It happens with some blokes the better the level the better they perform. And Lewy would be aware that time is running out if he doesn't make a fist of it this yearI have to admit that Lewis Young did make the match committee look a bit stupid today. However by all accounts he hasn't exactly been dominating VFL so it would have been hard to predict that he was capable of a performance like that. I also thought Keath played his best game for the club today. Everyone wants to talk sh*t about our backline but they held up bloody well today.
Playing as a mid would definitely help with building a tank and also sharpen contested work at ground level. Hope he can make the jump soon.Weightman been playing a lot of midfield, I wonder if that’s to fast track his tank to get him into the side. His defensive pressure is elite and he’s got tricks around goals. Probably not the silkiest/cleanest player but I think he could do some good things in this forward line.
They don’t need to fight for a position. Should be Keath Gardner Young in the backline if Young continues his good work. With Crozier Daniel Williams Duryea the other backmen.The young of old was pretty inconsistent. On a bad day, he was very bad. With Gardner, he plays the structures and is getting better every game. Apart from his first handful of games, he hasn’t had his pants pulled down after that. It will be a good problem to have if they are both capable and battling it out for the key back position.
Bevo wasn’t the only one not rating Ryder at the time including HinkleyYou’re wrong mate. I know for a fact that some of our recruiting team wanted Paddy Ryder when he was available but Bevo wasn’t keen. We missed an opportunity there and think Bevo has been a fan of Martin for years so that helped him get to us.
I think it is more about making the team more complete and dangerous up front.I'm not saying Scott played anything but a poor game but people are measuring with the wrong yardstick. We're not lacking for disposal winners in this team, and it's not as if he's a weak link in a team that's failing to beat the opposition in total disposal H2H.
Yeah, Dogs have been after Stef for at least 4 years.I thought Stef Martin said in his radio interview that the Dogs had been trying to pry him out of Brisbane for the last 2-3 years. I think we can accept that we (the club) knew it was an area of concern some time ago...but they couldn't land their man...till this year. Timing is everything though and this is probably the best year for him (Martin) to arrive. Timmy has been to the school of hard knocks over the last couple of years but I suspect the pay off is this year and beyond.
The way I remember it was he was our first choice that draft but Melbourne gave up a future first to get him. When Pickett was gone we then took Weightman as a small forward.It’s a shame we didnt get Pickett I know we were keen
Sure but the 2nd was a joy. Watching 3 seriously competitive tall forwards. Wow. I’ve never seen that in 50 years of watching the boys.I enjoyed the previous two weeks immensely, and as I said, we're finding other ways to win which is great.
But I've had more fun in a dentist chair than I did watching the last qtr....
That's only up to Rd 3 isn't it?View attachment 1100191
Dale, #1 ranked general defender through four rounds. Would never have guessed he could be this good. I was loudly complaining about robbing peter but the three bigs are taking care of business up front.
I still think a couple more genuine crumbing forwards would take us to a whole nother level but I am happy to say that I was completely wrong about moving Dale back.
