I think Higgo (that’s what me and my 176 mates call him), will win the Brownlow this year. And I think he still has another couple left in him. His season this year was reminiscent of Kevin Bloody Wilson’s 1969 season when he won the Brownlow playing for Fitzroy. Real hardness and polish.

I know it will never happen, but I'd love Shaun as the Brownlow Smokey to get up.

Has given his all this year, and been clearly best on in quite a few games.

Would be well deserved.
Sadly I think Mitchell* is as big a cert as Dusty was last year.

The thought of our previously solo Ferrari Higgo weaving his magic being joined by Polec and Gaff, with a supporting cast of hard bastard extracting enforcers is mouth watering.

This bloke is a bloody star of the comp!

The club will forever in debt to whoever it was that made the ultimate decision to take the risk, and it was a risk, to sign Higgo.

It's hard to say when he ends his career where he'll be remembered as a footballer in our history, but you would have to think he's be right up there, particularly if he continues to add to his honour roll.

Higgins made it pretty clear it was Cam Joyce

What a star this dude has been. I was doubtful at first. He shut me up pretty quickly and has embarrassed me with each passing week.

Whoever was responsible for this recruitment deserves a pay-rise. Make it happen, Euge :thumbsu:

If they match it so be it, it is overs anyway. There is no reason why an injury free mullet can't return to his previous form and slot back in at half back and play as well as higgins would.
Sorry for the bump, but this is good.

Congrats higgo - such a pleasure watching you play and you’re the smoothest moving player I’ve seen since Winnie.

Would love higgo to swap on the Hf line with hall next season - could get min 50 goals out of them.
