Played 2 yrs of colts footy at the Sharks and we didn’t lose a game, not fair really when we basically came from all of the other GC teams and we were all ex-Victorians. Ahhh, good times!Back in my footy days, I made my one and only grand final by pumping Southport on their home deck. It was a thing of beauty.
Wonder if Hammer might make the move and try and help his AFL chances in a stronger state league.Some interesting stats for the season so far (neafl.com.au). Keays far and away our leading goalkicker with 32.15 from just 11 games. Next best is Wooller with 24.12 from 15. And while we're on goalkickers, two ex-Lions are leading overall - Hammelmann with 57.45 from 16 games and Jono Freeman 38.37 from 15.
Wooller showing his versatility with third placing in total possessions for Lions (behind C Lyons and Basti) and also leading marks with 120 (next best Lyons with 92). Not surprisingly Tom Berry is killing the tackle count with 98 from Lyons (46) and Basti and Ely (39 each).
3.5 goals and 6.5 scoring shots a game is a fair effort. One of his issues at the higher level (apart from playing on better defenders) might be the defensive side of his game which may not have improved. Averaging 1 tackle per game.Wonder if Hammer might make the move and try and help his AFL chances in a stronger state league.
