    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    We’re going to go on a tear again now. This is just like a couple of months ago. Shocking performance followed by an improved (but losing) effort. Hopefully we get it right for the aints next week and capitalise in the good draw we have over the next month. If we’re still in Top 4 contention in 3 weeks time, which we should be, i’d Back us to take a scalp or 2 in the latter part of the year and get a bit of momentum. We can’t, however, drop any of the winnable games coming up.

    Changes v St Kilda

    I think this week against the Saints is the wrong week to bring in a second tall defender unless we think Josh Bruce will play. OMac and J. Smith are the right size match-ups for McCartin and Mambrey, unless we want to release Smith into a more running role (probably instead of Vince) or if OMac is suspended. There will come a time to bring in another tall defender but we can cover this week. In terms of other spots, Tim Smith offers a bit as a tackler but doesn’t hit the scoreboard much and offers little in the ruck. Whilst it’s important to create forward pressure, our conversion against Port was awful. Weid gets less of the ball but is more likely to score when he does and is a better second ruck option. He is also the future, Bull is not. On the subject of scoring, we were crying out for someone to take a half chance in that last quarter against Port. Felt like a Garlett cameo moment. He doesn’t touch it much but generally takes his chances and lays 3 tackles a game. Tyson offered little on the weekend and Harmes butchered it. Petracca at least started on fire and his touches have more impact. So I’d be looking at: Ins: Weid, Garlett/Stretch (very good VFL form) Outs: T Smith and Tyson

    Changes v St Kilda

    Next week probably isn’t the week to bring in another tall back like Petty, there isn’t an obvious match-up requirement. But I’d like to see him sooner rather than later in a game with two big opposition forwards. I’d swap Tim Smith and Tyson for Weid and Garlett. Weid in because, while I like Smith’s endeavour, he just doesn’t impact the game and was smashed by Dixon and Westhoff in the relief ruck role tonight. Garlett in for Tyson as we are already balls deep in inside mids but someone who can add some spark would be welcome. We were crying out for an opportunistic goal almost all night and Jeffy seems to have that ability. ANB hangs on despite the awareness and skills of my 16 month old son because he adds a little bit of value with his F50 tackling.

    He’s an honest trier but he’s a stop gap. We should play Weed for the rest of the year. We get as much out of him and he’s got a ton more upside

    You’re brave worrying about top 4. Have to win 5 or our last 9 to guarantee top 8 with games against WCE, Syd, Geelong in our run home...

    We also lost so much momentum when Max wasn’t in the middle. Tim Smith barely got a finger on it all night. He’s one of a number of fringers that don’t impact in big games.

    We lack composure. We don’t make selections factoring in the opposition or the conditions. We don’t beat good teams.

    Has Harmes hit a target by hand or foot in the last 5 mins?

    Lucky Westhoff missed but that contest was ominous. Really worried we’ll be exposed for height

    Has a team on 13 wins ever missed finals under the Final 8? 13 wins almost guarantees participation. 12 wins and % usually gets the job done.
