Hooker kicked 5 on Jones, Tippa kicked 4 on Plowman and whoever was on Stringer let him have 5 scoring shots too.

I think most the hype on Parks is about his mongrel and attack on the footy, but I do agree with you to some extent. It's clear that our defence has some work to do.

We rank 6th in the league for points against, yet 5th in the league for points for. We have the potential to do some real damage.
No he didn't.

While the hit on Tippa was awesome, his man took 5 contested marks and kicked 3 goals (one is on DOC failing to cover the leading lane), fell over chasing the lose ball in front of Hooker resulting in Tippa's 3rd goal and took an air swing at the ball resulting in Tippa's 4th.

Think the hype is over the top

Parks’ tackling and aerial work was something to keep an eye on, with a mammoth tackle on Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti that brought the crowd to their feet and seemingly shifted the momentum of the game.

“I thought he was going to take off as soon as he hit that junction but he slowed up and I don’t think he realised I was coming,” Parks said.
“My eyes sort of lit up when I knew I got that tackle but I was pretty stoked to get that one.

"He’s a big boy" I was pretty winded after that, he’s strong.”

So were we Luke :laughv1: :laughv1: :laughv1:

No he didn't.
Plowman was 100% playing on Tippa at the start of the game. I didn't pay attention to that match up during the 2nd half but if Plomwan did move off him, it was the right call. He was getting slaughtered - 3 goals in one quarter.

Parks ain’t perfect. You can see he’s learning his craft on the fly. And, yeah, he makes mistakes. But the intensity and competitive nature he brings is worth shouting about given our well documented lack of intensity this year.

No he didn't. Tippa kicked one on Plowman. A bit hard to blame Plowman for goals 2 and 3 given he was on the interchange.

For the record, Plowman spent 16 minutes of the quarter on Tippa and conceded one goal.
3:44 - Plowman off the field
2:40 - Tippa kicks a goal on Saad. Plowman still on the bench
1:40 - Tippa kicks a goal on Stocker. Plowman still on the bench

And this is why people should watch a replay before they tee off on a player...

Should just draft every Sydney academy player.
Lucky for us the Crows decided to blow their Pick 1 on Bryce Gibbs in the rookie draft for some reason. Allowed us to take Luke Parks with Pick 8.

You’d think the Crows would have watched a bit of Parks running around with Glenelg for a year lol.

He's definitely raw and makes mistakes but his role makes the team better and his competitive nature and 2nd effort shows there's a serious player emerging in a place of need
