One thing I think you can say this year is that the debutants while being elevated often due to injuries have stayed due to form and played a lot more.

Last year we had

Brown 5
Daicos 2
Kirby 1

so only 8 games between them

And generally those were not convincing performances anyway.

This year it's (to date)

Stephenson 13
Murray 9
Appleby 7
Mihocek 3

With 3 of those playing on merit on the weekend, and now Sier gets a chance.

We have been very fortunate as the drop off/unavailability of the likes of Wells, Varcoe, Reid, Elliott has been compensated admirably so far. When more fancied players return, even then its probably the likes of Mayne, Greenwood I'd be dropping, and we havent reached for the Blair break glass option too often so there is more there for the future.

Just so I wont be labelled a neighsayer.
yeah I think not having to use Blairy yet is a good sign of our injuries still not being catastrophic, since despite the abusers he is a very solid and reliable role player.

Don't forget Henry Schade but lucky you have a better player in Matthew Scharenberg starring. You must be excited and overwhelmed that collingwood have two bright future stars in the making in Brayden and Mathew to watch over many years to come.
We will see. I doubt Sier will make it. I’ll be shocked if he plays 100 games with us.?

Big difference between a debutant and a debutant thats been in the system for 3 years, as such I'm feeling optimistic about this one. Hes had the chance to train at the top level, learn the system and familiarise himself with the expectations of an AFL player. Don't forget he was always recruited with the purpose of being a long term development project and now we're able to see if his efforts are going to bear fruit.

Been living overseas this year so haven't watched any VFL games, but I keep hearing about this guy. Can't wait to see him tonight!

Great to see him turn the corner and get his opportunity.
He has been very promising in the twos.

Not a very nice thing to say TG. Have a bit of faith and you maybe pleasant surprised.

It's a massive coincidence that we get on a roll and THATSGOLD is nowhere to be seen.

Every week he's hoping & praying for a Pies loss so he can go full troll mode.

Poor bugger has been waiting weeks and he just has to scratch that itch.

Your lack of ability to read the game and poor understanding of our great club never cease to amaze me


Sent from my Warped mind
I read all that as 'you truly are a clueless flog TG' but maybe it's not what you meant and I have that wrong.....

Good movement in traffic. Wins it in dangerous positions. Good for a clearance. Kicking astray but he's picking up the pace of the game. Need to accomodate for that in our assessments of his performance. He's been alright so far but needs to carry on with it over 4 quarters.
