    Fullarton's a lot better around the ground than he is in ruckwork at present so if he bulks up a bit a learns how to ruck he'll be a good player. Agree McStay took a few grabs against undersized opponents and will appreciate the extra freedom.

    Mixed it up in the M/F . Not reading too much into it because Daniher and Hipwood had no real opposition but with the two of them at that height we're far more potent. The combo looks like it could work really well. Hipwood is a weapon one on one around the wings , very hard to match up on. I...

    Some guys are just unlucky. Daniher has only played a few games in 3 years. McCarthy was completely injury prone until he got up here and has hardly missed a game. It's a demanding game physically , sometimes it's just on thing after another. Let's hope Adams can string a few games together and...

    The one who looks considerably fitter is Ah Chee.

    True. There's something about Ely I've always liked in the limited things I've seen so looking forward to seeing more and hopefully he's up to it. He was a first round pick so obviously the club saw something in him that was worth investing in.

    It's a long season. I'm not writing Robbo off just because he hasn't been picked in a practice match. There's a lot can happen quickly in footy ,players get injured , lose form or not perform ,the team can struggle.

    If you could bring one retired Lion

    Who are the mongrel players we have now , besides maybe Robbo ? Best mongrels probably Micky Conlan , Les Parish , and the Scotts.

    If I can't have Voss, Roos or Aker it'd have to be someone to fill what our need is. So that would be Chris Johnson or Rendell. Quinlan would be unstoppable with the policing of today's game but as an accepted champ I guess we can't have him either.

    2021 Lions Off-season

    Neale's copped a lot of punishment in the last 2 years and though in his prime not getting any younger. So they luxury of having players step up who can take some midfield time would be a good opportunity to give him more time down back where his ability to link up will really help without the...

    2021 Lions Off-season

    One thing where I think Pythagorus has got it completely wrong is in saying you were lucky if you win a lot of close games. Anyone who's watched footy for as long as I have , or any sport at all really , knows that good teams win close games consistently. Because when the pressure's on and...

    As far as the streaming goes it would very little in my view if they are already getting vision for themselves which undoubtedly they will be. In a season where expectations are high it could lead to a few more memberships. We need all the coverage we can get. It's not killing me but I feel the...

    I remember when Ah Chee was at the GC he could really launch them but with us he's always looking for the short option. Starcevich's kicking has really improved , well he improved dramatically all round. People forget that Birchall and Rich are two of the best kicks out of defence in the game...
