I was having a cheap jab at the dropped uncontested high ball mark then weak followup tackle which resulted in a goal against the Bears. I doubt he would have liked that in review. I don't expect our outside players to be hard but hopefully he doesn't do too many more of those howlers.I think we can rely on him in the defensive 50 if he's not in too much traffic.
It'll probably take a while for it to gel with him. I don't think we use outside players as well as we could because we don't play that sort of footy.
With Kelly/Gaff/Martin pulling out of moving to our club I was in the camp that wasn't thrilled about continuing with the trade, not that I think he is a bad player, just that wasn't sold on the direction we were heading, taking free agents at a premium is different to trading for players. I was just concerned about not having enough talent in any particularly age group to be a contender. That being said, I have been happy with Polec and Pittard.
