Have the worst small forwards in the league. Just putrid.

Not exactly like-for-like, but may as well roll the dice on the guys who aren't going to butcher everything they touch.

This will make me unpopular since he's more overrated on here than Blakely but Matera's got to go. Outdid himself tonight with a whole 0% disposal efficiency. At least Blakely is still only 24 and Dardy 25. So much faith in a 28 year old. Happy to see Banfield and Acres out. Frederick was out of his depth tonight but I'd give him and Watson another go. McCarthy in and don't really care who else, they've got to be upgrades on those above.

Happy with this. I’d give those guys a chance. Better then what transpired tonight. McCarthy has to play. A natural forward, for the love of god.

As a fan I am used to the idea that our ins do not match the clubs...


And they shouldn't, there are very real reasons why I am not an AFL coach as hard as it is to admit that :laughing:.




But **** me, at this point play Watson, Pina, Thomas, Henry, McCarthy etc and bench Colyer, Conca, Banfield, Bewley etc ...

What do we really have to lose?

Find someone, anyone... that would be something at this point.

I’m sorry but if there are 12 lads who played a Scratchie yesterday that can’t get on that team ahead of Banfield then I ******* give up.
Acres - looks the part. Talks the part. Plays like an AFLW player.
Schultz - popped up with a great smother when the game was over. Did pretty much nothing else. Sadly that will be enough for him to play next week.
How many frees did Darcy give away in the ruck?
Brayshaw and Cerra and Serong only bright spots.

Far out, Banfield and Acres were putrid. The superlatives escape me. Banfield is just dumb.

And the ruck frees are just diabolical. The amount of momentum Darcy is just giving away for free is unacceptable.

Kudos to Brayshaw who was fantastic.
