Good win. Great debut by the Egg. Great game by Bolton. Team selection gonna be interesting with Jack and Caddy possibly back. McIntosh Short and Ellis on shaky ground.
Haven't watched the game but on AFL.com.au had Ellis & Kmac in our best, are they wrong?

While we’d all take a 90+ point winning margin, I think it’s fair to say our second half was fairly crap. I’m not concerned about the score but discipline and ruthless mindset were lacking. That’s what I wanted to see and what the team needs to learn.

Pretty good effort from the boys today. Played fast corridor footy and forward line looked dangerous. None of this boundary line chipping like Collingwood. Ellis another good game. Stack forward is a game changer. Few teams above us would be very nervous!

Was great to see Cotchy back to his best. From the opening bounce he was on and also Castagna had a ripper. Nice left foot on the Eggman as well.

Dusty is one of those rare players that takes it easy when the side is cruising :D At least he got a bit of a rest.

Jack Graham must always be in our best side. He offers the ability to close down on an opposing mid that gets off the chain. He does this so much better any other player on our list. One percenters galore. Tough strong and team oriented. (Hi to Rory Sloane.)

Percentage the winner today.

Hard to really criticise or praise our players overly. Not enough pressure all over the park to make comments relevant to last week or next week's game.

Agree with you Achilles but he has to keep his game at its best. With a healthy list he might get squeezed out by a fit/in form Ross. What RFC loses in tackles it gains in clearances.

So very wrong. Ellis was OK and KMac got better in the second but there were 15 players better than them in our team.

Didn't like the interview with Ellis at half time, already talking about the Giants next week.

Not sure if we did or didn’t, however with the game over at half time we should have been able to manage certain players, get miles into the legs of the ones who have just come back and midfield time for the likes of Bolton.

Ye be a harsh laddie fastin. 78 up at half time, won by 92. Players aren't robots, and the opposition does play a part. Its a very rare flogging where the dominant side doesn't have a flat patch and the dominated doesn't give a momentary yelp. We were never going to win by 156. :cool:
