Any game plan that requires quick movement of the footy requires targets leading from, not to the goalsquare sorry Shane, goalrectangle. The time players are given in the modern game, to go back and take their kick after a mark is not long enough for teammates to get forward and then lead at the ball. factor in the umpire predilection for giving Freo players even less time, and the whole plan falls apart.

Lyon, even when Tabs & Hogan were playing, didn't have them marking the footy inside 50, they were the ones kicking it into the 50, to players running for the goalsqua rectangle. Players of the size of Walters, Matera, Brayshaw.

Real interesting to see Tom Lynches' ' "possession heat map'" from tonights game.
Kicked 5.
Interestingly, spent 100% of the time in the forward half. Had no data on distance travelled, but I'd be pretty sure he didnt get anywhere near 15km.

It aint rocket science!

He must have a coach who knows what hes doing....

Maybe someone should just try and handball to him - Cam's got a natural instinct for goal.

Drop him for not tackling.

Josh Kennedy scored the same number of goals as the entire Fremantle side last week.

Oh, and he also had one tackle.

He won't get a game for Freo then, too many goals and not enough tackles.

Agreed, too much of a knobber.

The Giants failed to set a new winning low score record for the season yesterday. Go Freo, we know you can score under 50 ponits and still win.
