    Couldn't believe how Ed Langdon was getting up and down the ground for Freo on the weekend 1 minute having a shot at goal and I swear it was like 20 seconds later he was mopping up in support down the back. It's probably a bit underrated when people talk of elite attributes compared to strength , power and skills etc

    Who's a underrated end to end performer from your club ?

    Macrae and Hunter.

    Their possessions reflect this most games too.

    Used to be Brad Ebert as one of the best in the comp, but his age and niggles have slowed him down this year.

    Next would be Motlop, Westhoff and Polec. Motlop always seems to be the top of repeat sprint efforts and distance covered in most games.

    Gaff, which wouldn't surprise anyone. Duggan and Cole also are great runners from our backline.

    Scully
    Sure he sleeps on a treadmill. Has incredible aerobic fitness. Can and does run out games when our bench is reduced.

    Duggan covers the ground alot.

    Willie Rioli on two occasions has made the top 5 for km's covered in a game. Rekon he'd be up there after a few preseasons.

    Bit of a left-field one, but Cal Sinclair is an incredible runner for a ruckman.

    Geary generally leads the way with Sinclair, Newnes and Ed Phillips not far behind.

    Tom Phillips- obvious.
    Treloar- you get excited when he grabs the ball from 60m out and puts on the jets towards goal.
    Grundy- for his size he can go all day
    Crisp- solid 2 way runner for us. Likes to take the game on with a run and long kick.

    Lambert, then I’d say a surprise one in Riewoldt.

    Most distance covered in a single game at Port Adelaide 2018: Justin Westhoff ahead of Boak and Polec. Not bad for 199 cm and oldest on the list. Gaff and Blicavs most in AFL.

    Also out of interest.
    Quickest sprint at Port Adelaide in a game 2018. Dougal Howard ahead of ByrneJones and Polec. Also not bad for 199 cm. Majak Daw highest in AFL.

    Hmm , doesn't really fit in with the ' lazy ' label that gets stuck on him sure does pay to block a lot of that noise out and look at the facts

    It's funny how disasters can turn out to be a positive sometimes in footy

    Probably Billy Hartung.

    Not so much these days, but I remember when in Goldstein's incredible dominance season of 2015, where people thought Blicavs was going to run circles around him, and he didn't even break a sweat.

    Jed Anderson gets to a lot of contests and provides an extra body.
    Never thought I’d say that about him, but he’s been brilliant

    Gaff in the same module as Scully except not as explosive. But a champion runner.

    Masten
    Tom Cole
