Just watched the first three quarters of the replay.

Thoughts:

1. Reckon the Curnow brothers got on the piss the night before - they were either entirely MIA or pitiful.
2. Polson - at this stage, no thanks.
3.Murphy - start practising your kicking again.
4. Garlett and Plow - show a bit of intensity ffs.

Positives - Harry, Walsh, Crippa, SPS, Jones, Phillips, Weiters.

Thought Weiters stood up in some very big tackles.....he's a big man now, not a big kid.

We're still giving up cheap junk time goals - 2 in the last 3 minutes of Q3 - inexcusable....

Plenty of cruising from both sides granted.

No way in hell should ed Curnow play forward. He's a stopping mid and sfa else.

Agree on Ed...he had some poor games last season where he got towelled up but he is still our best tagger and especially vs the Tigers you need
to stop players like Cotchin and Martin, cant afford them running loose and hoping your loose players do more damage.
Weitering should be able to play in a Rance like manner vs the Tigers and intercept a lot of ball...Tigers only have Riewoldt as a genuine marking threat with Lynch unlikely and Caddy out
and he should enjoy this opportunity to throw his weight around and influence the game.
Garlett is a very iffy player to be playing on the Tiger small forwards......

Under the new rules there is going to be much less chop outs and blocking for mids, it will be interesting.

It will be interesting to see which mids fade, I'm presuming those who rely on the kindness of team-mates will struggle somewhat, and those that rise will be the self-sufficient types. So I suspect Cripps will be a big beneficiary of the new rules.

If Kennedy comes good, Ed may well get squeezed out.....

Setterfield looks like he's getting better and better every game, Dow showing signs and Fisher yet to find his groove (but no doubt will). Walsh is Walsh....

Murphy needs to hit targets much more than he does - a bloke like him should be icing on the cake....

Much to like about our midfield. It's a question of when not if it goes BANG.
