Gibcus to play forward for mine, because Balta's best football has been down back.

Balta will start forward this week IMO. Both Balta and Gibcus trained forward and Miller back. Balta and Gibcus interchangeable forward and interchangeable with Miller back if required.

He looked pissed bring subbed out for Aarts.
Thinking back it was a bad move because if he tool that mark he wouldve kicked it.

Another one on the coach. When Dimma *smile* his pants he gets desperate and does stupid things. Gibcus just needed a rest not to be thrown around the ground hoping he could win us games. Gibcus and Balta should never leave the backline. No matter what!!

Has fallen away but should only be playing back. First year player being asked to play forward and now ruck is one tough gig.

Drafted as a key defender
Ends up forward and in the ruck
Coaching that only messes with young minds

No they just wanted to sub on the matchwinner :peepwall
He looked filthy on the bench Caesar.

I thought the same thing, he's been subbed out to get aarts on. I wonder if his shoulder is injured at all.

At least it wasn't a 'minor' hamstring like Dusty's.... That costs him 5 weeks....

It’s a bloody joke. Threw him to the wolves earlier in the year by putting him on Max King in last quarter against St Kilda & now this.

We should have dropped Miller, played Gibcus back and picked Ryan.

it's weird.
put him on other big experienced bodies as well to 'learn the craft'
and, like you say, now this .... ?

Plus he looks like a natural key position back in the making. So why not develop him up back? Stop trying to make him something he isn’t.

Was in coaching hope that he was played forward. Same as playing Balta forward - more in hope. All because we haven’t recruited any key forwards.

he looked good against some of the big experienced forwards before he got tired ..

it shouldn't be the same problem as Balta, but it's become similar
