Round 19 vs Geelong @ Kardinia Park, 1pm Sunday 27 August 2017

More scoring shots too.

To be fair Hooker went out in the warm up- Langford was not at the stadium. In the end Hocking did pretty well.

We’ve got some pretty good players to come back into that side.

Looks like another game lost by poor conversion

Mitch Brown (sorry haven’t read back) ?

Will our game be on sat or sunday next week?

I’m guessing the VFL will announce this a few days after they start selling tickets. Which they haven’t provided info on yet.

Presumably Saturday since Richmond finished above us and thus get a 7 day break. On the other hand, why apply logic?


Fortburn Stadium? Really?

Played in defence.

Interesting playing Ferry forward.

Was Francis bog in your opinion Dave ?

Well, given I wasn’t there… sure, GET EXCITED.
