I feel sorry for Mitch crowden often gets dropped when by far not the worst. His size counts against him as we have a lot of very small players in our side and that affects our marking around the ground. However with prediction of rain, he is very clean with his hands so he should at least give us a contest. Acres has been very underwhelming and his ball handling last week was extremely poor. Colyer i I just don’t get , he is certainly the teachers pet. Again small like crowden but far quicker but ball handling is generally poor. Not much of a side and probably will get walloped.
Losing faith in Darcy , but again the past dockers management seem to like recruiting these lumbering type talls with poorer than average agility.
Hopefully Bewley does not need to turn or zig zag as he can only run in straight lines with no side agility at all.

Darcy is an outstanding ruckman and at the same age is ahead of Grundy. I remember the idiots three years in questioning Grundy's being taken in the third round.

Darcy will be a star in three years.

What do you reckon - if The Owl ever wins a Doig Medal they'll have to hang it off his ears.

Darcy may end up being a good or even great ruckman, but he is far from outstanding at the moment.

The list of ruckmen who were outstanding at 22 is very small. He’s tracking nicely. If we ever we play in the dry again, keep an eye on his marking; there’s been a small uptick I reckon.

I feel bad for Acres. He’s had a significant injury, no pre-season and came straight into the team. It’s asking a lot.

I’m looking forward to seeing how Blakely goes. Looking at our list he’s probably our 20th best player (or there abouts), and has 2 years after this year under contract. JLo needs to get the best out of him, hopefully to help him cement a spot, but otherwise so he has some trade value.

I meant for his age he's doing great Morgan.

Doesn’t hit the scoreboard, doesn’t tackle, very low possessions, what does Matera do ??

Matera kicks goals. Not a heap, but over a goal a game. That’s better than most on our team.

Given scoring is hard to come by, I think it’s fair enough for him to get a game - at least until Henry is ready to go.
