He's like GAZ a cereal sniper!
Hawkins and ablett are still trying to perfect the immaculate and graceful movement of the perfect extended forearm jab. They still have a long way to to be perfect like the goddess in the picture that they worship - LOL
Immaculate extension of the arm with the full force extending to the finger and the traditional geelong handbag used as part of the coverup.

Just stop messing around with our defensive six for a start. With Vlaus and Menadue in the back third, we've kept opposition teams to around 10 goals or less. We've only needed to bring in a first year player in Stack and a fringe AFL player in Menadue to do so. This group works well together where the experienced four allow the inexperienced two to do their jobs. Garth in and Vlaus into the mid breaks that cohesion. You only had to look at Stack's face when Astbury was outpositioned and outmarked to see that he didn't know where he was supposed to be in that passage of play.

After that, give Lynch some grunt support and let him play to his strengths. Townsend should be first in for that job. Next reward unselfish team orientated players rather than allowing flair half forwards their two or three magic moments in a game. And finally tackle. Against North, we were generally unwilling to do so and when we did, we were terrible in our execution. Balta's technique was horrendous. Not his fault, he and others just need to be properly coached in that regard.

Oh and am I the only one not surprised when Christian chose to ignore Marley Williams' chicken wing tackle on Higgins after giving Jack a week's rest. If there was any consistency, he should have offered Williams a similar suspension and let Williams take his case to the Tribunal. I've no doubt Christian is a decent human being but he makes appallingly inconsistent decisions. The worst bit is that he doesn't understand that he's doing so.

Yeah I get it, but the problem with what you just said was, even tho like you say we set up to lose, then why o why do we suck at it anyway? I do agree with getting a tagger in but we seem to not have one.
Think we are still in free flow mode.Need to go one on one and back ourselves into winning the contest.
Give Townsend a try at Tagging.Make 'em earnt it.

Would you pick him on a wing over Ellis? Reckon I might, on North form. It's only Brando's defensive efforts that get him ahead of Short, who is better on his left than Ellis is on his right.
Hmmm. Stack has already gone past both of them as a half back and McIntosh has got one wing sewn up...it's hard to say. I'd take Menadue over Short. He's faster, defends better and is a better kick. Short is a long kick. That's it. Ellis' running may give him the edge now, but once we're closer to full strength, will he still get a game?

our main issue is not kicking to Richmond players in space. We spend far too much time butchering the ball forward. Lynch isn't going to be used to his strengths and our ability to win the ball at ground level is well down on the last 2 years.

Against the Dogs Lynch had 5 dips, 3 marks no goals and was slammed by Lloyd, the following week against Freo had 15, 8 and 2 goals.

Against the n0rphs Lynch had 5 dips, 3 marks 1 goal and again criticised by Lloyd, hope it fires him up again against the Cats.
Hoping we bring towner in to help him out, its clear he needs it

- First time in analysed games where Prestia hasn't finished in the top 6 mids (at either club) without being injured during the match.
- Vlastuin & Edwards split duties: 11 of Vlastuin's 12 rotations were in Q1 & Q4, whilst all of Edwards's inside mid time was during the middle terms.
- First appearance for Stack in the midfield during an analysed game
- Caddy didn't get a start in the last quarter

I'd also like to see him in. With no Jack I've been dissapointed Caddy hasnt stepped up to the plate like Grimes has in Rances absence.
In fairness to Caddy, he's probably spending more time on the ball than usual. And just on Grimes, I wouldn't have thought it possible that he could raise his game any higher. Watch him get screwed out of AA selection again this year. Probably in favour of 3 flankers who get 25+ every week because they never have an opponent.
