He was told to be not so honest. welcome to press conference 101.
I’m hoping in time we have the measure of good teams.
Best result for us by a country mileHe was told to be not so honest. welcome to press conference 101.
A great result for us today, beating the Blues would have given us nothing. But to lose with McKay doing well Larkey being up and about. Hayden showing a bit and Scott kicking 3 , all up a good day at the office.
He completely avoided the question about Polec on Cripps. Waffled on about other stuff like a good politician.
They had their gun forwards in McKay and Curnow missing, and Gov on the bench (and they still kicked a winning score).A better balanced side than we’ve had in previous weeks.
A few underdone players who needed the run.
A few brain fades away from a win.
I came from watching the game thinking “we would smash this Carlton team with our full lineup fit and firing” so not overly pissed off.
This whole year’s fkd in so many ways so my eyes are on 2021 and beyond.
They've had a settled side the whole year. We've lost a 173 games through injury - the most by far thisbyear. It was a good team this weak but lets face it they havent played all season together, on top of not being able to train together. Then the guys who have played have been beat up for six weeks playing in a weak side that loses players in game to injuries every week.They had their gun forwards in McKay and Curnow missing, and Gov on the bench (and they still kicked a winning score).
They also had their first ruck in Kreuzer missing.
That's a good point - for the most part we all thought Scott was far too unwilling to do this.I like the fact he's trying players in different positions, regardless of how successful the move is, if you don't try you'll never know.
Keep the experimenting going I say for the rest of the year.
Even still yesterday he had presence about himself whenever he was in the actionI’d suggest as others have intimated that LDU wasn’t ready for the midfield . We just wanted to get some game time into him .
if you don’t think we see him as a mid in the future ya crackers .
Brayshaw playing good footy and Stephenson has been a match winner for the PiesDo they?
It was an ordinary draft year and he was an outside mid everyone was after. Paddy Dow no good, mixed bag after that with the exception of steal Tim Kelly.
Time to adjust our expectations - first top 3 pick in 20 years and not even like we have to turn up and watch this I reckon it’s perfect timing.
Two North players were almost standing next to him, of which neither seemed to be providing voice or a block.He was in the middle of his kicking motion too. Just lacked a single iota of awareness that another player was behind him. That said, he's been quite acceptable over the last 3 weeks.
I'd like to say the jury is still out on Shaw as a tactician and a leader of men, but what is beyond question is the fact that he really doesn't English good.
