I actually think the coaching needs a big tick. Look at the rampant wins sydney had in their first few rounds. They moved the ball fast and with freedom and really challenged teams. Look at how we are setting up our team defence this year. We are generally slowing the ball movement of other teams down really well and they don't get those fast forward entries. In the syndey game, the collingwood game and for 3/4 of the dogs game, we turned pace down and made it more of a contested game which is how we want to play (it is our strength regardless of what fans want to see). It is a credit to the coaching that we zone so fast and so well to shut that down.Zero excuses this weekend after the disastrous omni-shambles in this same fixture last year.
Time for Leon to out-coach Nicks.

Yeah, and depends if they stick with Buckley and/or Idun down back against the Crows talls.Probably means Ricca out
Maybe, who knows with Leon
I’m pretty sure one day Leon will have us lineup with 6 talls up front.Yeah, and depends if they stick with Buckley and/or Idun down back against the Crows talls.
May still send HH or ToJ back as already speculated here.
Adelaide were probably one tall, too many, as they ran out of legs against the Hawks. It will be an interesting selection.
Not upset haha, I just find it puzzling the role he’s been given to play, given his expertise and effectiveness through the middle and running hard up and down the wings.Always amused at all the Supercoach fans upset at where we play certain players or who who we play.
So thats a yes that he is upsetting your Supercoach.Not upset haha, I just find it puzzling the role he’s been given to play, given his expertise and effectiveness through the middle and running hard up and down the wings.
maybe they’re managing his load in games to get him through a full season? Even then he’s barely getting stints through the middle. Is it possible he may be looking at leaving so Cameron is prioritising the development of those that are staying?
regardless I find it a puzzling decision from LC/the coaching panel.
My guess would be stone and that will be the role Whitfield plays. HFF/wingSo, it would seem that Hogan is a certainty to come in, Whitfield is a likely, and Sam Reid is a possible.
Haynes is a definite out, XOH is still a possible out.
We could see 3 changes with all of Hogan, Whitfield & Reid in - that would be a transfusion of experience that I expect Leon would be delighted to have.
Possible outs of Riccardi, Haynes and either XOH or perhaps Stone.
And to be honest.... he is reliable and fulfils a need which is a lockdown small defender. I can absolutely see that as a possibility. Although because he missed through soft tissue... i would prefer a run in the VFL firstIf be surprised if Reid made it back this week.
he is playing high half forward and wing, with a bit of a inside midfield. We need his class on the outside as the inside mids we have are a bit limited there. He played a a very important role in both victories.Do you guys see Kelly role changing at all with Whitfield close to a return? Is Whitfield going to play HB, or still that wing/HF role do we think?
any insight as to why Kelly is stuck out on the HFF graveyard? As one of your best inside/outside mids it seems an extremely weird decision. People like Daniels and ward getting CBAs over a premier mid of the comp is such a strange tactic.... I’m guessing you guys are confused as most?
