Says how Gary Rohan will help Geelong with his 9.9 disposal average and 4th league total in causing turnovers to keep the ball in Cats forward 50.

Below quote shows perhaps why he was persisted with for so long at Swans.

Rohan has not been a high possession winner in his career, averaging 9.9 disposals, but he makes things happen when he gets the ball, with Sydney scoring 42.6 per cent of the time he was involved in a scoring chain in 2017-18 – ranked second at the Swans behind Lance Franklin.

"...with Sydney scoring 42.6 per cent of the time he was involved in a scoring chain in 2017-18 ..."

Can someone explain this? It makes about as much sense to me as Sex Panther's success rate.

Seems like a cool stat that is worded so poorly I don't understand exactly what it means.

Maybe they meant possession chain?
