Crozier's decision making both with his kicking and leaping seem to be why he's fallen out of favour completely. Seems lost with when to jump, when to stay down, and with those kicks too.
Yep. Wouldn’t mind Bedendo getting a run in McCombs forward/wing role.Marra, Bedendo, Schache, JJ putting a ton of pressure on the fringes of the seniors. Puts McNeill, Scott, McComb, Buku on notice tonight. Good to see.
No current season stats available
Not sure I love Buku & Marra in the same team right now though considering they both struggle for 70% TOG, plus really don’t want any of them backing up the ruck and there’d be no Cordy.You would say that Sweet and Buku would like to play well tonight. Bev could go back to the one ruck or he could just do a direct swap for Buku.
Bedendo is the kind of bloke North Melbourne should be offering an extra $100k and an extra year to versus whatever we offer and trying to walk him to the draft.Wallis brilliant when moved into the midfield that quarter.
We must re-contract Bedendo for next season, he's on the verge of AFL standard now.
Our listed players got right on top in that quarter. JJ excellent too.

He is growing in confidence by the minute though, what a game he’s playing! He really needed this I think - not against letting him do it again next week then coming in after the bye for a big second half of the season.
Shows the difference when our VFL side is competitive though
Yeah I get that but who would even be 2nd ruck in that situation? Buku maybe but we haven’t used him there at AFL level, or just mids again?The TOG point is a good one. It probably is a battle between JUH and Buku at this stage. Bev has the habit of one ruck though. I also don't believe Sweet is capable of playing much more than 70% regardless but we should pick 2 capable rucks so that we never get smashed in the ruck.
