There's not much connection around the clearances although it got a bit better towards half time, but these players hardly know each other from week to week.

Crowden out, Banfield back, Howlett and Valente in there today played less than a handful of WAFL league games between them this season, Meek rucking last week, Jones this week (contesting strongly) - and on top of not training with the other Peel players - it becomes a cobbled together team week by week depending on who is available. Must be a nightmare to coach.
Said this time and time again. We need to train the Peel lads together twice a week, need to invite them. At evenings as most players from Peel work.

Just too tall, too mobile, better organised, too classy. Simple as that. Really, really disappointed but still think Carter and Sturt need to play firsts

Exactly how it is.

I watched bits of that today and really only Banfield and Duman looked AFL Standard, with Jones looking okay at time (needs to do more around the ground).

Our first year guys don’t look ready but you can see the odd piece of play that excites.

Duman was probably the best, because he took some saving intercept marks and apart from the odd clanger used the ball well by foot

Banfield put himself in the contest in a way that measured up physically to the opposition and won contests, but didn't use the ball very well

Jones busted his guts out in the ruck but there probably wasn't many taps to advantage, even when he provided a bit of follow up work after the contest there didn't seem like the mids were all on the same page as to how to extract the ball.

Shultz tried hard and put some pressure around the midfield contests but it usually didn't amount to much other than a scrappy kick forward out of the contest or tying the ball up for another bounce.

Thought maybe they could have used O'Reilly or Dixon up forward, but I guess they had nowhere else to play the other big fellow up there Pigott - who looked a bit unco.

We need to train Dixon as a forward. He’s show a bit there.

I know they like multi skilling players, but at least develop them in their natural position first.
Same stuff as trying to train/develop Cox over the pre season as a CHB..
Thought we were over this KPF trialing out as a backman when they should be a forward ala Pavlich in the middle and Mcpharlin up forward
