  1. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 15, Vs Port Adelaide

    The season is cooked so let's use the remaining games to get some answers to the questions being asked about certain players. Lewis Young for example. Just play him for the rest of the year. Ben...

    Cordy has not come on as I expected he might. For a tall player I’m scratching my head to re-call him taking an overhead contested mark or intercept mark. Time to give Lewis Young an extended run.

    Goal kicking has been THE big issue since 2016. Fix that and our ladder position improves markedly. But it is not our only issue. We are just doing too many dumb things. Suckling flaffing around and...

  9. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 14, Vs Collingwood

    If we remember the last time we played them, for me, the number one priority is to curb Grundy's influence. Do that and we are on the way to limiting the effect of Treloar and Pendlebury

    I absolutely agree with this. Trengove may as well not have been out there today but English cannot play back so we needed another tall defender in. Lewis Young is the only one I can think of.
