    Consistent round for most. 6/7 from Howard puts him in the lead. Tipping very strongly this year.

    On the other end, Benchmark proving he has no idea what the **** he's talking about with a horrible 3/7. Has him second from the bottom despite never missing a tipping round

    SBI, what are your thoughts on Callan Ward?

    Looks like he may have a very good year.

    He's quality. There's whispers he might go to GWS which would be a massive shame considering he's a life-long Dogs fan IIRC, but I really, really like him as a footballer. Our problem is that with Boyd, Cross, Libba and Ward we essentially have four similar footballers who are pretty similar which leaves us with a pretty one-dimensional/crap midfield.

    Discussed that with a mate after the Freo game. As awesome as Boyd and Cross are, the Doggies would be such a better unit if they could swap one of them for a Rioli or Pendlebury to add some speed and silk. Hell even Stephen Hill would do wonders for the Doggies.

    Cross is an interesting one - I suspect he's the type of player that opposition supporters rate higher than his own. He's a hard worker but not the type of player you'd want to base a midfield around. I wouldn't lose too much sleep over him if we lost him, but he's not got much trade value so it wouldn't be worth it.

    But it is clearly one of our biggest problems that we don't have a gamebreaking midfielder who can do it consistently. If Cooney was back in his 08 form that'd be great, but as it is now he's clearly struggling and has done a Rhys Palmer in that he's lost the ability to dispose well (though Palmer doesn't get the ball enough these days anyway). Cooney, Griffen and Higgins have the makings of a pretty formidable midfield, but they are so inconsistent and always drift out of games (Griffen especially) that you end up with games like last night where you dominate two quarters and kick about four goals all told.

    It's pretty obvious that with the signings of Djekuerra and Sherman they have identified the need for goal kicking midfielders, but we don't have any others in the VFL so the cupboard is pretty bare. That's the Dogs' biggest problem along with the forward line which is totally ****ing one-dimensional and the worst in the league at keeping the ball inside fifty.

    Our best chance was probably 2009 and we blew that chance so it's going to be downhill from here.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see the coaching staff put more emphasis on Cross to do what Jobe Watson has done and at least attempt to be more damaging with his disposals. Granted Watson was actually a pretty good kicker originally and Cross struggles with that, but it's not difficult to improve that facet of a person's game.

    Benchy, didn't Watson circa 2006-07 have a reputation as being an ordinary kick? I'm fairly certain of it, particularly when kicking for goal.
