Jack's having a nice run of good form at present, very good again in his new role as a relief ruckman, provided plenty of counterattack and didn't put a foot wrong all night. Gutsy in the air as always.

Personally I've thought for a fair while that he should ultimately be settled as a KD; early on the odd person would comment that he was too short for such a role when matched up against the Big Boys, but I reckon he plays plenty tall and the rebound and drive he already provides should continue to develop with experience.

Very good game yet again, bit concerned about using him in the ruck against teams that play two genuine rucks (like Hickey and Sinclair tonight). Think Gawn/Jackson, English/Martin. Should be away to get away with him taking a few contests against Marlion Pickett next week though...

You can see Jack gaining confidence by the week and knowing more and more when to take the game on. Last year it felt like he got caught HTB every game but I can’t remember it happening at all this season.

I thought you don’t care about ruck contests?

if so you should want Henry in the ruck all the time cos he racked up a heap of ball when in there.

hit outs don’t matter remember.

Gee he's good in the air, reminds me a bit of Hinkley in a lot of ways, probably better in the air but Ken was a better user (not saying Henry isn't, but Ken was very good by foot).
I'm a big fan.

I have always been a fan but I can’t believe how he seems to have just flicked a switch and is eager to take the game on. He has the potential to become a real weapon.
It may be stereotypical ... but about 22, 23 and 70 odd games ... he is right in that phase where one can start to be rewarded for the games he has played , and the mistakes he has made. The way he is playing atm ..he is moving into our best 5 , 10 players. A real bonus for the club considering the pick used to get him.

Make me hopeful for players like Neale.
