The youth are so exciting. I wouldn’t say any of them were outstanding, but all had their moments. All contributed. No secret to say I fell out of love with the AFC after years of crazy decisions off field and at the selection table, but I am falling back in love. All I wanted was for the youth to get games, and to be backed, and it is happening. Good on you Nicks!! Actually leading us through a rebuild!
Tex is playing the best footy I’ve seen him play since 2012, it’s remarkable. Sloane too was immense tonight, and really dragged his home.
Keays was sensational. 26 touches at 88%, huge.
Butts’ last quarter was MASSIVE. Enough said.
Guys like Lynch and Frampton should be nudged out soon enough. A few others not far behind them, but they’re the first two out for mine.
Couldn’t be happier with the direction we are taking.
Tex - He's in rare form at the moment, the roos have kicked 18 goals this season, Tex is on 17...
Sloane - Huge game from the skip. 11 clearances and 20 contested disposals
Seeds - really good game from the second quarter onwards
Kelly - Before he was concussed by 92kgs of salt the other week I thought he was playing really well, continued on this week with some un-Kelly like composure
Smith - Seemingly hit everything at full pace, 776 metres gained
Berry, Berg, Sholl, Butts- all worked into it as the game went on, some really high quality efforts from all of them in the last quarter
im gonna say it... Ned Mchenry was ******* huuuuuge in that last quarter, pretty much the reason we won it.. two massive efforts that both resulted in the last two goals.. fierce at the contest, tackling like a maniac and put on some absolutely awesome pressure.
and... Geez we scored getting Ben Keays for essentially nothing.
brilliant team effort all round really.. cant really fault anyone.. maybe seed did a few sh*t things but meh, gotta have some things go wrong, cant have it all go your way.
