The thing with Richmond, their forward press doesn't forgive crappy disposal out of the back half. To beat them you don't just need to turn up, you need a game plan tweak and you need your forward line clicking, as they will likely dominate inside 50s with their repeat entries, and our forwards won't get nearly as many opportunities as we did last week. Based on the amount of entries last week, we should really have kicked even more goals than we did - lucky we were accurate at least. This week the backline needs to tidy up their disposal under pressure, and our forwards need to convert. Midfield will break even I reckon.
They are professionals, they have moved on.it could get ugly if the players emotions are all over the place or it could be a close one
That’s right, I’d expect Thompson, Turner, LDU, Macmillan & LMC would want to play wellWho would you say is in that last chance saloon? And what will we find out about them that we don't already know?
At some point, we have to make a conscious decision to bring a few more of the young players in to give them experience and see what they have.
No you are not pushing it - but you are suggesting a Brownlow medalist from 2 years ago and a guy still in the elite bracket of AFL players when on song could be curbed by a guy who has never played an AFL game and rarely gets mentioned in the bests in the NMFC reserves. I think it's an interesting observation.I know it's pushing it, but now I think we should have given Kyron a shot on Dusty, he can't handle a tag, but stuff it I know why not
His ruckwork last week was first class. He'll have soldos measure for sure.If Goldy has the same input he did last week, pencil him in for 3 votes! Should destroy the game! Will be weary of their midfield as they will try and read goldy all day... more polly farmer-esque taps please Gold man
