A terrible display is all that comes to mind. On Saturday morning we all had our hopes up, thinking we really were a genuine chance to play some decent footy and being ready to gear up for finals. Now we’ve been thrashed and once again we’re almost certain to miss September action.
Some serious changes need to be made at the club to make this work, because 2017 seems so long ago now. Some of the boys were better than others, but we had so many passengers this week. There were however, some great moments from individuals, but not enough as a team to make our game play work.
Three Best Moments
Hartigan’s second term spoil to save a certain goal
He’s been under plenty of heat lately but Hartigan played one of his better games in recent times this week and this classy defensive effort was the best of it.
The Fog’s long goal
Showing plenty of potential is Fogarty who looks entrenched in the side.
Eddie Bett’s 600th goal
The legend himself slammed home number 600 this week, Eddie Betts you are a champion
Players of the Week
Brodie Smith: Provided good run and carry and collected plenty of footy
Darcy Fogarty: Three great goals and plenty of energy once again from the prodigy himself
Paul Seedsman: Racked up plenty of ball in his 100th match and played a great game to get back into the side.
Daniel Talia: Collected lots more possessions than ordinary but played very well and consistently as always
Let’s look ahead to the Bulldogs next week and hope we bring a very different brand of football.
