Completely agree! Another 2 failures for Tim in last shield game

Last chance for Paine in Tasmania

No way they are the 5th worst team in the league. Should make the eight and IMO are good enough for top 4 if things go their way.

I reckon you are being very harsh

2016 AFL preview series: Port Adelaide Power

Over 800 runs now with another big century against Victoria, only he 14th Tasmanian to score 800+ in a shield season

A career year for Ben Dunk

It’s pretty hard to find a “game plan at the MCG ” when you play there once a year. The group they have is fine and can play anywhere. Poor GF yes but young group who will be much better for it

Can West Coast go one better in 2016, or was 2015 a fluke?

That “journeyman T20 slogger” is leading the shield season in runs and was top 10 in the Matador. Agree he didn’t have the best BBL but credit where credit is due.

Doran is a long term prospect and there is nothing wrong with spending some time in Grade cricket to get some confidence back if they think that is what is needed.

The bigger issue in Tasmanian cricket is what to do with these out of form veterans

If that is where games are won why couldn’t. Richmond, Port, Gold Coast beat them last year? As for the Nic Nat playing full season comment! he missed games because his mum passed away last year not because of injury. Played 23 games, 20 in 2014, 22 in 2012, 23 in 2011 and 22 in 2010? So only had one year whee he missed a big chunk of games. Seems pretty durable to me?

Should be very good again and will likely finish top 2. The flat track bullies was blown completely out of proportion last year as per usual. Additions of Redden, Jetta and Eric Mackenzie will be massive as well as more improvement from guys who are at a perfect age to start dominating in Shuey, Gaff, Shepard, Masten, Nic Nat and then the improvement again out of guys like Elliot Yeo should make this team very fun to watch as well as hard to beat.

Certainly no “Fluke”

It’s a balancing act for the Tigers at the moment between giving young guys a game and developing them at shield level and struggling (as is evident) or making them score some big runs at grade level. Paine got pushed out after two games but now Triffit is struggling again.

Some big calls on some experienced guys futures coming up this winter.

Doolan has been in poor form for two years now, Doran is a good talent just needs time, like McDermott.

I like the look of Webster as well
