I assume you refer to his mental resilience...........cos his hamstring resiliance over the years hasnt been the best!!!
I'm only guessing but it feels like that back operation and associated issues was enough to make a normal man retire

Too much quality to just not keep around.
Not to mention he’s one of our own too from the beginning.

Definitely will be re-contracted.

so nice to see him play so well, I was worried the injuries had totally ruined him form wise. He was in full control, a commanding performance.

He is a little champ. How good is he and how much have we missed him. I think our only hope of going deep this year is if he, JDG and Stevo fire and create havoc. Our back halfback needs to just hold up.

There were posters preseason laughing at those of us who were suggesting this guy still has the potential to be 1 of the best small forwards in the league if he could get fit and healthy. Great to see him getting back to that. Still has improvement in him I reckon.

Brilliant performance.
That mark late and the unbelievable smother that was just sheer will to get there, first class.
the best thing about this is that it was so late in the game he was running at full pace and he dived. if anything was going to make the hamstring go POP then that was it

AS well as the obvious things, continually provided an aerial presence despite his lack of height and was very rarely outmarked, if at all.

And after the mark at HB he just ran and contested the next stoppage locking the ball in. Sheer desperation. So, so good to have him back to his best.
Scary thing for opposition clubs is that I don't think he's quite there yet. The unknown is just how much better he can be with the body issues he's dealt with.
