I think henry was worse because at least WHE got a goal assist, both did more harm than good being on the field though. Have to wonder how much their opponents did while they were running in circles.
It’s all relative Kappa. I’m judging WHE more harshly because he should know better, do better, and he’s be paid a lot more than Henry. He knows how senior games play out, Henry doesn’t.

Like I said in my post last night, Henry has something to work with, which I don’t see in the likes of Ruscoe.

It probably was a mistake to play him. So why did we? Bucks knows the dangers of playing a kid who isn’t ready. He played Yagmoor in his first ever game as coach. What a disaster that was. He must have been more - desperate? - last night than we knew. Which in itself is scary.

Can't believe people are bagging him on his first game where he played forward and not even the great Tony Locket would kick goals in our side. If people want to see the end of players like WHE and Thomas, then that's why we recruited a forward, who actually has some good forward craft

the only player who was worse was Ruscoe
They were on par.

They stuck out like two blokes who just didn't look like senior footballers in their efforts at all. Which isn't a big surprise. Ruscoe's third real game of senior footy - including VFL, Henry's 1st.

Brockman looked right at home for the hawks.

Umm, i know we are a bit sh*t but Plugger kicked 110 goals in his first year (1995) at Sydney and they had won the last three spoons....

Read it again. He was accidentally correct.

Well we had a Ton of Players that was nothing close to good enough at AFL Level
Henry and Ruscoe were the only two who just looked like they didn’t belong out there. Low intensity and no second efforts. Didak wasn't ready in year 1, most aren't, it's not a big deal.

Not going to bag a kid on his first game, obviously has some talent but it’ll take time. sh*t he looked slow at times though, maybe a fitness thing.
