did anyone watch the game?
I just saw part of the last quarter.
St Kilda had significantly less possessions but won reasonably easily.

Playing a counter attacking game?

Not really - they pressured very well - caused NM to over handball and over use. Sweated on NM errors.
IMO worst game for skills played so far this weekend, and North were missing several key midfielders and key defenders. Saints pretty much at full strength (other than one's already known to out for round 1 ).

Should just try and smash it forward as far as he can at every centre bounce, because he sure can't tap it down to our mids' advantage.

After all preseason injuries, much less depth for round 1.

Here is my best 22 but I feel Dew will play GHS for experience/leadership replacing Lukosius/Ah Chee/Powell (difficult decision)?

FB: Harbrow Collins Murdoch
HB: Hanley Hombsh Ballard
C: Weller Miller Martin
HF: Sexton Wright Lukosius
F: Macpherson Burgess Ainsworth
FOLL: Witts Swallow Fiorini
INT: Bowes, Ah Chee, Powell, Miles

EMER: Day, GHS, Joyce, Brodie

I'd love to know where Dew sees Ah Chee's best position.
Kicked 10 in 3 games 2 years ago and has spent most of his time in defence since.
Only 7 disposals yesterday and seems wasted down back.

Dew seems like to use Ah Chee as a defender of small forwards for his speed I guess. But yes, I would like to see him forward too especially now when Lemmens and most probably Rankine are out.

According to Haines in GC Bulletin article, Suns are open to play Ah Chee both forward and in defence, at the moment leaning towards defence for his closing speed, kick, decision making. Haines also mentions a lot of small forwards compete for spots. Ah Chee had some niggles but did bulk of preseason and is in a very happy place off field according to Haines.

Serious question - Will Brodie seemed to finish off 2018 really well - how come no games in JLT and not best 22 for R1????
