Pretty disappointed at yesterday's game, I think the assessment of our form and where we are at is pretty simple and it's not worsfold or any youngster having a bad game.
Premierships are won by the core 24-30 y.o. We've got a couple of aging champions in Watson, Goddard and Kelly all over 30. We have a heap of exciting youth starting with heppel 24 and under. But the core 24-30 hasn't been up to scratch.
For mine the only player in that age bracket that's been good all 3 games is Ambrose.
The players that have been patchy or not up to there previous standards is pretty lengthy. Hurley, Hooker, Bags, Howlett, Hocking, Looney, Zaha, Colyer, Stants, Brown, Smack with only Bird and Myers that haven't played. Not going to single out any of them, some have played a good game and some are returning from injuries or suspension. But as a whole they are not giving enough.
The core needs to lift and quickly if they want to be a finals threat.
