It is worrying we have lost all our games by 40+ but its not like we are going out there full tilt with our best 22 getting pumped and our gameplan getting found out.

We have lost 2 of those at venues we cannot seem to win at and the other one we win more than we lose but i put it down to thinking we thought we had it in the bag. The Port game we went in to tall during a wet game which played straight into Ports hands from the get go.

We still have some tinkering to do once Nic Nat comes back because our ruck division has struggled since Lycett has gone and Vardy spudding it up. I do like we are using Darling to pinch hit in the forward line as it gets him into the game and seems to do well in the ruck.

My best 22 going forward once Barrass and Nic Nat are back:

Hurn Barrass Shep
Jetta JK Duggan

Redden Sheed Gaff

Pet Darling Cripps
Ryan JK Ryan

Ruck: Nic Nat Shuey Yeo

Bench: Hutchings, Cole, Hickey, Waterman

Geelong have Tigers 2018 written all over them IMO...
TBH Richmond were scary last year, they just tripped over. Geelong seem to keep coming up against teams that are struggling. They haven't really beaten an in-form team yet. At least richmond were banking convincing wins last season!

Richmond were pumped up without having been convincing - we smashed them over here but the media just dismissed it. I am similarly skeptical of Geelong, if we had their draw (same teams and same games home and away), I reckon we would also be top. Seriously, look at their draw, it has not been hard.

I'm pretty sure he's a fan too. Manages to be quite neutral in his columns.

But I think there's a bit of Eagles fan despair and hysteria in there. We're doing alright. Players are coming back. And if we turn it around, our fixture will place is well.
Yeah I think that's pretty much his point though. At the moment the numbers suggest we've probably outperformed or been able to find the premiership gear when it mattered. We can't carry that through the year so we do need to turn it around. It wouldn't be new territory for us. Our ground ball get differential was off the charts last year once finals arrived. Like the flick of a switch.
