It always has a very bat friendly cricket wicket which helps. ODIs usually get around 330 there that I've seen; t20s often nudge 200.It’s an oddly large ground. I remember smith smacked 80 off 50 balls there in a t20 a few years ago when everyone thought he wasn’t a power hitter
You can't see us winning at all?Geelong terrifies me, our record against them over recent years is just horrible, even after our sh*te years, we just can’t seem to get it done, all between the ears
Load up on the Cats at 1-39, happy to have egg on my face if we do win, but I can’t see it happening.
Both will debut before mid year I reckon. Injury gods have been very kind in game so far. Just a matter of time.Not saying play them, hope they are developing well but we have a Bowey and Laurie in the bank to debut some time in the next 12 months! Normally they would have played by round three being such high picks.
Yah. There’s no special reason our draftees haven’t played yet, they’re just underdone like most others. It’s not necessarily better than Oliver or Kossie being ‘forced’ to play R1 after being drafted (and both playing quite well, incidentally)Lack of footy last year, short preseason and interchange cap at 75 makes it really tough for any first year mids.
Sparrows averaging 9 disposals this season.Sparrow was ordinary with the ball, but pretty good without the ball. He was pretty solid the past 2 weeks, I don't think you can drop him off the back of one poor game. That almost applies to Jetta as well, who was fantastic last week taking Gresham out of the game.
I'd be fine with Hibberd coming in. I just don't like the idea of taking out any of the younger, hungrier players who are the ones really ramping up our pressure off the ball. It's been a pet hate of mine for years, and I'm sure most others, how inconsistent our pressure is(especially front half/inside 50).
Reckon Mcdonald is very lucky there are no replacements, but it would have been near impossible to find space in our forward 50 Sunday night.
