He has the right head for ruck work!!!
Well to be honest i thought Soldo got pushed out of the pack as he recieved the ball and had to bounce it to recover his balance...Young Richmond ruckman Ivan Soldo took another significant step in his development at the game’s highest level with a strong performance against Brisbane last Sunday.www.richmondfc.com.au
He had a career-high 14 disposals, career-high six score involvements, career-high three inside-50s, career-high eight one-percenters, five clearances, 29 hit-outs and took a career-high five marks.
At one stage, he even had the confidence to embark on a run with the ball and took a bounce.
I must admit it was a great moment to see him come out of that pack and take a bounce
Just seems to be improving that little bit extra every new game he plays...and hasn't played all Season so will still have some petrol tickets left!I reckon the Big Fella is looking more like Mark Lee everyday.....luv the Stache !!
Even starting to play a little like him !!!
Nic Nat is not the litmus test, yes he is explosive and yes he is athletic, but don't let a few flashy plays here and there fool you.He has comfortably crossed the line to competitive AFL ruckman now. Probably nothing that can open a team up to being dominated more than having an uncompetitive ruckman. It is a bonus to have a dominant ruckman but this bloke doesn't look like being dominated. But see how he gets on v ripnatanui after the Eagles crush the Vaginas this week, he is the true litmus test for any current ruckman.
