Sure, but, either he's being told to do that (which is the coaches' fault) or he's being told not to do that but ignoring the coaches' instructions, without consequences (which is also the coaches' fault).
I want Bassett gone as much as anybody but there are some elements of Charlie's game that are ingrained he's just not a natural hard leading forward, of course there are also things that he doesn't control like dickhead teammates kicking to him outnumbered when he's drawing a crowd and trying to be a decoy.. I've heard Bassett hint at this.

Can suck it!
I expect Dixon to finish his career playing more as the fwd/ruck. Whether that transition starts this year probably depends more on Georgiades and Finlayson than on Dixon himself.

He would be excellent at that role. He is a very good ruckman. It has been too dangerous to play him much in the ruck recently because of the risk to his body, and the fact that we had nothing really behind him in his position, but Marshall, another preseason in the gym for Georgiades and finlayson is a pretty handy tall bunch.

Oh well at least we have Finlayson, looking forward to see how he can fit in and help our team.


2 snaps on his right, including one from 50 is something I hadn't noticed before.

He definitely seems a class above what we have as a finisher.

I just read the news on the GWS Fan Forum regarding Kellie, the partner of Jeremy Finlayson battling colorectal cancer.
My thoughts are with them during this difficult time.
There is a support thread on GWS Fan Forum page, I'm unsure how to introduce that thread to this site so The Port Adelaide Community can support one of its own.

Jeremy's Instagram is now private (it wasn't until just recently), but there is a GoFundMe link there with more info about Kellie's situation:

My buddy Jeremy has now been handed a nice forward spot between Mitch and Marshall now that Dixon is on the outer for a bit. I'm very confident that he will cement his spot in our 2022 team in the forward line, this is his best position to develop his career.
