Don’t know that I could point out anyone who didn’t pull his weight, Hartley especially stood up huge in Zerk’s absence. Long dished off a hospital handpass in the last, but he was decent overall.Sounds like a decent effort if we were down a couple on the bench
33 disposals (most on the ground), 8 tackles and 1 hit out...
tell your daughter that your internet friends need some attention now.There were some slippery conditions with a number of players slipping to the ground and handpassing on the way down. We could be accused of over-handballing on some occasions and looked pretty ordinary when we got into that style of play. The team was, however, a class above and this showed particularly in the first half. The run and spread was superior with the taller players having the better of their respective opponents for most of the day. Coburgs forwards got on top late, when the sting had gone out of the game, and evened up the score a little bit.
Some of the players:
Zerk Thatcher: Was on fire early, probably best on the first quarter. He was great at incept marking down back. In fact, he marked everything that came near him and was a wall that Coburg could not get past. He didn't return after his injury and was really nursing his hand and wrist area as we went up the race. He didn't play any further part in the game.
Mingma: Was busy all day, and getting a lot of the ball early.....
I will finish this in a bit, my daughter needs some attention.
Yes, he has been injured which has stifled his progress. He has developed a much bigger body for this year (this could be causing some injuries as he adjusts?) the attributes and contested work he provides mean he is worth persisting with.Does Mutch stay on the list next year?
