Fiorini copped a heavy tag from Hutchings. Great experience for him to deal with that.
How embarrassing for Hutchings, having to tag a guy in his fourth year that's barely played 50 games. Can he just not play without tagging anyone?

i'd put less emphasis on hutchings and more credit to fiorini for deserving the tag in the first place.

He still got 20 possessions and never gave up, unlike Aaron Hall getting tagged by a 15 year old in his 2nd game last year and throwing the towel in. Agreed, for teams to target him after only 32 games is a credit to him.

Hahhahaha , yup I am , every single week people want changes in line up for the sake of it , why not play along. GHS got to come in because he is experienced and bigger body , another week GHS is slow and done nothing replace him with somebody else .Young 10 disposal two tackle and a behind and you keep saying he is a scoring machine .
Haha.
Righto.
You were the one that said young would kick 2-3 goals first quarter and then one in the second.

I put up his stats from last year. About one goal a game.

I can live with some honorable losses after the last couple of years
Oh for sure.
Definite signs of progress.
Once rankine is hunting the packs and lukosius has another few years and kgs under his belt scoring will come easier!
Learning a good defensive basis is critical - we’re not that easy to score against.

You mentioned he is a scoring machine and score four goal against Sydney and I said he is those type that can score two -4 goal and then end up doing nothing .You don't mention a player scoring 4 goal and then twisted you own word into scoring 1 goal /AVG .

Just looking at the stats
Positives
- centre clearances 10-5
- inside 50s almost even
- Corbett 4 contested marks, Wright 2.
- 4 goals from the midfielders - need more of this.
- Wright, third consecutive game with multiple goals.

Negatives
- tackle count 56-87, got smashed. 7 players with 1 or less tackles. Alex sexton with 0 tackles again. Not good enough for a small / mid sized forward.
- GHS bad game by the looks.

Love Corbett and it's not just because of his marking. His workrate to get so high up the ground and his defensive transition stuff is really good for a player of his type. Runs extremely hard in defence and to put pressure on. Love it.

Have we got a better set shot in the team than Powell? When he's 30 out I have no doubt it's going in.
It’s no wonder our big forwards can’t kick goals or keep the ball inside our forward 50.
I think it’s because they are being ask to do to much unnecessary running and defending higher up the ground.
Then when we win the ball we have no one to kick it to in our forward 50 or if we do they are so exhausted they can’t compeat.

I few people wanted Burgees dropped after 5 games because they didn’t think he could cover the ground well enough but in reality he was in the top 5 for Total ground covered in 4 out of the 5 games he played.

No wonder Corbett and 2MP missed some easy goals last night.
They were exhausted from the unnecessary running they are asked to do

Nick Riewoldt made a career from outrunning his defenders
It's plan A for most power forwards these days

Whose working with 2MP with his forward craft.

His hands are like 2 blocks of concrete.
So hard the ball just goes whack and the opponents run off into the distance.

Then when he on a nice little lead he attempts chest marks and again ball bounces off his chest.

Wright could take 10 contested marks a game if he didn’t drop them all

Would atleast double his scoring output too.

Does all the hard work then makes a mess of the supposed easier skill.

If wright had Corbett’s or burgess marking ability.
Would kick 6goals a game!

2mp missed a lot of easy marks too

I think he’s not coping with being second ruck and key forward

What people think of holmans game?
I saw he was mentioned as no impact on game.

14 touches at 86% only 1 turnover.
1 goal
2 goal assists
5 score involvements
5 tackles,3 inside 50.

Seems like a decent small / mid forward game.

Holman still on rookie list too. He deserved two year contract extension . The worse case scenario provide leadership to NEAFL team .

I said he was one who had done sweet fa up to half time - only had 5 touches to half time so lifted with the team in the 2nd half.

To half time GHS had 1 touch, Sexton 3, Young 5

Nothing irks me much more is when the ball is being run out of our backline and 2MP puts in his effort to chase out of the backline. I understand acceleration is not his strong suit but he isn't catching anyone unless they leave the ball behind.

For the record I saw this as our second mini GF for the year in terms of the top 8 dream.
A miracle win and we continue to dream.
Unfortunately there is a rule in Perth which is Boooooo = Free Kick. The big issue though is what we aren’t given.
The 2nd quarter was disappointing no doubt but with a fair rub of the green it could have been our most famous ever win.
We now focus on other things in 2019 as our goals.
When our players believe and take the game on we are really good.

Unfortunately Bods it’s been happening over there since cocky was an egg.
Eagles have won the free kick count 64 out of their last 76 games at home.
Kennedy studs up, no free.
Yeo slings Holman to the ground twice- no free.
The free kick against Ballard in front of goal was comical. The list goes on but it’s now accepted they receive an armchair ride on the back of their constant booing. Ex AFL umpire advisor raised it one year but this fell on deaf ears at AFL HQ unfortunately.

We all move on, pack up, get out of Dodge City happy not to be tarred and feathered and give a knowing wink to the next team coming through arrivals at Perth
They win 2 or 3 matches a year at home on the back of that free differental whether the AFL admits it publicly or not
And still the WCE BigFooty nuffies moan about the umpiring

Just watched the second half after missing it on the weekend. Was expecting a 100 point loss. Will be great when we consistently start to play like that for four quarters.
Loved it when Hurn got the shits and retaliated after DMac tackled him over the boundary line. Benny and Touk just charged in to back up their mate. That comradeship will keep us in good stead in the future when we start to mature and play better as team.

Fiorini only played 35 games I think.
Impressive player already.
