Could see a large cut of our reserves.

Mutimer, Mallen, Ah Chee, Brayshaw, Nelson, Smith would all be considered for delisting. Who knows where Masten is at.

Exxon and Foley are young and saved by contracts.

Brander, Williams, Brooksby and Cameron look decent.

Nobody put their hand up and said pick me.

Nelson and Rotham were ok in defence, Williams and Brander look like they have talent but the delivery into the forward i50 was poor.

Please do not look at the stats and see Masten getting 30 disposals equaling a good game. Bolton and Mitchell who had 30+ touches and what they did with their possessions is the reason Claremont took home 4 points

I think a Waterman or McInnes would have gone a long way to fixing some of the issues from that game, but the midfield depth and hurt factor isn’t going to be solved without new personnel. The Beagles play like a cleaner ammos side, not an AFL side with some skill downgrades.

So if Jye Bolton was playing for the Beagles, I think there would be a chorus singing out for him to be playing seniors. Every time he plays Beagles/East Perth , he is such a class above anything we have in waiting.
Watched him the last couple of years thrash the alignment team in the midfield and no different against the stand alone team.the knock for Bolton is just like tim Kelly I liked him as recruit for us which destroyed his chances.Seriously he would have been worth a shot even on the rookie list.

Public holiday tomorrow , Beagles should have been scheduled . Then the emergencies could play .
Never gonna happen.Tomorrow is designated real derby day with east v south fremantle and east perth v west perth.If the eagles hadn't done a deal with Claremont to shift this game to optus it would have been played yesterday and still the emergencies don't play.

Brander probably the pick for me but not anything special, and nobody did anything to get a call-up from that. Williams continues to show signs. Rotham is great. Foley reads it well.

Allen, Ah Chee too quiet for lead mids. How Mutimer is on a list is a mystery to me.

Agree.When Partington was getting 30 possessions the last couple of years he did no damage unlike Bolton and Mitchell.

How Marsden finished with 30 touches is absolutely beyond me. Watching at the ground, he did absolutely **** all. I was disappointed in his leadership.

Other observations from watching from the front row live:


-The absolute abuse the payers spit at each other. Brander lost it at Nelson, Ah Chee roasted Gray. Everyone abused the pathetic umpires, myself included.

- I'd give Nelson another year, he's good depth and rarely plays a "bad" game.

- Rotham was solid. Happy with how he's progressing, wish he rebounded more.

- Brander was silky and I liked the way he takes his opponents tackle on. But i cry very time i see him playing up field and taking zero contested marks. Big lad now.


- Speaking of, Bailey competed well. His leap isn't enough of a weapon yet but i hope the club teaches him how to use it more. Not enough marks for my liking.

- O'neill was pretty invisible. 7 touches is shocking. Not liking the early signs.

- Allen was poor

- Foley was average. Not really noticeable.

- Gray was ****. Anyone who thinks the pseudo tough guy should be on our list needs to watch him play. Tough grunt who's not AFL quality, never has been.

- Mutimer was poor.

- Cameron i really liked. For a 70kg kid he tackles really well and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty. Couple of cheap high tackle free kicks. Oppo didn't like him.

- Keegan is a likeable bloke but he's a dinosaur. Didn't offer much at ground level, it was cringe him playing FF at times.

- Ah Chee was pissed. Tough day at the office for him. Not his best game and was burnt by his spud teammates a few times.

- Fisher was a gun and typically sexy. Get him on our list. Very good 1 on 1 player.


Why Brander wasn't playing out of the FF is beyond me. Plunk him forward and leave him there as a target so we don't have to use Brooksby FFS.

Says a lot about your midfield depth when Marsden was the only one of our players to get 19+ disposals coming off a hamstring injury.

Why Jye Bolton isn't on a list is beyond me. he was hands down better than all our mids.

Eastland is a big dopey campaigner who the umpire continued to gift free kicks to in the ruck.
