    Ta: though it seems sort of obligatory these days, that we have somebody who's not playing, but not on the injury list. If I remember rightly, Pink and Ronke have filled that role.

    Cameron must have went off after Amartey kicked the goal as you can see Amartey asking the bench whether he was to go into the ruck for the next centre bounce. I don't think we see Cameron again after this. There was nothing in the prior 3-4 minutes to indicate any obvious injury to Cameron.
    Which of is something of a comment on the observational skills, of the commentary pairing, that we often get doing NEAFL games. I made a mental note, of when it occurred to them that Cameron was missing. It was around four or five minutes into the final quarter. I think that they also identified at least three toppies as Kilpatrick.

    Do you not want to see these three improve and get into the senior side by the end of this year in a team that clearly needs to build towards the future???

    Im not so sure on Thurlow going out. I found it interesting that the commentators on Friday night alluded to the fact that he actually has very good reputation of disposing of the ball and that this would come with confidence and game time. It would be unusual for someone to lose that skill but it wouldnt be unusual for it to be a little rusty after limited game time.

    The guys you refer to are in my view very raw and we dont want a team made up completely of players like this.

    Do I not want to see these three improve? Of course I do. McInerney, in particular, has impressed me hugely at NEAFL level with his combination of pace, skill, competitiveness and willingness to take the game on.

    Do I think this has to happen by the end of this season? No, not particularly. None of them is particularly developed physically, and they all have plenty to learn about the game. I don't think the rest of this year (and even next) spent predominantly in the NEAFL team will indicate a failure in their development.

    Also, they are also similar players in the sense that the roles they are likely to play in the senior team are pretty similar. They'd each bring something slightly different, but nonetheless, they'd essentially play on the outside, at least at this stage in their careers. Hoping one of the three might see extended time in the senior team is one thing. Expecting all three to? I don't think so.

    Thurlow, especially, plays a quite different role. He's one who I hope will give the coaches confidence to release Mills further forward, particularly if he continues to settle and improve as he has over the last couple of matches. Fox and Jack are playing less defined, "utility" roles, but they still have the physical attributes to provide something more "inside" than any of the three younger players are currently capable of.
