Good return despite lack of stats but someone had to miss out due to the West Cokers inglorious wipe out.

End the Stack farce. He's not a forward and we are wasting our time and his talents forcing him to play there.
Put him back in defence where he belongs, where he can be AA. Was finding some great form there last year which the MC seem to have forgotten about. Move Baker back to the fwd line if we need to make room.

MoJu showed us in two weeks everything we lack when Baker plays forward.
That's very hard to sustain though. Especially for some one like Stack. There's no forward in the comp that can maintain that level of pressure for an extended period of time. Daniel Rioli was the last bloke to do so but that eventually broke him.

Yeah went to the game yesterday (had kids so only half watching) but he should have been moved on-ball (or even defense) in the second half.

Was wasting away in starvation corner. Bloody tough role to play when getting beat on a windy day.

Exactly.

Throw him in the midfield. Do something.

Terrible game style.

Thought we were really poorly coached in the second half.
When things weren’t happening for us, especially from centre clearances, no significant changes were made.
Why weren’t RCD and Stack bought into the middle? Box Hill were literally walking it out every single time.

Agree leave Aarts to rot away in fwd line and let our young blokes sink or swim in the coalface

Not too mention Aarts had a massive facial injury. Tough lad but last thing he was going to do was put his head over it in the coal face with that egg. Strange move for sure.

Noah Cumberland got two goal shots within a couple of minutes by cleanly taking Sydney Stack fumbles. More of Cumberland on his thread. But the fact is Stack got hands to the ball before Cumberland. For no possessions.

Stack and Cumberland are marking smalls. Rare birds. Rarely successful. Cumberland played ground football. Or football, if you prefer.

Sydney made some good aerial contests (took a chest mark and held two others) and won a couple of ground balls. He ran to receive in bursts and laid one effective tackle. 12 touches. Did not score.

If Sydders can get it together he will get a chance in the ones. But he has to find the handle. And he has to excel in the role that is open in the seniors - small forward. It would be a help if he could lay a few tackles.

Cumberland took a big head knock and still kicked three. Threw himself at a spoil in the dying minutes of the game. He is a year younger than Sydney.

*smile* is getting real for Sydney. And his confidence is nowhere near right. He still has time but it's running out. We all wanted him in for Dreamtime but that looks *smile*. Four hard-running weeks with head over the ball. Taking the tackle. Halving contests. Taking front position on the lead and not running under it. Hard chasing. Smothers. Tackles. Heat.

Sydney has to get his hands dirty.

So the VAFA match where he played well was when he played onball right?
It was only a pickup knockabout game of skins vs shirts But he did all that.
Was it just to build fitness or is it to build his game.

We selected him in the ones 2 weeks later.
And on his return to the amateur division he is playing as a small forward?
Lets have him starting onball this week
