so, this year the kickout player can run to 25 to kic.

we know balta can kick 70m pretty consistently.

im hoping a few times this year we see him take the kickout and roost it a total of nearly 100m down the ground. on some of the smaller grounds (scg), thats almost an inside 50 kick. worst case, a contest 70m doesnt seem so bad. would be a blast to watch at least, everyone loves a big bomb kick.

Sometimes I'd really like to see him and Dusty when they are 60+ out just say screw it and unload one at the goals, I know our team philosophy and all but one game when we are up by heaps who cares? The crowd wants to see it. And if they know they can make the journey, it's not even the worst play. At worst they miss which isn't uncommon from set shots anyway.
