if we go for similar replacements i would think wright and furlong.i thought we were one tall short last week.wouldn't mind haydon playing and blee being the swingman while backs and forwards resting.one thing is for sure peel will be a stronger team this week with 3 or 4 dockers back from injury to play wafl.can't afford to be complacent.

very short side.i can't remember us being so short in previous years.so long as we don't get a injury to one of our talls we should be alright.

An absolutely pathetic performance by East Perth today.
Peel was far too good but I thought some of our blokes threw in the towel in the last quarter.
The Royals won't win a game this season based on what they showed today.
I'm not privy to the club's off-season non-recruiting decisions, but it's a shame there wasn't enough room in the salary cap to make Will Schofield a decent enough offer.
I'm assuming that was the only reason Schofield didn't rejoin the Royals after his time there during the alignment.
His leadership and all-round versatility really stood out today, something we sadly lacked.
However, as St Kilda showed in the AFL today, a week is a long time in footy, so I'm hoping East Perth at least shows some pride against East Fremantle next week.
To be honest, their performance and attitude couldn't be any worse than the crap they served up today.

It is pretty hard to follow on from what Archie has said other than than to agree whole heartedly with his summary. I don't think Schofield was ever likely to join us, Perth had a chance but circumstances played a part in the decision and being married to a Mandurah girl may have been the decider.

The Ressies had a great win but what is annoying, frustrating and perplexing is when talking to a couple of them it is apparent that both teams play to the same game plan, both teams get drilled in the same skills and process but only one brings it to the table. It IS NOT about players, we have some good and very good players but it seems that when they run out on the field one team plays to it and enjoys their game and the other .............!

The colts had a good win again and next weeks game at EF promises a lot!

Wow!!!  So what happened, did you get beaten by Peel, or by the Dorkers?
2x25= Seinor and Michael = 1xBrian Peake

At a quick count, only nine Dockers in Thunder's lineup, 58shark, making the magnitude of East Perth's defeat inexcusable.
We certainly can't play that badly again (I hope not, anyhow), but your blokes certainly won't be quaking in their boots leading up to next week. 
Grump, I didn't know Schofield was married to a Mandurah girl but had heard that our club was chasing him and that the financial offer fell a bit short.
I thought Schofield was BOG today, but I don't know many other Peel players.

barney called it deplorable.only player that got any sort of praise was matthew young who he sent into the midfield.the worst defeat since the first game of 2018 when subi beat us 29 goals to 10 when we had a dozen eagles playing with us.yes peel had several dockers and about half a dozen seasoned wafl players but they also had several very inexperienced players.they played well but i think we played so badly that we contributed to them playing so well.can we get off the canvas i just don't know,obviously robbo will be back next week.suspect hayden in for watts and maybe cooley and either simpson or merritt.
obviously the only good news was the ressies having a big win as well as the colts.great to see 4 of our colts were mentioned in a group of 18 as players to keep an eye on.
