Absolutely, Shaw is a rookie coach the learnings from that game will be invaluable going forward.That abomination was a reality check and a necessary loss to provide a utter crap baseline. It is better that this utter crap baseline is at the end in 2019 than at an inopportune time in the 2020 season. It will make Rhyce’s mind spin and will generate plan B’s and C’s etc. He will be deeply uncomfortable this week as will be the players. Good.
Apart from the s**t conditions, the umpires borderline cheating (yes you Razor ya flog) at one stage we had Jed, Jy and TT in the guts up against Dangersook, Duckwood ans Duncan - about 100 total games of experience against 700 games...
Shaw is developing on the run already.
Half this board wanted us to tank a few weeks ago (and I was one of them) so the loss last night doesn’t stress me one bit, it’s what we do this offseason is what we should be looking forward to.
