I'm hearing Weitering was injured, didn't come back after quarter time. Anyone have any news?

Ps I don't know who 47 was for us but I really liked what I saw... real presence.
Only our ruthless best, from Board to bootstudders will get us no. 17

Happened in the first qtr and appeared to be groin/hip. Hopefully just a niggle and not risked for the remainder.

Just got back from the game.
Should be read with a grain of salt considering first hit out for the year but they were pretty fair dinkum in the first 3 qtrs.
At 3/4 time we led 12.6 to 4.3. Then we rested some key players and let Rottingwood back into the game... a bit. We played all our kids for the final 2 qtrs... to avoid confusion, yes, 3 x 1/4s of 25 minutes and 2 x 10 minutes without time on.
No SPS, Martin, H, Brackets, Marchbank, Fisher, Charlie, Tractor, Macreadie, Ben Sos or Goddard... not sure on Cottrell.

The best news of the day for moi was the form of Willo... dominant and outstanding across half back.
Doc eased his way into the game nicely.
Eddie was... well, Eddie. Great stuff from him. Kicked about 3 and could have easily kicked another couple. Warmed the cockles... our forward line looks so much more dangerous with him there.
Meat was very good.
Jack was good, took him a bit to get into the game though.
Paddy Dow started in the 4th qtr and was so so.
Murph played the first 3 qtrs and was rusty but involved. Coupla turnovers didn't impress. At his age I guess he's easing himself into the year.
LOB ...still not convinced.
Simmo... is he really in his late 30s... was like a kid. Good value, good judgement.
Kennedy up forward... not convinced. Coupla nice things but...
Crippa... in 3rd gear for the game and still head and shoulder above the rest.
De Koning is going to be de sheet hot.
Stocker... long way to go.
Jones... great.
Walsh... sensational, doubt there'll be any 2nd year blues here.
Plowman, serviceable.
Weitering injured early and didn't take any further part in the game. Groin or hip?
Newman, serviceable.
Liked what I saw of Pittonet, got attitude and did okay.
Cuningham was same old... flashes of good stuff, then tumbleweeds.
Polson... yawn.
Newnes, liked what I saw. Better than serviceable.
Philp, liked what I saw... positive glimpses.
Ed... was Ed, hard at it and influential.
This Honey kid might just have something!
Finbar... someone is taking the p1ss.
Gibbons... terrific, in everything and effective until rested after 3rd qtr.
Setterfield... coming along nicely.
Owies... need to see more, but good glimpses.

My only real negative for the day (apart from Finbar and Polson and pies at $6 ea) was Lang...


Weitering's ok apparently.

Ch.7 was saying 8 terms with a few at 10 mins. They probably got it wrong again.

Thanks for the nice summary.

Thanks for the wrap Shano. Despite the usual qualifications one's mind starts to make (were the opp even trying, it's just a scratch match etc.), it's hard not to feel a twinge of excitement.

Thanks for the report Champion, much appreciated.
Dissappointing to here Cunners is same old same old
Polson meh
Lang will play alot of 2s this year then will be delisted, I have said from day one he is not AFL standard. He seems disinterested, suspect he still wishes he was at KP.
Did Ben Silvagni play?

Also a comprehensive report on the club website. (Ben apparently did play)

Three highlights for me (not being there!)
Sam Philps.  Every report I have seen has been very, very positive.
Tom Williamson.  Again nothing but praise for his efforts.
Sam Docherty.  Just a good news story.

Interesting that Newnes named second best for us, but barely a mention on twitter feed

Highlight package showed Willo kick a booming set shot goal, has a great left peg. Cant help but drool at the class he and Doc will add if they can be injury free.

GTC, he let loose with a few of them with pin point accuracy... we BlueBaggers watching him from only a few metres away, well, we drooled... the first qtr had loads of highlights (for us) but chief among them was Willo and Eddie. Easily the best first up hit out I've seen from us for years... BUT, it is February, BUT it was fkn great spanking Rottingwood for the first three 'serious' qtrs.

I liked what I saw. Kept on trying to find out who this 32 character was... don't worry, he influenced, positively, the contest.

Sorry, can't help you with Ben. 37 didn't feature in what I saw but I did leave 10 minutes before the finish... they ran out of pies!!!!!

Mate, if you'd seen Lang today you'd have driven him to KP... one way. I was disappointed in him after reports of him training so well, but in the heat he c0cked up just about everything that came near him. Maybe he was given a defensive role... on himself!!!! He succeeded.
