Just me or does our defence look much worse without Harry there? I have a feeling we'll only realise how much he contributed this year. I miss him already
Thought Atkins was a plus. But it's still one paced. We looked a bit that way all over the ground tonight. Think quick sides are going to course us some bother.

Anyone who thinks they won’t all play is not paying attention. They will all play lots of games in 2021. And that doesn’t stop Atkins getting a game, if they want they will pick him too.
No one has questioned we wont play too many defenders, particularly too many slow tall immobile defenders.


we have just said its wrong. As history has proven year in year out. We had a player who should be playing on the second key foward playing on dustin martin in a grand final ffs.

So today I've heard from the media and THE club Stanley had a knock,Stanley had an arm injury, Stanley had concussion.Poor bugger.
So he took a knock in last week's game, and then when walking to the rooms he fell down the stairs when he put his arm out to break his fall but instead broke his arm while at the same time he bumped his head causing the concussion...

So if Clark is part of our best 22 who do we use as our first-choice wingmen this year given that we all of Menegola, Smith, Clark and Duncan are arguably at their best on a wing?
Well, since we didn't have anyone bothering to play in the middle tonight, just spread across them across the centre in a line of 4

PS and Tuohy makes 5

I was just thinking of how Clark will fit in with Atkins down the back and smith and Duncan on the wings

Very rudimentary and hastily compiled 22 which could have numerous combinations subbed in and out... but damn there is still quite a bit of AFL capable talent on the sidelines. We have a deep list.

I'd take Menegola off the wing. Play him a High Half Forward, with short stints at centre bounces. He ain't quick enough on the wing, even though he can run all day, we will be better served with pace - Duncan, I Smith, Clark - that's all star wingers right there ;)
