True, but that's half the story.Of course it does. Come on, man.
We had a 3 gamer running with their best mid to try and curtail him. Our best mid was a 22yr old, with a tick over 50 games.
We had 2 key forwards with less than 7 games between them, our most offensive weapon from the back half is 13 games into his career.
We had very experienced defenders like Hartigan and Frost playing on their key KPF's in King (24 games) and Marshall (33 games), absolutely dwarfing them in experience. Throw TOB in there too who has played more games than both combined, though granted most have been up forward.
Our midfield included an experienced Brownlow medalist and a extremely experienced three-time premiership player.
Another three-time premiership player was brought in, apparently a bit underdone though, to bolster that forward line that already boasted having Breust.
In the end both teams had inexperienced and young players, hence the similarities in age/games played.
