Jetta has gone from whipping boy to essential cog of our side. Reckon all the boys love him around the club and he's providing strong leadership for Ryan, Rioli and now Cameron. Uncle Lewie.
There was something I saw post the GF where he went over to Ryan at 3/4 time and told him to not worry about the dropped mark and his moment will come. Unreal leadership by him.

Post of the year as far as I’m concerned. Take the rest of the day off.

Wellingham was in the same boat where he was pretty average for 2013-2014 but was pretty integral to our 2015 push for a flag. Who remembers Sheppingham down back? It was awesome to watch those two stream down back.
Still can't help but feel Shards was a massive waste of potential. At his best he was 90% of Jetts offensively but a lot more physical as a defender. I wonder if that trampoline accident was a sliding doors event because I can't help but feel his kicking after a solid 2015 was like his foot was full of painkillers every game.

I think Duggan and Cole getting to that age where they could hold their own in the contest a lot better made a big difference for Lewis this year too. It meant he could play more of his natural, freer wheeling game without having to keep an eye on the younger guys so much.

I’d go along, with that being perhaps his best game for us, tonight.

Was fantastic.

After a couple of ordinary seasons, He is now (12 months)playing like the Jetta we hoped we traded for.
