What did we learn from the purest football weekend of the season, when the four top teams are playing for their lives, when the eyes of the football world scrutinise every play, and where there is absolutely nowhere to hide? Plenty.
Ross Lyon has problems. He has to make changes to his Dockers list and playing style. Alastair Clarkson’s brown and gold boys are built from a rock-solid base of courage and full-on effort, but are topped off by a huge chunk of class and composure. They will win a third premiership in a row because they are coached by the best in the business and have superb on-field leadership from Luke Hodge and Sam Mitchell.
Brad Scott’s Kangaroos gave their all in close, but fell short for speed and finish out wide. They will, as they say, be better for the run. And Adam Simpson’s Eagles weathered a torrid first half to dig in, and with the courageous leadership of Josh Kennedy and Matt Priddis, plus the dash, creativity and skill of Sharrod Wellingham, were able to inspire their teammates to the Eagles’ first grand final appearance in nine years. Win, lose or draw, what Adam Simpson has done in less than two seasons at the helm is quite remarkable.
Fremantle’s grunt could never be questioned, but their depth of quality falls away significantly. Their last six players get exposed on the big stage and they aren’t good enough for this team to win a premiership. For all his huff and puff Hayden Ballantyne doesn’t blow enough houses down. He is too inconsistent to be relied upon. He can’t take a turn in the midfield, he can be selfish, he wastes too much time and energy creating spotfires, and as we saw in the first quarter on Friday night, because of his bad boy reputation the umpires won’t give him the benefit of the doubt.
Michael Barlow’s time is up. He has become crab-like, stopping the forward momentum of his team. His lack of pace sees him repeatedly side-step and backpedal because for him it’s the safe option. His kicking lacks sharpness and penetration, highlighted when he squandered two goal kicking opportunities in Friday night’s final quarter. Chris Mayne simply doesn’t do enough as a permanent forward. Averaging just over a goal a game for the minor premiership team represents a poor return. Next year it’s time for Alex Pearce and Matt Taberner to be given opportunities there.
Zac Dawson has been given a golden run under Lyon at both St Kilda and Fremantle, but his time is up. The big full back continually lets his team down with undisciplined free kicks and reports. And in today’s game you can’t have a player that you actually don’t want to touch the ball for fear he will muck up with it. Sadly, that’s the case with Zac. It’s tough, but Tendai Mzungu and Matt de Boer need to be replaced. They give their all but their fumbles and lack of finish are costly. The clean hands and precise kicking skills of the Hawks exposed their weaknesses. If they are kept, the temptation will be to play them, and that will stifle the creative development of this team.
North Melbourne are on the up, and if their skills can be developed to match their genuine hardness then another top-four finish beckons. Some extra speedy outside run is needed, and a fit, sleeker-looking Daniel Wells would certainly help there. Ben Brown and Rob Tarrant need to further develop their games as do taggers Sam Gibson and Ben Jacobs. It’s good to be able to put the brakes on the opposition’s best midfielders, but you need to be able to build possessions yourself. It was pleasing to see Todd Goldstein continue to shine under the ferocity of finals footy and veterans in Brent Harvey, Michael Firrito, Drew Petrie, Jarrad Waite and Nick Dal Santo all had good seasons and should be optimistic about 2016.
The Eagles were scrappy but happy in victory. I think Josh Kennedy would need to kick six for his side to have any chance against the Hawks in the big one. He could do that on Brian Lake, who wouldn’t be able to keep up with him. That’s why James Frawley needs to be given the tough assignment. In the past two finals, Frawley’s stocks have risen (and they needed to) as he has controlled dangerous keys in Tex Walker and Mathew Pavlich.
So, can the Eagle soar next Saturday? No. Here are three reasons why. One: too many young Eagles will be overawed playing in their first grand final. Two: the game will not be played at the Domain “House of Pain” – they will be out of their comfort zone. And three: the opposition is Hawthorn, quite possibly the best-coached team that any of us have ever seen.
