    Re: Three things I have learned Rnd 9 vs Geelong

    1. Normally despondent after a 40 point loss but this week I thought there were some real positives in our performance and will build on into the future.

    2. Trengove has really been impressive since his return. It is critical to a developing team to have an experienced campaigner in the team who gives his all and does not shirk the contest.

    3. Bailey Smith is carving it up. Certainly my son's favourite player, not far behind in my books either. Smith, English, Naughton - three players that will delight us for the next decade.

    Re: Three things I have learned Rnd 9 vs Geelong

    1. This was a missed opportunity to play Lew Young in the ruck and Trengrove, a stronger bodied player on Hawkins
    2 At the end of the day our lack of depth became the difference. Hayes and Gowers need to go back to Footscray and as does Richards which is not unusual for a second year player
    3 Our Club desperately needs to play a second tall forward to support Naughton. This became most obvious against a strong Geelong defence

    Some very good observations in this thread. I missed the game so cannot comment. But thanks for all the insights.

    How come you missed the game?
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "
