having Ralphsmith go back allowed Baker to move up the ground in the last, which was close to a match winning move.
he may not be there on GF day when we hold the cup up, but should be kept in for a good run of games now.

He’s the new, young, smaller version of Kaps McIntosh. Runs hard all game long, good here … not so good there…competitive.

He’ll stay on the list for a while yet, unlike one or two others in his age bracket.
I was hoping he would be our new Kane Lambert, but yeah. Looking a little more like Kmac

His desire and speed showed up lastt night even though he made mistakes.
seems the type that will learn quickly and he does little one percenters .
keep him in.

He made lots of mistakes. Looked a bit feeble early. The use. Ouch. But he keeps running. He got us the outnumber a dozen times. And eventually cracked in.

6 turnovers. 1 score involvement.

He’s better than Parker who we trialled in the outnumber role.

He’s got some characteristics. And improved as the game wore on.

Yeh, his running was great. His decision making should improve with more exposure at the level. Not sure where he plays, I really like Pickett/KMac prowling the wings. Can he play half forward and do a lot of defensive running ala a Neal-Bullen?

I'm a supporter but thought he was a bit out of sorts tonight.
Wasn't clean wit his ball handling and the pressure seemed to get to him.

Keeps working and keeps presenting.

Once he thinks he belongs at AFL level, he's gonna be handy

Needs to improve the panic rushed turnovers. Plus he Needs to be more physical at the contest. Perhaps he doesn't want to get his lovely hair messed up...

His disposal is poor at the moment. If he wants a long career he needs to improve that a hell of a lot.

Endeavour was there as the game grew, but his skills and decision-making left a lot to be desired.

Our young outside players found the going difficult in the swamp tonight.

Melbourne winter evenings are more suited to the muckers than the gliders.

Hugo and Judson will be instrumental against Geelong. Speed kills. Particularly the elderly.
