JMac, Pits, Ats had poor games, but I can't see them being dropped. Don't really have many who could replace them.

We've kicked 56, 80, 60. Clearly we need to score more, so how about bringing in blokes who can, you know, kick goals. Xerri or Mahony for me, for Wood.

Out: Ahern, Bonar, Hall
In: Williams, Cunners, Scott

Hayden gets one more chance.
Azza was alright on the wing / half forward. His 3 behinds hurt us, but for the most part he was ok and played his role. I'd be ok to give him another game to get some continuity and build confidence.

He was amongst our top tacklers today. Ahern and Taylor both had 0. Our intensity was down today so it’ll be telling which way Shaw goes on that
Only 4 tackles for Bon, which isn't huge.
He really should have been on the ball for the whole game. Playing him out of the square wasn't the right move

He just doesn’t do enough. Flashes in and out.

Not a reliable contributor and at 29 having played 150 games, he’s not going to change.

He contributed more than most out there today.

I didn't mind him having those long range shots on the run, it's a big part of why we recruited him. And the Swans defenders weren't giving Brown and Wood much room to work in.

Nah it’s not huge at all but our highest was 5. The fact he did it without playing in the midfield just makes it more of an indictment on the others. Our missed opportunities were bad but our lack of forward pressure was what lost us the game. At no stage did we lock it in our forward half after kicking a behind.
