Inside 50 and clearance count neck to neck.

Just shows every midfield needs a balance between grunt and good users.

Tyson, Viney, Jones, Brayshaw, Oliver, Harmes all highly below average in that regard, actually looking across the board they have very few good disposers

They should go hard at Gaff, if they trade in Gaff I'm taking Gaff for SC next year

Interesting game for the finals.

I ssupect we may have to consider Moore to play a sweeping/intercepting role on Vardy.

JJK-Goldsack
Darling-Howe/Langdon
Vardy-Moore

Moore can also follow Vardy into the ruck if necessary.

Mayne will play a defensive role on Mcgovern

Structurally West Coast has always countered our game plan, and it's costed us despite us playing better in the games before. Hope 2 losses is enough for Bucks to adjust and learn from his mistakes.
was just thinking the same thing , with JJK , Darling & Vardy we will be stretched and if Howe is questionable we will need Moore (hopefully he can get his head right for a GF)

Goldsack , Howe , Moore + Crisp , Greenwood , Langdon , Maynard looks like Aish misses out.

the only other option would be Reid in defence possibly ???

interesting Mayne was used in defence last night but did the job on McGovern after quarter time last time we played

WCE certainly play a kicking , marking game so be interesting

man on man , run , chase and tackle

need to win the contested ball and clearances

pressure the ball carrier so they get entries into the F50 under pressure

very true , been the question around their efficiency and polish all season

Adams , Sier , Treloar have the same questions about them if we are honest.

Need to get the ball in the hands of Pendles , Sidey and Varcoe as often as possible or play the zig-zag running handball up the corridoor game style

The 3 Ruckmen look like struggling to score 170 SC between them.
You don't see that too often.

He's been huge, just needed Priddis and Mitchell to bugger off and give him a crack at it in the middle.
Yeap, especially once Gaff is out, Redden has been playing the Gaff role of 35% inside 65% outside and really thriving upon it.

Sheed has also stepped out majorly
