    Rose looking good

    That play on by Robinson was costly. If he got the set shot we were within 6 points with our tails up.

    Perhaps 2017 Aliir has a motivation problem due to never getting a game in the AFL?

    I would hope that his motivation should be to break into the side on the merit of him consistently playing NEAFL footy that is too good for selectors to ignore. I'm not sure why he would have (or be audacious enough to believe he deserves to have) any expectation to be playing senior footy at this stage of his career. He certainly hasn't been a standout at senior level and been good without being brilliant at NEAFL level.

    It was pretty even after the first quarter shame that we gave them that head start. However it was worrying how easily they marked the ball in our forward 50 given how strong our back six has been this year.

    I am not sure about the goal kickers. Did not Maibaum get one?

    He was part of the team at the end of last year, including finals. Now Melican has gone past him. I don't think he's going to get back into the side as a tall defender no matter how well he plays in the NEAFL. And Shaw has been playing him all over the place to see if he can't find another way in (a la XR last year).

    Yes he definitely did. I wasn't taking notes just got the list from the NEAFL app

    We just looked so small against them. Whilst Maibaum was good up forward it left us seriously short in defence. Particularly with Aliir in the ruck. Considering Dawson was being tagged by Beams i would have played him deeper in attack in 2nd half.
    The end result was indicative of their better play, but gee we blew some chances in that final qtr.

    Okay they gave Maibaum's goal to Robinson. Not sure how given Maibaum's size and build difference.

    During the footy off-season he went back to Kenya (or Sudan) to participate in a family wedding there, maybe the first time since he was a kid or young (?). I wondered earlier on whether that experience has affected his focus on footy. I can imagine that young refugees in particular may struggle with identity issues from time to time, like 'who am I' and 'where do I belong?' Among all the uncertainties of life as a sort of trail-blazer in the competitive AFL environment it must be difficult to find your way. Even the Irish players whose culture is similar to ours have their problems in finding their feet. Whatever Aliir's issues are I hope we will persevere with him.

    I don' think it is anything more than the fact he let someone else have a crack ahead of him and that person (Melican) has now made it extremely difficult to get back in the team.

    There's a KPD slot up for grabs soon and there's always the possibility of injuries but I suspect he's very frustrated. Time will tell of course but I would expect many clubs to be making inquiries to the player and the club re Aliir this off season. I think that he'll stay around but stranger things have happened
