What bothered me today was his lack of desperation.

This lack of desperation is a theme l also see in the senior side.
Was at Arden St yesterday & besides Walker, CJ, Kosi & maybe Cousins & Glass the cupboard looks fairly bare.
Harry M. had gone backwards fast.
That last Qtr was as insipid a performance a team in Brown & Gold has put in for a while.
Wont go into the miss from K. Brand 15 mtrs out to snatch us the game virtually right on the siren.
We'll need a mini- clean out at seasons end, as the're are a few there that aren't AFL standard level.

Who do you think is best placed to replace Birchall this week based on yesterday's form?
I guess it would be between CJ, Glass and Scrimshaw, although Scrim may need another game in the 2's after missing so much footy.

Did Scrimshaw play yesterday.? I see him as the long term replacement. Isn't CJ a rookie and would he have to be promoted before he can be selected?

Yep he played, not sure what percentage of the game though, wasn't in the best or highest possession winners.

Yeah CJ would have to be promoted, not sure exactly how that works, but assume that this can be done.

Brand playing as a key forward. He has 3 scoring shots in the first half for 2 goals. :think:

Finally playing in his correct position. Has the penny dropped?
If only someone could have somehow foreseen this... :rolleyes:

BOX HILL HAWKS

Best Players: M. Walker, J. Cousins, J. Roughead, L. Walker, M. Pittonet, L. Meadows

A dreadful performance in the last quarter plus the first 3 goals kicked by NM were the result of terrible turnovers. The only real positive was Mat Walker's 4 goals from strong marking. He is an exciting prospect. In addition to the best players above Mascitti, Mirra and Scrimshaw were good in defense and Andrew Moore and Glass worked hard in the midfield. I think our inability to kick a winning score is the result of more emphasis being placed on our forwards locking the ball in as distinct from winning the ball. I'd hate to play in our "forward line" which is either devoid of players or congested.

Jesus that's a diabolical loss by us, 31 points up after 3 only conceding 5 goals to that point, then you go on to lose.
