57-27 at h/t. Really strong breeze picked up in that quarter - we struggled to make the distance with a couple of kicks at goal, while there’s have been sailing through. Markov and Baker have both been good.

65-43 3q/t - didn’t take enough advantage of the wind as we kicked several behinds and then lets the dogs the length of the firldfor a goal. We’re not coming back from this.

Balta played in the first half, but wasn’t sighted in the 2nd. I’m guessing he was injured as we ended up with Garth in the ruck, which doesn’t seem like a deliberate strategy.

Yeah, was injured early according to @RichmondVFL twitter
yep at the game Balta injured in 1st quarter. Beasley also a late withdrawal so defence was light on. Oleg played F/F out of the square very lively and led well. Bakes got my best, Higgo and CJ ok shame about the rest

Baker clearly best - played half back.

We were very small up back with Beasley not playin

Balta off injured early in second.

Marcov look dangerous up forward

RCD & Naish were quiet

Aarts also didn't play
