    Re: Morris ACL!!!!

    Morris was doing laps at the pool today with the rehab group while wearing a big brace on his leg which might have been a Zimmer.

    My source at the pool suggests that he had his legs stable while...

    I'll add my voice to the chorus of thanks for posting this.

    That moment did get me beginning to believe. And by the end of the game I was all in - I've never been a cocky fan (hard to be when...

    Re: 3 Things I've learned Round 1 vs Swans 2019

    1. If we can bottle the contested ball (and pressure more generally), with an attacking game plan and precise disposal then we'll be ok.

    2. What I loved especially about Daniel's game was his...

    Does anyone know when the men's pre-season camp on the Sunshine Coast is?

    My brother lives up there, and his son is very keen to see a bit of training.

    Vale.

    I used to play tennis against him in a Sunday social competition. Gruff man, still an excellent player in his 60s.

    Condolences to family and friends.

    I like Wallis a lot, but agree that there is uncertainty over whether he is best 22, partly because at the moment there's quite a sizeable difference between his best and worst, which he needs to...

    Didn't Adelaide show how going tall can lead to success - yes they lost the final game of the season, but I wouldn't say that renders their game-plan obsolete. Obviously we can't play all, but the...

    I'm an advocate of Webb's, but I'm not sure that he's been handled that poorly. We're a young side, but still a pretty strong one, and Dunkley was doing some match-winning things before he went out...
  17. Re: Match Committee - Round 21, 2017 vs GWS Giants

    The problem for players like Webb is that they tend to come in and be given flanker roles where it is much harder to get a heap of the ball and clearly influence games. Lachy Hunter found it very...

    Suckling is getting a bit of heat at the moment from some supporters, so I thought I'd defend him, at least a bit. As I've said before, we have an excess of half-back flankers (along with a shortage...
  21. Re: Three things I've learned-round 5 v Brisbane

    1. Dunkley's running is so impressive for someone so young. Not only does he excel at getting out the back, but he also generally makes the opposition pay. Two things however. He can still be a bit...
  22. Re: Three things I've learned-round 5 v Brisbane

    I like to think of myself as a generous person, and so I'm very happy for other clubs to have a turn. Well, for another club to have a go. Maybe just once.

  27. Re: Declan Hamilton - the forgotten Recruit - Can he make it

  29. Re: Travis Cloke - What role will he play in our team?
