I know the Sun's were woeful but the two way running and selflessness was evident.
The "contenders"are sputtering, we have found our mojo.
Look out.
I smell a premiership.

If we can turnover the Gee Whiz next week that will be a significant result going forward.

Freo getting thumped has bent them up a little, hopefully the Coasters beat up on the Woods next week and then the Giants take out their anger after we beat them on them the week after which will be good times if we then turnover the Power.

Significant two weeks coming up in relation to the 8.

Round 23 could well be a big game against Brizzy also.

I think another flag is within reach. With Nankervis, Riewoldt and probably Ross to return and with otherwise a team that should be pretty fit by Sept, we have a really good chance.
But we need to try and solve two problems.
Our ladder position .. we need to finish top 4 and we also need to find someone to play as a tall defender. Broad is not that person.
Maybe Balta is.

My goal has gone from Top 4 pre injuries to Top 8 post injuries to Top 4 again after the bye. If we squeak into the top 4 that will mean we are the form team at the pointy end. That gives us a shot. Getting the veterans back has been, and will continue to be ,critical, however just as important has been the strategy of surrounding those vets with the young indigenous kids - as they add a level of class and x-factor that we otherwise don't have in our blue collar team.

Oh East Melbourne!
Riewoldt, Nankervis, Cotchin and Lambert should all be fresh and firing for finals. Their lay offs with injury have given their bodies a decent freshen up plus it’s unveiled Stack, Bolton, Balta, Ross, Chol, Baker etc.... we might look back at these injuries being a major blessing in disguise.
