Yeh nah :)

He’s such a boss!

Just extraordinary talent for a ruckman.

I’m Going to make the big call, if he stays healthy he’ll be the (second) best ruckman I’ve ever seen at Collingwood.

At the moment Peter Moore is higher for me but Grundy will surpass him.*

I already have him passing everyone else like Monkhorst, Jolly.

* Len Thompson lives at number one; he was Uber elite ruck and in top 3 I’ve ever seen (Dempsey, Madden S, Thompson).

Grundy just has to surpass Moore.
Should happen...


You never saw "Polly" Saint?

The big boy plays his 100th game on Saturday, has been a stud since we drafted him. Will be a deserving All Australian this year and most likely a best and fairest to go with it. Having an insane year averaging 20.5 Disposals, 74% efficiency, 37 Hitouts, 5.1 tackles and 5.1 clearences.

Hardwick's face.... Haha

It would be a crap case for Wines or Macrae. If Daniher had have backed up last year's form, he'd have a case, but he hasn't backed it up, so Grundy by a mile for me.
I’d agree with you.

Though I “forgive” Daniher as he’s had groin trouble. That makes sense what with his porntash.
What an unfortunate fuzz thing on his lip. Hasn’t anyone in bomber land told him it’s looks, hmmm awful.

But Grundy is the best on all exposed careers to date.

No.
I’m after Polly.
I was a wee kid with Len to. But I remember. He was my first favourite player.

From what I’m told, Polly Farmer was something else. Beyond outstanding.


Yeah Polly was like a big version of a "Krakour brother" played instinctively, had a great leap, fantastic vision and was THE best handballer I've ever seen (even better than Cable). His handball was so good that you didn't even think it was extraordinary that he could kick 60m drop kicks as well. He was way ahead of his time.

Anyone got the clip of him throwing Mumford around during his first game or so?

Grundy should be AA this year.

To be fair Gawn also deserves it.

Both! Simple. One in the Ruck, one on the bench (or Ruck Rover :D for Grundy. The selectors would lack such insightful imagination the dullards they can be.)

And folks that is some praise from Rob.
Barry Cable was an all time super star at handball better than Diesel even.

I'd take Grundy every day too but you're underrating Ollie Wines.

Easy to say that in hindsight but Vardy, in particular, had shown promise.
I saw Grundy play before he got drafted, there shouldn’t have been any doubt from Geelong to take him. Vardy was never seen as being anything more than a solid ruckman

Watch out
If he starts clunking em

Hope the boys learnt from the first game when Griggs in the ruck
we gotta hit to space and not let em go 5 mids at the fall of the ball

It's there biggest weakness and we didn't exploit it last time

Hardly missed a game last 4 years. Can't remember what was his issue in first season but must be one of youngest ruckman to get to 100 games.

Love his around the ground work.
