Re: AFL Rd 24 2023 Post Game Prognostications Carlton vs GWS Reply #45 – August 28, 2023, 04:26:32 pm I think the purpose of the game was to ensure Charlie won the Coleman and to get game time into Cerra, McKay, Walsh, McGovern, Durdin and to rest Cripps, Docherty and Pittonett. It would have been good to win but GWS wanted and needed to win more. I thought Cerra, Walsh and Durdin got better as the match wore on and losing Acres in the third didn't help. I thought Marchbank was good when he came on but our team balance got out of wack.We got smashed in the centre clearances though Dow was probably our best. Overall we were off. We gave two goals from 50's and Fisher cost us a goal coming out of the back. Owies and Durdin both missed from 15 metres and I still don't know how Hollands goal was overturned. Since Collingwood whinged about Charlie getting free kicks our key forwards haven't been getting much protection from the umpires. Hopefully we can tighten up over the next couple of weeks.
