What's been happening with Sam Darcy. Has he played much this year? I had heard he was injured.

Slow start to season, has played the last 3 or 4 VFL games. Taking cautious approach given nature of his injury.

Yeah I hadn't realised he had been playing. There hasn't been much media or fanfare that I have seen, considering his draft position and family connection.

Darcy and McLean playing well.

Game is almost unwatchable because of the umpiring. Arthur Jones got dudded just before the siren. Caught a player dead cold but the ump let it go. Jones got into the back of said player and a free kick was given.

Umpire’s just don’t reward a good tackle anymore it’s a joke

Disposals at 3/4 time are 302 to 209 according to website (or 291 to 199 on the broadcast)!

I count 10 players with 6 disposals or less including Jones, Roarke and McNeil.

Lots of stats still need to be credited/updated, happens a lot in the VFL but especially when it's wet. So expect lots of numbers to change post match.

Bleak viewing.

Of course we get a run on when our actual full forward in Hannan plays full forward and not in the back line.

Yep, just trying to make the point we were getting smashed in disposals either way, not being critical of differences between sources.

Yeah it's been a tough watch. I wasn't trying to call you out either it's just that live VFL numbers can be skewed as these matches aren't reviewed live (AFL/AFLW matches are) so there will always be a substantial number of changes post-match in terms of the numbers.

I'll never take Melbourne footy infrastructure for granted again. 50min train ride plus a 10min uber to get here. No buses or trains anywhere near here.

Is it the ground/s at Caboolture?

I've been to a few pre-season games there in the past.

About 15 mins into the last quarter someone nearly took an absolutely massive hanger for us.
Anyone know who? (The commentary is as bad as the umpiring and weather. )

What is Toby McLean's TOG like? I imagine he is still on limited minutes.

Yeah, I was wondering that too. Was it Hannan?
