    Harsh on Stephens. He was only on for 10 minutes.

    Do others recall this? Buddy was very put out but had to abide by the ruling. Another goal was all we ever wanted!
    And both of Parker's kicks at goal were just short. It's all part of the game

    I'm assuming greeng was joking. But I'm hoping that we don't return to 90% of all entries into 50 being of the "Bomb it to Buddy" variety.
    The resultant increase in predictability, together with the years he's played, may result in more goals for Buddy, but make it increasingly likely to result in less goals for the team as a whole.

    Agree we have reverted back to bomb into the forward line game plan. With Reid in the ruck part time and Heeney out, I am not sold on this as the best option.

    Mummy is always out to hurt a player or 2 and just unfortunately it was our rucks late in the game. Hope Hickey returns soon as I am convinced he is a good draft option. We need to have faith in Melican as he is next best back to take a tall.

    Giants were harder at the ball for most of the game and we had a few 5 - 10 min spurts. Need more..

    Agree some kids are now attracting tags and need to work through how to play with a tag.

    A loss we needed to have it is just unfortunate it was against the flaming giants.
