Dustin doesn't tackle either we need to criticise him more than..People sitting there praising Ellis up and calling him tough for laying the odd good tackle here and there. Never mind it rarely happens and never mind he rarely if ever is prepared to be tackled.Never mind few of his tackles are ever effective.
Laying a tackle is not being tough its a simple skill that is expected of all players.Tough is wearing a hard tackle knowing its coming and not putting the teammate in a position where he cops it instead.Tough is putting your head over the ball knowing its coming.
Tough is making sure you get the hands free drawing a player in knowing your going to get hammered. when if ever does this happen with Ellis.
