    ELLIOTT - best game this season. Long minutes, tackled well, looked to promote the ball instead of taking a settler. Surprised
    LICHEA- has surprised me. Much more inventive since his stint in reserves. Running much direct & making better decision from dummy half
    COGGER getting better each game. Needs to be closer when handling the ball. Also too many kicks are uncontested
    WAKEHAM. a bit tentative but made a few classy decisions. Will only better better. More of a ball playing halfback.
    MMontoya/Meaney- not providing any firepower. Need to replace.
    DZW- Having more impact as he learns the bulldog system.
    RFM/OGDEN- Love to see them get more game time, as both are impact players that have to potential to influence the momentum of the game

    Yeah, definitely don't get the hate for Holland. I would much prefer him over Montoya. Just go look at some of the work he did earlier in the year and last year. Offloading machine and can combine with R.Smith very well. It's not like Montoya is much of a defensive improvement over him.

    Dallin Zatene-Welezniak has been really good for us this year.

    I do, Holland has been absolutely shit for us every game this season in first grade and the reggies. He is a turn style in defence and lacks potency running the ball, also hasn't added anything more to the teams performance then his replacements have done to date. If he wasn't a goal kicker you'd put a permanent line through his name.

    I think you mean Toomaga, not RFM
    I literally agree with everything you've said, I think Montoya was better then usual, but the whole team was playing well.

    Definitely disagree. He is actually rather good in attack. I would have him over Montoya anyday.

    Yup fair comment, not sold on Eliot even if he has a good game every so often..!!

    DWZ has been the best signing.

    How does DZW make you feel?

    Lichaa has gone. Has been replaced by Micheal Lichea.

    I disagree with your DWZ comment only. The players are learning from him not the other way around. I don’t know how we ended up with him but god I am happy he is here.

    Admittedly only 2 games so far but DWZ is playing much better than he has for years. Is it possible that he is playing better due to the environment. the payers and coaching staff around him? We ended up with him because he wanted to come and play for us, despite what some would have us believe, we can attract a decent level of player.

    I won’t argue with you there. Any change of scenery for him would have helped him but it very well could he down to the staff at our club.
    Hopefully we can pick up a couple more of his quality before next season.

    2018 holland yes. 2019 holland www absolutely crap. Embarrassing to have him starting in a fg team. Montoya isn’t far ahead of him though

    Lichea has one good game a year when his head is on the chopping block. But if he plays for the remainder of the year like he did on Friday night, then I’m happy to look stupid.

    Licha has had enough chances, seems to only aim up when there is a contract on the line. Not sold on elliot, he still hasn't proven to be a consistent performer. Cogger Wakeham and Ogden have upside so it will be exciting to see what they become, however this growth should be done in reserves not first grade, which is why we are currently 15th on the ladder.

    Statements like this point out my theory you get paid by Dogs management to come here and spread their positive propaganda.
