    Eek! I suspect that whatever faint finals chances that we had, just went by the wayside. Oh well, we should be more of a genuine chance next season.

    I wonder whether she'll still win the rising star?
    Loose translation from the Latin is - I am tall, so I hit out.

    Normally you'd reckon missing a third of the season says no. It probably cost Will Ashcroft the equivalent in the AFLM this year. I don't watch enough of the other teams to know how the other nominees/contenders are going. I guess it's possible that she's that far ahead that she could still win. Though she was well down on her season form against Hawthorn - quite possibly because her wrist was sore for most of the game.

    Morphett is going to be a big loss. Bella Smith will probably ruck.

    She'll probably do some, though Lexi Hamilton has been doing a lot of the relief ruck work in recent weeks. I daresay they'll have to share it, but I rate Smith as a more dangerous forward than Hamilton, and I think Hamilton's been reasonably effective in her ruck stints. She's been getting a few frees for her opponent's blocking her run at the ball, which you'd think would be a function of the opponent, rather than Hamilton, but I think she's received them over the last couple of matches so it might be something about the way she enters the contest.
