Interesting results round 1, just noticed in the neighbouring league that Yarrawonga has lost 2 guns for the year with injury before they played a game and are now very unlikely to play finals. Could wheeler head back to Seymour and take masters with him, they have plenty of spare points to fit him in

Harry Wheeler would only draw 1 or 2 points i imagine seeing how he's pretty much a local from the Seymour area. I wouldn't have any what he's thinking but not much point coming back down here if he's not playing footy as im pretty sure hes got work secured up that way, as that's what the main pre-requisite for him going up there was in the first place.

I think the deal that both Leigh Masters and Willie Wheeler both received was exceptional. Would be difficult to leave when it included a block of land and help building a house.

It's a pretty big deal, considering that Yarrawonga now have no chance of playing finals with wheeler out for the year, I'd imagine it would also be multi-yeardeal for house and land .
Would Yarra look at loaning them out for a year, to a club knowing they have to cleared back next year

Whatched the game again 2 weeks ago and am convinced Ash Holland’s dominance was crucial to Shepp winning that flag No difference to big Reevsys dominance in 2 of Kys recent flags, history shows a dominant ruckman on Deakin is a huge advantage

Many people agree wholeheartedly with this thought Swoopin’. Ruckman have won 4 BOGs in the last 5 grand finals there??? A good, strong, big ruckman or equivalent size player crucial on GF day at Deakin. You could even go back to the Grand Final when Mensch played for Mansfield against Ky. I believe he played CHF with the breeze and CHB against. Dominated the game.

Basically 2018 was decided by a feather touch by the ball to goal post very late in the game which cost ky the chance for 4 maybe 5 in a row
I'm confide we can win it this year
Also shepp played bloody well in 2018 and deserved their win
IMO

And let’s not forget the great Shane Schottners dominance for Seymour on Deakin

Interesting that everyone was writing off Seymour today. As I have stated they will be very competitive. Well coached and have an excellent group of players. Whilst they probably won’t be premiership material they will do ok in 2021.

Mansfield are in the same boat, written off but will not be the strugglers everyone thinks they will be.

Good starts to the year by both clubs.

Seymour had 2 VFL players out and one walk up starter missing from their side for the Echuca clash. But as stated, Echuca's outs well and truly out weigh Seymours. But nonetheless a great game for the lions. Still see them being highly dependant on their VFL boys which is danger signs for me as availability could prove inconsistent results for mine. I see them being competitive when they are full strength but dropping off significantly when players are chosen at VFL level.

Echuca on the other hand were well and truly no where near their potential and will only grow going forward. It's only round 1...... things will change... a lot!!!!

Im keeping a keen eye on the eagles.....

What's the key to beating ky silver? Fast and unpredictable, what's the old saying insanity is doing the same thing time and time again and expecting a different result. Hopefully teams start to realise if you do the same thing and same tactics against Ky that you have for the past 3 years, you'll get the same result. Too many coaches just try play the same way, nice to see Rochy daring to be different
I think 'Hilly and ringo are all over it!

I'm not a coach but I think speed on the ball, spread and carry is the key. You need to make Smith accountable as leaving him loose to intercept mark across half back means you lose. You need to at least break even in the ruck against Kyabram or you lose. You need several forward threats with at least one a realistic aerial threat capable of kicking multiple goals, or you lose.

Sounds easy hey ....

Another point about the Rochy v Kyabram clash Saturday was that Rochy had five young father/son's playing in Grant Fuller (debut), Gus Martin (not sure if it was his debut), and Adam Mcphee, Bailey Wileman and Blake Evans with a handful between them. The Tigers have a young 6'6 ruckman waiting in the wings with a foot injury. Big wraps on him according to locals who expect him to debut this year. Basketball pedigree with Bendigo Braves.

Any of those look like they could or will be better than their dad tongue

That’d be Jarrod Kyne??

Hard to be the son of Tank Mcphee and expect to be better Swoop, but Adam looks promising. Different player. Smaller, quick onballer, wingman type. Same for Isaiah Miller. Miller was solid on half back IMO.

Too early to say on the others although I suspect Blake Evans will become a very good senior player.

Great to see many father son combos playing tongue, it makes country footy, which is going to be harder for the next generation

Wouldn’t that be 6 father-sons with Isaiah Miller Silver?

O&M are being screwed over . AFLNEB not allowing them to gain a point of service for the non 2020 whilst most other competition in the state have been allowed , is ridiculous and merely is trying to use points system as a handicapping tool .

Agree. Players who signed with a club before covid in 2020 and have stayed on to play in 2021 should have dropped a point. I think the common sense approach has been applied to almost all bar the O&M league.

Not %100 sure but I'd doubt it mate. Unless you know someone from every home club and they happen to video it !!. Bendigo league r behind GV in a lot of ways but one thing that they do very well is garner the services of a mob called RED ONION which have 1 person video every game and the coach can have a USB in his hand minutes after the final siren, and can also be viewed on the league site.
Is there anyway of watching games online from the weekend?

Sounds similar to what the GV has done the last 4 years. Hopefully they do it again. Nothing on the website as of yet though.

It’s not uncommon that the additional point for year of service reduces a clubs total points by 10 + points .O&M clubs struggling to stay under the cap and being forced to play best 22 players in the twos merely due to a circumstance no one else has forced upon them is a joke . It also gives a really good indication of where the points introduction was born .
