They were mediocre, losing more players than away Guernsey changes they had in the 90s, had experienced tragedy unforeseen, he's done the best he could.Well Pyke took over a well performing team.
nah not when theres no connection being made that doesnt explicitly include hawkins in the definition. it a sentiment that could be badly phrased, sure, but it wasn’tI agree, but it is something I personally would still avoid as there would be many that wouldn't see it that way.
I think it is an underrated quality. How many times do you watch Port and think 'just one more goal' despite the score looking comfortable? Betts is that guy. He puts the nail in the coffin.10 of his 24 goals this year have come in the final quarter with the Crows either winning or losing by a significant margin.
He’s no longer much of a factor in terms of being able to impact a game with the result in the balance, regardless of opposition.
Or in the case of belting the Suns at home, 43 nails.I think it is an underrated quality. How many times do you watch Port and think 'just one more goal' despite the score looking comfortable? Betts is that guy. He puts the nail in the coffin.

Cam Faulkner as well. Jesus the media in this state are as weak as piss.lol - no pressure. Another one in the long line of Petrenkos, Gores, Sigginses etc. that have been dubbed by the Advertiser as the second coming of <insert generational player here>. You could probably name a whole 22-man team of them now and still have some that were unlucky to be left out.
Heard 2nd hand that a crows recruiter (McIntyre) had begged them to recruit this guy. Said he was the best junior he had seen play.Damien Barrett is someone who is always looking at everything being so serious, or so important or so dangerous.
But he is correct that Ratugolea makes Geelong a better side. The oppo has to stop 2 Gorilla forwards not one when he plays. Now his output isn't anything like Hawkins, but it means its harder to have 2 big defenders try and nullify Hawkins, jumping into him and defending against him, when Ratugolea is playing. He has missed the last 3 games and they have lost 2 of them and both times in their losses, Hawkins output has been below his season averages.
As the footy cliche goes, Ratugolea doesn't have to be a star player - he just has to play his role well.
Did they draft the right small forwards, or did they just surround the small forwards they drafted with quality talls in a proper structure that allows small forwards to play at their peak?West Coast sure did nail the right small forwards in recent times.
