I love the way he is developing, so I'm not going to mention that one where he burst into the clear 25 out directly in front and then handballed it backwards to a flat footed Mason Cox. WTF was that?
His kicking is still an issue such that he doesn’t trust himself either. It will come.

Wasn't clear from the TV coverage but I'd assumed he must have been running head long into a wall of Dees players.

He was definitely heading straight at at least one Demons player, still I think he was better off taking the player on, or going a quick kick over the top, than handballing to Mason.

And he'd taken about 5 steps already so plenty of time to kick the goal. It was one of many goals we left out there in the first half. We should have had the game iced at half time. As dangerous as our forward line are looking, we're not consistently taking advantage of periods of dominance.

He’d be the type of bloke who would be working on it hard. He’s never going to be fantastic but if he can get his confidence up he’ll be fine imo.

Wish he snapped that goal when he was running full tilt, but it’s just about the hardest kick in football to come off.

I don't think his kicking is an issue. He's looked a really neat in general play.

I think he's pushed himself ahead of both Varcoe and Thomas, so I think he's safe in terms of selection. I'm hoping the match committee agrees with me.
Agreed, although Bucks has been on record that JT is not in danger of being dropped.

But I think with Elliott and Adams back, I'd also drop JT ahead of Cal Brown right now.

He can do all the defensive pressure acts that Varcoe can do. So hes miles ahead of him. Not sure hes ahead of Thomas because Thomas hits the scoreboard every week.

We will know when Adams and Elliott are both back which way the club goes.

Probably more on his set shots and just some distance but overall his short field kicking is fine.

He's in until Adams is right, then might get squeezed out unfortunately. Got to keep playing him at every opportunity, let him develop at the highest level possible
