Ross should be on ball....and why was Parker at the centre bounces when he's never played there?  :banghead

But Parker did well when he was in the middle

He was competitive, gave a contest

He wasn't our worst. Actually is 1 of about 5 who can hold their head up

Garthwaite was great early, made that bad mistake in the second quarter and was beaten after that.

I would be playing both Ross and Graham in the guts. Parker was good today but can do that on a wing.

Graham is being wasted with this obsession of playing him at HF  :scream

Yep Graham needs to be primarily on ball as well....and Pickett's another one who's better in the guts.....getting smashed at stoppages, in the clearances, in the contest and we've got all these natural on-ballers playing outside roles... :banghead

It was always going to be tough to beat Geelong with the injuries we have got but I think we should have played some of the younger players. Whilst it would not have changed the result it would have given valuable experience to younger players like Dow.
