It would be legitimate carnage at local level, you'd need st John's on perms standby
Oh man, 100%..

Several St John's teams. One for each quarter.

I totally get why Essendon recruited him this year. Apart from Ambrose and maybe Francis on his day we have had a butter soft list who wouldn't hurt a fly. Hopefully some of Townsend's grit has rubbed off.

He was almost best on ground in the 2017 Grand Final.
Did we even give him 22 games to see if he could reach potential.
EFC give players games for 5 matches then drop them etc and hand senior players who struggle with consistency games every week.

He played nearly every game for us this year? He’s too slow and has hands like concrete. The one thing he does do well is tackle hard, that’s about it.

???? Best on ground in a GF with 8 touches? And he played 12 out of 17 games this season. If you ain’t his father you’re his mother!
