I watched the game yesterday on Fox Sports.

Dillard looked pretty good in my opinion

Not a bad debut by Dillard considering he just hooped of the plane and meet his new team mates in the dressing rooms just before the game.

Too little too late Dillon. Needed to happen a month ago to give us a shot at finals run. Too many games, Sydney, Cairns slipped into the L column to try and make up now.

Tom a month ago Stockton had just joined, that was Dillon making a move. It didn't come off, like Cats and Ingram, it happens.

Stockton arrived mid November. He played round 7 v Illawarra November 18th. Played OK with 17 points. He was solid but never an impact player.
In his first 3 weeks, he played the Illawara series we lost 1-2 (2 of these at home) then we were thumped away to Melbourne, beat Brisbane(H) then lost away to Adelaide. So in the first 3 weeks Stockton was here, our W-L record was 2-4.
We went 3 and 8 while he was here. He was injured for 2 of those games.
The part of his game that I questioned was his inability to create either in the half court or with more particularly in transition. To me that showed a lack of confidence in his own game.

My point is that Stockton was not good enough to help us win even half of our regular season games. We were 4 and 5 before he arrived. We should have made the call to cut him mid December (when we were 6 and 9). Now Dillon has made that call (when we were 8 and 11, that has now become 8 and 12))and it is too late, unless we can go 7 of 8 . An impossible task, matched only this season by Adelaide.

Compared to Perth who's task now is to win at least 6 of 10. Achievable???
