His wife and him are pretty settled. Would need to offer double. Has some side interests which he makes decent coin on as wellOur offer to him will be getting larger by the day.
He’s worth more than Coniglio and he’s getting 1.4m per season deals thrown at him. I hope we are considering a similar sized deal.
We won’t get him but geez he’s well rounded. Contested marks, on the lead, tackling, ground ball all well above average in all facets.
To me thats a good thing. Not that he makes mistakes but the fact that he always seems to be involved when a critical play is happening. One of the biggest problems forwards can have is not being involved in the play if they are not kicking goals. Darling is often still involved when the chips are against him.Yeah this, very good player who has a knack for producing the unforgettable mistakes.
Also with no stratton (who usually does well on JD), they would have looked to exploit young O'Brien.Was it just me or did others notice Kennedy roaming further up the ground to assist with defence (when Haw had the ball)/lead up marking (when we had it) which left Darling more isolated up forward and us not having 2 or 3 talls flying for the same ball & spoiling each other/dragging their defenders to the contest?
Maybe a product of Allen playing in defence.
