Wow, just wow. Completely collapsed in that last quarter, and somehow held on for the win. Plenty of positives to take from the first half, but plenty to work on from the second half.

A few injuries to worry about, too - Cumming, de Boer, Tom Greene.

And we'll be on Toby watch ... again. Damn Toby, you need to be smarter than that! :(

Suspended for umpire contact?
Any other player gets a fine, with Tobes and the negative publicity he will no doubt get from VIC media its really a toss of a coin - his teammates had to be more aware and wrapped him up in cotton wool

Cumming and Green injuries too...Cumming tentatively should be ok but if he is completely unable to weight bear you hope he hasnt fractured anything; Greens shoulder looked bad the way he couldnt extend out at all - hopefully XOH is ready to go...

TT might have to play TFGs role again, though he did a great job that week!

If XOH is fit, would be nice to see Bruhn and him in the starting 22 tearing through the middle again, the turn of speed is quite a refreshing glimpse to the future

Need Cumming to be OK, and XOH hopefully to return, plus Bruhn for their leg speed against the Cats.

Some how held on in the end, Cogs didn't look great unfortauntely, Toby probably getting suspended, hopefully Green is good to go next and recovers because his first half was really solid. Hoping it was just some first game back jitters for Cogs (seemed like was playing a lot more forward, maybe his tank isn't there yet) but he applied some really good pressure around the ground. Cats is gonna be a real big ask without Toby.

Youd have to suspect they call on Davis if Cumming is injured, takes away alot of our defensive drive, Ash might have to go HB in that case with Cogs playing the tagging role if required

Yeah, I presume there's a reason why Davis hasn't got a call up, and doubt he'll get one for a small. Stein had a great first half, not so much in the second, but enough to hold his spot.

Ash back into Cumming's spot, I would think. Or Whitfield. We'll just have to wait for the final injury list to see what magnets are there to move around. But fingers crossed that Cumming can be fit for next week - we need what he brings to the team.
