Fairly or not I’ve lumped Colyer, Shultz and Banfield together as ‘forward role players’. You could talk me into any of them as being useful and worthwhile but 20 touches, a handful of tackles and zero goals between them isn’t enough output.

Bring back CamMac.

Fair!
You can't carry all of them in the side. Dardy is one of the best lead up players we have, is pretty quick and a good, long kick.

We need Wilson ''breaking the lines. ' he seems to have almost lost this ability...and for what ever reason....is kicking to the line or 'taking the easy kick' to the side, on just about every occasion.
Wasn't until the last quarter till we saw him do this...

We need him, Hilly, Aish & Acres doing this. Rarely saw a willingness to do so today. The backline are inexperienced & under manned, - so its somewhat forgivable - but one of these guys needs to stand up and lead the way.
Wilson's got to be the one.

Nathan Wilson's 'metres gained' numbers have dropped from 510 metres per game in 2018 to 475 in 2019. In 2020, that figure has fallen further, to 292 metres per match.

Granted, the game time is shorter, but the Dockers would be hoping to see that rise significantly to help generate scores out of the back half.

Possibly he has a bit more to do without a few of our missing defenders, CA.

Wilson was restricted most of the preseason recovering from his foot, he’s been off His game all year. i actually thought that was the first game he’s done a bit of run and carry. I don't think his best is too far away. I like Banfield and Shultz for their pressure but they need to do more than that. Colyer is quick but like Matera can go missing for long periods and doesnt get enough of it. I think we need to keep rolling the dice with the younger guys. I look forward to Henry coming in, hopefully he’s only a couple of weeks away.

You have to love Schultz's pressure, but as a small forward his first requirement is to kick goals. Once the ball hit the ground in our forward line yesterday it was run out with ease, so the pressure wasn't there either.
Banfield has won two F&B's playing as a midfielder, but unfortunately he is following the well worn Freo path to oblivion as the defensive half forward.
Colyer i just don't get. He rarely gets more than 10 disposals, is in his late 20s but is quick. So?
Blakely as mentioned before has the second biggest disposal average in our squad. Serong is struggling to get the ball too often at this stage, but certainly shows glimpses, and is part of the future. With Fyfe out, Walters is being asked to do too much as a midfielder, Tucker had a shocker yesterday and we had nobody with more than 20 disposals. In fact our leading ball winner was a backman-Ryan.
I don't buy the he has to work on his disposal thing. It's not like he's an orphan there. He should be playing a role in there to support our younger kids.
And as for McCarthy, is it his lack of pressure that's stopping him from getting a game? We really only had two forwards yeasterday, Lobb and Tabener. Oh and a great little debut from Roy. Not sure it's the role of the bigger forward to apply all the pressure anyway. Hogan gives little to none and is a walk up start when fit.

This might be heretical, but if you were looking to play Blakely on form the player you would leave out would be David Mundy.
