Did exactly what we got him for and it was bloody fun to watch.
It was a shame he drifted out of the game second half. At times like that I’d love to see him thrown in the centre square to mix it up and get him involved, particularly if Higgo is having a spell. His size and burst would scare a lot of teams at the stoppage. I think it was a trait he alluded to himself in preseason.
Hall was a delight to watch yesterday. I haven’t seen that sort of excitement since Wellsy in his prime. On top of that, he gets more of the ball than Wells did, even though our midfield was flogged. Obviously, he doesn’t use the ball as well as Daniel did, but still...
Yeah, this. I thought this was almost even more impressive than his incredible attacking output because it's the thing that's been a knock on him. Very heartening to see him chase and pressure as hard as he did.
I reckon Hally should attend more centre bounces, as the "burst" option, Higgins tried a couple yesterday, first one fell flat on his face, 2nd ran 25m without taking a bounce, the way the new 6-6-6 rule is going, centre clearance = goal/easy shot most of the time, we need more pace in there to offset Cunners lack of it, ideally Jacobs or Jed in there to to be the defensive component.
I genuinely felt sorry for him running too far without a bounce, every time he looked forwards or sideways for a viable option to pass to, nada, even Tammy Watson remarked how all our forwards were running forwards and not doubling back to provide a target, i mean, Hall can occsionally hit targets when they present, unlike quite a few of his team mates.
