Yesterday's match was dull enough that I ended up in a discussion about who on each team had the best and worst haircuts rather than about the game. Who's worse, Naughton or Smith? (I rate Khamis as our best, the short dreads look great.)

Just on Khamis - I know it’s not the best sample size 2020, but what are the thoughts on how he is tracking? ( Football wise , I’ll take the haircut being good as a given)
A couple of weeks ago Bev mentioned that there, "Aren't too many [players] we wouldn't give a game to...there are a couple that aren't ready." Only a guess, but Khamis (and potentially Sweet) were the only two I could really think of that might fit this. Anyone have any other ideas?

A few weeks back, maybe before round 2 Bev said something about Khamis being taken out of a training drill or match sim for 'continuity reasons' - or something like that. Sounds like he might not be understanding the structures and systems as well as he should be which is concerning.

Garcia would be the other obvious one, only because we drafted him with a knee issue. Apart from him, I'd think any of our players could realistically be fielded at some point this season. Not many left who haven't already debuted now that Butler, Cavarra, Weightman and Vandermeer have had a run

Forgot Garcia - Porter and Sweet are the others that haven't debuted off the top of my head. Could theoretically be Sweet but would be surprising to see him above Trengove as an emergency if that was the case. For Porter, I don't think it's that he's not ready or that we wouldn't play him - he's just not at the level of those above him.

I just hope Porter gets a chance before we delist him - I thought he was an absolute steal in his draft year given his potential upside, but figured his chances of making it were pretty slim. Just want to see whether he can prove himself over a couple of games.

Of course, if lists are trimmed down, it's midfielders we need to be disposing of and he'd be close to the 1st on the list unfortunately

Good to hear Lachie is being looked after and expected to be back in the team at some stage.

I heard there is going to be a hub in Cairns in August, three games played IIRC. I wonder if we will be going there.

Is PUNVEC a new sponsor? Just noticed it on Bev's shirt during the presser? Is the shirt design new as well?

They were signed last December:


If anyone has time, its well worth listening to Ameet and Peter's Drill Hall podcast on the club's website.

Ameet stated that 3-4 partners would be renewing in the next fortnight whilst remarkably Peter stated that the club would break even this year or only suffer a small loss or even make a small profit. Amazing given the circumstances.

Thanks, obviously I don't look at Bevo's shirts too much in his pressers!

I know there are quite a number competing for similar spots but does anyone know how Brad Lynch is travelling. This guy has AFL talent and can play. I have no idea why he has slipped down our list. Can anyone shed some light on where he is at.
Cheers
