Get Patton in and it gives us more options, O’Brien has turned into a great swingman. The more we can utilise Timmy’s strengths all around the ground the better we will be for it
Timmy is our answer for CHB. Patton FF, and Lewis CHF.
Nope, it just means that instead of scraping the barrel for talls, we suddenly have options and depth.
Good question. I don't think so. O'Brien isn't and won't be a key forward for us. He is one of the few genuine swingmen in the comp. I see him continuing to be used up forward and down back as needs require. That is the versatility that Clarko loves. Expect to continue to see O'Brien, Sicily, and Gunston be used at different ends from week to week. I also reckon Scrimshaw will be trialled up forward at some point, giving us potentially 4 mobile talls who can play at either end. That's a ridiculous amount of versatility and I bet it becomes one of our greatest strengths.
I think rather the last couple of weeks have shown that now he has the confidence in himself he can be effective either forward or back and Clarko can use him as the game dictates. His confidence grew weekly when playing down back and he finally looked like he felt he belonged. This has translated to a really good last two weeks in the forwardline. His contested marking has been outstanding and he is finally attacking the marking contest.The last couple of weeks have shown that he’s definitely more effective up forward. Still very shaky down back. I think we’ll be able to find a decent key back to cover him. He’s now flying for his marks, he has confidence and he’s got defenders scared.
If Timmy goes back, then I can maybe see the merit in two key forwards. He can pinch hit in the ruck with relieves TOBObviously if it’s the deal that gets cogs over the line then I’m more than happy for him to come across and chew up abit of the cap. If not I’m still not sold
Every game is going to be tough, but we have the list to get this done.Looking at the draws for the next few weeks, we’re in this up to our eyeballs. We have to Brisbane and GWS, but our destiny is absolutely in our own hands.
The teams between 6-10 seem to play each other a lot, so it’s not a matter of whether ‘results fall our way’. As long as we win we’re going to make it.
Now let’s see if we can keep this form up. I reckon a lot of teams would be nervous to play us in finals.
