I can see the first quarter being a tough bruising style with the sides trying to gain the acendency on the inside with the contested possessions very important and we will see who stands up and then the final result.
Bombers will be fired up as it sounds like they are starting to play for the coaches future so interesting to see if the mids stand up
The bombers smalls will be important if they are to kick a winning score with Brown, Mckernan and maybe Hooker forward at stages I dont see the talls kicking enough to win the game on Davis, Taylor and Haynes where as the Giants forwards should be a handful if they can get the delivery they need although I still see it as a 50/50 game with the Bombers advantage at Marvel
Hopefully Hatley plays well and no injuries

Mumford will be important to set the tone in the mids and hopefully he carries on his form from his last game
Hill rewarded for his form with a spot as a emergency and with Stein an emergency it does show some doubt regarding Haynes IMO

Stein terribly stiff. As others have said maybe a late in.
son said much the same thing. my response was....

"hmmm, let me think.... Stein or Haynes.... Haynes or Stein.... I like Stein but c'mon, it's not really a contest is it?"

to which he thought about it and replied "yeah, fair enough"

also, noticed with the footage of the team at the airport - Bunts was the traveling emergency.

For the 7th game in a row I will say, we are such a frustrating team to watch sometimes

Bottom of the ladder team, away from home, you can almost guarantee that we are going to struggle

Having said that it doesn't feel like the Adelaide game yet, where it felt really poor. More like Essendon took their breaks and we missed ours.

That won't necessarily continue from quarter to quarter but if we keep spotting up Francis and Hurley and so on it'll be a long night.

That was very very bad. A defender, though beloved Captain, is the only 1 to kick a goal against this mob in a quarter of footy.

The only upside is we are only 2 goals down.

Langdon has a beautiful kick. That's his second goal assist from a perfectly weighted kick for a goal square mark.

Umpires obviously under instruction not to give any frees to the guys in orange.

Sorry folks. For mine, Nichols is working out which team he hates most at the moment.
Leaning towards hating on the orange.
