isn't CCJ the next Coleman medallist?Kept an eye on the Grundie/Cox Soldo/Chol duck duel last night, and I thought around the ground our rucks did better. Soldo and Chol are completely different beast and Nank sits somewhere in between them. Chol's strength is his versatility, and his movement through traffic. Scary thought considering there's still more upside.
I love his kicking action, and if he keeps kicking goals, he might become our next "Cholman" Medalist, after Lynch has won a few.
I'm thinking the same thing...just little cameos in the Ruck but plays as a forward and being looked after like Cox is at the wobbles for soft frees cos it's in the interests of the game to have more players like Mabs playing...it's good for the future of the AFL in fostering multi culturalism...Not sure I want Mabs to have to grind it out in the ruck too much in the future. Seems to be an extremely tall classy play maker in a lot of ways.
Bugger the multiculturalism. He could be a damn good AFL player for us.I'm thinking the same thing...just little cameos in the Ruck but plays as a forward and being looked after like Cox is at the wobbles for soft frees cos it's in the interests of the game to have more players like Mabs playing...it's good for the future of the AFL in fostering multi culturalism...
could be our version of nicnat.Bugger the multiculturalism. He could be a damn good AFL player for us.
That he's black is just another thing that might attract more tiger heads. He's an excitement machine when going. Just got to work out how to play him. And he has to be genuinely serious about the AFL. If he gives it his all he'll have a good AFL career I reckon.
Don't reckon. Nic Nat is a monster physically, can't see Chol ever muscling up. But Chol has skills and footy smarts that Nic Nat doesn't. Same ability to jump over a haystack. Chol is a fast fairly skillful tall guy, not a contested beast.could be our version of nicnat.
If I was a mad scientist I'd transplant Grigg's brain into Chol's body.It's more than easy, it's a no brainer. People have short memories when it comes to Grigg.
Dimma in his post GF interview on "on the couch" pointed out how good he is as a ruck and how great his GF game was, saying how we won more clearances at stoppages when Nank was off the ground and Grigg in the Ruck compared to when he was on, and noted 6 were in the third quarter.
Chol has a massive spring, and at this stage just tries to get it to our advantage, and doing a decent job, but according to the Dimna interview, Griggs strength was his huge footy smarts and understanding of the game, and how he'd quickly organise mid possitioning and position himself to force the opposition ruck to hit it to our advantage and the majority of time it worked.
Chols a baby in footy terms and will improve outa sight with his backup ruck craft, but the 2019 Chol v pre-injury Grigg is a no brainer which one to choose.
I think Tiger71 said as part of Dusty deal we encouraged Shai to sign on with Ralph, reckon it’s the same with Chol.

We’re smart enough to know that by looking after Ralph he’ll look after us back. He is a big influence I reckon on keeping Shai in Melbourne for his own development as well as shaping his attitude to getting better and has obviously been a good influence and helping mature Dusty.
Reckon he gets a bad wrap around here these days.
this is a problem , he has shown he is AFL worthyVery ordinary tonight. Cannot take this form into finals.
