    Jessie Hogan Trade to Freo

    Uncontracted. The other issue is that there is more competition for Lever's services in Melbourne than for Hogan's in WA. I think we will do ok out of it.

    Jessie Hogan Trade to Freo

    We don't know, but its likely that there have been a lot of work done already. It is possible and proabaly likely that the numbers have been done and it has been agreed that Hogan is either going there this season, or he plays out his contract and he goes next year. Both clubs, Hogan and his manager will know.

    Jessie Hogan Trade to Freo

    Sadly the other reality is that we aren't in a strong position when only one year out from him being an RFA. Yes he is contracted, but if freo are confident of getting him after next season they wait a year and get him for nothing. We get better value now, but we won't get two first rounders.

    Jessie Hogan Trade to Freo

    That goes against his policy of trading before a player becomes a free agent. A ruthless club wouldb do the trade if it was aware that said player was going to leave a year later for zilch.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    Anyone looking at that game in isolation in terms of game plan and list needs etc is barking up the wrong tree. I see a lot of posts pulling the loss apart on a micro level. It's like polishing your car when it's broken down. We caved in mentally, the crowd, the occasion and the opposition had us beat before we hit the turf. Nothing depicted that more than hand passes to the grass and behind players. Sure sign of being tightened up due to fear. I have no idea what the mental preparation was, but it didn't work. We will be far more prepared next time. Goodwin shows a capacity to learn.

    It’s the game plan

    Any game plan when over awed will not work. We played the game before the first siren sounded. You could see it on their faces. We will bounce back.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Preliminary Final

    I like it. I also wouldn't be surprised if Smith goes straight to Darling and Frost to Kennedy and Omac to the resting ruck. Omac to Kennedy worries me, Kennedy gets a lot on the lead and Omac struggles with leading types. He is much better under the high ball.

    Brave decision, good decision. Smith can be swung to Kennedy or Darling should our match ups not work out. They are also playing 2 rucks and they will alternate forward. Hard decision but an obvious one.

    The moment you know when you’re going to win

    He was practicing them before the game and hitting a few. As was Bailey Fritsch, and his were going straight and long.

    Changes v Eagles - Preliminary Final

    My concern is that we have spent a lot of petrol tickets over the last month. We saw on Friday night some signs that we might be tailing off a touch. Our game is energy depleting. Head says we will really struggle against a freshened up Eagles in the sunshine away. Heart says we dig extra deep and get it done. Massive, massive ask.

    He is the most inspirational player we have had at the club in my lifetime.
