To me it looks like most of these guys are stuck in defensive mindset so when they get the ball they don’t want to play on and be the one who attacks and more than likely turn it over anyway

The other issue the game style at the start of the season was pressure and tackle create a turnover or stoppage or get the ball bomb it down the line bring it to ground for stoppage or out of bounds

Yes multiple players.
Go and ask a few yourself they are a great bunch of young men
I really hope there is a little bit more to our game than pure defence next year.
I get the whole idea to instil a bit of defensive responsibility but if you can't kick goals - and players aren't enjoying playing.. its hard to see how things turn around.

Dewy got a lot of work to do in the preseason. More list turnover and more guys in to help bring them up to speed.

I don't believe what I'm seeing at the moment is an accurate reflection of where the team is at. Lots of guys that should not be playing are playing. Other guys down on form. Others just cooked after doing so much early on in their career. Of the midfield, Swallow is the only guy that looks to have maintained some form. No surprises it's because he's probably our oldest head in the midfield.

Would love to see Bowes back playing fulltime mid. Seems to be stuck in the forward line or back flanks.

Baffles me why Hanley runs out of the square before he knows where he is going to kick it.
There has been about 5 occasions where he ends up going with option 5 after wandering out of the square.

Feel like this is Hanley's best game since coming back from injury, but still yeah - making a lot of mistakes.

Yes, more a comment on that particular aspect rather than his whole game.
Has been one of our better players..
