@Stoops plays finals. Commiserations Windy Dill

Stoops 101.219
Windy Dill 101.106

Late adjustments are still to come, but Dill would need between 25-29pts depending on who the late adjustments affect to play finals and that margin is almost impossible.


#1967

Thanks mate, probably a shame for the comp you’re not in the 8 as you’d do a bit of damage, more than me I’d suggest.

Talk about a stressful last match though, would have been flat to go out on percentage with the fourth-highest score for the round!


#1968

Congratulations @Stoops I’d hate to have seen you miss because of another coaching move, looks like Dill has done an Adelaide and miss the finals after winning a premiership.


#1969

Like I said, I had mixed emotions about who got through.
Dill has had a terrible year.
But at the end of the day Stoops posted 1400+ and seems to me to be a much better game against WOB.

Congratulations, Stoops.
Bad luck, Dill. Could have easily gone your way.
And I know you’ll be a force next year.


#1970

Stoops’s heroes:

Jaegar O’Meara: 37pt last term including the late goal
Ricky Henderson: 80pts at 3/4time, was predicted to reach 100 - 6pts in the final term


#1971

Congratulations to all the finalists, except MB and Neela who can eat the proverbial bag.
And the MRP can eat two of them.


#1972

Well you did play two short vs Stoops (and still won), but could have given Dill the necessary percentage boost to get into finals


#1973

I’m guessing Dill has done himself in playing 2/3 short from at least Round 13-16.


#1974

30 points short, for the year…
I’m pretty sure Dill can find 30 points himself somewhere before he looks to others.

I also think he knows this was not his year.


#1975

to be fair, there was no word on Boyd being out before fa.

there were no rucks that would have stayed on my list next year so prioritised young players who may prove keepers


#1976

He’s had a shocking run, he’ll be top 4 for sure next year. Docherty for starters and a healty list makes him unbeatable again just about.


#1977

There are plenty of what-ifs, but realistically, I wouldn’t have bothered too many teams had I made finals. And having played short in quite a few games, I can only blame myself anyway for not making more of free agency and ensuring I had cover.

Having got only a handful of games out of my best defenders cost me. Docherty out before R1, Hanley injured in Q1 of R1 and never to return and Kolodjashnij out for all but three games was too much to cover. Aside from Hurley, the back line was a revolving door. And the replacements were abolutely rubbish aside from O’Riordan and Duman who showed a bit late in the season.

Good luck to all finalists. It should be a cracking finals series. I’m tipping a first time Premiership coach.

The Good

  1. Terrible season over, full of injury and inconsistent form. Now starts the job of list management, working out my final keepers and my drafting strategy. Right now my last 5 keeper spots are up for grabs and the last month will decide it. I’m not sure exactly if that’s a positive…

  2. If Menegola doesn’t win my B&F then I don’t know who will.

  3. McGovern’s last 3 weeks were nice, Sexton had a good second half of the year, Membrey would be great if he could ever kick straight., and Ceglar making a late push for a keeper spot.

The Bad

  1. I reckon 75% of my list has dropped their averages from last year

  2. Another injury 10 minutes into a game

  3. Most of my Saints boys are so inconsistent this year.

Good luck to all the finalists for the rest of the year.


#1979

Sexton looks a player.


#1980

He’d be a great scorer if GC gave him some supply…which could be next decade.

The good…

  • We won.
  • Shane Edwards has been a surprise this year. Not good enough to be a keeper, but has been great depth.
  • Beams, Duncan and Ward have scraped together a good season after such a poor start.
  • Jed Anderson :gun:

The bad…

  • We didn’t make finals.
  • This game sums up the good parts of the year. Look like pushing for 1500, but two or three poor performances dropped me into the 1350s.
  • The Dr Jekyll performance of Luke Ryan is baffling.
  • My backline is in real bad shape for a team wanting to make finals. It’s a pity because I thought I’d have close to the best backline with Newman, Murray, Tuohy, Luke Ryan, Haynes and Bonner.
  • Jamie Elliott. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

The ugly…

  • the upcoming season review and awards night is going to be brutal.

#1983

Costly win for my mob. Would have liked a top 6 pick :frowning:


#1984

Tough ask against Fudge this week.

ZJones out most likely.
Schaz done for the year.
Fisher done.
Conca still out.

We have Bont back though which should help and minor depth, should be a close game.


#1985

Pretty sure Z Jones has already been suspended for 2 weeks mate.
