Attrition.As an old full back I can tell you how hard it is to hold on when the ball is just coming in relentlessly!
Not when you’re setting an extra behind the ball in Davis. You can just pick them off.
They only kicked it once on the lead that king dropped.
You can’t play high level football like that.

It only takes one mistake and the law of averages says it will happen if you have enough inside 50's

Woohoo

As Touk said
To get 8 points from that Melbourne trip is unbeleivable


Best case outcome
Get away with a win today despite making some critical mistakes.
Lots to learn from that game.

Umpired by Eleni Glouftis and Matthew Nicholls
Officially the worst 2 umpires in the league
No argument there
You wonder if Michael Jennings takes a valium and holds his head in his hands when he does their Monday reviews
"So Eleni-that throwing the ball against Ben King.Let's talk about it"

Agree that the umpiring was terrible both ways, definitely. But we got away with a few calls throughout the day that would normally be called IMO. But hey, that's footy. Sometimes they go for you sometimes they don't.

Giants had 5 more scoring shots. Their inability to kick straight is the reason they lost - not the umpiring.

Gutsy win, losing Greenwood sucks, Brodie has to get a go now.

I don’t know what we have done to Rowell but he is a shadow of who he was ATM.

We found a way and over the journey , most of the time, we haven't

We have had zero good luck for a decade even today the bad luck monster tried to get us but the boys stood tall. Very impressed. Something has sunk in.
