    Limited or not, all three continue to find the ball on numerous occasions, no matter who the opposition might be.

    In rounds 7 and 8 Macrae led the team in tackles, and he only had 70% game time against Fremantle. Must count for something. Not only that he is close to our most efficient with ball in hand. And when you take time on ground into account he is still one of our best ball getters. Would be close to my first picked any game.

    It never used to be the case with Jack. I think a bit like a lot of midfielders they get comfortable after a while, especially if they're prolific ball winners. We need to make the most of Ed prior to his inevitable transition into that space.

    Yes, both sessions. He seemed fine today. Perhaps it happened a bit later

    I was pleased to hear Sanders acknowledge that he has gone back to the vfl to work on his defensive running. Hopefully that sticks with him for his career.

    But yeah, complacency can be a MoFo.

    I?ve been a critic but - what can I say...he?s passed the eye test since his return re defensive efforts.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    I think it's why you can't be as homogenised as we have been with our mix over time. New blood keeps people on their toes.

    Losing Smith this year has been a massive problem, something that's been lost in the commentary around where he will end up next year. In hindsight he should have been given more opportunity to put others under pressure these past couple of years.

    Couldn't disagree more with Macrae. He is excellent on the defensive side when in the middle. That is what we have missed as Bont, Treloar and Libber are one way. He maybe slow on the outside but his tackling is first class and underestimated by supporters.

    Yes, he is an excellent tackler, but his defensive transition running has been abysmal over the past 2-3 years... it's only been one pace which is a slow jog.

    Yeah Macrae is with Adz and Libba in being a limited mid.
    When you say limited what do you mean? Not Bont?

    I'll agree that Jack and Libba don't have the wheels, although Libba can still move alright and Adz is not elite defensively (although his pressure / tackles numbers are up this season).

    Every team has primary midfielders with shortcomings. FWIW I don't think Adz is limited as a midfielder at all as I said his defensive numbers are up, he hits the scoreboard, he kicks on both sides reasonably well and gets it a heap.

    He's actually one of the most consistent performers outside of Bont in the team and plays at a high level pretty much every week.

    He's also gone to half forward for us in the past and hit the scoreboard.

    Ed's been a revelation in the middle but he does tend to butcher the ball badly at times and doesn't have Adz's IQ or hands in close, he's developing though but he certainly does have his limitations pretty much like 90% of the midfielders in the competition.

    Maybe I'm missing something and you meant something else?
    But then again, I'm an Internet poster and Bevo is a premiership coach so draw your own conclusions.
