they don't play the same position though, howe is playing off the backline and pushing fwdCousins for Howe, especially after reading that report from Mitchell.
The irony of this situation is that Howe is normally a pretty reliable kick. He has other deficiencies - namely his clearance work and speed - but his kicking is pretty sound, it’s probably why he’s in the side over Cousins.At best he’s kicked to a contest. He doesn’t have the ability to make that kick. Similar case in the first quarter when he tried to get it inside 50 to McEvoy on his own. He didn’t have the length in the kick to get it over the Geelong player.
Howe started a lot of centre bounces on Monday on the wing.they don't play the same position though, howe is playing off the backline and pushing fwd
if you were making that change you'd have to push titch into that role but i think worpel has been far too poor to do that
The one thing I think he lacks to really improve out of sight is elite endurance, it would dramatically helps decision making and repeat efforts, exciting to see everyone improving thoughI've always liked the idea of Nash forward. Plays like a tall but can compete in the air because of his height. However, I think he can only really be beneficial if we have multiple talls up forward which would stretch the oppositions defense.
I wonder if “two rucks” clarko might be tempted to give reeves a go, resting one of big boy or ceglar? That would shake up the apple cart. He’s likely to persist with howe and worpel. Hopefully he lets us get a look at kosi playing against a mediocre defence rather than dropping after a baptism of fire. Mind you in the first half the KPF just didn’t bring it to ground - hodgey commentating was pretty scathing.Howe was more than handy this week but i agree with the other two selections whats more likely is cuz for worps
It’s a fantastic challenge for our boys. Freo are undermanned, but on their home patch they will never lie down. A 4 quarter effort is what’s required. Do that, and we win.One of the easiest wins this year coming up.
Fyfe is back apparently. This won't be easy.It’s a fantastic challenge for our boys. Freo are undermanned, but on their home patch they will never lie down. A 4 quarter effort is what’s required. Do that, and we win.
Trouble is we haven’t done it for a long, long time. Game could go either way.
