Laughs aplenty, but he’s been a solid lock down defender and has provided admirable coverage for Marley. we likely now have to bring in an aged Sam Wright to contain MacDonald-Tippungwuti. I’m worried.
It wouldn't matter to me which club the player was from. I would be very unhappy at anyone being suspended for an action to spoil in a marking contest like that. In the old days spoils like that invariably landed behind the ear, not across the shoulder. While I never condoned those sorts of hits, these days the game has become very soft in my opinion.
They showed a bit of footage of Lukes spoil on AFL360, and it appeared that the concussion could have been caused by Jones's head hitting LMacs knee on the way down to the ground, good shot of appeal succeeding i reckon.
As much as Luke has been under the pump, were coming up against Orazio and Tippingwoody.
If he were to miss this week with no Marley would leave us short.
He can defend in general play.
He just cant track back as well or kick. And is no good one on one. But in general play where those 2 are extremely dangerous he is very apt. We need him Friday.
