Misssterrrr Anderson still has a very important role to play for us. He is the midfield enforcer and not too bad a midfielder in his own right. He has developed his goal kicking ability to kick like 12 goals in 2019 so that's another tick. He is what i classify as one of the B+ a team cannot have enough of. Inside mid with good pressure skills, something we can't say have a great deal of.

I don't think Jed has kicked 2 goals in a game 4 times in all the years he has played for, let alone last year.
He kicked 6 in total in 2019. 2 against Footscray and Richmond in consecutive weeks then 2 for the remainder of the season.

His highest tally is 7 in 2018.

Thought he was pretty good playing forward against the saints. Some good defensive work but also had a sneaky chance at a goal. He's a threat down there. Could be his go moving forward.
That's his spot the next game we play.

Pressure forward with midfield stints.

It's hard not to like Jed. He just gives it his all. Was huge in the second half under the packs contesting the ball against 2 or 3 Saints players and stopping their run. Yeah he can fluff kicks but he can also nail beautiful inside 50s like the kick to Cunners for his first goal.

He fluffed a couple of kicks early but after that he was okay.

He's a lock for finals footy. If you think he gets pushed put to give us a shot at a flag he'll be pushed out by a bunch of harder players.

If we find a bunch of harder players with better skills we will win non stop flags.

Good game from Jedley. He's a handy versatile option, an extra inside mid as you need him an extra high pressure half-forward.

Has some decent crumbing nouse, could probably be very good in that role if left there.
Folks are going out of theuir way to applaud Cunners, but the work rate of Jed, CZ, Browny & Taylor was just as influential in the win.

Has anyone got the pressure stat numbers handy?
