Yep, I agree. I was strongly critical of that decision, but Mummy was primed for the role, and did it well. Well done, Leon, a well judged and coached ''in''.Credit where credit is due, they made the right decision with Mumford. He nullified Grundy tonight and there were a few occasions where he protected the mids very well. He did what he needed to do.
Keefe for his size and Haynes will need to be the 2nd man upSuddenly, I'm looking forward to next week at the SCG.
If we play with the same commitment shown last night, we can definitely cause an upset.
But with Davis out, who plays on Buddy? That's the big challenge.
Can actually see minimum 3 changes for next week, which is odd when you winnext week - OUT: Buntine
I think hogan comes in maybe for riccardi. You can’t drop HH and TOJ after last night and hogan just needs to playAgreed on sentiments of XOH. His stats are far from impressive (11 disposals, 2 tackles) but watching the game you'd think he had 10 tackle breaks, 10 tackles... he did a lot 1%ers. I think he's really starting to find his role within the team.
Stone showed some glimpses of promise, there was a moment in the first half where he dared to take the game on. He ended up drawing in three defenders and having to retreat from him but I liked the attitude and thought if he had a bit more experience at top level, he may have pulled it off.
We're a far more balanced side with three talls in the forward line. It's hard to see who Hogan comes in for between Finlayson, Riccardi and Himmelberg tbh.
