Which annoyed me why the coach(s) did not move Connor early in the quarter and give him midfield time then push fwd etc. CHANGE it UP!!!Hawthorn really targeted him early in the game. Pushing shoving, man-handling. It was a clear tactic to man-on-man rough up our young guys ... and it worked!
Yeah dunno. They’d still pick Walsh. Its naive to think Walsh doesn’t have many more levels to get toRozee rated as Pick #1 by Cornes ....
"But Cornes declared the Blues should’ve been more bold in their Pick 1 selection, saying Connor Rozee — who was eventually taken by Port Adelaide with Pick 5 and currently leads the club’s goalkicking after 11 rounds — would’ve been their ideal pick-up.
Asked on SEN’s Time On whether Carlton used Pick 1 on the wrong player, Cornes said: “Yes. I think it was the safe pick. In hindsight, 10 games in, I’d love to ask them (the Blues) honestly off the record, who would they pick now. (Personally), I’d pick Rozee now ... In hindsight, they’d pick (Connor) Rozee every day of the week right now.
“We make calls, it was good, safe pick. Is he going to win you games? No he’s not. “He doesn’t have the match-winning attributes to win games off his own boot, like a Connor Rozee can.”
I love Rozee. I love Walsh. I never care for these ‘should have drafted this player’ conversations when they’re both good players. As long as you drafted a gun. It’s only the misses when you don’t get a good player that I care about.
