Very proud of the team. If somebody would tell they will perform like this before season started I would be very happy. Last year Melbourne rubbished us 2x by 69 and 96 points.

Ultimately clearances lost it for us. And yes, some umpires calls were disgusting.

Swallow also enormous. Loved Weller being back too.

Our back 6 really holds on to grim death. I'm not convinced about Hombsch - but he suits our extremely conservative play.

Our back 6 did absolutely amazing job including Hombsh. Consider the number of entries they faced. If we were able to generate the same number we would had kill Melbourne.

Time for Bowes to live up to expectations. Last 3 full AFL games:

Bowes:
16 touches
19 touches
18 touches

Brodie:
28 touches
23 touches
21 touches

Bowes: 35 games
Brodie: 13 games

Why does Bowes, as a midfielder, continue to get games over Brodie? And yes he may be able to play different positions than Brodie but he is playing midfield, which is where Brodie plays?
We lost that game at the team selection table.
If Brodie play we win that one

Always dissapointing to go down but a lot of positives to take out of that game. Lukosius is starting to find his feet at afl level and Wright is getting better each week. King should get a game sooner rather than later. I watched the NEAFL game today and Brodie deserves a decent crack at afl level.

It's going to be interesting in the midfield now they have discovered McPherson is going to be a very handy mid.

Gee we play boring ugly footy and the poor crowd tonight just shows we need to change things up and let the players play some exciting footy
We play boring footy as you call it as we are a very young, learning side. It's a back to basics approach.

Why? So he can butcher it..

Kicking was a lot better
Just not getting enough of it at the moment IMO
Will be a player though
He is playing roughly 65% of game time in a team that struggles to get it forward. He works his ass off and honestly would be a 35 goal player in a team that rewards his leading patterns. Going to be a superstar
