eh, someone with his marking ability is going to be pretty attractive to play at either of the ground and he showed plenty forward as well (if his set shots were any good he'd be far better up forward than he was last year)I’m just surprised it’s taken so long to play Cox down back. We drafted him as an U18 AA defender and then proceeded to play him up front for three years...in hindsight it just makes no sense.
Yep. Stand by this.
Cox is doing really well, especially after how bad his first game back was but......
Let's not forget how good Hamling and Pearce are. They are elite KPD and recency biaise is probably playing a part with all the Cox love being shown around here at the moment.
If the new coaching setup has allowed a limited player like Cox to thrive how well will Hamling and Pearce go?
Cox is going well at the moment, especially with Ryan's guidance.
It's suddenly obvious why JLo likes Colyer, and played Frederick. The team defence doesn't work as well if there isn't some guy putting on constant pace and pressure from our forward 50 running back into the midfield. Henry doesn't run both ways and Crowden was OK but still a bit off his game today.They weren't great either but the main problem really wasn't our defence. What the **** happened to our well orchestrated team defence? It's like the whole team collectively thought "nah, can't be f’ed".
For me only one of Hamling and Pearce should play. Both are tremendous stoppers but offer little in rebound. So Pearce gets in and Hamling starts to look shakey.this is the part where we be glad to just be fans and not the people in charge of these decisions haha
I agree but i think i would have Cox in for Hughes and Logue play in Hughes position.For me only one of Hamling and Pearce should play. Both are tremendous stoppers but offer little in rebound. So Pearce gets in and Hamling starts to look shakey.
Wilson Pearce Logue
Hughes Ryan Young
Depth in: Cox, Duman, Hamling, Watson etc.
Many many many people would have said that about Freo after our disastrous 2016.No ones going to want to leave what’s brewing at Freo to go to a shithole city like Adelaide and play for a shithole basketcase of a club like Adelaide. Do I mention Adelaide? Born in SA or not. He’s free now.
I think after watching the Fathers Day video put together by the club, where they filmed the kids, partners and parents of players, that Mr Ryan Snr gave me the cue.I thought they’d be more the boutique beer kind of guys.
The depth in that draft is insane, you’d have more chance missing water, falling out of boat then not getting a couple of b22 players out of itJeez that 2016 Draft is a sleeper - Cox, Darcy, Logue. Ryan and Duman - four 22yo & a 24yo - all a chance to be part of our next Grand Final squad!
and we brought in Hamling that year! When commentators and fans be like "how did Freo get rid of Sam Collins?", this is why...Jeez that 2016 Draft is a sleeper - Cox, Darcy, Logue. Ryan and Duman - four 22yo & a 24yo - all a chance to be part of our next Grand Final squad!
Crazy. This post 4 months ago would have had me seriously concerned. Now I’m like, with Logue back we have a perfectly good young backline who have the 4the least conceded points in the league.If Hamling can get back, it’s the perfect mix.
Pearce is a massive question mark. He’ll be 2 seasons out of football by the time he gets back.What’s the status with his injury.. not as optimistic. Hamling, at this season, was a bad ankle break.
