This week I’ll be looking at each of the top four sides and the legitimacy of their premiership contention in the 2nd Annual Finals Dossiers. First up, it’s Brisbane.
With a remarkable 11 delistings, a quarter of North’s list disappeared in one fell swoop. To cut this deep, this early appears to mean plenty more wheeling and dealing to come.
It’s time for week three of the line-by-line look at North Melbourne. First it was the forwards, then the defenders, and finally a look at the midfield.
Over the final month of the season, I’ll be using each game to look at a separate line of the field. Round 14 was all about the forwards, Round 16 is all about the defenders.
Considering North Melbourne just lost by 63 points with only seven fewer inside 50s, it seems an opportune time to focus on just what happens when there’s minimal forward pressure
Of the 22 North Melbourne players who ran out onto the Gabba on Monday night, 10 are out of contract at the end of this season.
Schedule losses, an unusually deep defence and contrasts between good and bad kick-mark feature in Round 13's Notebook.
Unbelievably, we now have to endure three whole days without football, which is disgraceful. But at the end of 20 consecutive days with football, we may be starting to see some ladder separation.
First things first, an apology for no post last week. Thankfully there's a post this week with plenty to discuss both from a team and individual perspective.
Another two excellent matches in Round 11, even with the compressed schedule, leads us into a handful of vital clashes in Round 12. But before then, what caught the eye over the last few days.
