Thought the Duncan hit was nothing, unlucky fine


Sent from my iPhone using BigFooty.com
Me too, 2 hard nuts ferocious at the pill, Probably a soft free but Cotch would have loved copping his best hit and then getting up with a giggle and not a hair out of place on his pompadour.

Kid has talent , Very excited about Hugo and what he might become
Very very good size
Watching the scratch match highlights, Higgins looks unfit.
Looks like you don't need to worry about Higgo's fitness. Here is the official summary from people who actually saw the scrimmage match first hand and not just the seconds that you saw of him in the highlights. Do you have any more insights to share from the highlights?

Jack Higgins
“Looked dangerous, playing half-forward pretty much the whole game. He kicked four goals and had some really good moments with his speed out the back and beating his opponent back towards goals.”

Scratch match v Geelong player summary
Xavier Clarke provides a summary of how the Tigers’ players performed in Saturday morning's scratch match against Geelong.
By Richmond Media



VFL and development coach Xavier Clarke provides a summary of how the Tigers’ players performed in Saturday morning's scratch match against Geelong on the Gold Coast.
Patrick Naish

“Played the majority of the game down back, and a little bit of time on the wing. He continued to work on stepping into contests and that’s a part of his game which he has improved in. We all know that he can use the ball well when he does get the ball in hand and plays to his strength.”

Dave Astbury
“Played his first game since a knee injury in Round 4. He played the first half and looked good in the contest at times and controlled the backline as best he could. He took a couple of nice contested marks which was great, and it was good to see him back out on the park, although only being a half.”




Jack Higgins
“Looked dangerous, playing half-forward pretty much the whole game. He kicked four goals and had some really good moments with his speed out the back and beating his opponent back towards goals.”

Josh Caddy
“Played majority of the game forward. Had moments in the game where he impacted really well, and around the ball, so it was good to see him get out there and have a full game under his belt, coming off a minor hamstring setback. He will be better off for the run, which is great to see.”

Riley Collier-Dawkins
“Playing really good footy at the moment. His contest work has been fantastic. He finished the game with eight clearances and six tackles playing like a big-body mid, which is great, and he was rewarded with a pretty nice centre-square bounce goal, which was great to se
e.”



Thomson Dow
“Obviously came back from AFL level, and he had moments around the ball and does look dangerous around stoppages using his speed. It was great to see him show some of his strength in that part of the game.”

Fraser Turner
“Played down back and does accumulate the ball. He was really good with his patterning in offence and shows that with his possessions and so forth. He is working on his contest and defensive pressure which is pleasing to see as well.”

Luke English
“Played forward and mid, he was really good around the ball and he cracks in. He’s a workhorse, and we love to see him working towards his strength in that part of his game.”

Nathan Broad
“Played majority of the game on the wing, and at times second ruck, and played that role really well. To come back from AFL level, he certainly is a standout in terms of the way he plays, and with his energy and direction, so it was great to see him have an impact on the game.”

Will Martyn
“He is a pretty solid player as an inside-mid and we think he’s going to be a good player for us in the future, as he’s showed some really good glimpses of his hands in contest which is his biggest strength. He will continue to grow.”

Mabior Chol
“Kicked five goals and it was a pretty dominant performance for him playing majority forward. I think the pleasing thing was him taking the eight contested marks, which is a highlight of his, but his ability of being able to run and jump at the ball was certainly his biggest strength. We got to see that on the weekend which was great.”




Ryan Garthwaite
“Played the second half, where he took over from Dave Astbury and had some really good moments in the contest showing aggression with his spoil and 1v1, and never-give-up attitude.”

Derek Eggmolesse-Smith
“Showed his strength with rebound off half-back, his link-up, and ability to use the ball and find a spare, which was pleasing to see, and him joining our attacks. He had a good impact across half-back.”

Hugo Ralphsmith
“Played more defensively this time as a half-back. We are trying to find a spot for him where he plays his best footy, and he certainly has some really good strengths, but has been moved around, so half-back/wing/half-forward. He will continue to develop his game.”

Ben Miller
“Played the majority of the match in the ruck and had moments. I thought he competed pretty well in terms of when the ball hit the ground and good follow up. He played a different role than what he usually does, but had a great attitude, and I thought had moments in the game where he showed some of his strengths also.”

My head is hurting thinking about selection this week and moving into the finals.
So many different ways we can go and really good problem to have.
It's unbelievable the level of depth that we have. Unfortunately, there are going to be a few disappointed players in the coming weeks when Dave, Edwards and Prestia look to come back in. Broad played really well so he may also come into calculations. Not sure about Caddy though first full game back since his hammy.
Was happy to see Prestia in those pics, Dimma said he will play a scrimmage game on the bye weekend before finals.

After starting his career as a forward, Baker’s move to defence has been an inspired one and he has to be regarded as one of the most improved players in the competition. Baker, who was selected in the 40-man 22under22 squad in recognition of his growth, demonstrated his courage by regularly standing in the hole in front of Tom Hawkins and preventing him from getting easy access to the football. Baker finished with 17 disposals to be one of the Tigers’ best in an impressive win over the Cats.
