I reckon you're right Mick, this guy is going to be one of the stars of our back-line moving forward, and will play many finals starting next year when he plays four! There is no doubt in my mind, that this guy will be one of the cornerstones of our defence for years to come.
Just 3 finals mate...don't want to do it the hard way!

Like all good backmen.

He's a natural replacement for Grundy when he finally starts to decline, but should've been in the side against the Cats last weekend. I'd be VERY surprised if he didn't play every game next year, barring injury.
I would have said that about aliir next season (and i guess the barring injury would have made it true) but it just goes to show.

Melican sure gives me a calm feeling about grundy one day retiring, wjereas this time last year i had a low hum of anxiety about him retiring that would never go away.

Marsh does try hard and has some moments, but look forward to Melican returning
Yep, that's it. Marsh is an honest trier and can be relied upon as depth but Melican is definitely an upgrade.

Having Marsh, Aliir, and Maibaum as our back-up KPD's is a pretty good spot to be in.
