Early nomination for worst post of the year..OUT: Rivers & 1 x Jetta/Sparrow
IN: Hibberd & Melksham
I thought Rivers did well.There's nobody to replace him with but I thought Jackson got a lot wrong tonight. Hopefully just a bad day out because he's been good up until now.
Can't believe I'm saying this, but would probably lean towards dropping Rivers rather than Hunt off tonight's form.
He'll definitely be better served playing in the AFL, as you've said, he needs to get used to the speed of the game etc, but I reckon he'd absolutely tear VFL games apart playing as the main ruckman, which would do wonders for his confidenceDoubt Jackson is going to improve playing in the VFL. Needs to adjust to the speed of the contest. Good chance he gets dropped when Brown and Weideman are fit but if that happens we have to be content with him stagnating.
But if he starts leading to the spots that its easier to kick goals from, is he getting the same number of opportunities?Fritsch's goalkicking technique is pretty good. I think the problem is where he takes his shots, he leads into the pockets 50-30 metres out. Often to the wrong side for a lefty. He has to be more central, then we'll see the goal kicking improve.
Perfect post for the "You know you're a Melbourne supporter when...." threadEven though the Giants look awful, I still don’t feel too confident, surely we’d be strong favourites right?
Be surprised if there’s any changes, perhaps Hibberd for Hunt, but I’m happy to give Hunt another few games otherwise.
Tipped against the dees the last two weeks, but might tip us for the first time this season this week.
