Hill just realising these games matter now so he's pulling his fingers out. His performance next week will go a long way to justifying what we paid for him. Both trade wise and salary. Hanners too. Although him playing and helping us get into finals probably done enough tbh! Loved that we benched him when the game was iced. I'll take 55% game time all finals series.Thing I like about Hill of late, is he is finally getting his hands dirty, by tackling & harassing opposition players.
That was my only gripe about him earliier in the season, I thought he was too soft.
Now I’m starting to see why we paid the big moolah for him, can see him going up an extra notch in the next month.
Good spot. I didn't see how it worked start of the year (I think most were concerned here tbh) but wow that's some good tasting humble cake. Ryder just has moments of sheer brilliance. I haven't seen anyone post that gif oh him using his foot to get a hit out to advantage? I'll go find it. He kicks important goals, regularly. And Roma is something else. Only 50 games under his belt too. His upper limit is absurd.He just went to another level. To have a ruckman who can genuinely be a threat up forward is invaluable. And he would be one of the few in the comp who can actually do it as well.
The way we use him and Ryder together has been so good. It looked like Ryder took the majority of the ruck contests in the first half then Marshall took more in the 2nd half once Mummy was tired and was able to clear the ball himself multiple times.
