The last couple of games the opposition has worked out that if they play a loose man in D50, we will always just bomb it in and be picked off by this loose man. I'm sure Essington will do the same, given its success. We need a plan B along the lines of - Hit up a tall if they have separation on their man, otherwise a chaos ball / grubber or kick to space may work better for us. Anything other than kicking it to their loose man. The forwards, whilst generally tall still need to find a way to pressure the defense and lock the ball in.

I’m predicted a free to Daniher very early in the game, for interference in a marking contest. Replay shows that his team mate was the one who pushed him.

Stevic and Nicholls umpiring. Lobb in the ruck. Our slow and tall forward line that was smashed last week unchanged from last week. I'm gonna need some serious self control tomorrow night. If Morrison is winning the election count I might not make it through.
Nicholls. Oh boy

If we have the mindset of against GWS, we win. But the last two weeks have been so defensive. Once that happens, our talls look slow and lumbering

The chaos ball would be fine if we had some speed in the forward half. Matera, Walters are elusive, skilled, but lack the lightening. Swita?
We will be better off in the next few years with the Academy boys, but a makeshift quick wouldn't go astray.

Still needs a couple of tweaks:
Bradley-Clarke-Colyer-Johnson-McPhee-McPhee-Solomon-Gumbleton-Delaney-Kickett-Ridley-Harvey-(Rioli-Woosha*) cup
*Woosha counts if we’re talking Souths boys.
Bradley-Clarke-Colyer-Johnson-McPhee-McPhee-Solomon-Gumbleton-Delaney-Kickett-Ridley-Harvey-(Rioli-Woosha-Dell'Olio*) cup
