Not sure if WA had many players unavailable but it was a decimated Victorian midfield with Baird, Valenti, Selwood, Pinwell, Marcon, Prismall and Jolley all unavailable. I'm guessing only Baird didn't wish to play which is fair enough given his age.

Victoria ran out of legs on the big ground.

It never ceases to amaze me of the arrogance of the current VFL that they think they can throw a team together and hardly train, arrive a couple of days from match day like the REAL VIc teams did in the past and expect to beat a good WA side easily = just deserts! Good to see the Sandy boys do OK.

Agree with that Billy & I said so last week.
Hard to justify how the coaching panel & leadership group
were put together. All very quickly slapped together in haste.
Consideration in future should be to select players that are in form & prepared to put their heads over the ball.
Too many boundary riders in yesterdays team for me.

I can bloody well name them alright Jason & I thought that it was very obvious if you watched the game.
Putting names to them on these forums will only get me into further trouble.
What was your summation as to where the Vics went wrong & PLEASE don't mention Baird, Pinwill, Valenti, Prismal,Jolley, Selwood etc being missing.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

Will watch the full replay of the game during the week. Watched bits and pieces yesterday. The VICS DO NEED to have a few sessions under their belts and take the game seriously. Sangropers coach Marc Webb ex zebras ?? Paul Johnson another ex zebra who won a Liston. Amazingly better crowd at the SA v NEAFL game than at Northam.

Come on Digs name your boundary riders. If you're not prepared to name them you're putting all the players in a bad light. Either name them or delete the comment. From what I saw every VFL boy tried his best

I certainly will not be retracting any comments or deleting statements. I thought you might have "observed" who I was referring to.

I have watched the replay of the state game until the start of the third quarter. Michaliedis has got great goal sense and very quick. The Vics weren't playing too bad to half time. Marigliani got plenty of the ball. Butchered a few kicks but still effective and hard at it. Lowrey and Lloyd the dolphin pair are set for good year and will be vital for the dolphins in 2014. Skiora gave a boot to the opposing ruck but was hobbling himself. He is a big and hard to play against in the ruck. Will watch the second half tonight where the sandgropers finished too well. Loved the story at half time on the mad collector. He has lots of WA budgets, jumpers and other memoribila.
