I want to be good again so we don't keep getting these Sunday games. They mean I'm in a terrible mood to start my week.
If we get Sunday games again next year so be it.

I bet you will be starting your week with a spring in your step many times next year.

Very few possessions but makes the most of his opportunities and is seldom outmarked.

I think he will get better in the second half of the year and hopefully get a full pre-season to set up for a big year in 2020.
Loved the play where he dished to Jack and then ran hard to put himself in between Jack and the Pies player chasing.

I expect GWS will come out desperate not to lose this game and eager to make a statement after last weekend

Their form hasn't been anywhere near as bad as the media are going on about - they're bloody 4th on the ladder and the only team this season to topple Geelong (in Geelong)

Combined with our injuries, de Boar tagging Cripps, this game is a real worry ...

GWS by 35

Big statement time here. If we can win this week and take a big scalp like the giants I believe that we will not finish in the bottom 3. I believe that if we win this week we will finish above the putrid club known as essendon.
be quite an achievement to finish above premiership favourites *............

This is weirdly the opportunity I’ve been hoping for. Jack HAS to play in the backline this week. Put him on Greene. Watch. Just watch.
no

:eek:
I don't want to see Silvagni in defence, yet. He is creating so many scoring opportunities at the moment through sheer will and football smarts.

Take him out and we are a 3-4 goal worse team offensively, IMO. Not even taking into consideration his synergy with Cuningham and their willingness to set the tone in terms of forward pressure.
A lot of his good work has been in a high-half forward role, which should overlap considerably with the 7th defender role.

Goddard, Weitering, Casboult and Marchbank in the same defence?

Bold strategy...
Unless there's a third player coming out that is a tall, I hate this plan.

Hi guys l thought you guys showed great fight last week and really took it up to the pies .Good luck this week.
Just a quick question do you guys think Stocker will stick around ? He looks a good young player.
We'll be a further two down in our defensive unit, so he almost certainly will be picked.

Yeah hawks did us no favours that’s for sure . They’re gonna come out firing but I feel we’ll hold sway. Interesting to see who plays on Toby G .
