That's unexciting for me :(
I look at it from the perspective that we have one of the better second ruck options in the league, and he has real upside!!

Is our leading player for set shot accuracy this year.

Did you see him chase danger on a wing against Geelong last week. Has serious straight line speed, is beginig to learn how to time his leap and grab, not many defenders will keep up with him off the mark...especially not to spoil.

Judge him at the end of next year

Grundalicious news!!

He reminds me a bit of James Manson, better skilled yet somewhat awkward, with a huge heart & appetite for the contest.

$625K doesn't sound too bad either for a young number 1 ruck.

Friggen stoked.
James Manson absolute top bloke too.
Heart and soul player.
Grundy ofcourse is far higher level, but if he's half the bloke Charlie was (and I bet he is.) we have an absolute ripper in Brodie.

What did he say?
He spoke positively about his progress and how expects him to improve again next year. And also how he hopes that Grundy and Cox can work together and play in the same team.

Obviously his retention hinges on buckleys extension

Incredible news.

By an absolute MILE our most important re-signing and our most important player going forward.

Grundalicious news!!

Given he's already one of the best 3 or 5 Rucks in the comp and will be top 2 in a year or two, 625K is peanuts.

Destroys opposition rucks in the contests and then gets 21 contested possessions, has a monstrously HUGE tank and gives 2nd, 3rd and 4th efforts.

The cox factor is coming.
