Marlion Pickett strike rate update.

1 flag every 13.5 games.

Delicious. :)
Sad thing is we could win the flag every year for the rest of his career and he could play in every one of them, but this will almost certainly keep declining.

Having Pickett in the middle really does strengthen us up around the center bounces. It works especially well with the 6-6-6 rule where as soon as the ball hits the ground, we outnumber the opposition with creative ball winners. I know it sounds mad, but I actually prefer to see Pickett and Balta contesting the center bounces and Nank rucking around the ground for that very reason.

Playing to the players strengths rather than continually focusing on improving their weaknesses is what has allowed us to find out these types of hidden gems.

Only as far as about 1 in 20 though ;)

Gone to a new level, reckon its just cos 25+ games under his belt given him confidence!
Just loving watching him play

He hits so bloody hard and bounces right back up
Disposal improving too!
Definitely the games under the belt have added confidence, another example of a player many were prepared to write off after a handful of games . Is making a real impact now with his hardness and has added a string to his bow with seriously good work in the cbd

Not to mention how difficult last year would have been on him mentally being away from his family.
