News to me, I guess he'll have to transfer his studies from UQ to a Melbourne Uni because that was behind the GCS luring up there to play NEAFL while they assessed him.
Had a chat to someone close with Baldwin, they thought Hawks were his best bet, this took even those close to him by surprise

So, Richmond Collingwood. No flagellation about Hocking sitting back with a sh*t-eating grin thinking he’s been vindicated for the worst rule change in the history of the game?

The rule is still sh*t.

It’s done nothing but add to the death by a thousand cuts of a once great game.

Interesting observing the rule in this game. Both sides are being obedient on the mark, but Richmond are far more practised at the kicker taking advantage of it. Collingwood just seem to be playing like last year.

Zac Williams 17 touches

Alot of money to pay for a HB with midfield ambitions

It's a pre-season game. And Williams can play, I like him as a player. But no way has been able to show that:
He is a better half back than Laird; or
He can transition to the midfield

and I'll bet he will be on way, way more $ than Laird (and no I am not privy to player contracts)

Yet posters complain about signing Laird on 5? Great move. I'm behind it

AFL pushes the media to spruke "how good is this" in a non intensity pre-season match due to one team scoring over 100 and another being 1 point short. Very next game it's both teams under 80 points, proving again that the coaches control the game and not Steve Hocking like he likes to think.

Agree Williams can play however his proven position is HB, not midfield

Williams has moved to Carlton on Elite Midfielder dollars and this year will need to demonstrate elite midfield production to pay Carlton back for their salary cap investment

It's a massive roll of the dice by Carlton
