Do some people just not bother watching games anymore?

Scully was decent without being amazing and Stratton was very solid. If he can keep his direct opponent goalless most weeks he is more than welcome to stay in the team.

Both have deserved criticism at times this year, after this game is not one of them.

Scully was better i will give him that his gut running is more rewarded on the bigger ground, still some bizarre kicking choices at times.
Stratts has lifted his workrate and attack on the ball, The back 6 and role of a Lockdown defender is working better with Mcevoy up the ground.

No changes for mine unless sore bodies with a 10 day break everyone should be fine, the challenge will be getting up for the wce match and the next match, maybe they will switch a couple around on monday in anticipation.

Shorter quarters not assisting Scully either.

Both were definitely better against carlol and lets hope they are better against free. They are both important players to the side when playing their best but 1 game doesn't make a season. More improvement need but both stay in

With being out for so long one has to wonder if Howe would have the tank to play a tagging role on Fyfe. If he was to come I. That would definitely be his a role and would then allow Shiels to hunt the ball more.

While he could do bike work, you can’t do much running with PF. So likely he isn’t at peak fitness.

Not that it means anything but I woke up in a cold sweat at about 2am this morning having just dreamt that I opened the AFL app at half time of this match to find the scores were 70-10 Freo's way.

Most of my dreams are fun, but not this one.
