West Coast Eagles v Richmond Tigers (APRIL 29, 2012)
ACCURACY: If there is one criticism that I can put on the Eagles this year is that they have been wasteful in front of goal. You wouldnt think it with the winning margins they have had in the first few rounds, but these could have been much bigger had they converted a few easy shots that they missed. When they come up against teams that are stronger than Greater Western Sydney, Melbourne and Western Bulldogs, this inaccuracy could come back to bite them, as it almost did against Hawthorn.
TACKLING: The Eagles came out all guns blazing this week to defend their frees-for count by saying they simply tackle better then their opposition. There is no denying everybody will be watching this technique and how they go about evading tackles during this match and they need to play smart and make sure they dont do anything too noticable and too illegal.
QUINTEN LYNCH: He is going through a bit of a rough patch lately. He had just 7 touches against Hawthorn, 12 against GWS and 13 against Melbourne. Slowly he is picking up less of the ball. I dont care how well he has played in the past, if he continues this low output in the new two games, I would drop him to the WAFL to get some form. The Eagles have enough depth to cover a player who isn’t doing enough on the field.
