Yep have be a sneaky chance at AA
Averaging 13 possessions 9 contested, 4.8 clearances, 5.8 tackles, 29 HO and over 20 pressure acts.
AF 97pt which is elite for a ruckman.
Has also been able to go forward this year and have a big impact, good for almost a goal a game.
Smashed Grundy on the weekend.
I'm happy for him to be the almost quiet achiever, compared to the usual wankfests brought on about the likes of Goldstein and Mummy etc.
He's a lionheart, is our Kreuz, and as usual even stats don't tell the full story with him. I imagine the mids must absolutely love being alongside him in the middle, because even if he does lose a tap, the amount of physical presence he provides (not to mention full on bulldozing sometimes) for them is huge.
Great to see him back to pre knee reco form. Just got an incredible knack to keep the ball moving to advantage at a stoppage. The value of that can't be measured. Please keep him rucking solo with the odd chop-out from cas. Having to split duties with Phillips killed his output last year.
Got a knock in the Suns game. Was good early did nothing after half time. Missed the Port game. His impact is so under rated. Puts opposition midfielders on the back foot knowing he is coming for them at the stoppages.
Sorry for the intrusion. I'm a primary school teacher and Matty Kreuzer recently came out to my school to conduct a footy clinic with a few other players.
Just wanted to say that he is an absolute ripper of a bloke and was great with the kids. I've never really taken much interest in him as a non-carlton supporter, but will be following his progress closely from now on. He has had a fantastic year to date and IMO deserves to be the starting ruck in the AA team.
Spewing that Kreuz didn't make the final AA cut. Very unlucky, but Ryder was not a terrible selection I suppose. Hopefully Matty can continue his great form next year and give it another shake. Good luck in the upcoming draft and trade period. Going to be an interesting one!
How much better do we play with Kreuzer in the side? There was a lot of debate about his efficiency and tapwork vs Phillips a couple of years ago. I think we can see the intangibles that Kreuzer brings to this side. We stand taller with him in the side.
