Ambrose is still our best stopper, and the only suitable match-up for the KPF's with big tanks. Whether he's definite best-22 is debatable, but he'd likely be ahead of Francis and Gleeson defensively.Just a nitpick, but is Ambrose really best 22 anymore? I guess you could argue Hooker forward and Ambrose takes Gleeson’s spot, but if Daniher and Stringer are in, do we really play Hooker forward?
Scratch match report against the Doggies indicated that he didn’t play the full game but did manage a lot of minutes.He was almost ready before quarantining. He was also named on the extended bench. He was ready to play.
Led the pressure acts by a long way too. He is fringe but he is the good ordinary player you need filling the last four or five spots,Re watching the game and perhaps I was both under appreciated his game and mixing him up
With Devon Smith but Smelling was a bit better than I gave him credit for ant555.
Not a world beater and one we should be looking to upgrade but performs a role

True but in the third quarter alone, we had a number of scoring opportunities that we just stuffed up which wouldn’t be reflected in the scoring shot stats. NotablyHowever, let's not forget that:
- Adelaide lost two useful players mid-match;
- Adelaide are in a form trough;
- Adelaide generated more scoring shots; and
- Adelaide could have sealed a win in the final minute, if they hadn't rushed the opportunity.
Love the analogyFor all you people still complaining about how bad we were. We actually laid a season high amount of tackles across the whole league.
76 tackles - previous high was 74 by the Gold Coast when they beat Adelaide.
Yep we were average with ball in hand, as you’d expect when missing many off your top players.
But we won yesterday’s game purely based of effort and what we did without the ball.
It’s like a threesome with two people who are very ordinary to look at........ ‘not sexy but still pleasing’.

ROB towelled TBC around the ground (20 touches to 10) and had more hitouts and pressure than the useless glacier lummox.
they were down 2 and we were down 1 for pretty much the whole second half and they outran us but couldn't kick straight.
Irish deserves to be dropped for that ******* airy - RULE 1 pick up the ball
