One would hope that even “just” a 3 goal loss would provide the kick in the backside needed, if it is needed, and if not that hopefully their pride has been dented enough that we can bounce back and really give it to another severely undermanned club.I want a flag.
For years I've been watching our field kicking slaughter us. It was back in spades this game. I'm really hoping it was a one off but i'm concerned. I don't know that a kick in the arse early in the season when we play that badly is necessarily a bad thing... in the greater scheme of things anyway. I know people won't agree.. that's cool.
I thought our kicking and skills appeared to have improved immeasurably last season so I’m still hoping (based on the way GWS also played this week) that a lot of it was due to the heavy conditions in our game against them.
Just confirmed on 3aw that Shiel, Caldwell and Draper are out for a good many weeks between them. Stating the obvious, but this is a must win game. Not too concerned about the percentage, just the 4 points.
