Run and gun off half back through the corridor is not sustainable. We are a one trick pony and that is our trick. So things need to change.
Last weekend, first the Swans choked off our run off half back, then GWS were beaten by Hawthorn, who denied them the ability to launch off half back.
Clarkson and Horse have shown all the other clubs how to beat the game style that we and GWS share.
A radical change is needed. Lets be realistic, the club will not sack the coach until the end of the season. But selection of players needs to be based on the fact that there must be a contested footy basis to our game, because each team we play will first of all study those 2 games from last weekend to see how Clarko and Horse did it.
Part of this must surely be a re-assessement of the “no tag” and “always allow our opponents 7 defenders” principles of the way we want to play.
