Looking back on it we had 2 tough games against an out of the blocks gold coast and a top 4 dogs team....port beat up on the worst team in the comp and another that will probably finish bottom 8.

Feel for Shuey. BoG until that point. Assuming he'll miss a few... again.

Good to see Gaff back and getting his 30+.
Ryan may not get 20 possessions, but he's still the most watchable guy running around right now.
Best game from Brander.
Petruccelle was ok in the first half. Not so good in the second. Got a couple of bad umpiring decisions but also made some poor decisions.
Jones (who was good last week) was hardly sighted. New guys can't be good every week.

Looks like next week will be someone for Shuey. Probably XON after his WAFL game.
Only other changes possible might be the other two who did well in the WAFL. Winder for Petruccelle and/or Trew for Jones.
I wouldn't drop Jones after 1 bad game as thought he was very good last week. Young players can be a bit inconsistent early in their careers - by dropping them after 1 bad game only dents their confidence - eg Brander over the last couple of years.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate this photo.

Sexual Barrassment, back to his best in 2021.
Fantastic photo.


We let in too many easy goals. :(
Ahh they let a few through, mostly on turnovers which left us exposed considering how attacking the Eagles were playing. Port also kicked 9.2 after half time, so they weren’t missing many chances - just 15 scoring shots for the game though - only North Melbourne have had less (13).

Sexual is the main man down there these days, Gov's still good at the intercepts but Barrass gets the big forwards and usually does a good job.

Watching the replay now and just got to the bit where Dixon gets Shuey in the back and goes to the ump "You fall for it every time".

Clueless moron literally falls flat into his back.

Port are headfu**ed since THAT final.

Dixon is a crab & Port are full of his kind.
They truly are the SA Freo.

Since no one in the Vic media will acknowledge it, fantastic win by your lads against Port on the weekend.
Same to you, although slightly more acknowledgement, slightly miffed that you guys are on a run, considering our luck at the SCG when you weren't a top 4 side 😑 nevertheless, bring back the good old Indian pacific rivalry.

Smashing some froths and watching the replay.

Charlie Dixon just complained "you fall for it every time!" What, Chuck? When you lie on a players back it's called push in the back.

Ryan just took Mark of the year and didn't break a sweat.

Sheed sends one home from 55 and Cripps pulls one out of his arse from the pocket.
