He wasn't on his Pat Malone, particularly in the first quarter when the damage was done.I just watched the replay, having been at the ground. I was a bit surprised watching it back we were a bit better than I thought on the night. Collingwood were certainly harder at it across the board and had more contribution from more players, but I wonder how things would have gone had Miers, Hawkins and Rohan kicked those sitters. It would be difficult to see Kolo play worse, or have that many incidents leading to goals.
Ablett really let himself down with Maynard in the 2nd quarter, a couple of poor efforts and lack of chasing. And Gaz fumbled for most of the night too.
Danger was better than I thought watching back too, it was a great performance from him, bar a couple of poor kicks, but without him we would have been miles off it. Selwood wasn’t as bad as some are saying.
I’m feeling a bit better about our prospects on Friday. I’d love us to get a crack at Richmond.
Bews our "premier" stopper was hauled over the coals again. Unsurprisingly Elliot thrived in his match up with Jed and helped himself to two goals in the first quarter. Elliot ended up with 18 disposals (Jed had 8) and was the Pies most damaging forward.
