Wicks and Rowbottom our best two by a fair margin. Giving the honours to Wicks for the first half just because I feel like his possessions have been more clean/impactful.

Some of the decision making leaving a lot to be desired. This game is winnable if we tidy some of that up!

Can't see where the match-winner is going to come from. No Rose or COR or Fox who have been our experienced NEAFL stalwarts when we've needed some, and this should be the situation where Ronke steps up, but looks miles off. Doubt the match-winner is going to come from Rowbottom or Wicks as impressive as they've been.

Nice start boys. Knoll gets a handball and converts in the goalsquare.

At his current rate of production, Ronke's first 3 months of football could become a truly outlandish outlier.

He is remembered for his 7 goals against Hawthorn but really his first 12 games were consistently good - with two big games against Hawthorn and North. But since that North game, his drop-off has been stunning.

Has done more in the first 5 minutes of this quarter than he did the whole first half.

Someone might have given him a bit of a spray...

Sometimes I think teams need to give away “professional” free kicks. In the centre then he was better off holding the ball up by being given for holding the ball but giving players a chance to get back rather than a rushed hand pass that resulted in a clean inside 50 entry and goal.

I thought with Rose out this would be Bell’s chance to really prove himself in the middle. Done the opposite

Not convinced he will be on the list next season. Just hasn’t improved enough.

Looks at Wicks improvement from last year to this full time in the system (architect of that goal just then too).
