Farewell Mitch - The last of the 80's forwards......gone.

Bags, Myers and now Mitch.......i don't like these developments down Tulla way. Next they'll be footing Zaka outta the joint.

Probably unlucky but I just don’t think he could ever play a role for a genuinely good side. Just no ability to win a contest.
Any stats to back that up or just an opinion?
I seem to remember him winning his fair share. The fact he can go back and win plenty of ball should have been enough for the Dons to keep him on as depth.

Thought he would get a year more but not unhappy with this decision.

Goes missing when the pressure builds. ( not the only one).

How do you back that up with stats? He averaged 3 times the uncontested possessions as contested this year is that the stat?

He’s very bad at competing up forward, he doesn’t attack the aerial ball and gives up on contests far too often and easily.

Brown took 96 marks this season, 8 contested. McKernan by contrast was 38 of 81.
