They are pretty similar now in terms of output but IMO Marcus will go past Josh like he's standing still before the end of the H&A season, he's building nicely, will be a beast. Marcus has a lot more speed and agility and an ability to play on talls, mediums and smalls similar to Darcy Gardiner, having Harris, Darcy and Marcus in the back 6 gives us seriously fantastic flexibility match up wise.what does Adams brings that Walker doesnt? genuine question... think Walker adds more to the team TBH.
The other Lyons might be a good time to debut. Performing better than both Berry and Smith and for longer. Wouldn't mind Wooler having a go as well. Always liked what he brings. Think he needs to work on his aerobic capacity more but he could be the Lynch (Crows) for us.I reckon it's time to debut one of Smith or Berry. Perfect game to give either a shot.
Further to that if Linc needs a break then Cox up forward would be great to see.
Correct.Adams can play small. Walker can't.
Size Matters imo Lester isn't in the same class as Adams . He did a lot of things today that made a difference ,able to make up quick ground and defend strongly when they were on the loose. He's just finding his feet. Give him a little time ,spent most of the year injured.Lester can to and provides more than Adams IMO.
wow what a roller coaster!
I teared up a bit after the tackle by Dizzy, it was just the cherry on top of our amazing first half pressure. So proud of their work
Answerth tearing through packs such mongrel in him its awesome
Bailey using his speed to cut off a ground ball that looked like an easy doggies 50 entry
Bloody even Witho was doing the grunt work! it was awesome
Rayner, McCluggage and Berry as well to round out the youngsters. They were all terrific (in the first!)
Berry has really grown into the season. FINALLY!
That drop off was dissapointing, but not all unexpected (on the view that the doggies were butchering a lot of their stuff early on, once they got some more composure they sliced through us)
But we showed some real composure. Really happy for Hippy to take that responsibility and slot those two shots. A big shame CHristensen missed his one. But that won't detract from his really good night.
Andrews looked amazing all night, except for 2 1/2 moments. That body bump off by Naughton nice work by him, the one were he was covering two and went for the wrong one..eh and that kick out of defense which was a shocker. But I'm being extremely nit picky there!
Can't mention Andrews without DIZZY. Take that one tackle and you'd be elated, but his constant work for the whole bloody night was so so good. Loved it!
Robbo was on fire and was there with the special stuff.
McStay and Hippy worked really really hard in the first half. McStay in the last quarter had like 4 or 5 almost moments. Him and Big O got mixed a bit
Adams i thought was very nice too.
Honestly the only player who had an off night was probably McCarthy. Those missed shots, and then some *just* off handballs here and there. But it wasn't a shocker by any means.
Lyons was a bit quiet but he lifted late. As did Neale who single handedly (with some beautiful tap work with Stef) got us 2 goals.
Man that was a good win. Percentage .. meh the points are good for now.
and finally. Loved that shot of Fages waslking off giving a thumbs up to the crowd then high fiving them! He looked grumpy, but I think that is appropriate.
Yes,Beveridge’s press conference was the greatest bunch of sour grapes I have heard. Moan,moan,moan. Even said that the dogs had won three quarters,and we only won because of our first quarter when they kicked badly blah,blah. Last time I looked we actually won three quarters,not only was he wrong but a really sore loser. Disappointing effort from him.Correct.
I don't see where the love for Walker comes from . He can be a liability in the backline imo , just not hard enough in the contest, but admittedly would have been a shoe in in our team 2 or 3 years ago.
The opposition coaching pressers have been interesting particularly the last four weeks where they have a whinge about not taking opportunities , coulda,woulda ,and giving us begrudging praise in that we make the most of our own.
Jealousy's a curse.
He is 5 times the 1 on 1 defender Walker is. If we are looking for a backman, Adams is our man. Forward.. Walker.They are pretty similar now in terms of output but IMO Marcus will go past Josh like he's standing still before the end of the H&A season, he's building nicely, will be a beast. Marcus has a lot more speed and agility and an ability to play on talls, mediums and smalls similar to Darcy Gardiner, having Harris, Darcy and Marcus in the back 6 gives us seriously fantastic flexibility match up wise.
Adams can take contested marks down the wing, hard to out mark him and his physical presence. Did it a few times already in previous games.Lester can to and provides more than Adams IMO.
Hear what you're saying but to be brutally honest he had a off night it happens busted a gut nothing worked that's footyHe had 3 clangers . Cut him some slack ,he still did some good things and got into the right spot,sometimes these things happen.
He's been ultra consistent for the majority of the year.
They kicked same amount of points as we did we missed 5 or 6 sitters in second half.Just did enough.
Hope Zorks isnt too bad.
Luckily Bulldogs didnt kick straight.
Awesome for 3 quarters. Seemed to run out of puff at the end. A few might need a freshen up?
Charlie and Bundy were amazing.
Macrae and Bont can't both fit into the side, Bulldogs mids get 30 or 40+ on a weekly basis and it has very little to do with their overall performance. Of those players only Boak has been on the same level as Neale all season.Can see Kelly, MacRae, Bont, Fyfe, Boak, Dusty and Cripps making it.
He'd be a deserving all Australian but he's no certainty.
