Slowly absorbing Jacobs' soul

Sucks for Ben though
Jacobs currency has all but been killed off.
If Jacobs were to miraculously become fit again Luke is literally taking his spot.
Not saying Jacobs can’t come in and do a job and pick up his usual 20-25 but his fighting for a spot with McDonald who has after 7 years hit his groove.

As you said, sucks to be Ben right now.

Been a huge critic of him.

In a dismal year club wise, he's really stepped up.

Something has clicked, maybe the continual joking around has been replaced by full endeavour on and off field.

someone explain to me why he played back again instead of tagging cripps wtf! Anderson was brilliant in negating cripps after qt but how can you decide to use polec to tag him after the success of the last few weeks. that decision is one of many that cost us the game

'Experimenting' is the name given to these moves.

Thought he took some goal saving marks but why fu** around with his role.
That saying he’s a valuable contributor.

Agree that it was odd he was back to being a regular defender, but man he really shone out there. Most effective kicks for the game and highest meters gained (Taz was second for both of these FWIW), as well as most intercept marks. His kicking was really quite good, which was still a knock even when he was tagging.

This year he's steadily rebuilding his entire skillset, and it's an amazing turnaround.

This is another win for the club in that we have made great progress to regain a lost weapon in jacob.

if mcdonald could become the premium stopper or just a fairly decent one, we will have made great stride.

through the darkness, the shine at the end of the tunnel is becoming brighter.
