I didn't realize Hind is VERY clean and efficient with the ball. We'll enjoy him this year I think.
His decision making so far has been impressive. It’s quick, decisive and effective - and usually the right one.

Doesn’t try to bite off more than he can chew, even if at times when he could he might get away with it. Instead he just gets it, goes and executes really quickly and with positive impact.

My gripe with Lloyd is he is big on finding problems but short on solutions.
Agree with what you say. Wright will most likely give us more output than Joe has in the last 3 years.
It seems to be everyone thinks there was some mystical Joe replacement out there we missed.
Could have been worse I suppose. Could have gone with Brown and be getting zero output again.

Personally I have confidence Jones can be a good forward. Marks the ball well and is a reliable kick.
My Lloyd theory is that he's trying really hard to not appear biased but overcompensates in doing so.

Was good to see him do well in his first game for you.
It Irks me to see him playing for the Bombers, when we have McKenzie on our emergency list ( a guy who shouldn't be on an AFL list ), but he's sure to have more opportunity than vying for a spot with Coffield, Clark, Paton, and Long.
Can trade you Cutler if you like? Perfect sub, I promise

Iggles, 76ers.
Leading player for metres gained & inside 50's, clean up his efficiency a bit & the loss of Saad wont be felt too badly.
