We have standards do we?

Can't wait for Atley to be carried off after his 300th
The bloke busts his guts for the jumper every week, and is one of a tiny few that has the leg speed to apply defensive pressure.

I only wish we had 3-4 more like him.

The games not just about score involvements.

Looks like this was on the money - sits out this week

"Shaw: For Jared, his body of work hasn’t been up to what we expect. We’ve had the discussion with him and he knows what he needs to work on. Polec is more about his role and playing to that. We have certain standards and behaviours that we judge the team by and everyone stands accountable. Jared’s a great player, and he’ll bounce back. He’ll be involved over the next few weeks."
That would be harsh. Was probably our best on the weekend. I do remember a few rounds back Polec making a tackle that may have gotten him a stat but that's all it did. The tackled player was easily able to free his arms and get the disposal away cleanly. Pretty sure he was on the bench a minute or two later getting some constructive feedback from Shaw.

I think that inside foot kick during the GWS game has given him licence to be too cute with his disposal since.

Maybe the stats will prove me wrong?

But yeh, very surprised with the whole show today
