    Hopefully that lasts all season. I’m worried it’ll relapse after some successful games

    Did throw his head back once. Did look bad. Did annoy me.

    I saw it. Blight on his game. It must be a mental thing because he'll stand under a pack without fear.

    Jack is a second option/high half forward/whatever you want to name him who will always be an afterthought when JK is nearby. He's still highly effective and would have kicked way more goals if he'd played in front of a Hawthorn type midfield who use the ball well so far in his career.

    Comment in today’s West pre-game preview page, ‘Darling ranked equal first for contested marks this season’

    Thought he had started well but ....... gee whiz that’s bloody terrific.

    Jack hasn't played this well since 2012. Very good signs
