I have washed my hands with soap for typing bad things about Francis.
Woosha is short sighted though. With Ambrose and Brown injured, it was the peferct opportunity to play Francis as the 3rd tall defender.
Watching Brown and Waite mark everything was a clear indication we need that 3rd tall defender. Play him.
If Howlett was getting games early in the season, it was a perfect opportunity to play Begley. He has missed that opportunity.
Langford has gone back and performed consistently at a high standard in the VFL. Why would you leave him there and let him get used to lack of intensity. Why would you play Bird ahead of him.
If it is a player like Morgen who hasn’t shown any potential in the VFL, it would be hard to play him. But guys who performed or shown huge potential have been missed.
He took that opportunity with McGrath. Even after quiet games he was given chances. Which is what we want with these other youngsters ae well.
