loss to legs

Post by Gazz on Sat Jul 29, 2017 5:36 pm

Two losses to Norwood,should we be concerned?. I missed The Parade game but todays effort was dismal. Sturt didn't bother us last year until GF day
so if we are lucky enough to win through again and we play Nwd that is a plus. The bye and some players needing a gallop before finals will take some
decent management and we need to find some fluency in our game as well to be a serious contender. Your thoughts?

PS i must admit i thought we would finish around 5th this season

Why was Jake C playing B grade. Thought he was one of our best last week. N0 18 Minney. Too short for SANFL and not good enough. The result flattered us.

Think the toss was important today, they won it and got pretty much 3 quarters with the breeze, although it did blow across the ground a bit. Once the rain came they were in a good position to play their game and deserved to get the win.
The player management probably started today with Pup and Wundke coming back, they have missed about 5 or 6 weeks and with the bye coming up they probably had to have a run today, at the same time Pooley and Paddy have had an opportunity to have an extra week off.
We havent had a full strength side for whon knows how long, to get to the position we are in is a mammoth effort, and while it sucks to lose today we are still 3 games clear on top.
Couple of interesting things from today, Dean Terlich had a bit of a go at Wundke for his effort in a contest near the bench then late in the game had a pretty selfish shot on goal which missed when he could have kicked to a teammate in the goal square, didnt effect the outcome but theres no I in team. Also the post match celebration from their players today seemed a bit over the top, moreso after the post siren goal, recall Glenelg doing something similar a few years back, not sure they have beaten us since.

On a positive note congrats to the ressies boys today, it's been a tough couple of months but they have played some good footy in patches today their second half was pretty strong and they got the result.

Really poor selection...missed Jake C's run..too many plodders...I do not want to see Haylock Minney or Summerton in A Grade again this year

Jake C's "desperation" is something that just cant be taught. It's good we've had the chance to look at a few at league level though which didnt happen that much last year. Not the end of the world today but hopefully it wont happen again with a stronger side, whips cracking and playing for sheep stations. Make no mistake Norwood built for weeks earmarking this game to knock us off, question is did we build for weeks to knock Norwood off? I dont think so and that's a curse being top of the tree.

Overuse of hand ball in windy wet conditions Dumb
The less said about that performance the better
Might be a blessing to get that one out of the way before the real stuff start

I wouldn't be too worried about the loss to Norwood. I have felt this coming for 5-6 weeks, we've been struggling a bit. I feel it should fuel our determination if we meet them in a final, just like Sturt did to us last year. The week off should be quite refreshing for most players. It is a bit of a bitter/sweet break as Pup and Wundke could really do with the run.
Jake C's demotion would not have been for his lack of endeavour, but probably to give him a chance to find more of the ball to get his confidence up. I thought one of either Minney, Gaffney, Haylock or Comma would be left out of the 21.
The coming together of our best team has not and will not happen if Rowntree is considered to be in the best 21. At the start of the season we had 15 of last years grand final team available for selection but having the 15 play in the same team has not happened - the best was 13 players for the first 7 matches, this has been eroded to 10 for the last 4 matches. As has been mentioned, expectations from supporters was not to make the finals or just sneak in. I always thought this would be a suck and see season but has turned out considerably better. The club has had a really good look at it's cattle and should be well placed for the next few seasons. On Saturday I think there was 12 outs and 12 ins for the U18's this is great exposure for many aspirants.
The loss of college football players and good numbers opens up opportunities.
Next year let's hope Jake V B is back and Jack Lukosius has developed enough to play league and it would be nice to have Jimmy T. back'
At the presentation of awards coach Godden said "Norwood don't win well" I assume this referred to the leg's after siren celebrations. I think this will be put in the memory box.
Clubs Best:
1) S Lewis
2) N Hayes
3) L McGregor
4) P Stewart
5) L Thompson
6) J Sinor

Good feedback Wimpey. The player best are the usual suspects. We need to start seeing some newcomers in that list. We have some good players coming back and the weeks break will do no harm.

Jake C had some good possessions in the 2's. Young Weed had a few touches as well. How is Cam Giles going? His stats look ok but is he playing enough?

Cam is getting better every week, has strung 4 or 5 games together now so fingers crossed he can get through the last 2 two's games and have a strong pre-season. As it is highly unlikely the 2's will make the finals he may be a chance to continue training with the league squad just in case, we don't have alot of big bodies.

He has played seconds one or two games
Might be late this year or next
Still needs time to mature I think
But then Gods might bring him up

goddy11 - had a look at it yesterday. Followed most of his career and watched many of his games. Is a rare talent, great hands, supurb mark, good pace and excellent footy brain.
Think he could just about make it as a tall (6'4") on baller (AFL) rather than a forward, as he is still very slight.
Thought they would be grooming him for next years league season but wouldn't surprise me if he snuck in a league game this year. Ronnie would have played him as a surprise in a final.

Yes, will be the equivalent of the great Neil Hawke, champion footballer and cricketer but he may have to choose

Jack's already made the decision to concentrate on football. His bowling action caused numerous problems with his back last season.
