    Jacob's losing a ruck contest where he was the only one allowed to compete summed up his ruck work yet again
    OBrien should be more then ready for a call up, but hes your classic rickman with no ability to kick it. I hope we target Grundy at season's end.

    I totally forgot to add that, was meaning to, it basically summed it up that when he was the only ruckman he still found a Pie!

    Grundy was just immense - not only in his ruck work but also his follow up and ability to get involved in link up play. He's basically playing the roll of a very tall midfielder.
    Grundy was immense, he's basically doing what Kreuzer did last year right now, if Goldy is bad again then have to think about grabbing Grundy, he seems to have the blessing of CD this year after years of being their red headed stepchild in the rucks.

    Re: Round 4

    I definitely give Collingwood the credit here. They were superior in the team composition, effort, coaching and execution. Hell of a display by them in trying conditions.

    We were so lifeless though, absolutely abysmal and it isn't like this is the first time this team has put out performances like this. Against North last year, the Grand Final and for a half vs Collingwood last year. We have a habit of struggling to stop a run on and honestly the desire to turn it around looked lacking for all but 10 minutes in the third quarter.

    Adelaide is without a lot of what made us work last year, notably a healthy forward line and midfield. We're pretty banged up all over the joint, which isn't to make excuses because we were so god damn abysmal Carlton would have beaten us last night.
