Im more looking at the trend of our mids going to water and unable to turn the tide of it in games. I should have stated in and out of finals, just finals are more pronounced in that finals pressure should not come as a surprise. Only really JPK can handle it, our match v Port Adelaide is a good example, not sure if the TV coverage showed it but SPP ran with and niggled and beat up Parker all night long and I was thinking the man needs to put the kid in his place, a lot of small punches and arm chops all night towards Parker and not much of a reply. Mitchell is a hard nosed player, as is Miles. At GWS inception Miles was brought in in part to try to shield some of the younger pups from gettig bashed on field as was McDonald at its onset.Mitchell standing up in finals when our other mids went missing. Okay the 2016 gf is one but jpk and heeney were certainly not awol. Parker played injured and hanners was quiet before injury. You insinuated that mitchell did this in other finals when we were getting beaten up, im just curious as to which finals your referring to?
