Again who else is there - no one from where I sit
100%. Can’t see the point kicking it to the opposition ruckman every week basically. Don’t understand why we wouldn’t be more direct and even go opposite side to a one on one with a kick to advantage. McIntosh was burnt a few times like that on Sunday when he’d created separation from his opponent. Kicking long to a pack is a safe but non offensive option.Not sure where to put this.
But are we the worst kick in team in the Comp?
With the rule changes designed to break open the game after a point, are we the only team that has not developed a strategy to take advantage of this?
We either kick it to the pocket (including to dtld) or to a contested tall pack (which the other team normally anticipates and we are out numbered).
Other teams seem to run it out 40 meters before a long kick.
Does this drive anyone else crazy?
Rioli looked lost to me playing at half back. Either he gets back to his offensive best forward of centre or he goes. I’d simply be putting him back forward & encouraging him to run to as many contests that he can get to.What ever happened to players playing their role and playing to their strengths. Playing Daniel Rioli off half back isn’t playing to his strengths . Argue all you like !!!!
How do we know that Rioli hasn't said, if you want to re-sign me, you have to give me the chance to show my skills.What ever happened to players playing their role and playing to their strengths. Playing Daniel Rioli off half back isn’t playing to his strengths . Argue all you like !!!!
He's played a selfless role through three flags and it's common to hear neutrals denigrate him. If that's what he asked for, it's fair enough with the club out of contention.How do we know that Rioli hasn't said, if you want to re-sign me, you have to give me the chance to show my skills.
I'd imagine a defensively oriented forward pocket who is told to chase and tackle no 1, 2 and 3 priorities isn't going to command $600k on the open market.
But a dangerous running HBF who gains 400m plus per game can get that fairly easily.
He seemed pretty clued up in the sound the alarm videos of the 2020 grand final.In saying this I don't think game plan, game strategy and game evolution are his strengths. We had good assistants that took care of this area and we really had a great coaching panel with all tge pieces coming together to win 3 flags.
