have been training this preseason. One more quarter.

Hyde has fumbled every single time she's been near it. What is going on?

I think people underestimate how much talent we lost in the off-season. Sharp, Duffy, even Gooch. Gonna be hard to hold ground and we were barely a finals team come the end of the season. I’m not convinced this team is a flag contender this year.
