I get the accolades Levi is receiving have always been a supporter of his but Harry took the brunt of tall forward work in second half and soldiered on after a groin injury - really happy with his performance under a lot of pressure.

A fit Charlie and McGovern - will unleash Harry - not a lot of match ups that can handle a more developed Harry.
I agree. The only knock I have on Harry is how slow he is getting back off the mark to take his kick in general play. As a forward he should know the advantages of the ball coming in quickly. Might just be a fitness thing.

Jack silvagni clearly quelled fyfes impact hard to do, joins two other players who can do that which is elliot yeo and jarrad berry but not at their level yet as JSOS wasn't more influential than fyfe. Fyfe still got 29 and 1 goal 2 so JSOS still has a way to go but really impressed by the performance he put up.

I think Fyfe already had 20 odd touches until half time when JSOS went onto him.

Yep now that you mention it.
Who was fyfe before that because I remember walking away from that game thinking if only fyfe kicked straight (story of a freo supporters life), not fyfe had a terrible game.

Not sure mate but from memory the stats of Fyfe and JSOS were very similar from when he went to him. If we could get that result every time we played you guys we would be very happy. Fyfe is top 3 in comp at any time for me for all round game.

Have to say Jack Silvagni got my vote for the maturity and increasing confidence and consistency he shown in 2019 (not just since Teague took over either)

Always knew Big Levi had the tools to be a very good player if it all came together for him, but there was times last season I genuinely worried if Son of Steve was going to cut the mustard at AFL Level ! All those fears and worries have been put to rest. Very, very happy with Jack's sensational season.

He reminds me of the way yeo stops him similar background, back-men who transitioned into midfielders.
JSOS training as a key position played allowed his one out defending in forward fifty to be competent enough to stop him. Fyfe also likes to float in for defensive marks and slow down momentum, which didn't happen. If fyfe isn't winning contested ball thats his fall back.
Because fyfe is actually a really good long distance runner who just seem to get to heaps of contests. Its hard for taggers to maintin the energy to restrain him all game hes 96kg but JSOS can do that. Plus jack probably trains against cripps who i reckons a better contested beast than fyfe so his contested work didn't phase JSOS.

berry is 195cm and a long distance runner who cut him up on the outside demonstrated by three goals and matched him on the inside. (by the way how much did it hurt brisbane when he didn't play against you guys, cripps went nuts 38 possies and 4 goals).

SPS for me. Since his transfer to defence he has improved markedly. Has become more consistent & reliable. Not a real run & carry player out of defence, but uses great composure and disposal under pressure to get the team out of trouble many times. I believe in the future he may get his turn in the midfield again, but for now his niche is in defence for me.
