That will put massive pressure on our midfield then. Elite midfields will tear us up.Ladhams will not beat the big strong upper body gorilla rucks in the AFL for several years. His strength is his athleticism.
Brisbane is also playing all of their Charity Match players. So there's a good chance they won't play much in the second half.Interesting note, Brisbane have only been using 22 players so far, whereas we've been using the full complement of 26. Might explain why we looked a bit fresher in Q2.
True. I'm tempering my reaction/criticism by trying to keep in mind that he's had a port forward jump into him when he has chosen to contest a mark and swirly conditions like described can play havoc on many a forward there hasn't been a whole lot of long distance marks taken by either team, especially contested.Marshall was great in the intraclub, awful today.
I dont reckon we were bullied out, just looked rusty, needed time to pick up the familiar positioning, movement etc aat game speed. Brisbane definitely havent gone at 100% this game.On radio Tredders and Timmy were saying in the first qtr that Lions bullied us out of the contests and dominated clearances and tackles. Have Port improved this 2nd quarter in those areas?
Sounds like Jonas is playing like the sole #1 at last. Hard and tough - good to hear!
Do people here think Ebert has [assed his best? Sad if true.
Rocky really is just an SANFL player these days and depth only at AFL level (probably has been for the past two years tbh).
Who have impressed you most today?
