He is one of our better kicks I know it’s not saying much but feels safe when he has it in his hands kicking inside 50.
God, I hope Higgins isn't in the equation, he's disposal has been shocking this year.I think Higgins will still be right up there. Still gets the tag and gets a lot of ball even if disposal isn’t as good this year he is still our best player
Cunners would be a fair chance for the Brownlow if we’d won more games.God, I hope Higgins isn't in the equation, he's disposal has been shocking this year.
I think Cunnington is probably pretty clearly in front. He's a fair chance to be an AA starting mid this year.
I'd have it at 1. Cunnington, 2. Atley, ...... daylight.
At the moment.
I've never understood why, as soon as we get a player start playing consistent footy, people suggest changing his role.So I was talking to myself in the shower today and I came up with an odd suggestion. Do you think maybe they might try him in the centre? Not sure if it is crazy but seems like it might be something to try.
I would generally agree with this, but in Atley's case, he's finally realising the potential we thought we had recruited. So, the view that he could be valuable in the midfield is not without merit.I've never understood why, as soon as we get a player start playing consistent footy, people suggest changing his role.
His best year was on the forward line last year but I think he's better this year and it suits him down back at the moment. I wasn't the only one who had written him off as the sort of sort of back/wing type player he is currently - but he's bloody good this year. Full credit to him. Maybe he just needed some time up forward to get a bit of confidence in his ability to take the game on? The fact that he went forward and played his best footy last year then went back to the backline (to a role I and a few others thought he was average at best in) and started playing great footy .... it does suggest he might be okay if we gave him another shot in the middle.I would generally agree with this, but in Atley's case, he's finally realising the potential we thought we had recruited.

We don't have enough or even any really fast midfielders and I think we need them.agree with the comment a few lines up. why change his position when he's playing well. Add to that we have an abundance of midfielders. needs to stay back. hes defending well and is clean getting the ball out of the backline. has been brilliant this year
Wasn't Shaun's fault, he had to reassess about 3 times on that run due to some appalling leading patterns and a ridiculously crowded forward 50. I'd rather he got run down looking for a decent option that just bomb it to where Ben Brown would be if he wasn't buried under layers of red and white jumpers.When he got that ball in open space, I said out loud, 'go for a run'. And he did. It was marvelous...
...until he got run down by some guy who I don't even know the name of.
What on earth?
