    would be surprising considering he signed another contract with us late last year

    I'm guessing he's signed an EDFL contract to be his home club when he can't get a game in our VFL side, because there was definitely confirmation of his re-signing late last year

    Was in the back line a lot against Casey, is this new for him or did he play there a bit last year?

    Looked pretty good I thought, disappeared a little bit at times though.

    played a lot off half back last year.

    partly as a ploy to get him running more and partly to teach him some defensive responsibility

    Definitely a little solid ball of muscle, is Tippa.

    Thought he looked pretty decent against Casey.

    Ha! Indeed he did.

    Lewis Jetta of 2012 preliminary final-esque. Almost.

    I counted 23 steps. Umpire must have been too busy watching him dance around those two guys.

    if he keeps improving at this trajectory, i believe he will come in to calculations.

    When he came down to victoria and started playing for gippy it was laughable how unfit he was. He deserves it so much more than a dayle garlett type party boy does

    Word is Tippa is going to miss an extended period what with Ben Hudson being an abominable sniping hack.

    8-12 with that ankle unfortunately. Gutted for him
