In all honesty a ruckman successfully bouncing in those conditions was no mean feat given the distance between hand and ground.I was watching Scotty's run like PTSD dog with every Jasper Pittard clanger on the run ever flashing before my eyes
I expected to see the ball go skidding over the boundary line. Was amazed at his skill.
Yeah, exactly! He is capable no worries but it seems to me that he just thinks, "this is easy" and just kicks in a lackadaisical manner. Some one ought to have been right in his ear after the first shot.In the warm up he was doing exactly what you said. Followed through the kick and nailed them. It's a mental thing in the game.
His first shot he started too close to the man on the mark. The second one he started further back then only took a few steps. Mental focus, go through a routine.
GASP! Oh egads! My game plan is ruined! But what if... I were to employ assistant coaches and disguise it as my own coaching? Oh ho ho ho ho ho! Delightfully devilish, Kenny."I hope you're prepared for an unforgettable finals series!"
It was actually Travis Boak that just let Parish have a free run to the ruck contest. It was Rockliff moving in after Parish was already moving at full speed, Rocky who is standing pretty still has no chance.I've got Rockliff in my votes, but I didn't like his 1st quarter at all. He was running on the spot and Essendons first goal was because he couldn't defend a rover at a throw-in.
Ablett drafted 2001, Boak drafted 2006. I'd say Boak is in as good a physical shape as Ablett was at 32. It will be a mental thing if he wants to go longer.Boak at 32 years of age is having one of his best seasons ever. No signs at all of slowing down. He runs hard for 4 quarters.
On current form he has 2 years left, who knows maybe even more.
Said it last year, but he is Primusesque. He can physically bully his opponents. Lobbe never did that.ive questioned Lycett for being a bit Lobbesqe but that isn’t fair.
what Lycett is, is atypical Port ruckman, tough, leader and makes his team mates player better. He is Port
