And we even managed to burn a couple that should have been taken. Cox sliding and WHE running uncontested toward the pocket from memory. If only our set shot conversion was better.Anyone blaming our forwards for this mess are crazy, we had more marks inside 50 than the hawks despite only going inside 50 on 35 occasions. (36 against North).
Cox dropped 3 absolute sodas. One even pinged off his chest.And we even managed to burn a couple that should have been taken. Cox sliding and WHE running uncontested toward the pocket from memory. If only our set shot conversion was better.
Is it me or does this always happen in footy in the closing moments of a close game when the team in front needs it? You know a big contested mark is going to be taken in those situations no matter who the player is. I had no doubt he would grab that.His mark on the wing on the kickout from the Eagle’s last behind was critical. Got us to a stoppage at mid-wing. We win that stoppage and get it to half-forward. The ball never goes back into our 50 again.
Not only that seemed to do a lot of ruck work against nic nat and held his ownVery solid game tonight.
Kicked his 3 goals plus was structrually very important.
Nice to see him rebound after a few poor performances.
I thought it interesting that there was reportedly some angst about the blocking Cox received. As if every other forward line doesn't do exactly the same thing.A few more I50’s tonight but yes we evidently put some more work into blocking for him and it paid off; for both Cox and Checkers.
