A solid grop of games..if he fails to impact then we move on
I’d agree with that. His detractors keep using the lack of endurance, 55% game time etc (which is clearly his weakness) but seemingly fail to consider the impact he does have when on the ground. His touches in the first two games were very good. And impactful.

I think he gets marked very hard on an obvious weakness in his game compared to other players with different weaknesses that are largely overlooked.

Who would you select first in this team - Dahlhaus who’s given sfa or Constable who has admittedly endurance issues but can at least win his own footy and impact a game? That’s my point.
Wasn't there a concession that we had too many defenders by the coach..yet DHouse stays in... who is nothing but a forward defender..

Id say the MC ..do not rate his ability to cover ground. If Holmes plays well then thats another rung.




On Holmes ..I cant remember another player that I have seen so little of debuting for the club.

When was the last time a debutant played for us and cemented a spot in the team? We seem to have so many young guys in the system who aren't good enough to hold a spot. I hope Evans and Holmes change that.
Miers I think. I don't expect Holmes stays in as he's still developing but I reckon Evans is going to hold his

They play completely different positions so i dont see the comparison. Fwiw i would have kept Charlie in but i think its unsurprising on the bigger ground that we didnt.

When he eventually does debut Cooper Stephens will be the next least surely

What Scott says and what he does are often poles apart. I do applaud the Holmes selection but shake my head at others...
