I hope Lycett continues his Primus physical type dominance of grabbing the ball out of a ruck and getting a clearance - and this week against a skinny kid like English gets 12-15 clearances rather than just a s**t load of hit outs like Grundy got. It would be good practice for the big games and finals.

Although he could also get a s**t load of hit outs and join Grundy in this exclusive club given he got 24 disposals, 41 HO's, 11 HOAdv and 9 clearances against Geelong but no goals.

Those of you who read and recall my posts know I love ruckmen. See them as fundamental to building a winning team. I love the big man with the big heart and the big underpants.

Lycett is influencing this team like Primus did between 2001-03 years before he was cruelled by knee injuries.

I put my head in my hands when I though he had done his posterior cruciate ligament, and not out just for the game but the season after that knee on knee clash. But he got up, went back on, used his brains and didnt try and jump into O'Brien but moved in a way where he could compete and protect his knee. Then as he got more confident he started to dominate O'Brien.

In a team that has looked bereft of leadership the last few years, this man is standing up and leading.

Great post.
I wonder if he's even suprised himself to discover how impacting he can be?
The ruck quality in the AFL this year has been amazing and Lycett is really shining.
