Lions verged on the dreadful against Shepparton Swans.CHALPAT SONTI August 13, 2014 3:53am
If the loss to Shepparton Bears was awful and the defeat at Rochester was even worse, what can we say about Seymour’s 100-point humbling at the hands of Shepparton Swans on Saturday?
The kindest way might be to say it was easy to tell this was a game between second and second-last. The Lions are a long way off the pace, for sure.
But efforts such as that dished up in the second half are simply not acceptable to a club with such a proud history. They aren’t really acceptable by any side, for that matter. To see the Swans turn the final quarter into a training drill was too much.
It’s time, if the players haven’t already done so, for many to think about what they can contribute at this level and whether they are contributing. Too many times this season Seymour, for all its injury excuses (and the toll has been large), is relying on the same players, with cameos from whoever else can be bothered to turn up and play that week.
On Saturday at Princess Park Jason Cole and Harry Wheeler maintained the high standard they have set all season. Paul Colbert played his best game since coming back from his knee issues, even at the ‘‘wrong’’ end of the ground but he prevented Swans spearhead Justin Maddern from adding significantly to his eight goals. Hugh Robertson battled hard in a tough contest across half forward.
