QA De Goey down is somewhat counteracted by an Elliott absolutely flying at the moment to be fair.
I think maybe it’s our bottom four that concern me most relative to this time last year but the roles Noble and Wills in particular are performing are critical.
They might have played the game out well but Collingwood was never in danger of losing. Collingwood protected their lead strongly. There’s no percentage in finals.Just in case, my question about ‘handbaggers’ wasn’t intended as a slight on them.
For sure a combination of things came into play which got them back in the game. Firstly two rotations down hurt us, secondly we changed our tempo and game style during the latter part of the game to get us home. But you’re right, they played the game out.
I am always a strong advocate for backing our team and coaching panel in. We win and lose a club and if we want to celebrate the good times together we shouldn’t pull out the pitchforks as you say during the bad times because inevitably they come at some stage.
