Oops Yep a good spine is a good thing but according to most we had an ok defence, a good mid field and according to most a FF so it is really only the CHF.  

Having said that even when were playing ok we did know what to do and where to go when challenged, when we were getting beaten we did know how to turn it around which by any rational thinking suggests that the players did not KNOW and did not have a game plan that they could follow but hey if ya reckon the finals beckon great but I do not think we are going to have a final 8 this year!

No we don't have a spine,and as for game plans its probably a bit beyond your comprehension,but time will be the final arbiter,and i will be proven right and you'll be proven wrong,and Jeremy Barnard will be coaching next year and beyond.

RLL I hope you're correct in your predictions but sadly based on what I know and hear it might not be as easy as you think. Even our good players struggle with what the coach has in place and I think the club agrees hence the Coaching director role, that to me is an indication Barnard needs a fair bit of help. But hey as I said a final 8 might solve Perth and our issue! Oh and question for you, if the media is to be believed and we and Perth are being lined up to get WCE players on a loan basis how will you react to that, will the games we win or lose be down to that change or something else or as someone else said you will not be following the club as you did in the alignment period

Grump even if we take four Eagles I think RoyalLucky will be long gone again. On the issue of our spine we have a ruckman and that’s about it.  Chaddy22 might rate Simpson but he is generally a shocking judge. Game plans are a guide to give coaches something to do during the week. Good players win games regardless of anything else. Football comes down to winning one on one contests.

R2019, yep the plan is a guide but they help players to react in situations and allow players without the ball to have an idea what the next move maybe, good players will win games and the one on ones but they still need motivation and that is down to the coach as not all players have self motivation, they may competitive but often the edge comes from the team and the coach.

As for the spine I would start with North at FB, Eaton at CHB, Ramsay at C, and Merrit at FF and just leave them alone and build from there, CHF is the issue!

I can’t read all of your message Grump not sure who your CHB is. For me North is not big or agile enough and lacks the quality to play on good forwards. Certainly can be handy on a third tall on the flank. Watts is slow I’m not convinced and Fullgrabe has the size but long term his body will not hold up. 
Merritt leads well with nice hands but like Simpson is slow when it hits the ground. The club definitely needs some top quality key forwards and backs. 
I’m talking from the point of view of challenging for a flag. Our current list can win 6-10 games not enough for me but maybe Chaddy etc are happy with that.

Eaton at CHB and whilst I do not agree wholly with you abt the players mentioned, not sure we can get replacements for 7 or 8 players so working with what we have at the moment. 

Challenging for finals and once there being able to progress is the only acceptable outcome for me and I think all Royals supporters.

Yes fair enough can’t solve all our problems at once we need to get the best out of our own.  Eaton impressed me in the last few games but not the size for key position long term.  
We are all in the dark about the new points system but I see Schumacher, Scott, Simpson, Robbo and Watts as players that might be moved on.

Schumaker, no, watts perhaps, robertson mmmmm not sure unless his head is the right place, Simpson for me yes but who then do you replace him with. I honestly cannot seem him improving unlike Cooley who I think will get better next season

RL2019 my post was to show how eddie eccentric people are like yourself .yes he has deficiencies but he is the best of  very average talls.why just sledge him when you can include merritt,sebit,ajang and even dobbo who were all poorer this year.if we get rid of eddie i can't see which of our talls will step up.easy to say lets  recruit two tall forwards but who and how..as much as we would all like to win a premiership our days when we could go and recruit madly are over.we have a points cap and a salary cap and you need to recruit wisely.if we had no points cap and no salary cap and with our financial situation we could buy a team but be bankrupt in a decade.we recruited a lot of good players both from interstate and locally between 1995-2005 but our recruiting since has been ordinary.
