Finals now out of reach as many of us expected, still very disappointing that when the season was on the line we weren't even able to be competitive. Time to get some games into the youth and let Ballas and Sandi retire.

For me its something like:
In: Carter, Dixon, McCarthy, Banfield
Out: Duman, Sandilands, Ballas, Bewley

No defensive pressure. Matera and Cerra again fail to lay a tackle between them. Oh for 5 years ago with a younger Ballantyne, Mayne, de Boer, Barlow, Crowley, Suban ...when the team did the hard stuff.

He was playing backline. You know who else got 0 tackles? Hamling and Duman - two backmen. Logue had 1, Ryan 2, Wilson 2.

Tackling is all about effort and desire, no need to have high skills if you pressure and tackle. How far we have fallen from 4 or 5 years ago when we at least had relentless pressure and got numerous goals from turnovers, now all we do is zone up and let teams waltz it out of our forward line or middle.

Out: Ryan (injured), Ballas, Sandi (its not working!), Schultz, Bewley, Wilson.
In: Nyhuis, Carter, Hughes, Banfield, McCarthy, Switta.
Season done and dusted. Nothing to lose.
We are not getting beaten because of Sandi, Darcy is too unfit to run the game out and Lobb is much more dangerous and durable as a forward.

Only because we don't have Hogan, Taberner, Cox. If either of those 3 are in Sandi is out and Lobb/Darcy are rucking but we aint got the cattle(depth) to do s**t about it.

Don’t even know where to start with the ins and outs. Would really like to see Carter get a debut, maybe even a Tom North debut as well. Anyone that is playing injured (looking at you Nathan Wilson) shouldn’t be playing

Out: Ryan (inj), Wilson (i've been saying for weeks he is playing sore), Balla (didn't do enough to hold his spot), Darcy (we can't keep 3 rucks in), Bewley (didn't do enough to hold his spot)

In: Nyhous, Hughes, McCarthy, Crowden & Banifeld (like to see them both in for remainder of year to see how they have developed)
