Where do we fit Brockman?That highlights package has got me even more excited . He is going to be a weapon. His mobility and reach looks elite, his kicking is outstanding for a big man, just like Buddy’s field kicking. Easily fits in the forward line now and it is not too big as all are mobile.
FF Breust, Lewis, Kozi
HFF Wingard, Jeka, Gunston,
That is one impressive forward line.
Both which is really pleasing, 30 contested 70% leading like Dunstall only gets higher up and marks out front from the few games i have watched this year on tv.For regular BHH watchers, is he getting his goals from lead up marks, contested situations or in play?
O'brien is quick enough to play as a flanker. His pressure is actually pretty good too. But with him going back on the weekend it opens the door to playing an extra tall forward either way.It should not be that hard a decision given where we are at, but it is!
Fantastic that we can afford to do this. Our midfield lacks class and Chad oozes that. He's getting a bit frustrated playing forward too so I think it's a win all 'round.Good problem to have, Brockman could take that spot of Wingard, and Wingard goes midfield. Brockman I think will turn into a midfielder down the track, explosive speed and great skills, made for the midfield.
What i love most about Cornes' assessment of our list is he chooses arbitrary measures like age or draft pick used - never assesses the actual talent.
I remember a quote from Robert Walls commentating one day when Roughead got injured while playing in the ruck.Not yet but wondering if he could be relief ruck down the track with his kicking skills
Yeah Thorp had all the tools, all the baggage that came with Thorp really stopped him from having a good AFL career sadly.Plus the skills on both sides, and beginning of a strut! We can only hope. But also temper expectations - Thorpe was not so different at the same stage.
Like Jeka who we got in the Rookie draft compared to national draft, North got Carey for a package of chips in the Longmire deal.O'brien is quick enough to play as a flanker. His pressure is actually pretty good too. But with him going back on the weekend it opens the door to playing an extra tall forward either way.
Damn Jeka's highlight reel looks imposing.
Hard to make a true judgment given the AFL quality backs can shut anyone down with help.
He does look to do a lot of things super well though, and those hands are sticky.
