Stupid coaching by Beveridge, lost at the selection table.

Dicko's been amazing for us in finals in the past - doesn't play.
Trengove is a strong, battle-hardened utility that played a great game in the ruck vs GWS 3 weeks ago - doesn't play. Instead we opt to keep Schache playing second ruck, who is historically terrible in the role, especially against strong, physical ruckmen like Mumford.

It's easy to pick on guys like Hayes, Richards, Smith, etc, but they're inexperienced players who haven't played a final before. It's incumbent on the coach to surround them with proper experience and leadership to help them adapt, which he didn't.

The one player I would single out is Johannisen. He was putrid, and he's meant to be one of our leaders.

You find out a lot about some players in finals. Schache and Hayes. They’re who we knew that were. Absolutely no chance they would be getting a game at any top 8 side.

Praying to f*****g god Naughton hasn’t done his ACL. Has the heart of a lion and one of only a handful who were up to the standard of finals footy. He’s an absolute gem.

We lost whatever I’ll deal with it

But Why show so much promise towards the end of the season and then go out like that?

The mind boggles...
