GOOD:
OK, a win is a win, is a win, but MEH. We beat (easily, in the end) the crappest side in the League and should have, but jeez they made hard work of it.
Tex (keeping Nicks employed) and Fog (his don't-argue in the 4th was a thing of beauty, not to mention the goals).
Dawson, silky class.
Berry, continues to improve.
One of Rowe's better games ...?
Jones, useful when subbed in.

BAD: Both teams' abysmal skill errors.
--- handballs to opponents (both sides)
--- bomb-away kicking, blind around-the-corner, all over the ground (both teams)
--- no real flair, no fluidity, no overlap (both teams).

Rachele appears to have been Nicks-ed.
As ever, McHenry is a scrappy trier but not a goalsneak.
Hamill, unfortunate, but another head knock in a tackle he made. Can't he wear a helmet?

DULL:
The game, as a non-spectacle, was just

Fogarty superb, particularly working in tandem with Tex.

Parnell good again. Soligo's hands - chef's kiss.

North are the worst team I've ever seen. Wowee they are horrific.
Yes, Parnell and Soligo as well; coming along nicely.

Good - Fog, best game of his career. Tex did well, good to see him kick a bag. Dawson was everywhere and did as he pleased. Murray looked OK as the back up ruck. Schoenberg did some nice things and seemed to be getting back to his old self.

Overall a pretty boring game to watch, but always good to see a win.

The midfield mix without Crouch is so much better. Schoenberg's first instinct is to move the ball forward, and doesn't lob up backwards hospital ball handpasses. He also gained roughly the same amount of metres as Crouch did last week with about 18 less touches.

Schoenberg with just the 13 touches, but there were a few instances today that showed why we look more dynamic when he's at his best

Good separation, and better kicking. 9 tackles too. Persist
All must have been in the 2nd half as his 1st half was none existence.
