Snelling, Francis, Mynott should all come under consideration.

Watched the game today... How is the skill level so far apart between our 2 sides?? I hope our senior players in attendance took note...but I dare say... They were more interested in getting back home to a warm hug and hot chocolate...

In the very remote event I was priveledged Enough to play at State League Level or say Essendon,I reckon I would have been up and at ‘em early in the morning watching Colts/Under 19’s,Ressies,before I suited up.Football was something I just ate.Wasn’t anywhere near good enough though,but to get that chance,........

Mind you,if The Flying Dutchman got hold of me Friday Night,I would have been dead to the world for 3 days,Lord help me! :roll: :-& :lol:

Great to see Franga getting among the goals. Even better to see the ball busting Will Snelling dominating 8) He's an absolute ripper. Won't be long before he gets a crack at senior level.

Surprised to see Mozzy not included in the free for all yesterday. Did he play?

Mozzie did play.
Apparently, even though Francis kicked 4, many said he wasn't all that impressive.

Our seconds are better than our firsts. Maybe they can lead the way and share some of their enthusiasm with our senior players.

Agree on both counts. Francis May well have to become a forward given the solid work of the back 6. As for Snelling, he shouldn’t be viewed as a project player. He was drafted as an immediate replacement for LTI players. So based on his apparently impressive VFL form, should be selected as a direct replacement for Dev Smith. What have we got to lose???

I would have to say that he should replace Walla. Need to send Walla a message. Lift your game buddy. Absolutely love the bloke, but he has laboured in too many games. 6 disposals and not much else is poor form. On the other hand, Snells gets almost 30 disposals, 10 tackles and 3 goals. Should be rewarded for that.

I doubt anyone who played Sunday will play on Thursday...unless it’s those who only played half a game.

Francis needed a game like that. Just seems to lack confidence up forward. And if he doesn’t slot one early, he seems to drop his head.

Snelly is doing everything he possibly can to get himself a game. Admire his work ethic!

Twos on the telly. It's a windblown game.

Clarke not making any case for a game in the ones. His best tap so far was along the ground. :lol: edit: Clarke improved later in Q2. Doesn't instill confidence though.

A plucky win. Snelling good in the last 5 minutes with a goal assist and a goal himself to seal it.
