Last quarter is on the freo website now, Treacy looks good, but they ease up and let the weagles kick a couple late.

Who was it that put his knee into Luke Ryan’s back? Totally unnecessary! These instances should be looked at because a lot of damage, even permanent damage could be done. Thank goodness Luke appears to be ok but it shouldn’t have happened.

I liked Treacy in the forward fifty, great set shot kicking. My nickname nomination- "Tricky Dicky"
And Frederick in the backline for the fourth quarter, looked comfortable, and wearing #43.

I’d be interested in any thoughts on Liam Henry. There was lots of talk about his improvement over the off season from the club but he doesn’t seem to be ready for AFL yet. I accept that this is based on a few games last year and yesterday’s scratchie - not much to go on. I also appreciate that we shouldn’t expect too much at this stage and the signs are good longer term.
Shultz, Crowden and Switkowski all seem to be ahead of Henry for small forward roles and all three provide greater defensive pressure. While I think Frederick is a step behind these blokes (huge efforts but little return) he seems to also be slightly ahead of Liam.
Overall a good position to be in for depth and future potential but it will be an interesting selection committee discussion when it comes to small forwards.

My biggest takeaways from the game:
1. Wide spread at stoppages. There seemed to be a clear directive not to crowd the ball. They were always spread wide and keen to sling fast, long handballs to teammates, rather than crowding the contest then using close handball to clear, or clear with a quick kick. I imagine this is why JLo wants more pace in the team. That’s a running style, not a body or marking style. It bodes well for more free-flowing, high scoring footy.
2. Lloyd Meek can play. It’s the first time I’ve got a good look at him, and by all reports he’s come a long way. 22 and looked to beat Vardy, at the contest and around the ground. Probably not as imposing as Darcy, or as clean a tap... but better marking, kicking and pressure from what I saw. If he can back that up next weekend then I’m not sure Darcy deserves to walk into the side. And I’m a big fan of the Fridge.
3. Finally some scoring. It’s only a scratchie blah blah blah. 100+ points is 100+ points. Walters was Walters and you can’t always rely on that, but there were 9 other goal scorers and I got the feeling that any one of those was capable of multiple goals. Tabs and Lobb can kick multiple (though I’ve never seen a big bag). Fyfe can kick a few, and Walters is a gun. If a few other players can have 15-20 goal seasons then we have enough scoring power.
4. I hate the slime. It’s always a good day when we beat them, regardless the stakes.

It was Jarrad Brander who put the knees into Luke's back. A very dangerous, mongrel act. The type you expect from the mob up the road. In an official AFL game I think he would have got a couple of weeks a it was off the ball, intentional, reckless at best and there was no need for him to have gone to ground or into Luke's back for that matter. This type of act can quite easily curtail a player's career due to possible spinal or internal injuries so I think they should penalise them just as severely as a punch to the face. Typical dog act from a Weagle though.

Pro's ,
Meek was really good and I'd like him to play round 1.
Henry looks bigger stronger and way fitter than last year, play him round 1.
Tobe Watson was amazingly good , I think we've found someone here.
Treacy looks like a real old school forward, leads hard at the ball and seems to have a very accurate kick, plus he's only 18, how did everyone else miss him.
Walters looks really fit and will be a real plus in the forward line this year.

Con ,

Or should I say Conca, he was hopeless and got caught with the ball and turned it over way to many times, plus he doesn't look fit, I would rather let Watson play and make Conca try and earn a spot back in the team.

Gumnut, given Brander gets away with that gutless act, why didn't someone (who should also go unpunished ) deal out some retribution?

Thats what we need RM!, ....that'll be 'the change' that marks 'The Turning Point' , and I'm hoping we are gonna see it in '21.

We need someone to stand up and just 'retaliate' to this sort of stuff. Legal or illegal, we need someone to 'enforce'. Someone that puts the 'Fear of God' into the opposition...particularly The Toilet.

Dont know who can do that for us - I was hoping that Hodor might grow into that role....but we are struggling to get him on the park consistently enough, for him to even think about a 'bit of mongrel'.

Ok...a 'practice' practice match is probably not the right time, nor place, but neither is "a dirty great knee in the back" called for either....

I saw Tabs get so upset one day he untucked another players top from his shorts! That showed him.

Seriously though it made me laugh at the time.
