    If we're gonna kick it long, at least kick it deeper. White having a great match so far. Hannebery will hopefully get better.

    Agreed, super easy transition from their back half to their forward. It seems too that the bit of room we had earlier in the year has evaporated, and therefore our quick in and under hand passes aren't possible.

    Richo made a good comment earlier regarding Tippett and Pyke standing too close to one another in the forward 50, making it easier for Hawk defenders. Longmire has to find a way to isolate those guys.

    Actually I have thought it a pretty terrible game. Our skills deplorable, and we really should be two goals up. The game couldn't have been played in that quarter more on our terms. We really have failed to make the most of our chances, and then when they get the ball near the fifty their ability to hit a target inside fifty has been scary.

    Birds kicking needs to improve drastically.

    Mcveigh needs to impose himself.

    Sad actually because they are there for the taking.

    Look the pressure or perceived pressure is having a huge impact on the delivery and Hannas has had a week out. It makes a difference. He was one of the players taking in huge breaths at the quarter time break. I think he only started training the last session. The kicking for goal is crap by both sides

    Yep. Typical. If we can't shut them down without Franklin and Rioli then we don't deserve to win the premiership. We'll see how it goes.

    Deplorable skills and a very one dimensional forward line. The top heavy nature is killing us
