Yes but will need sign-off to play against Footscray if we play them again in VFLSo like the old days when you had mid-season transfers, does Boyd on week play for Footscray and then the next week just plays for Carlton ?
The only thing that comes to mind is that I remember my Dad used to use a snail bait that was called defender.What is this thing - a defender?
Well, that's different then. If he's transitioning into a genuine small defender with pace, I'm all for it. When was the last time we had someone who could play on the quick small forwards in a close checking capacity? Won't have to play Plowman on them.
I really, really don't mind that. He looks like half forward might be a decent go, opposite Fogarty.Probably worth noting that the club write-up on him suggests that we see him being part of our forward mix, not playing down back.
Reckon he's just pretty outside and doesn't find himself in positions where he needs to tackle. Coming from the Bulldogs/Footscray system I doubt he has any issues tackling, at this stage he is mostly a receiver though.I really, really don't mind that. He looks like half forward might be a decent go, opposite Fogarty.
He's also doesn't play as short as he is, either. Got a good leap, and more than willing to go over and through you to punch the ball without infringing. Good gather of the loose ball too, and unafraid to use the left.
I'm trying to see the problem/inadequacies here. He's quick, he gathers the loose ball, pretty good and long kick, agile, good at defending overhead. Is he just not a good tackler? Doesn't get his own ball?
