Already beaten both Port and Tigers, should have beaten the Lions, snagged the Pies before they shot themselves in the foot, but account for them comfortably, West Coast are thinking of resting peeps against the mob they can literally lose a position to, smart lot that, only real bump in the roads is the cats since they view us as a threat whilst the others seem to give no shits.
Always doable, especially this season and as it has gone on where you also don't know what GWS, Melb, Dogs, Tigs shows up, even Brissie are prone to straight shitting the bed randomly, 4/5 of your opposition might not show up for a match is a decent run.
Of course, first step is accounting for the smart lot wanting to give up 5th.
Two expected changes for us but Hind for Phillips was a bit surprising to me. We generally seem to be getting a bit more output from Phillips, but I'm guessing thinking we might see a different role for Hind this week... Might be playing to the conditions.
With the weather they're meant to be getting, and the state of the West Coast team, we really have to take our chance this week.
So from the night at Moorabbin in the preseason to the next 2 games what an amazing season by our club. Record membership in a season where our heartland couldn't go to a game. Embedding in a new coach and new players. Remember back to 2007 and a new coach with a side that had a much greater level of experience took a season to get every on board and we missed finals.
Best of luck to the boys, they'll have that record membership right behind them so hope that gives the extra bit of run in the legs to get them home.
Not long now. Conflicted feelings about this one and really not sure what to expect. In for the right and hoping for a good result to lock in finals, because waiting another week for our final chance decider is going to take a toll on me.
Very good quarter. A big guy for them got their goals but both on leads so height wasn’t the issue. Ryder and Marshall fantastic but so was Nat. Need to stop kelly. They have no one else. Lonie fantastic as well.
