Huge momentum killer.

No footy IQ whatsoever.

If not omitted then move up fwd and a run with role on a defensive rebounder. He can do that well.
Agreed.

Football brain of a turnip.

Couldn't count the number of times I've seen him running through the middle at full noise only to handball/kick sideways/backwards, cough it up from a shank or get caught through indecision...

Just another Scott era prodigy that failed to live up to early promise and expectations. Frustrating player that’s for sure. Not sure with him, whether it was poor development, lack of hunger/desire, unwillingness to take the next step, just comfortable collecting his paycheque and being on a list etc. Probably a combo of everything.

I wonder how much of that is due to him not having options to kick to tho.

Gutsy call 👍
Such pessimists around here, honestly.

We just need to beat Adelaide by 230 points to square off our percentage back to even.

From there we aim to win 15 in a row giving us the last few weeks just to rest and tune up for a proper tilt at September.
