Not unhappy with 1324 from 17. It wasnt built on any one big score in particular, looking at the list most players hit what i think at worst was a baseline effort and there's a realistic expectation that quite a few have improvement in them. Ward, Mills, Stringer, Green and possibly Bowes can all score better than they did imo.
Hurley and Marchbank were solid scorers down back. DBJ likewise though i think he can improve on that.
Patton might be a concern, could have picked up an injury by reports.
Petrie breaking his hand hopefully opens the door for Giles to play, which obviously would help massively with the ruck problem.
St Kilda getting over run may put Acres in the frame for a game. Extra Centre depth would be handy.
Wasnt in my starting 18, but Knight getting a game and scoring well for the Crows was a promising beginning.
Francis slowly building fitness. Lang unlikely to break into a winning team this week.
Hopper is the one I'm sweating on. Be nice to get him up and running in the midfield and swap Steele back into attack.
A useful start, though i note that the score was literally mid-table across the league.
