Always a possibility but as a precaution , a north player withdrew last week after warm up , freo player today hurt his back getting out of his car today?
Ill take a win by any points , 2nd and the bye awaits to give us a chance to rest us rest for remainder of season . The loss vs geelong was costly in relation to the 4 points. We had a bad quarter against hawks and tigers. TMac and Jack V coming back in has made difference. Hogan has more freedom and Opponents must give both players respect. Viney gives oliver and jones a chance to play without a tagger.Other players have improved playing in winning teams , Anb , hannan , melksham . We arent relying on Bugg to kick 1.4 from 50 meter shots . We are having shots at goal from 40 meters from hogan tmac, hannan , petracca , brayshaw. Even maxxy us causing havoc when resting , pity about his kicking.
Our defence has tightened up , jetta continues last years form , wise heads of lewis and vince.
