Great to have you on board even if it is for another year, Zac. :thumbsu:

Don't know where I read or heard this, but someone remarked about Fishers' fingers being like that of a gecko.
I found it funny but also on the mark.

Just watched the replay v the dogs.

He is ******* amazing.

He could be a regular 30+ possession winner soon.

As much as I like Cripps, Fish's possessions might just be more important.

You know at least a third of his didposals involve running and kicking forward (not sideways) and he'll be bobbing up and kicking goals a lot of the time , particularly when we get some more talent around the ball.

Opposition teams won't be able to stop them all.

While I agree with you about his potential with clean possession of the footy, there's also his disposal efficiency round by round:

17/21, 15/18, 11/16, 3/13, 16/27, 14/28

Contrasted with his contested possession numbers:

8/23, 10/20, 8/16, 7/14, 15/27, 12/28

And his turnover numbers (forced and unforced):

2, 2, 1, 5, 13, 7

I'm hoping we learnt the lesson from the Eagles game: he's a predominantly outside player, otherwise his game (and the team's) suffers.

It shows that the more you put him in the heart of midfield, the more he fails are getting the ball out smartly, and it in fact it falls off a cliff compared to the average contested player in midfield.

Will have a breakout year in 2019. Shame he played more than 10 games last year, would of been a Rising Star contender this year.

Still remember his first goal, pegged against the boundary, 45 out. Never in doubt.

You just knew he was going to develop into a classy player with some serious nous, and a deadly finisher anywhere inside 50.
