one of those games i listed above he had 23 uncontested possessions, and still only went at 63%...
given that was his BEST DE% in the month i looked at, its not far off accurate in saying you may as well flip a coin when giving him the ball, as to whether the team will retain possession post his disposal.
Aren't these stat's a little out of context though? Our midfielders have clearly been instructed to move the ball long down the line.. The plan isn't always to hit up a target and retain possession, but to create another stoppage with territory gained. I'm not saying his disposal has been good, but if retaining possession isnt the player or the coaches Intention then blind reading a DE% stat isn't really telling you how effective the player has been with the ball.

a 40+m kick to a contest is deemed effective

Shame that Lemmens did the exact same injury. Had surgery this time. Did he have surgery on it the first time around?

Collins is a massive loss, 2 KPD out for an extended period of time.

Sam Day or more likely Burgess could find a reprieve and come in to play KPD. Not many other options.

Touk is touch and go.

Hanley unlikely to be up for this week.

Crossley, Fletcher and Ah Chee all back and healthy this week which is good news. Good boost for the reserves.

Just watching VFL Gameday with that imbecile Nepotism McLachlan hosting it and on comes some young lady with an injury report and I thought oh good I’ll get an Ainsworth update
All they did was talk about VFL players like Guthrie and Scrimsook who had a headache and a question on Daniher’s genetics but nothing about Ben.
VFL media sucks.
Go shove it Gil.
