    The Next Few Weeks

    Tonight was a game we expected to win but it wasn't to be which just proves how tough the competition is and that our premiership last year was one of the best ever.

    How do we see us going the next few weeks:

    We have:

    R4 Kangaroos - Etihad

    R5 Lions - Etihad

    R6 Giants - Spotless

    R7 Tigers - Etihad
    Western Bulldogs 2016 AFL Premiers
    Cede Nullis (Yield To None)

    I think we'll bounce back and win the next couple. GWS will be another test
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Tend to agree. Must be on the ball whoever will play and I'm expecting the Roos and Lions to come at us strong but quietly confident we have the quality to win. The Giants will be tough and hopefully by the time we play the Tigers they are in a form slump.

    The slowness of the players is a concern. Is it the late start to preseason? Lack of hunger? Both? How long can grand final teams use the late preseason excuse for?

    Would be nice and can happen but we really need to lift our intensity as the first few weeks of the season it hasn't been there. Would set up our season nicely if your right BAD.

    1 down and only just.

    Next few weeks now the Lions at Etihad we should win but they have improved somewhat and haven't looked too bad when they have played at Etihad.

    Giants at Spotless - tough one

    Tigers at Etihad we should win but will depend what their form is like around then.

    Local derby + do or die for the Swans = banged up GWS the week before we play them (hopefully)

    Re: The Next Few Weeks

    Huge that we get it together properly.

    R8 - WCE at Perth (4th)
    R9 - Geelong at Skilled (3rd)
    R10 - St Kilda at Etihad (8th)

    Huge if we go in with three wins, or at least two wins. We can't let the teams around us currently get space on us, but we can put some space on them.
    Things are about to get pretty, pretty, pretty good.

    We could win all 3 if like you say BT get our stuff in order and play high intensity.

    Have to play with the same intensity we had against GWS.
    Cannot afford to give any of those 3 a big start.

    Hopefully will have the likes of Dickson and redpath return which will hopefully give our fwd line a little more structure.
    I will never see #16 the same!!

    Dickson and Redpath were very good in the VFL yesterday. They certainly would bolster our forward stocks. We get the ball undide 50 a good number of times but just need more cohesion in what we do with it in there. Was great to seeing Marcus grab a few in there and kick a couple. We won the game but Morris is another who's experience in defence would have been just what we needed last night.

    With Stringer out we certainly need them back.
