Re: 2023: A review Reply #30 – October 04, 2023, 05:43:35 pm Quote from: ElwoodBlues1 on October 04, 2023, 03:53:41 pmYou tend to bomb long when you have a lot of tall timber, smaller forward setups tend to have the ball run into them more.Lose a tall and we might play bit smarter given the extra talls are a get out of jail kick for players who dont have the vision or lower their eyes enough when taking the ball deep I50. When you've got two of the best contested marking forwards in the competition, long bombs into the forward 50 must be part of the armoury. Most of our goals this season came from long bombs inside 50 but that doesn't mean that we abandon other avenues to goal. Our gameplan relies on our strengths and should only change if our strengths change. Our ability to hit up players like Owies, Martin and Cottrell in space inside 50 was outstanding and we set a new world record for goals kicked from centre clearances. We haven't quite nailed the opportunist/crumbing small forward or the forward with blistering pace.We were ranked first for contested marks in 2023 ... but that includes intercepts and clunking long kicks down the line.
