    Fast forward to late October, same year. Next season’s Fixture comes out. 4 of our first six 2017 games are exactedly repeated. So how did we go?

    My assessesment is an 7 out 10:
    -only non WA to win in Perth. The Round One win against the Eagles was in high sight was magnificent.
    -beat a Premiership favourite, the Giants, who a year earlier appear to have to wood on us with 3 powerful wins in a row.
    -another unbelievable and in this case against the odds win against the Cats at Kardinia Park.
    -beat the Premiers from only 18 months ago in the Bulldogs on their home ground, coming from a long way behind at half time.

    OK, there were the South Australian/SCG losses. However:
    -Port always do well at the SCG very early in given seasons as shown in ‘99, ‘06, and last year.
    -Tough coming back from Perth with 51/2 day break
    -With the Crows Buddy and Hanners were injured and shouldn’t have played
    -The Crows (including their coach) were fired up after a poor game in ADELAIDE the week before.

    I am sure there are plenty of other negatives. However, overall and compared with the first six Rounds of 2017, you’d have to fairly happy.
    Also interesting to note that the calls for Camerons inclusion from RWO posters were starting to arise then as well. 12 months later he still waits what does he need to do ?

    Yep, got to be consistently above average at NEAFL level to displace incumbents, it's a big step up in class so if you're not a cut above at NEAFL level you are unlikely to make it at AFL level.

    More of the same please Darcy.

    and although we didn't deserve to (and yes their goal kicking was poor in Q1), we could have inched the game against the Crows with better goal kicking accuracy in Q4. So it could be argued that the game against Port was the only one where we were beaten soundly. I'm going with a 7.5.
