Obviously doesn’t have himself in SuperCoach. Went backwards from halfway through the third when we needed him most. Looked the goods before that.

50 games this week as pointed out by brutus76 in the preview thread. So *bump* and a thread title.


And while I'm here;;


From the Sydney game I assume you mean?

Could you please post quarter by quarter, I feel his best work was Q1 and Q2 when he was at half back

The worry is McGrath has spent more time back than in the midfield in the last two weeks - He needs more time in the midfield to determine if this is his best position.
Disagree, think we need him down back at the moment and to push McKenna upfield. Don’t think we need to rush him playing full-time mid at all, he’s damaging off the half-back line with clean ball use and can actually use his run with some space in front of him.

He’s not an explosive 3-4 step kind of player like Shiel is (yet anyway) and think he’s a lot more valuable off half back for the time being.
