In terms of the team for round 1 it sounds we shouldn't be reading too much into the fact that Longer was getting picked ahead of Hudson in the preseason games.
Looks like you picked it Grim.
Looking forward to seeing the People's Beard playing for us.
Ben Hudson in the middle for his first game, and first win. I reckon he needed to have an excellent game to silence the 'we should have played Longer' calls. And he did.
Just a good honest ruckman Hudson, he will always give you 100% in the ruck and with his follow up work. Isn't much of a threat forward or as a link man around the ground, but he is good if the taps hit the ground.
His second efforts were amazing, and I hope they rub off on others. Her made his own clearances a couple of times.
Good to hear Ben is doing well
There was some serious sledging going on there towards the end. Can't help thinking Jamar was getting into him about being a has-been at the start, and he might have said something along the lines of 'so how do you explain me handing you your arse on a platter, you turkey'.
Outstanding clearance game - 2nd/3rd efforts. I'm sold. He's in the starting 18 and maybe Billy L. can go up forward 'cause he's a pretty good kick. Three talls ? Why not.
He seems to have lost nothing. Perhaps this year he plays 80% of games, Billy the rest and next year maybe 50/50 depending on how Billy comes along amongst other factors.
I was truely suprised at how great his tap work was. Interestingly enough he must really liek Polks, cause at least twice he knocked it straight down his throat as Polks streamed past. Very good to watch.
Billy got BOG apparently...I would think hudson would take rests thorughout the season and give Longer a run. He is a team player recruited to play a team role this year with ruck relief.
One thing for certain our ruck department looks awesome this season
Played his heart out yesterday. His tap work was absolutely amazing and his second efforts were indicative of our competitive performance. Loved watching him give Frawley an absolute serve in the last quarter, hilarious stuff.
Loved big Huddo's game, he reminds me a lot of Jamie Charman in the way he plays and is a great tap ruckman. The inclusion of him added greatly to our midfield dominance against Melbourne.
He also proved to be a handy target to kick to when we were forced to go long. He put in very good competitive efforts and often advantaged the spill of the ball to our players at ground level.
Given his form yesterday and his proven endurance, why did the Dogs let him "retire"...I gather this was in lieu of being delisted?
No, he did retire, he was done and was heading back to QLD. I don't know if Hudson would have taken the offer up with any other club, as this was a perfect fit for him. Not sure if he will go around for a 2nd year as a Lion, but what a top player.
To celebrate the people's beard 'turning back the clock'.
I believe his last name should now be changed to 'Button'
Pic definitely related
