I think he just braced over the ball for the contact, then when it didn't come, picked it up and played on. So it depends on whether you call bracing for contact first, and not leaving yourself open by going straight for the ball, baulking, or not being dumb.
Could be a good game at home to rack up the %%%%%...
The Roadkill reckon they're in with a chance?
However Shep was saying on radio, that the excitement was noticeably building within the team,
with only a few games left to finals.
We might see that excitement manifest itself on Sunday?
He also commented on the added pressure this year, to perform their roles well,

This was a team many had in their top four at the start of the year so it we better not get our heads too far up our own arses - the stats below indicate they match up pretty well against us. That said I think our forwardline is the difference and conversely Adelaide will struggle to score unless Tex and Betts have a field day. I'm particularly hoping to see Masten, Kennedy, Sheed, Jetta and Hurn find some form after being a bit down last week.
