I think Reeves will surprise a few here, similar to Gunston’s performance on the weekend.
ROB had 9 disposals on the weekend against WC, they are not huge numbers.

He better be. I am not a stats guy so no matter what stats you throw at me with regards to Center Bounce Clearance or pressure rating etc etc I am firmly of the opinion our little form revival started with Meek. It was like some switch was turned on and Meek all of a sudden became a more imposing aggressive ruck man and that mindset was replicated by our mids (of course having Day back also helped) So long story short..Reeves please bring your angry pills and A game.
 
Meek is certainly a big loss and I am not a huge fan of Reeves but there are far worse backup rucks in the AFL. The fact we're all devastated speaks more to the quality of Meek rather than Reeves being a terrible second option.

Can anyone speak to his efforts around the ground during his recent stint at Box Hill?
Not a massive fan of Reeves either but what a luxury to have him come straight in to to replace an injured Meek. We are starting to build great depth amongst a very young squad
 
I’ve been hard on Reeves but he is at the very least a good back up option.

He doesn’t have the ability to impact around the ground like Meek but his shear size does seem to wear down the opposition ruckman. He’s never going to be a high possession ruck but he makes it hard for the other ruck to be this as well.

So hopefully we can aim for a nil all draw in the ruck which I would take hands down at this stage.

Let’s not forget the absolute hidings we got in the ruck a couple of years ago when we were forced to play Nash and Kossy up against the likes of Witts!

Scrimmers on the wing is interesting.

I always thought he had the skillset to play on the ball, he's very good with ball in hand.

He did pretty much steal Hoynes stat from a few weeks back . It's a good one though
Was referring to alot of the generic stats we are bottom 4 in all of them but would be much higher the past 4-6 weeks which Sando didn't really go into. It's not just post clearance ground ball gets as to why we're winning games. It's helping yes but it's the incremental improvements in other areas. Better at clearances, marks inside 50 scoring from turnovers etc.

Moore would be the shortest CHF ever

Teams never line up as named
