Lovely fella, fantastic spoiler, all round good bloke. Came back last year in a terrible condition and by all accounts has done the same again this year just in a different location. Go back and watch Doug's games in 2019, he's quick off the mark but he lacks stamina - so many games where Doug's has his hands on his hips and isn't going for the second effort. How long do you keep a guy in your side who gets on well with others and has great potential? We've dodged a bullet and we have 3 first round draft picks. Credit where credit is due - good job by PAFC.

So Dougs wasn't lapped twice but was lapped once by each of the top two runners and still finished in under 12 minutes for a 3km time trial.

Dooogs should be more worried about doing repeat 300m and 400m sprints than 3km time trails

i'd hope the entire list got at least 10:30 - 11 minutes. And most sub 10. Running 3km shouldn't be hard for AFL players.

4 minutes per kilometre (12 minutes) for an elite AFL athlete is garbage. Kane Cornes would run the 3km in 9:15...3 minutes and 5 seconds per kilometre.

Running under 11 minutes would mean you have to run 3 minutes 40 per kilometre.

Howard was running 400 m at 2 minutes 24 seconds on average. Which means that the two guys who lapped him finished under 9:36 - 3 min 12 second per kilometre.

"Under 12 minutes" (read 11:59) vs 9:36? When no other player on the St Kilda list was lapped? Their elite runners might be good, but that doesn't mean that Howard wasn't bad.

Yeah, I get your point. He left Ports so he is now a shit player.

His gone from being beaten by 800m by the rest of the squad to running a poor time. Keep spinning mate. :)
