He looked devastated at half-time but might relieved after the game. Perhaps we play better with Howe and one tall. There is an argument that we are too cumbersome with both Roughie and Moore in defence.
Still one more key defender left now, than what we took into the GF. Howe or Scharenberg back and we should be ok-ish for the next two weeks.

Cameron-Finlayson and Reiwoldt-Lynch should be matched up ok with a medium and Roughy.

Agree, we may not need Moore for the finals now that we have Roughie. Howe will be back but Langers not returning would be a loss.

Terrible news. That's 3-4 weeks of caution at least, hope he bounces back strong this year
Well if it's four weeks of caution, he will be underdone if he's to play in the finals. Guess we have to assess the risk of playing him, especially when there are already men like Jamie in the team.

Yep huge chance of that. The week off before finals helps, and last year we weren't afraid to bring fit blokes back though, were we. Fingers crossed it's not too severe!

That’s why we should never let Moore and his manager try and get top dollar for his “ services” at contract time. Going to be another Reid for 8 or so years. Pay the big coin to durable guns like Grundy.

Very dissapointing
And awkward time of year to tweak a hammy

Difference to last year is he has played multiple games was always gonna happen

Didn't look to severe

On a side note worried Elliott is no longer the same player

Elliott seems to be slightly off with his timing, from what I can see he seems to be doing much the same stuff as he used to but the timing is astray.

So De-List Moore?
Pointed out years ago he's body ain't reliable
Which now puts us under the pump
Puts extra pressure on the list
5 guys who are learning the game
Keene tohill atu Wilson Magden
7 guys under injury clouds constantly
Moore wells Reid dunne shaz wills elliott
Rehab and development
Broomhead, murphy, langdon
Stupidity
Murray Stephenson
Not ready
T brown Daicos lynch
Not up to it
Crocker
About gone
Mayne sack Levi

So the above explains my concerns from 2 years ago

Maintaining a list with 24 ?

Means you have weak points in your side which is exploited
Guys get games who shouldnt

I think its unfortunate we'll really need to re-assess whether he's viable long term come end of season.

If Ben Reid has taught us anything, it's you really cant afford to keep these guys.

Maybe
about time we trimmed the list back
We're very under resourced with the same 7 guys always injured
Makes our list very thin
Dangerously so with our luck
Good luck finding a list with no injuries. Some are prone, some are not.

At least we have Wills your favourite pick as back up.

Moore is going to have his injuries, such is his body.
But he is who we have and the question is simply: does his good outweigh the not so good of

I say overall it does.

To many if them, then decisions have to be made.

One or two can ve carried if they are high end talent and that’s the best available.

Eg: I’d carry Moore and Elliott because who could possibly be at this level?
Reid, well if he’s cheaper in salary then ok he might be suitable especially as depth.

Carrying long term players is fraught with danger but I’d always look at who is the replacements.

Tough decision making for Guy and his guys.

Yes we have wills but for gods sake read my post
I mentioned wills as a problem
He's in the 24 , great depth player but always injured
You can't live in hope

Only club with this issue is us
Same guys Always injured
Almost puts us on a par with the cellar dwellers with a young list constantly developing

This is why Derek gets bagged when guys get games when the shouldn't and are exposed

Fairly obvious that a few guys last night were not up to it and we're forced to step up

Lucky crisp, Maynard and a few others are durable

He nearly took that screamer. I thought Elliot (although quietist) did some good things last night. Was hard at the ball, presented well etc. Once he is at full match fitness we should be playing him like we did stevo.

Nice opinion
Constructive

Glad your contributing

And yeah I have a chest wound
Watching the same s**t year after year and getting the same result does that
Unstable at best our list and hoping for a miracle

Only an idiot or a zealot would deny the facts
Presently our list is threadbare

We have 24 players with ?

On a list of what 45

Do the maths

Chances to play 20 games and finals IMO %
Wells 0%
Reid 0%
Moore 0%
Elliott 0%
Wills 0%
Aish 0%
Langdon 0% bone on bone
Howe 0% older
Murphy 0% back
Shaz 0%
Brooms 0%
Dunn 0%

We constantly are depleted
We constantly start a season therefore with our hands tied every year behind our backs
A huge handicap

Then off course your more stable players get injured by having to cover, play out of position

Just like Gavin brown ( Chf,lol)

But gee only been going like this for how many years

Great effort last year to play off

You could argue it cost us a flag
Nearly cost us a coach
Cost us recruits
Cost us $
Cost us memberships
Hinders development as our vfl squad suffers and our standards drop

It's the CRITICALi issue

Hopefully 5 or 6 are moved on, and believe me the clubs fully aware

And he put forward pressure on and created scoring opportunities.

Fortunately for us, his contract ended up a lot lower than what the media figures suggested he might get.

We know if D was a horse, he would be shot, but then again so would Joey Daniher and even Tay Adams has been unreliable this year.

Mate. It’s just annoying it’s the same guys injured every year. Our club carries way to many injury prone players.
