There’s about 5 or 6 from our side last week who’s skills are either not up to it, or are just dumb footballers (Tsmith, Lockhart, Spargo, Stretch, Petty etc)

The cupboard is still pretty bare though, I’d be bringing in Pruess, JKH, Hibbberd (if fit).

Care factor for this game has reached an all time low though unfortunately.

Calls for JKH to come in are premature. He was good at the end of last season when the rest of the team were firing, but he's the kind of meh footballer who is very ordinary in a very ordinary team, not someone who's going to drive change towards better standards... in anything. At least Preuss is a campaigner and Hannan a goer.

And they are probably the same people calling out the coaching staff for picking players off the back of limited preparation, after we lose a game.

I don’t think there is any overlap in those people. I may be wrong

There will be some, not yourself. You were quite right about the coaching staff picking unfit players.

Just frustrating after all the captain hindsights after round one, and now some are calling for hannan/JKH to come back in after 1 VFL game after 12 weeks off.

There have been times Josh has been good, but I didn't think Sunday was one of them!

Corey was average.

Both are limited players, exposed when our good players are down on form or injured.
Josh is handy depth. Gets a bad wrap on here unfortunately. Corey is just not up to it. A handy VFL player at best, which unfortunately we have quite a few of atm. I would have much prefered we drafted a young kid than this guy. Maybe with Kent, Bugg and Tyson leaving we felt we needed a slightly more mature body as depth. But he was useless for North and he's done nothing better for us. Will be delisted first chance allowed..

Would have thought it’d make sense for Lever to play VFL again then after a longer than normal break comes back for QB.
