It was great to see Matty Kreuzer in the highlights - his mobility and ability to link up has been sorely missed - and in the post game interview.  He was obviously pleased to get through the game, even with a bit of extra time on the pine.

I read or heard Lang played limited time of HB.
Is that a new role for him?
Can he a) aid in our link up play, b) play the small forward role?
Or c) none of the above  ;)

I hope he gets fit and gives us something...

Player review up on the web site for the this round. Good signs from Stoker and we may see him make his debut soon as it seems that he is a quick learner.

He is also featured in the coaches corner.

Playing stocker this early is a tell that we have a lot of issues with small backs.

Or it's rewarding good form!

Willo well ahead of him and he's hardly going to be picked ahead of of Simmo or Daisy?

They're just pumping his tyres up....

Our defence is our shining light presently in any event....

I suspect they look to him as a small forward if he gets a run, which is ironic given they play him in defence! Possibly because Owies was ill, I would have thought Owies off the HBF and through the midfield was the better option with Stocker forward of center.

Things will change with Williamson and Macreadie back, I hope they get a good run at footy injury free.

Lachie o brien says hi.

Jack silvagni and Matt Kennedy must be wondering what they have to do to get a game.

The stats say high, like moneyball, playing forward JSoS had 6 shots at goal for 2.3 with one OTF.

Hardly the finisher we need given our recent losses!

I think if JSoS gets a run it will be as a Setterfield replacement, but I fear the timing is bad because the pace of the Dogs will show him up!

Fasolo didn't deserve a game ahead of polson

O brien didn't deserve a game ahead of anyone
 

Can we abandon this myth that players worthy of a game are getting opportunities??

The only way you could argue it is that stocker has less requirements to earn a game than the others due to length of time at the club.


Either way when you play first year players ahead of schedule (see o brien last season) they are either supremely talented and might surprise or our senior bodies are struggling and the last few matches have shown me our blokes cant play 4 quarters and match fitness is an issue.

My opinion hasn't changed, he is a bet we've placed, I'm just not sure we can afford those bets at this time. It feels too soon, I hope he proves me wrong!

To me it would make more sense for a club on the borderline of success to pick up a player like Fasolo, I see him as an icing on the cake type player not a 24x7 type. I do not think he brings the kids much, at least on the field, maybe he has prime value off the field like Lobbe, although some would now question that as well!
