Egan still makes no attempt to dispose of the ball when tackled. It’s funny how the umps seemed to ping her when she was wearing navy blue 🤔
I didn’t think that she had much influence on the game and was surprised when I checked her stats. Our girls seemed to enjoy tackling her.
Sarah Hosking played well but Jess was quiet. Of the three, Sarah is the only one who would improve our team.
It was a disappointing end to a game that started so well. Richmond’s ball use was direct and efficient while we faffed around. We did string together some great chains of possessions only for them to end with a poor disposal/decision in the forward line. Having a genuine key forward target would have helped.
We had far too many handpasses that missed targets, took too long to reach the target and/or didn’t create an advantage. Often it was lack of numbers in front of the ball that resulted in defensive handpasses and turnovers.
