#2701

I wasn’t saying… I mean, it’s not that…

Shut up.

Edit: kicked a nice goal on the weekend… Just sayin


#2702

remember, persistence beats resistance.


#2703

He’ll come back into the side pretty quickly. Every coach he has ever played for has loved him, and I cannot see Worsfold being any different.

Of course they’ll bring him back through the VFL.

All we’ll see is Hurley modify his role.


#2704

Please bring Ambrose back through the two’s. If he is good enough he will work his way toward selection.


#2705

Paddy Ram bro’s


#2706

Sshh, Sshh, don’t mention the war, it doesn’t fit the narrative


#2707

Fit and available for a full match.


#2708

Straight back in please. Was easily out best defender in the first month.


#2709

What a wonderful problem to have. Needs to play 2 games in the VFL before we have to decide. Two weeks is a long time in footy.

" Selection pressure" means everyone is on notice.


#2710

Not sure if you read the article but Justin Crow said he is ready to play a full game due to the mountain of work he has done. He could just be referring to VFL and he could just be trolling like they did with Begley, but if he does come straight into the ones then we can’t say we weren’t given notice.


#2711

And with the Tin Rattlers on the Tank express, … if they thought he was close to fit enough for seniors and wanted to get him in and up to speed asap, … then …


#2712

Whooa! Slow down there speed racer, hasn’t played for over 10 weeks. A game or 2 in the seconds won’t do any harm


#2713

Surely needs some VFL time to get touch and match hardened.

I’m sure they wouldn’t really consider this even if he was fit (rotations would muck this up), but if you wanted someone who had the attributes to run with Bont…


#2714

How many talls norf play?


#2715

Careful. That seems like the same sort of thinking that causes us to get rolled by cellar dwellers time after time. Resting players, bringing in underdone players, lairising, etc.


#2716

And there is some serious selection pressure.

Any player has a shocker and there are guys waiting to take that chance. So close to finals and players are going to become desperate. Especially is we win the next 3.

Guys in the AFL will play out of their skins through fear of being dropped and guys in the VFL will be running crazy trying to be the first in selected.


#2717

If he doesn’t play put him behind the opposition interchange bench just so he can glare at them.


#2718

He hasn’t played for what, 10 or so weeks?

It’d be madness to bring in a bloke straight away off a quad that he’s done twice into the seniors. Vfl please


#2719

Did I hear Harves say Ambo was our best ( defensive) defender ?

Based on that, once Ambo shows he has his “touch” back he will be brought back into the side


#2720

Will he be dropped if he plays too defensively like Hartley was?

Or was Hartley’s dropping more because we want him to attack and when he does he’s pretty good at it? I’m sort of confused where Ambrose’s role is if we want our defenders to be more on the attack.
