I don't know, the problem is it might seem like there is a high possession plan for 2/3rds of the total ground once we come out of defence. After it makes its way to the forward and then rebounds instantaneously, it isn't a high possession style of football at all. We lose the ball. We defend.

I think high possession requires north to hit targets from players making leads further up the ground.
I dont think we're seeing that, it looks like we're just streaming out of the backing.
The idea of the high possession game is that you play the ball around until you can get through the opposition zone - and then you break fast. If you want to see it played to perfection watch West Coast. Unfortunately we don't have the personnel to execute such a game plan.

This is all it will be for sure, when was the last time we made wholesale changes even on the back of losses in a row. We just dont have the cattle with the injuries we have. Zurhaar might get a go but other than Taylor for Hall which should be a lock not many other changes to happen I wouldnt have thought. Please dont put Tyson in on the back of that game in the VFL Please please and Please

agree dont expect many changes outside of injuries. Whilst Id like to see X get a game I don't think Campbell warrants making way. Scott needs some time in the VFL.

I was impressed you changed the template so Gibbo wasn't your first "out". 👍👍
Mahony is giving me flashbacks right now, I won’t lie. I keep telling myself he’s played 10 games.

But yes, simple formula, hit targets when you are in space, kick set shots when kickable and don’t be sh*t.
