Think Carlton Reserves Twitter spat the dummy but thank you to them for providing timely score updates even if we had to wait until the Blues goals.

I can just imagine what they are saying.....

"It's only a practice match. Player fitness and trialling game plan the most important thing, the real stuff starts next game, etc, etc"

I have copied the above paragraph and may use it tonight 😬

It’s only ever a practice game when you lose.

Clarry - High energy, dominated at times; no one could go with him. Lots of run and carry, got better as the game went on.

Jefferson - Took a big pack mark and goaled from 40. Looks a real player. 

Tholstrup - Super impressive. Brilliant crumbing goal and played time in the middle.

T Mac - Looked comfortable down back. Good communication with Hore

Hore - Did bits and pieces. Solid

Fullarton - Rucked most of the game. Promising signs

Woey - Didn't see much game time, but played in the middle

YAY FOR MATTY J! 🥳

Great signs to hear Oliver play so well. In my opinion, get him in for round 0 as it seems as though when Clarry is playing AFL footy, he is his best self. He's also the goat.

Also very encouraging to hear that Jefferson was presenting well and a solid target. He was always going to be a slow burn but, there's definitely something to work with. People are quick to forget that the kid is only 19 years old and has years of development left in him. It's not until at least year 3 that he'll be able to really show his strengths and build his fitness base.

Kolt is exactly the type of forward/mid we need who has tidy foot skills, a good overhead mark, some burst away from stoppages and an innate goal sense. He adds another dimension to the forward line for years to come and the type of player I think we are definitely lacking if Trac isn't up forward.

All the talk is about who we've lost in the midfield with Brayshaw obviously being the one that really hurts. Outside of that, Dunstan was insurance at best, Harmes was cooked and JJ (who I do like) didn't really have any standout attributes and was constantly on the fringe. We've been able to pick up Windsor, Kolt and Brown who all look talented and add speed and class to the mix as well as Billings who is a senior body and adds some polish to the forward 50 entries. We also have Woey and Laurie who are ready to take a jump although, clearly not near the calibre of Gus. Although the 4 coming in are unproven and the Brayshaw loss really does sting, it's not all doom and gloom and there's a number of viable options to collectively step up and cover.

Looking forward to a great year, up the Dees!

Good write up.

The way I'm viewing Brayshaw this year is like he did an ACL, which could happen to anyone. We would have to find a replacement in that instance for the 2024 season.

From 2025 on we will have the salary cap to go and find someone from another club if we feel the need.

This is not diminishing the loss of Gus, which is massive. Just that every side will have to deal with some type of injury issue throughout the year.

I’m delighted for Matty. He’s such a sweet kid, I love him. I know I say that about all the young kids but I have a soft spot for Matty since he helped me at the KB BBQ last year - and because we share the same birthday, a few years apart of course. Don’t anyone say a word! 😡

You know what grinds my gears. HOw much the media was going to town on Oliver when he was in the pits, going through god knows what. Now that he has gotten through his 2nd game and is hopefully on the way back to the best version of himself, not a peep. No good story. Perhaps it is a little premature, but what about a little positive reinforcement from the industry to let him know that we are all happy to see him on the mend.

TMac and Jefferson played the entire game this morning, so though named in the squad tonight, I expect limited minutes, if any. Tholstrup was pulled at half-time, so good chance he gets more game time tonight. Honorable mention for Andy M-W not mentioned above - very creative and dynamic around goals. Not much for Adams to do but he took some nice intercept marks.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
