Yeah, competition for that role is fantastic. TBH I love Jed in that role, its made for him IMO, but Jack has the ability to make life very uncomfortable for him.
Good to see Jack straight back in the team after injury. Obviously rated highly by Noble and company if not by some on here. Well done Jack.

Jack is the least of our worries and probably would of had a field day, hope his shoulder recovers well, can’t wait to see him back out there.
Exactly. Any judgement on Mahoney list wise won't be made for at least 18 months. Age wise the blokes a tot.

It was intend to be tongue firmly in cheek. But evidently not a great post wiz. Wasnt intended to offend, apologies

No harm mate and no offence taken. I tend to be too protective when the disease is taken lightly and that can be misconstrued as rudeness too.

Now let's all laugh at TZ.

I think he is playing his role pretty well, if he can hit the scoreboard and get a bit more of the footy, which will come naturally with a bit more time in the sysyem then he will be a very important cog for years.

I do have to say I actually agree with half of TZ's post yesterday, he probably shouldn't have come back yesterday as his shoulder probably isn't 100% right but it's a real testament to Jack that he's seen as an immediate in, even if proppy. That should be the final nail in the coffin for his haters, the bloke is a DEFINITE best 22 and calling for him to be dropped week in and out is really wasted bandwidth.

He has played a number of games this year where he hasnt had much to hang his hat on except his pressure. But the bloke is 19. His offensive game will come. Clearly the decision to bring him straight back indicates he is very highly rated internally as you have suggested. If there is one thing I have great faith in this coaching staff and admin is the list they are building and the 22 that they are putting out.

Push aside your whipping boys and back the side in.

He's a genuine enigma.

Does absolutely elite stuff immediately followed by some of the most basic errors you'll ever see on the field.

He's 19. When our other young players do incredible work and then stuff up, it's taken as a given that they'll just clean those things up as they inevitably become stars. For some reason, Jack's never afforded that same benefit of the doubt. Is it his hairline?
