Looking towards the pies - ANZAC day


#361


Ashby may have done a nice job in a limited time last week, but its about the quality coming in. Dempsey/licha are no brainers, and unfortunately there is going to be a hard luck case. Gleeson stays though I think, has been the pick of the kids and quite consistent

As I said, I understand for Dempsey, but why do you drop someone from defense to bring in a medium forward? Why not replace a non performing/stop gap forward?
Quite often our changes arn't like for like, you can quite easily change the balance of the side - eg hardy can play both ends, watson forward, carlisle ruck etc. I think ashby has been okay, but he's probably first in line to be dropped
Each to their own I guess. A kid that comes in a runs at 85% disposal efficiency since game one, would not be the first person I'd drop. I'm a Hardy fan, but I wouldn't drop Ashby to move him back.
ashby is like for like with too many in the team already. You drop him because he is only in through ijuries to the midsized forwards and dempsey in the first place. Replacing him with a more attacking player addresses an imbalance. It doesnt create one

Why is Ashby first in line?
Thought it was a player under performing who would be first in line.
And the list is long before you get to Asby
we'll see

Oh hang on Ashby IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Missed out on tickets this year. Spewing. Where could I find a quality drinking establishment to watch the game? Preferable one filled with my fellow red and black kinsmen.
