The whole team seemed to finally be attuned to taps to advantage and kicks off the ground if it suited. Big difference from aiming to create stoppages. We are a three or four goal better side with this attitude as are Hawthorn and Richmond.Ha two or three that just didn't bounce for him as well, if they;d sat up he was away to hit a leading foward lace out tits high too.
Like both parts of your post. And to add the first part I have never understood the rancour over our trading and drafting in the relevant past. Can't be bothered doing research at this time of night but will post with instinct and crackled memory: Brown at 50-odd. Larkey at 70-odd. The Swans took Florent as the safer option, who I think we would have taken if Simpkin was gone. Simpkin has spades in upside. Ahern deal in return for GWS salary cap easement. Zurhaar in the rookie draft. Vickers, durdin, Dumont. Last year's trade period in starting to talk for itself and will hopefully be talked about as our flag builder.Loved last nights game. It was the first time in a long time I felt we got our identity back. It was great watching the boys putting their bodies on the line and playing in a spirit that is the epitome of our club. The boys played like the jumper meant something to them. I said this in the Ben Cunnington thread, we have a great team with plenty of talent. Dont fall for the they need to rebuild bs. I know many posters feel the same.
And wasn't it great to see players playing as if the shackles were off and playing on instinct. Brad was stubborn and believed in his game plan but unfortunately the game plan was to have players playing in a robotic style. How good was it to see Jy in a pack in the first qtr using his dancing feet to get out of trouble. If Brad was still coaching, Jy's first instinct would be to handball as the first option and generally it would have been to a flat footed player. I never understood why he just didn't let them play to their strengths. In saying that I am happy that RS is allowing that.
I believe LMac.Who was his opponent?? Genuinely shocked
