- You would think Taylor will be so much better off next year. I think he has adjusted and is finding the right balance between defence and playing with some natural flair. Which is the recipe to win games. The last 2 weeks we have scored some slashing tries which were no where to be seen earlier in the year.
He came in with all these structures and probably over did it, but also laid some good ground work with his defensive emphasis. He is now starting to get Moses in games and using Tedesco more with his brilliance.
Tedesco, Brooks and Moses playing just about the full season together. Obviously Teddy has been outstanding goes without saying. Moses and Brooks have had their ups and downs but been impressed by the way they have stuck at it despite poor results and some in diffeernt football. Moses especially has never taken a backward step as the big blokes keep running at him. All these experiences will be good for them and they are only going to get better.
Continuing to compete in games. Last few years we have suffered some really, really bad efforts late in the year. Obviously we did have mass injuries other years. However it is good to see them still working hard and competing against better sides later in the year. Tonight there were some tough runs and tough tackles that would have been easy to say “too hard” late in the season on a cold monday night in canberra. Our F and A is not to bad for a bottom 4 team, we have had some bludger games but a small change in culture might be slowly coming to the surface.
2 more wins and then it at least get a decent vibe around the place going into next year, Let face it there is no recruitmnent so we have to work with what we got. And if the fans at least see some signs of progress then it gives everyone a ray of hope. Thats all you need. I don’t even think we will be contenders next year, but you would think we could improve.
The last 2 wins don’t gloss over a disspointing season. We don’t have a great roster however there is some talent here and it was not being utilised at times this season. Whether it be through tactics, poor form or confidence. However at least we look like avoiding the dreaded spoon and could even get out of the Bottom 4 if we apply ourselves the next month.
