Plus for Demons

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Hdfnl Finals -

The Moun­tain Men are not an overly tall side, on pa­per at least, and there is a sug­ges­tion they are lack­ing a key tall who can play in the for­ward arc and then give Martin a chop out in the ruck when re­quired.

Take Martin out of the equa­tion and the stoic but bal­anced Ger­ard Matthews is the team’s lead­ing goal-kicker.

The truth is that Matthews is prob­a­bly more suited to play­ing a roam­ing role rather than prop­ping in a key post.

An ex­tra tall key for­ward would also be of ben­e­fit to the mos­quito fleet that lurks in the for­ward half.

Daniel Grif­fiths, Am­brose Laun­der and Jack Shields are all dan­ger­ous small for­wards who can hurt op­po­nents on the score­board in the blink of an eye.

But they need a big-man ally to con­test the ball and get it to ground.

That said, there is still plenty of fi­nals ex­pe­ri­ence in the Demons’ side and they have made it to the fi­nals with the play­ing list that will run out onto the ground.

If La­harum gets a sniff, which might come from a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent cir­cum­stances, the team knows what is re­quired to win fi­nals.
