It’s depressing when you think this is the year to get some of our new draftees playing and the top two picks are both long term injuries and the other two are playing for BH.
I really need to be able to hang onto something here
Burgoyne's 400th. I hope he kicks a goal in it too for icing on the cake (if we can't get the win).

But they hit up leading targets from HB to centre wing with some cohesion.

we spend 10 minutes going around in circles and not moving anywhere
yes their structures are substantially better at the moment, but what do you expect with a team that's been contending for 4 years

It is worrying that they have their 2 best big defenders out and our kpfs have looked pretty average.

However out connection between our mids and forwards is the main issue.

We just lack so much class and good skills in the mids.

Yeah it's hard to look any good when your teammates ahead of you are either kicking it into the clouds or kicking it to your opponent

I've enjoyed Jekas contests though. Seems to get his hands on most balls. Again the kicks haven't helped him out

I’m happy for Jeka that he’s got a taste at AFL level, but he’s had only one scoring shot from two games and no impact as a forward at all. He needs to go back to the VFL.
Yes which is disappointing but he’s shown he can dominate VFL. Needs to go back and do it again a little longer. Lewis solid today. It’s him and Kosi for now
