Thread: Alright, who's the weakest link?

  1. #13
    I thought Marsh has been good this season. He has been taking a few intercept marks and been positive in attack.

    He seems more of a half back flanker than a natural defender who can shut down Cameron or Patton.

    Good post. I think Marsh has improved steadily as a player you can't expect more than that for a youngster.

    Matt80 has him in a fair place in the sandbox depth chart, but he his in quality company.

    Pretty harsh on KJ, he's playing as a small forward and that's definitely not his preferred position. Put him in the middle and watch his form return

    Weakest link? How about the match committee?

    How the hell did they drop Newman who had been getting plenty of the ball and looked good with his disposal. Gets send back to the NEAFL to get 30+ yet again.

    What do they see in Foote who is clearly not AFL standard, what few possessions he does get he turns over but they keep him in and boot out Newman!

    He played most of the second half as a midfielder.

    Well send him back to the midfield which is clearly not functioning and put in anyone that's capable of more than KJ has been producing as a small forward.

    There needs to be some serious rejigging of our team line up.

    Think our posts crossed in the ether so assume you're saying KJ played as a midfielder and not Newman in the NEAFL.

    Yes I was talking about Jack. He started the second half in the middle with Parker forward and while he still spent time forward most of the second half he was in the middle

    I don't mind the perseverance with Foote. He doesn't appear a natural football talent but he appears to do everything asked of him, on field and off, is strong on inside and not a bad kick. A description that would've fit a young Kirk.
    We haven't had a good tagger for a while, maybe Foote is being groomed for that kind of role?
    Then again, I think that is what should be done with Rohan. Turn him into a tagger. With some more experience he could play on the Dangerfields of the game. This week he could run with Cripps. And it would also teach him where to run to to get the ball, his main weakness as I see it. He just doesn't get the ball enough.

    Fair enough, it would be good to see him playing the whole match there though not once we are 32 points behind trying to stem the bleeding

    He has never had a enough of the footy. In Under 18's he was an around the ground utility. Yes, use him as a tagger, but I suspect he hasn't got a big tank. I would play him forward out of the square. Leave him there and under no circumstances let him drift into the backline. We need someone one out other than Franklin.
