(From game day thread)

What a cluster of a last quarter. Tigers pressure just killed us.

What I don't get is dropping Buzza for Parsons then seeing Kolo pushed forward, Henry pushed forward, Mena in the ruck. Its dropping Menzel in the QF all over again. Scott over thinks it.....A LOT. Tries to be too smart sometimes and it back fires.

Gregson, Parsons, Zuthrie all back after bugger time in the VFL to find form.....shit trucked it all day....wake up MC.
McCarthy cooked again because he hasn't been allowed to get his body right.

I want to see Buzza back in. Narkle given a go and probably Harry come in for Henry who looked like he needs a rest. Made a lot of mistakes today. Wasn't alone but he isn't in the best 22 if we had a full list to pick from.
I've harped on it before but our forward structure has consistently looked at its best when we play a ruck/fwd in there - whether that's Sav or Buzza doesn't bother me too much because its a structural thing.

When we just have Tommy it doesn't work half as well, and the fact that we were pushing him into the ruck and up the ground then leaving no real marking targets i50 is just one of the symptoms.

Zach Guthrie, Gregson, Parsons, Stanley need to be in our VFL team or we lose

Can't have Kolo in the team either if he's going to do stuff like that

Meh.
Complete lack of a forwardline outside of Hawkins and a midfield who could only bomb, bomb and bomb some more and they only get passed us due to terrible, as per usual, umpiring and some bullshit front running.
We need Selwood, Menzel and likely Taylor back ASAP.
Parsons, Linc and Zuthrie should NEVER play again but if Cook ensures we have sub 10 game players in every game then we are ******, and he should be sacked, that's as close to internal sabotage as it can get.

Was a decent performance. Remember still have Menzel, Henderson, Taylor, Cocky and Guthrie to come back. Menzel will be huge when he is back.

I’m feeling positive. If we play the tigers again with those 5 in the team, especially Menzel, I will feel a lot more confident!

But Guthrie and Gregson have to go out.

Our INS after the bye are looking very promising.

Outs: ZGuthrie, Gregson, Parsons, Linc
Ins: Taylor, Menzel, Cocky, Guthrie and I have no idea who comes out for Henderson

Our small forwards just crumbled under Rich pressure, thankfully we still have Menzel and Cocky (if he can stay fit) to come back later in the year.

Just wasn’t our game for the forward line, hopefully we can re group over the break and have some luck in the second half of the year.
