He only played a half didn't he? Birch is at least a few more weeks away.Birchall needs one more week in the VFL to get his touch back. If he gets through the next game on Saturday against Casey then expect to see him play Round 16 vs Collingwood. It would be ironic if Scrimshaw also comes back in the same game. I would love to see how those two work together across half back.
Nice post.Did you see how wet it was at Box Hill on the weekend? No key forward would’ve thrived in those conditions.
All reports say that he was very good at crashing packs and getting his teammates involved so that is all you can ask from him given the conditions.
Also Roughy was completely gifted a game on the weekend and was shocking, so Lewis deserves every bit of the same treatment given how important he is to us moving forward.
That sort of sentiment will get you lynched around here but I agree, he's big, tackles hard and actually offers some movement up forward. Has a good enough aerobic base to present a target up the wing too.Might be too soon to see him again but I'd love to see Nash get a crack at AFL level footy again at some point this year. I get the feeling he's copping the VFL apprenticeship the same way Glass did, but I really like the idea of a tall 'small forward' who's hella aggressive in his tackling.
Actually kicking 5 goals these days is a moral victory. Or maybe even taking 5 marks inside 50? Okay, I've taken it too far there, but one can dream...I'll be travelling down the Hume for this game, come what may I'll be shouting myself hoarse barracking for our boys.
Within 5 goals will be a moral victory...
Your best post yet.Harry Jones is a guy I would have preferred see in last week over Morrison.
I think he's a guy with skills and athletic tools that translate better to the seniors than other young mids we have on our list. He's explosive, a good height, good in close and a very willing tackler.
It was a dangerous action, he didn't need to use excessive force to push guelfi over the line.Really hoping the Gov gets off, sad state of affairs if he gets a week for that and I care more about the state of the game than one of the oppositions best players missing a match against us at this point in time.
Schoey has spent most of the season injured.Any one think players have had there papers stamped.
Surely Miles has, as he has not got a game in about a year.
Thought he would of been a chance to get a game last week but we went tall down back
Schoenmakers would have to be as well, when is the last time he got a game
He averages 2 tackles a game and it is only that high because of 1 big game in round 1. Realistically that number needs to significantly increase to justify being selected for the defensive side of his game.That sort of sentiment will get you lynched around here but I agree, he's big, tackles hard and actually offers some movement up forward. Has a good enough aerobic base to present a target up the wing too.
More potential for serious injury caused by Gov than a Stratton pinch or Stratton/Sicily 'Stomp'Really hoping the Gov gets off, sad state of affairs if he gets a week for that and I care more about the state of the game than one of the oppositions best players missing a match against us at this point in time.
