    Been really pleased with Kersten's output so far this season. He's proving to be a very good get IMO.

    Mcgovern, JJ, and matera all seem to be linked to use id be happy with any of these, but think mcgovern is the best of the lot.

    I think McGovern will most likely end up at the Eagles. We'll likely get Matera and JJ will stay at the dogs I think.

    Reckon we're a shoe for JJ and Mitch might come to us, but honestly do not want Matera. Will never forgive that shit-stain for trying to snipe Fyfe over here once.

    English already extended his draft contract by a year if i'm not mistaken. He's not going anywhere.

    McCarthy did the same. Regardless the club needs to be looking for another developing ruck.

    Egg on my face. Thought this bloke was a dud after the JLT. Another good game.

    McCarthy, Tabs and Kersten have played 2 games together, wait until they've played a season or two together!

    They kick accurately as well. 5.2 today.

    Gee, I really want 1 or 2 more small forwards to help them out, which will also release Walters further up the groun.

    Maybe, Ballas loses his feet a lot too

    We had a bit of trouble in the 4th with our guys going to ground and the Richmond players running off with it

    Yeah, have to say he's surprised me. Thought he had spud written all over him after the pre-season and the first few games.
    I think he's suited to our current forward set up with 2 taller targets.

    Spurr going to ground against Dusty in the last quarter infuriated me.
    Pretty complex game modern football.

    I thought ibbo outperform spurr in that area where he got the ball and fumble and later let Martin turn him inside out and pass to riedwolt

    I can safely say you aren't the only one who has that opinion.

    I dont see what's so 'untackleable' about Dusty... he doesn't shimmy yet people seem to slide off him though or just miss

    Pleasantly surprised by his development this past few weeks, hoping he has a few more levels to step up to

    Upper body strength. He just pushes people off him and puts them off balance when they try to tackle him. Gary Ablett Jnr is very good at it too.

    I never realised how good a contested marker this guy is. The fact he'll usually get the third defender (potentially 4th if Mundy is down there) is also good signs for us. Can't wait to see them gel over the season.

    He's had a terrible run with injury and always 4th or fifth choice forward at Cats. RTB shown faith to give him a good run of games which is bearing fruit. He's 23 into his 6 yr like his good mate Hamling and now both have the opportuny and confidence to strutt their stuff.

    I think Weller Langdon Blakely Tucker have gone past Sheridan crozier and definitely stutcliffe. Are these boys Sheridan & Croz trade bait to get JJ from doggies?

    He's got the best fend off I think I've seen!

    Seems players are going to hard at him which causes the tackler to lose his balance too easily.
    Obviously a fricken nightmare to try and tackle.

    I think he spoke really well and came across as very genuine.
