Got outplayed by a bigger and better team tonight, who would’ve thought.
We wet our pants the second they lifted their pressure and were once again unable to stop a run of goals. Getting damn sick of it.
Darcy Parish is a fkn gun. Zach tried his gut out. I love Lav.
We did a lot right but just couldn’t buy a mark inside 50 during our periods of dominance, meanwhile the opposition’s almost-past-it older players turn in their best performances of the season.
It’s hard to be too displeased at a young side being out-muscled in the wet and there are still plenty of positives, but the forward line is still a huge concern.
-Parish keeps finding new ways to amaze, phenomenal
-Stringer is in fantastic form as well
-Smith infinitely better than last week (that said, still nowhere near his best)
-Snelling was excellent first game back
-On a dirty night for our key forwards, Jones made the most of very limited opportunities
-2MP was fairly solid and should probably displace Hooker at FF
Well, what can ya say aye. A game we were never supposed to win in a season we were expected to finish bottom 4.
But, after that first quarter of really good play, then came the collapsing of skills, terrible individual performances, terrible style of play and how we went inside 50 - its hard not to be frustrated.
We really need to target some key position players this trade / draft period. I have no idea who, and I have no idea how but we have to.
And the coaches still have a big job of getting this game style further developed, especially when it comes to defensive structuring and moving the ball inside 50 which are serious concerns right now.
It’s hard to be patient after 2 decades of being basically a joke of the competition, I just hope that we’re actually heading to promised land.
