Hi Roo crew. How did Jy go today? Gonna be Jet this boy.
Buggered if I know.
I agree, I can't see how anybody could knock Hayden on yesterday's performance; first up as a centre mid, for a fair part of the game with Larkey as ruck (!) often against Crouch and still won his share of it; had some real instinctive passages with Simpkin that looked like they'd been playing for years together. People have criticised his kicking, which I must admit I didn't notice at the ground, but his clearance work was a clear positive for the day. Hopefully we won't be cursed with injuries and he can hone his craft in the VFL, but definitely worth persisting with in the rolePerplexing that you can label a 21 year old with 9 games under his belt as a plodder.
Even more perplexing to do so right after playing well in his natural position for the first time, against senior opposition.
I counted 6 clearances today against the likes of B.Crouch & J.Steele, without Goldstein.
