They’ve used the wind better. We keep trying to get too deep on the entry. Should pepper the goals from 40-50 out.

The umpire in the black shoes should be umpiring local d grade reverses. Absolutely terrible

I only watched the 3rd quarter and kept a very close eye on him. He seemed to sit out the back of a lot of contests without a man. Didn’t see him deep in defence much. I liked what I saw tho

Didn’t concede a goal from memory, (maybe could have stopped Cahills second) but that isn’t to say he might have lost someone in transition. As we gave up most our scores from turnover and transition.

Didn’t appear to be close checking anyone in defence as he spent a lot of the day in that McGrath role pushing up as a stoppage sweeper, which he did well. Don’t remember anyone getting out when they shouldn’t have. Only in the last did he appear to play tight on Motlop which he won a few key one on ones.
