............after 9 straight years of finishing no higher than 12th, and with a very nice academy bonus?Brisbane have nailed the youth vs experience balance perfectly. Who is their list manager?
EDIT - some chap called Dom Ambrogio.
The only thing he couldnt do was kick the ball but it seems we have had a plethora of those over the years LOL And he doesnt have to do that anymore anywayBrady?
Reckon he's up to it and I don't understand why you would think he isn't. His record as a guy who steps up to every single challenge and making a success of it is there for all to see.
Why wouldn't we back him in now?
regardless we should give him some more time and establish even better relationships with the club, players and coachesIf we go 0-3 from here I'll concede he might not be ready yet. Depends how we play of course.
But win 1 and play well in 2, he's gotta be unlucky to miss out.
Win 2 and there has to be a contract on his desk when he gets home from Perth.
Our boys were corridor side of their opponents at almost all times. Just piss weak tackling efforts meant it counted for nil.Selection was a definite negative. A mid down a significant problem that wasn't able to be overcome.
Allowing *'s HB's to move freely through the corridor also a negative.
Has been impressive but this week not his best effort.
So if Jmac keeps getting a game this year in your belief should he get the job if we lost it at the selection table.He made his first cock up this week, let’s see if he learns from it?
He made this game tougher than it needed to be with an ordinary night at the selection table.
Let’s hope the boys respond against Brisbane, because he let a golden opportunity slip today to make it close to a lock.
In an ideal world we could just fusion dance Goldy and Campbell.I will have serious doubts about where he thinks we are heading if we keep dipping into the McMillan and Hrovat well, instead of seeing what some of our depth can bring?
A player like Hosie should be given game time and I wouldn’t be against dropping Goldy to see if Campbell can be the number 1 ruck?
Godly may be gone next year, so let’s see if we need to look for another ruckman or if Campbell can fill a need?
Every week we'll learn something.Looking forward to it to be honest. No lack of pressure and tackles pls
Now we're not really playing for finals I'm looking forward to it. Nothing to lose. Let's find out a bit about what Rhyce is really about. His team were ordinary yesterday, but good enough to stay in it, and then bad enough to balls it up. He was out-coached and I suspect his players didn't stick to plans. Senior players didn't step up. Younger players didn't show much. He'll start the next two games as clear underdogs and in enemy territory.Big fortnight coming up
IMO it's also clear we've hit a bit of a flat spot in terms of physicality. It's not something that you can just do every week.Now we're not really playing for finals I'm looking forward to it.

We wanted a coaching audition? We have a coaching audition.
Yep. The physicality has been fantastic but went missing yesterday. Toughness is great, but need something else when it falls away for moments, quarters, games, weeks.IMO it's also clear we've hit a bit of a flat spot in terms of physicality. It's not something that you can just do every week.
If Rhyce is the man I want him to start setting standards now.
I'm interested to see how we move forward, especially in games that realistically don't mean a lot.
