Great stats.Jack ranks Top 5 at the club in:
- Ground ball gets
- Tackles i50
- Pressure acts
I may have said before in this thread, but ground ball gets, tackles in the F50 and first possession from a contest in our f50 are vital to current form and were severely lacking when we were down early this year.
I particularly noticed at the ground when we played Pies & Dons.They waltzed it out of our backline to score after our shallow f50 entries. This meant our defence wasn’t set up and we conceded shots way too easy.
The role Jack plays is critical. It allows us to get shots on goal from a contest (so many shots come from his quick hands from ball ups or marking contests) or at least get a ball up and allow our defence to set up and stop the opposition from running it out easily.
Integral to how the team sets up.
