Almost seems harsh to single anyone out. We have been poor across the field after halftime.

It does seem like we are too easy to stop with our ball movement just by clogging the field.

Hippys shocking shooting for goal has really hurt today but at least he is getting shots at goal. Mcstay, Cameron, McCarthy, rayner just had very little impact (Mcstay at least making a contest). Oscar no influence at all, Martin wasted a lot of taps.

Very poor day all round but hopefully the boys have learned something.

I think we have some ‘pretty’ footballers. Finals footy is contested footy and we are sooooooo far away it’s not funny because of them.
We monstered Sydney at contested footy last week and di the same to the Dogs in the first half.

I think that is an area we are showing good improvement in. Just need to do it more consistently. Hopefully Eli Smith comes on.

i know people going to complain about hipwood kicking.
Wet day 2 ruck who struggle to beat a make shift ruck meant we a small down all day. Then Bailey did hammy it was all down hill

Look at stats
Trengrove 22 disposals 27 hitouts
Martin 15 disposals 39 hitouts. Big O 8 disposals 17 hitouts. So 1 more touch out of 2 players vs 1.
We might win the hit outs although they win clearances 49 to 41.
It happens every week we drop Walker as too big although not sure we can play the 2 ruck who give us a combined disposal of one player.

It’s not like this season is our shot at a flag, we’ll have our good and bad moments, so far 5-3 after 8 rounds is a solid effort for a growing team.

Honestly consider next week a bigger game as we are at home against a Crows side that is inconsistent.

We are still 5-3 folks. Bad loss no doubt but no need to throw the toys out of the cot yet.

Frustrating to not be 6-2 but probably wouldn’t have been an accurate reflection of our position.
We'll be 5-6 after the bye. Been playing like **** since the Essendon game and were lucky to get easy games against the suns and Sydney to paper over the cracks.
