    First win? Haven't we beaten them a few times down there?

    First win for me in person.

    Patterns emerge, but do they mean anything? No.

    It'll get me shouted down but thought Tippos efforts in and around the ball were fantastic. Nothing special in the air but lots of second and third efforts. Mind you, Sinclair was very good too

    He injured his ankle again in the Buddy tackle. They might regret bringing him back on.

    You are wrong. That was the first incident, when he got tangled up with Zack Smith. He got strapped up after that one and came back on. I'm talking about the next incident, when he was tackled by Buddy and got his ankle snagged because he was sloping down and staging for a free kick rather than doing anything positive - as per normal.
    My opinion is objective truth in its purest form

    I thought Sinclair's efforts around the ground were excellent. Lots of tackles, contested possessions and some good forward entries. Clearly the best ruckman around the ground now.

    Yep, they were both good. Tippett scrambled well at ground level, took a couple of decent overhead marks. Sinclair ran hard all game - easily game high inside 50s, 13 contested possessions. Both deserve to play next week.

    I have been a little critical of Newman, but he was good. Won a couple of HTBs, kicked well.

    Parker , very good game.
    Tried his hand at speeches, ran out of ideas after two, so up front .

    First one was jumping onto his own player's foot. The second one, which ended his night, was in the Franklin tackle.

    I might be biased, but it's always nice to claim a bit of opposition turf for the night. Though up here in Queensland, it's slightly passe.

    Yes, thought that Tippett worked his way into the game and had a good second half.

    Very satisfying win and a % booster. I'm with you guys enjoying that Selwood's second injury was because he slumped down for the free, the Selwoods got three high tackles in a row at that stage.

    Great that we won big without much from Buddy.

    Reid was great, I don't want to hear him being put down on here, same with McVeigh who must get a contract for next year.

    Imagine how much bigger the margin could have been with Dawson in the side :-)
