One of our best performers today, finishing with 26 disposals (18 kicks, 8 handballs) at 65% efficiency, 14 score involvements, 3 goal assists, 9 marks, 3 tackles, 5 inside 50s and booting 2.3.

Jack did mention that having only 1 JLT match prior to today meant that his match fitness isn't quite 100% yet, but hey, those are still some pretty good numbers. I'll forgive the 3 behinds this week in that case. ;)

23 disposals (10 kicks, 13 handballs) at 78% efficiency, 2 goal assists, 7 score involvements, 3 marks, 2 tackles, 1 clearance and 5 inside 50's looks good on paper, but we can't forgive and forget the absolute train wreck of a performance from our team last Friday.

This is up a bit late, but better late than never.

17 disposals (4 kicks, 13 handballs) at 70%, 4 score involvements, 2 tackles and 2 inside 50's... not his best.

Getting on top of the Cats early on Sunday would be a much welcomed confidence boost.

Was a little disappointing, seemed rushed when he got the ball against the Crows, even to handball.

Was run with pretty tight but he everyone has a reasonably accountable direct opponent as a forward.

Jack ended the game against the Cats with 23 disposals at 56%, 5 score involvements, 2 tackles, 2 inside 50's, 1 clearance and 2 behinds. There was one point in the 3rd quarter (?) where he was running at 0% efficiency which is pretty concerning, especially for someone who we know can use the ball well but that issue seems to be affecting our whole side at the moment.

Seems to be struggling a bit this year . Is getting a bit of the ball but isn’t having the scoring impact we need which sounds like he is getting too far away from the goals . Then again he might have been told to get more upfield so it’s hard to put too much blame on him.

He is a little down overall on play, but thats partly because the team is also down.
He needs to improve his game when things aren't going so well.

He is getting enough shots on goal, just isn't converting. 6 behinds in last fortnight.

Also getting plenty of inside 50's , based on the stats, they must be going to opponents defense.

His Mojo MUST be somewhere, ffs someone pick it up and return it to him.
Just needs a couple easy goals...and then to slot an important one.

And then maybe the entire team playing better. Unfortunately I don't think Jack is the type to put the team on his shoulders and carry them home (well apart from that Dogs comeback game). But he'll lift to incredible levels if the rest get going.

Jack Billings had the ball on a string for Sandringham in its huge 122-point win over Frankston.

Dumped from the senior side after a lean year, Billings responded with 53 possessions and three goals.
