I thought Wills was pretty good today and his seven tackles were a team high. Should stay in and run with Parker next week.

I disagree and that's okay. :)
Yeah, he's not a long term option. But just given our injuries and today, we'll lose Langdon, maybe Varcoe, then next to be dropped would be Brown, who was unsighted.

Brown had 2 kicks for the game...
....and?

His handpasses to advantage in heavy traffic are excellent. The antithesis of Treloar.

He chased and tackled very well in the first half. Easily one of our better players to half time. Fell away in the 2nd half when the experienced players finally stepped up and did something.

Langdon, Howe, Phillips, Aish, Varcoe and Greenwood were all much worse than Brown today.

I’m just trying to get my head around the idea that a player can get weeks for bumping a payer with his arms down while going for the ball,while another player can get off for deliberately running at a player who doesn’t have the ball and elbowing him in the head.
Two reasons for that -

1. It's the AFL love child Ablett

2. The other wears Black and White stripes.

No Big Loss and Easily Replaced
In one way yes Dave but in another not so much - no one chases and tackles like Varks mate - he brings an intensity and ferocity married to his speed and judgement that is a rare package.

Stats never tell the full story, intensity and unrelenting pressure have their effects on opposition players.

He was the lowest ranked player on ground at half time from either team

If Franklin is still out next week, l would also give Moore another week off, and let him have a good two week block of footy before the bye.

The Reid/Cox debate isn't clear. Reid is much better bellow the legs and in close. I like mike123 changes with Cox in and Reid maintaining his spot.

Play them both
