While he is getting all these surguries can we attach blade runner legs (minus the gun) so he can get off the treadmil and at least keep up with sanfl midfielders. That would be nice.
brizzy put a ferrari badge on a leyland p76.. we fell for it.

Can suck it!
After seeing Rocky plod around like he had concrete in his boots last year I was concerned. A massive relief to see him cover the ground like he did today. Exactly the game we recruited him for.

Now the test is for him to bring it into the season proper, remember that Watts managed to snag 6 in a preseason game last year and he was average as **** in the regular season.

You watch those nature documentaries on Discovery Channel?

You see the one about lions?

You got this lion. He’s the king of the jungle, huge mane out to here. He’s laying under a tree, in the middle of Africa. He’s so big, it’s so hot. He doesn’t want to move. Now the little lions come, they start messing with him. Biting his tail, biting his ears. He doesn’t do anything. The lioness, she starts messing with him. Coming over, making trouble. Still nothing.

Now the other animals, they notice this. They start to move in. The jackals; hyenas. They’re barking at him, laughing at him. They nip his toes, and eat the food that’s in his domain. They do this, then they get closer and closer, bolder and bolder.

Till one day, that lion gets up and tears the **** out of everybody. Runs like the wind, eats everything in his path.

Cause every once in a while, the lion has to show the jackals, who he is.
Rocky showed you who he is today.

That was the rock of old. He is such a smart player. He’s not blessed with speed or power but he gets to right spots and the amount of fines he hit up a short kick today to a target was what I remember him for in his bris days.

Hope he carries it into the season proper

I'd love to know exactly what went wrong last year. Was it injury restricting his mobility, lack of fitness, a combination of both? 2018 Rocky was so far removed from the real Rocky that its crazy.

Was telling people last season that wasn't the real Rocky. came to the club needing a post season opp on the shoulder, then did his knee and struggled from there on.

Went to JLT2 to see how Rocky moved and knew watching him he was over the knee injury. Was absolutely everywhere.
Lets hope he can carry this form throughout the season now.
