    No coincidence that the two games Matthew Jefferson has hit the scoreboard and looked dangerous is when he's been the main forward target.

    I have no idea how they manage this moving forward but having Schache, Ben Brown and Tom Fullarton simply doesn't work for him.

    Most likely 2 will be gone by this time next year.

    Kid should focus on developing not stats

    Me thinks there has been a little historical manipulation by our/Ports Jack. He is never going to admit his part in his leaving both MFC and PAFC.

    Agree.

    I've never had anything against Jack but when he does speak it's always someone else's fault.

    I think jack would benefit from taking some responsibility

    Yeah, don't get that at all.  I hardly think I've see Laurie play a hard contested manner or with a defensive mindset.  In neither of the practice matches did he show any class and poise handling the ball that is suposely his one wood.  Look good on him if he goes on and proves me wrong, but from all I've seen, he's just not senior AFL standard.

    We have plenty of other up and comming players like Wowewodin, Kynan Brown, Throstrup etc that are already ahead of him and don't see why we keep gifting him games or why we extended his contract.  Hope he's only getting paid peanuts.

    Billings on the other hand had been great in both our practice matches and I thought it was a huge mistake to play him starting as the sub last week.

    There are likely things internally we don't see that Goody is rewarding.

    I agree game day it hasn't shine through and it isn't commentary of the player will make it or not.

    How much did the addition of BBB straighten up our forward line?!!! Meant JVR wasn't the defender's focus. Created contests for our smalls in the forward line, Chin, Kossie and Nibbler. And that sidestep, my lordie... stick him in the midfield!!!

    I was happy to see him do well.

    Its a big if, but if we can move teh ball fast and utilise his strengths, he may kick a few this year with the way the game is now played.

    A moment needs to be taken, to try and comprehend playing Laurie and Spargo ahead of Billings last week

    WHile i 100% agree with you, i am going to go out on a limb and say from a leadship POV i like what Goody did by rewarding players who displayed the values teh club wants.

    Did the players take their opportunities, well taht is debatable, do I think they will make it, again debatable, but i do think it was good leadership.

    Petty has not had a kick and barely a touch!

    Thanks Mr fence.

    Interesting considering Goodwin thinks he'll play next week.

    Fullarton for me has to play 1s.

    If we are going to be any good this year Fullarton has to play and play well.

    Really just want McAdam available, he was meant to help fix all this nonsense in the forward line and where is he?  Anyone know anything about his current situation and when he might be back?

    I think Petty, Koz and McAdam all make us better, and i hope we can get them all fit and firing.

    But let's be patient, it's a long season

    Fullarton  likely, Jed Adams impressive, Brown rusty but they might bite the bullet, Brown dog good but needs time, Tholly not far of.Sestan? Currently offers more than Spargo and or Chandler. T. Mac impressive at Full Back

    Thanks Pickett

    Fullarton i feel is a big in, can chop out for Max abd play as a tall and make a contest.

    Koz is an important in?

    Anyone stand out to replace Bowser?

    Selection was baffling in my view as was he selection of Billings as Sub. I have wanted Bailey Laurie to succeed and have seen some good bits and pieces of ply from him. I have to say that I would not have him in the gameday 23 until he has absolutely battered the door down with a succession of dominating game at Casey. 

    The forwards have been a problem for a number of seasons and I do not see any improvement in the situation. Delivery has been blamed but if you do not have movement or a dominating target to kick to then it does not matter how well it is delivered. Last night I saw a forward line group that did not look to have a clear plan to work too. Schache really did not give us anything worthwhile and I would look at playing anyone else and put Schache in the same basket as Laurie. Here are half a dozen doors marked Casey..... let me know when you have knocked them all down and then we can talk.

     

    Agree with that, i think Billings is starting 18, but we will see next week.

    Schache and Laurie, i get we rewarded their selections but in saying that there are obviously big doubts on them long term. I agree with yo about Laurie, i don't want to bag individuals and blame them, but tbh i feel he is the same as Schache, and it dosen't fit our game style.

    I think Koz, Fullatrton, Petty and McAdam are important ins if they're fit.

    I feel its a bit of a reubuild this year, and trying to find a good balance of skill and experience.

    Blues laid 39 tackles for the night, very little pressure. Still only a practice game.

    Hope it eases last week's doomsayers though.

    This.

    I don't think the blues were going at 100%.

    But was happy to see what is possible.

    Some good signs, hopefully we can build some form.
