Thought he was outstanding early , an overall in our bests .

Nothing against Jack however hes not going to be the difference between us winning flags or not .

I like our backline gong forward I think we’ve got the talent there to win a flag , obviously our forward line MUST find another key forward in the next 12 -18 months , however that midfield is a huge problem , yes we have a few that can play roles at times , but there is Dusty, Skip and Prestia and not a lot else , those 3 are all past there best for a variety of reasons in fact as scary as it is there is a very small possibility they may all never play for the Tiges again . I see Sonsie as our only genuine mid going forward and he’s probably more your attacking type not 2 way runner , Bolton obviously as good as any one way , though will always spend a lot of time forward , Dow is one I liked early on , however his foot skills are nothing better then ok, in saying that he does have talent , he won’t be the answer however I’d like too see him trained up in a more defensive midfield role over the summer , he may just be able to add something to our mix.

No doubt Toronto is going to help , it’s where we get a couple more from that’s the question , imho if we don’t get another atleast good ones we don’t contend next year

Great game by Ross. Good to see he's formed a bromance with Sonsie as these 2 are key to driving our midfield development.

That’s a douzy of a sentence- the longest in Pre history?
