It's a really big call to put Jy in there

I was all for it but his lull over the latter part of the year probably signifies he has still. Bit to go in the consistency area.

Taz or Higgo for a year.

I don't think it can stay with Jack as.much as he's a warrior for us.
I thought when he did the pre game interview on Fox that it might be the plan for next year. And boy does he speak well.

His body & mind might be in Perth, but his heart still resides at Arden Street.

It's a pity his body and mind are over there.

It is a great shame he is not our coach.

No disrespect to Rhyce, but Simmo being a successful coach at North would be something.

A frustrating end to a frustrating year for you guys… I thought you were all over west coast for big chunks and should have been 4-5 goals up at quarter time which would have been enough.

The bias in umpiring was as blatant as I can remember seeing, I was foaming and I don't even barrack for north!

It's a shame that teams need to be around 30% better than west coast to get a win when you factor in the advantage they are given.

Hope you jag a gun with your early pick and next year have a little more luck with injuries. :thumbsu:

A better performance as it was, unfortunately I think it shows that the team can only be competitive when there's no pressure to do well. ie new coach,last game of the year.

But it also means that last night shows that the players care about their performance. I don't think many would have been surprised if we lost that game by 60+ points with the players minds thinking about the off-season.

Even though last night and shades of 2019 are very much blue collar and simple in its approach. That needs to be the standard in all games next year. Only then can you make improvements, implement game strategies.
