    thats what I keep thinking about, how many times this year I watched frustrated as no one from our team ran to create options coming out of defence. For this alone he will be gold for us. Plus he plays with flair and daring, something we need badly right now.

    He has pace with one of the best tanks in the game.
    If you don't rate him, watch him and him only during a game and see how much space he creates for others.

    Yep... either a fitness or tactical issue or a bit of both... so frustrating though. The audible groans at the ground at times last season said it all.

    I think you missed my point. I'm boasting our pace WITH his inclusion.

    Abasi is a smart lad.

    Watch him play live and then you will understand just how much work he does, and watch how easily he makes space for himself. Was tagged a couple of times a few years ago but learned how to beat a tag.

    At full speed his delivery is elite. Very rarely makes mistakes.

    That's one of the most impressive and damaging aspects of his relentless and selfless gut running;it's intelligent and sacrificial in that at times I'm sure he's running hoping the ball carrier doesn't use him but uses the player folding into the space he's just created.Obviously he almost always becomes an option himself because of his pace and huge stamina.
    He's not just an athlete at all he's deadly cunning with his timing and running patterns.....then there's his decision making and delivery!!:cool::D:thumbsu::thumbsu:

    They sent down Lachie? I wonder if he's thinking 'that McCarthy fellow gets a Brownlow Medalist to meet him, and all I got was the all-time league disposal record holder bloke.. sheesh'.

    Agree. One thing that shits me about our play is we don't know how to spread. Too many players get sucked in too deep or too close to the ball and are slow to spread. Spreading the field is all Brad does and I'm very happy with that.

    You guys sure did well this trade period. Hill is worth a first rounder IMO.

    nah we paid overs for Hill but it was essentially a straight swap for Mayne so it's works out well for us still

    Not a whole lot of difference between 23 and a late first I reckon.
