Only 2 weeks now until the real stuff starts and by my count we have 11 players who are currently injured to varying degrees: Langford, Stringer, Guelfi, Heppell, Hobbs, Cox, Caldwell, Tsatas, Reid, Stewart & JDavey - maybe I’ve missed someone not sure…
On a positive note we have a new coach, new captain and a few new players - Setterfield, Weideman & Davey - who’ve all had pretty decent pre-seasons.
Also Langford, Stringer & Guelfi should be right for round 1 and we should see a line up something like this;-
Ridley Zerk Kelly
Redman Lav McGrath
Martin Merrett Durham
Langford Weideman ADavey
Stringer 2MP Menzie
Draper Setterfield Shiel
Bench: Perkins Parish Massimo Jones
Emergency: Snelling Baldwin Voss
Would be great to kick off the season with a win at the G - comon Bombers!
it will be high scoring as both defenses are a little weak.
our game plan is high ball to forwards but sicily and Jiath should be able to cover that.
need our small forwards to create troublesome matchups and force turnovers when hawks are leaving our forward line
Yeah unfortunately the team’s still developing and gelling together. Unless there’s more co-ordination between the backs, mids and forwards we’ll struggle to kick a decent score. Looks like the Dawks are about 12 months ahead of us.
I feel like our supporters haven’t been broken down enough to be reprogrammed, if you are still thinking like that. Ofcourse it’s a young and experienced side who are playing in a different system.
This is a bottom out year and its not going to help if we jump on the coaches back after every bad loss.
