His pressure's been really good as well, in addition to the goals. Was important in stopping Port's run from half back, which is something they normally do very well.

Defensive half forward's definitely the place for him.

So with no Vince or Bugg against Norf, does he get given a job (Higgins?)
I have tbh with you, besides maybe 4 or5 players, I have no idea who is on the Kangas list. They are as irrelevant to me as Gold Coast. They've beaten us 100 times in a row, so maybe I should take more notice of them, but meh.

Milkshakes has been a great addition. Really found his feet as a forward flank since a shaky start.

I couldn't agree more.
I feel like I know footy pretty well and would recognise most oppo players but other than a handful of Norf blokes, I wouldn't know them if they were swimming in my coffee.

Ok, I know maybe half their best 22, but the highlighted blokes I do not know. The only time I have ever watched the Kangas play in the last 4 or 5 years is against us.

Williams is the tatooed back pocked from Collingwood they got for free
Preuss Is the next Mumford
Wagner younger brother of ours
Dumont and Garner I think are their late first rounders from the last couple years.
Atley is a speedy HBF who we were into a couple years ago.

I may have put some mayo on that as I do know most of the blokes on your list.
Atley, Wagner, Dumont, Garner, Hrovat are all blokes I wouldn't recognise though
