I know we were tipped out in the Prelim but season 2018 were filled with another year of incredible highlights - from Dusty’s goal vs the Hawks in the Prelim, Dan Rioli’s flukish mark and goal vs Sydney to Jack’s bag of 10 against the GC.

What was your highlight of season 2018?

Was at the GC game up here. When Jack kicked his first, I turned to some random sitting next to me, old bloke with Tiger gear on, and said...
"Jack will kick 10 today!"
Half joking of course, but knowing it was a chance.

After each goal, I'd comment "8 more"..."7 more..."
...

Stood up to beat the crowd to the buses knowing there was a minute or two at best left, and just as I was about to turn my back... forward entry, Higgo handballs to Jack.

I shake the guys hand with a smug look on my face... told ya!!

Prob the Dreamtime game , we were bloody unstoppable that night , dishing out a heck of a hiding to a side that had plenty of fanciers heading in , apart from that seeing the improvement in our young players in Higgo. Rioli short et al and where our clubs stands fills me with confidence we will be amongst the genuine contenders once again

Even though it was the second time we played them - how good was Dan Rioli’s chase down tackle on Saad?

Sensational , was really happy with dans return , he played twice as well as I’ expected and looks likely to spend some quality midfield time

I also loved a goal we kicked vs Geelong in the wet where I think it was Lambert and Rioli running the ball along the MCC wing boundary before Rioli ran inside 50 after an exquisite tap on from Jack, tackled a Cats player won the free and then kicked a goal to seal the game in the last q.
At that point, I remembered what a gun this kid really is.
