You mean the 4 mins that are currently the difference in the game ?
Mate in previous years that 4 minutes would mean we lost by 10 goals. We are playing a premiership fancy on their home deck with one of our best mids out and been right in the game the whole game. Just missing the little bit of class but boys played fantastic

Played well against one of the toughest trips in footy, if sexton scrapes it past the post mightve been a different story. Much love boys, that was a different team

Once again outplayed by a team with none of the top 10 draft picks we have but let the excuses begin

I know I come across as negative but ffs the excuses are rubbish. We get out worked and before people get on me about the Eagles being too strong at home, this is a club we gave 4 x 2nd rounders only a few years ago as they were a likely wooden spooner. Since then they have won a premiership and we continue to tread water

How does Sam Day keep getting games? Honestly, it is beyond a joke.

Great first hit out against quality opponents. If we can build on this, we will have a good year

Had a crack. 3rd quarter we didn't capitalize on our entries...a few dropped marks and one that went up the other end for a goal. Combine that with the horrible start and thats the game...

Have to look at that as an opportunity lost. The boys did well in the heat, but just not quite good enough. A few key lapses the difference.

A lack of tall options at either end is going to limit us. King needs help and Ballard is still a 3rd tall, but we just don’t have any alternative options on the list which is frustrating.

On the plus side,
- Lukoisus is dangerous further up the ground.
- Spitta led from the front.
- Bowes is a gun.

Fingers crossed on Rowell.

Not really negative but Fact , could get Oscar Allen and other with those pick and still get Weller deal done with pick 2.

The first 3 mins were diabolical.

Markov crashed to earth. Hopefully, just nerves in his first game.

Another one who crashed was Budarick. Hopefully, second year blues.

Lemmens did a fabulous job on Ryan. So don’t even try to criticise him.

So Swallow is a liability? Time to apologise.

Great job Witts.

Dew you better be right about Rowell.

Time to get rid of bad taste in mouth and kill North. I will be there.
