Good win by the boys, but our disposal into the 50 was terrible. So many times kicked to a spot we didn't have a player within 5 meters, even when kicking under no pressure.
I think ROB did what he said he was going to do. He took a lot of marks down back and racked up a fair few disposals.How did everyone feel about the battle within a battle?
Dwayne mentioned it 37 times.
I also thought he was taking up a position more defensively rather than on the wing. Had to tell without being at the ground or having the tv coverage zoom out a bit more to see setups. And to be fair to the commentators they are not at the ground either so can only go off what the limited vision on tv gives them.Gaff played a sacrifice game to get out of the hit zone to get Kelly more of the ball very good team game
Also unimpressed with the lack of Liam love after that play!Positives:
+ Allen’s 3rd quarter
+ NN the best bloke in footy?
+ Cole, Nelson & Duggan solid again
+ Barrass getting back to his best
+ Intensity around the ball and attack on the man lifted again this week
+ Cripps starting to find some form
+ Ainsworth wasn’t trash and he’s put on a bit of size, unfortunately for him he’s out next week if Shuey gets up.
+ Sheppys ruggered new look with that jaw line
+ We’re coming home
- Eleni Glouftsis, if not for her Adelaide would have only kicked 2 goals for the game.
- Darling, almost looks disinterested. Didn’t like him not getting straight to Flyin’ afterthat tap back on the goal line which led to Darlings goal.
- Another Derwayne, Derm & Lewis commentated game.
- Gabba playing surface is too small for a GF
Hasnt played AFL since August 2019. Give him a few weeks.I'm surprised at the lack of talk re Cameron here.
I know he has loads of potential and is coming off a very limited preparation, but if we are being brutally honest he offered (in this match) less than Petch did in his games earlier in the year.
Maybe he gets 1 more just to see if he can get up to speed, otherwise I think a change (to allow him to build fitness) would be a good option.
I think he's the future, but definitely showed that he missed the preseason.

Yeah I did love how Gov has gone from fat pie eating campaigner who was sent away from preseason to leading the team out as captain.Positives: Gov is back baybee! Great game from Gov, obviously loved the responsibility of walking out as captain.
Gameplan with the defence pressing higher looks orders of magnitude better. Getting our small defenders way more involved and let's our small forwards play deeper.
Nelson played a great game. Hard edged, safe disposal and clean hands in close.
Kennedy is building. Accuracy a worry but the work rate is there.
Still battling for connection on our i50. Too kennedy/darling centric. Need to use smalls as short hit up targets when our 50 is flooded. We are undoing a tonne of good work with constant bombed i50. I think Duggan kicked 3 of them in about 90 seconds in the 4th quarter for example. Great set up to get repeat i50 but just wasted opportunity with bad kicking.
