A while ago we could, but I reckon after not playing forward for that long, he probably won't have the confidence required to make a quick impact. Plus he's such a general down back, I'd be more comfortable with him remaining where he is.
I want him at CHB, but if we really need a target and he's getting beaten on the day he can swing forward.

Nah prefer him on Membrey
Tarrant on king
Daw on Ryder/Marshall

he has good closing speed for membrey matchup
I like the match ups, but geez poor King. He might as well switch the footy boots over to running shoes because he’d be playing decoy.

Interesting to watch the footage again, what is an accidental tunnel?

Also, although Max King likely wasn't aware that his teammate was "accidently tunneling" Walker, did he contribute to the force at which Walker hit the ground?

When the emphasis is on the injury over the action, should King or the tunnelling player be in strife for this? I suspect not, particularly given how difficult it will be to give Max at least 2 dubious frees for goal per game if he can't be selected in the side ;-)

They are never in strife when it is on a North player :huh:
