Silvagni needs to play the next 35 games. ;)

Seriously, he's one player who has taken the next step this year.
Gives 100% effort.
His forward pressure is really good (always has been) but...
He is starting to break tackles or stand up in them and get the ball clear.
...and surprisingly looks to have gained a yard in pace.

Agree, far from our worst tonight

3 kicks, 1 Handball, 2 Tackles.    Great goal yes, but I certainly wouldn't be calling that good for a small forward in side that had 29 scoring shots.

Betts is an interesting one.
I missed the first half of the first quarter
Apart from his goal and attempted high flyer I didn't notice him much.
What he does provide is really good pressure in the forward line...and he takes a player who needs to keep a close watch on him.
I suspect he may also do a bit of organising in the forward half.

Is that enough?

Laughable comment.

A small forward feeds when the ball hits the deck....

everything went harry's way - who should have kicked 12.

There simply wasn't enough crumb for any small foward/

Yes agree. Not sure if he's faster or the same, but he's a pure footballer, as I've stated before. Love him on the park.

Guv should come in but who backs up in the  ruck?

He makes us a better side, though granted he has been far from hs best since coming across...

Jones?
Leave Jones in the backline, gotta get that back 6 settled and playing in unison. Leave H fwd as he is the man and not a ruck (part time or other wise). Levi ether crashes and bashes with Pitto or OMac does. Dow can make way for Gov providing Gov has enough km in the legs, no rushing players in for the sake of it.
2017 - 16th
2018 - Wooden Spoon
2019 - 16th
2020 - dare to dream? 11th is better than last I suppose
2021 - Pi$$ or get off the pot

Chris Judd said the small forward is the hardest role to play these days. You do a lot of unrewarded chasing and no one kicks to you.

Loved Cotrell's game, he's just a competitor.

Yes, it was good seeing him out there, and I'm not sure you could say he played badly per se, but he was very much a minor player I thought. He either didn't do much, or didn't have much to do.

Can't argue that....Jones was elite today.

But if Guv for Levi happens, someone needs to spend time as a back up ruck....

Betts is better than Fisher by some margin as a small forward....

Jones went really well in the ruck before his recall a few years ago. Ran around like a madman killing opposition players, taking marks, getting a heap of touches and even kicking goals. Levi's not fit so right now he's essentially just a 2nd tap ruck. Whether it be Jones or Harry it's just a few minutes a qtr. The day Charlie comes back we'll have no choice anyway as he'd likely replace Levi.
