    Re: Josh Dunkley - A power Mid in 2019

    I said in another thread....I see Dunks as being a huge chance to become our Vice Captain next year when they make Bontempelli captain.

    Bankers:

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

    Agree on Treloar being the one to shut down in the first instance. In inredible form. But we might need to keep an open mind on it during the game if they start hitting the ball to outside the...

    I don't fancy Crozier as a hard shut down. Think he goes to WHE. Bailey Williams possibly as Stephenson's match up. And before everyone says 'Stephenson is too quick for Williams'.....Stephenson is...

  9. Re: Three things you have learned round 13 2019 v Carlton.

    1. Carlton seem to be a team we don't match up overly well with. Even when we were playing far better (2015/16) - we never really have gotten a hold of them.

    2. There is a serious case for Dunks...

    I was certainly in the minority, but actually felt that a fair portion of Roughead's best footy for us was as a tall defender. He played the role in the worst of times, where the defenders were...
  13. Re: Always Right Match Committee Thread Round 13, Vs Carlton

    Having Dunkley tag or "put some time into" (as Bevo likes to say it) Cripps is essential. Dunks is very strong and competitive and the only suitable person to do the role in my view. And Mantis is...

    Bontempelli had a shocker yesterday. He was awful at the centre bounces and had the fumbles all day.
    Given he's been as good as nearly anyone in the league this year - I'm prepared to forgive!

    One thing is for sure - we won't tag Cripps. He'll just get 35+ because we are much too clever to tag.

    Yes, by all means lets not have any patience with a young player in their current role - and rush them into an unfamiliar role immediately. It has worked so well in the past.
