If Derksen played I didn't notice him.
45 Wade Derksen

10 disposals, 3 marks

Played a new role on the wing this week. It’ll take time to adjust and learn the new position but he ran hard to provide an option on the outside.

WTF? Can we just turn him into a ******* good KPF?

(I know we're probably trying to teach him how to lead by making him kick to our forwards blah blah blah, but still ... when we need forwards ... !!)

11.35 tomorrow out at Blacktown 3rd v 4th on the ladder although the Lions have a game in hand +2 points and significant % over the Giants and missing a few from the H + S protocols the Lions are facing
s**t scheduling again with the reserves playing in a different city than the AFL team surely they have another suitable oval in Canberra although likely due to broadcast $$s

11 listed players on the team sheet although could reduce with the emergencies for the Canberra game

Wasn't the previous rule that the score is set to 0?
The rule has always been that if the captain of the opposing team calls for a count during the game, the score is set to zero.

After Sydney had their 19 player incident they added the interchange marshals, and an additional case of "if the interchange marshal notices you, it's a free kick and a 50m" was added.

Looks like they now also do post-game review, and the penalty is as noted.

So basically the penalty depends on who notices it and when.

GWS up 24 - 14 in the first qtr.
Very physical, playing man on man as far as I can tell.
Getting smashed in the ruck and possessions, as expected, but very good energy and commitment from the boys.
Fleeton* and Aleer looking good. Hamilton in the middle. Brander decent but still can't hit a handball target.

*except when he gave away a goal

Now down 36 - 38 at half time. A bit of push and shove after the siren.
Smashed again in hit outs, possessions and i50s.
Ball was 80% in the Carlton forward 50.
Score could have been worse if they kicked straight.
One GWS player came off late with a leg injury.

The boys were understrength and undersized but fought it out 58 - 95.
Not much to glean from the game. Effort was there.
Aleer and Fleeton did good things under constant pressure.
I can see Aleer squeezing in a late game or 2.
Derksen I think was rucking for a lot of the game. He was ineffective as a fill in out of desperation.
Hamilton spent most of the game in the middle, did some good things, but not enough support.
Will Shaw did some nice things.
Brander would do something good, then back it up by turning the ball over. His best moment was slotting a 50m set shot at goal.

Good to get a few listed players back in so hopefully a bit more structure for the team and competitiveness although Swans are a experienced and strong team (18 listed players today I think) Giants with 12 listed players

Game is after the seniors so maybe a few stick around after the seniors and watch some and all the clubs support staff that are needed can be at the ground

Curtain raiser at Giants Stadium this morning
11 listed players named but 2 or 3 to come out for Taranto, medi-sub and seniors emergency
Bombers lower on the ladder but the wheels have fallen off at reserves level also so just hoping for a competitive hit out and no injuries

Stone back in, Academy prospect Madden to play ruck v listed Bomber Bryan (5 games and turns 21 later this year so it should be a good test)
