Not much to say abt the game, scrappy at best, messy and chaotic ut we won and I suppose won well enough to engender some belief in the playing group,

Once again the backline (for me cos possessions is not a measure, effectiveness is) was the standout with Jacob Msando showing his credibility continues to rise along with the other boys, great teamwork and strength!

Mr Jones was clearly the best ruckman out there, Vardy was just not effective and at times his disinterest was there to be seen!

Ok the mids got lots of the ball but I reckon Bennet Copping could have got 20 against WCER.

I do not often berate and opposition player but Jordan Busher showed why EP said goodbye to him and he can only get a game at the top end of MRP, what a gutless act running through Hille, after the mark was taken, after the siren and from abt 10 metres away!

You sound a bit disappointed with your boys Grump, but they got 4 more points than the Sharks!
2x25= Seinor and Michael = 1xBrian Peake

58 not so much disappointed in the win, season so far but as I said a win is a win and we need to take them where we can. 

We play Claremont next so .......... but more on that later.

just had a nightmare when you mentioned copping.i think we did over possess the ball and that flattered a few players.the fact that busher and a few ammos get games at beagles shows how bad they are.in saying that apart from hutchings they had very few that actually touched the ball.great to see jack cooley redeem himself after a very poor game last week.

I thought the rain did East Perth a favour because it forced us to kick the ball long rather than fiddle around before inevitably coughing up possession.
Notwithstanding that West Coast's WAFL team is pretty ordinary at present, we played some reasonable footy in the last quarter to boot seven goals after kicking just five in the first three quarters.

our last quarter was excellent considering the conditions.we got goals due to quick transition.we actually handballed to players on the move or in the open instead of handballing back sideways or to a player with the oppostion by his side.

Spot on Chaddy
For once in the last quarter the mids didn’t fiddle around stating up chipping backwards and sideways alike, got it in quick and the forwards scored
Pretty simple

So if we can do that in the last quarter of this game and the last game against SF why do we play the way we do the rest of the time.

One game was against VG opposition and the other was against a team even Gold Coast could beat.

It needs to be every quarter, every week and it isn't.
