Not much to get from this game but I am curious to see who we'll roll as our 2nd ruck because going forward it won't be Jenkins from the looks of things and with Otten retiring and us unlikely to go dual ruck again (we can only hope) then someone will have to step up into this role.

Keath I'm guessing will get it? Kind of an issue for us going forward too, I suppose Himmelberg but I can't see how he works long term either as long as Lynch remains on our list as Fog/Tex/Lynch/Himmelberg is too tall/we lose too much defensive pressure with too many of them.

Anyone relying on Himmelberg will be disappointed, t this point even a bad day JJ is better than Berg. Can't take a contested mark, limited presence, I don't hold much hope for him

I will be livid if we belt the Doggies tomorrow.

Tells me our guys (players and coaches) are mentally weak and can perform once the expectation of performance is removed.

Best wishes.
You can still deny the Dogs finals.
Hawks' comfortable win with a percentage buffer will plant a seed of doubt in the Dogs' minds.
Must target Dunkley and Macrae.
We don’t tag when it matters let alone when it doesn’t

If we win tomorrow it will be because we’ve changed our game plan to an attacking one whilst we chase a huge win

Yeah I'm neither here nor there about him yet but typically it's a tall in the forward line that chips in for some ruck minutes and Tex/Fog aren't capable of that. So it's either him, bring in a different tall forward or we start to look at defenders such as Keath who mightn't even be on the list next season either.

It's not super important but someone needs to go in there when ROB needs a rest. Maybe CEY?

******* lift tomorrow you useless hacks

No chance. Doggies are paying $3.50 over 40 plus, load up.

The teams we've beaten this year are Gold Coast x 2, Saint x 2, Freo, Sydney, just scraped in against Melbourne, an injury ravaged Richmond and GWS at AO.
