Geelong, you kicked 2 goals that quarter now get your sh*t together. 100 point win is still achievable.

sh*t performance.

Might have cost us top four now too.

You can see how much no NN hurts us. No Shuey and Yeo hurt too as we couldnt get hold of the footy in midfield.

In fact no NN, Shuey, Yeo, Hurn, Cripps... not a great time to cop some injuries, I know every club has them too.

Need Geelong to do us a favour next week and then win our last two to make top four now.

Not sure it would matter. You’re WA downhill skiers.

Geelong should be flag favourites. A level above everyone at the moment.
Our true test is finals, in the past we just fall over. This weeks game should be a great contest, what I want to see from us is the ability to withstand Richmond’s pressure and see who stands up.

yep, and I can’t see any of our injured players coming back with any impact...maybe Grimes and Lambert as they’ve only been short lay offs...but the likes of Prestia and Ashbury have missed too much of the season and are too big a risk now. Even Shedda has no match practice, although hopefully being fresh might be ok for him

I think you’ll be up for it. You’re playing some good footy. If WCE beat St Kilda and we lose to you guys, I’d probably put a line through us. Can’t see us winning it from outside the four. This week’s results are huge for WCE, Richmond and Geelong.

Grimes has been ruled out for Geelong I believe. Lambert will be handy as long as he’s not tagged. Edwards and Prestia can make an impact. An unfit Prestia is an upgrade on Dow. He just has to play a role. There’s less reliance on him now with shortened quarters and Shai Bolton emerging as a very good midfielder. Don’t think Astbury gets back in.

We face a similar dilemma, Ablett and Selwood are currently out but they’re 100% going to come back in and we’ve been playing some great footy without them. Jenkins had a solid hit-out yesterday so now has a case, Tuohy also will come back, and Steven probably just edges into our best 22.

Good problem to have when you’re playing well, winning and have depth, tough job for the coaching staff though.

Yep we really need to win out now and Geelong to beat Richmond so we can climb back into the top 4. Then we'll be a chance from there. Our best can beat anyone.
