Should this list have been a top two or top four threat in 2019? We can all agree that’s wishful thinking. But I’d imagine most of us can also agree it should be eons better than 1-5, with a percentage of less than 70. 69.9 to be exact. Not nice.
With any lingering, last-gasp optimism for North’s 2019 snuffed out by yet another loss in Adelaide, now seems like an unfortunately perfect time to chart how it all came to this just six rounds in.
Just to get the obvious out of the way first, yes this is a post about Melbourne on a North Melbourne blog.
When 6-6-6 was introduced for 2019, the cue card talking points centred around it being an attempt to create space and promote attacking play.
