    Good stuff so far though we could easily be another 2 or 3 goals further in front. Some good signs though and I hope Buddy kicks 10!

    Great half given Eagle’s earlier pressure around the ball. Buddy on fire, he looked really fit in pre-season. Heeney is a gun. Kizza looks set for a good season.

    Captain, I am detecting large quantities of win in this sector

    The only team to win both the hitouts and the game this round was Essendon, who won the hitouts by a mere 2. We should ask for a recount. Sinkers is having an excellent game. Towers as well. They are making a formidable ruck combo.

    I don't think we are looking as sharp as a few other sides this round. I thought we would be able to move the ball more cleanly. We got better in the 2nd qtr and hopefully it picks ups in this half.

    Really good game and I like that we're not relying on Kennedy or Parker.

    The love for Heeney and Mills is growing. They are fearless.

    We need to start reading Nic Nat's taps.

    The stats are reasonably even around the ground. NicNat has more hitouts but we have more clearances

    The difference is in the forward 50 entry efficiency where we have Buddy and they are missing Kennedy.

    Natanui getting ruck taps but not hurting us - he will slow down in the second half.

    Really hard to be critical in the first half, but we need to keep pushing.

    While its great to play superb footy in rd 1, ill be happy to get a win and off on the right track to be perfectly honest. Its been scrappy at times but with some good stuff mixed in.

    And Jetta picking out our backmen is also helpful. Maybe it's still force of habit: just aim for the red and white.

    Sinclair is looking good.
