The AFL.com.au highlights video doesn't show much defensive pressure, but the highlights video on the Bulldogs website does. I'm not sure why you've highlighted tackling as an issue? He can do the defensive stuff too. Am I missing something here?DOWNS
That's exactly why I put "defensive pressure, second efforts" in the UPS section. His stats show though he doesn't stick that many tackles. Whether you think that's important when his defensive pressure is good is up to you.The AFL.com.au highlights video doesn't show much defensive pressure, but the highlights video on the Bulldogs website does.

EDIT: Found the footage, see for yourself. There are multiple defensive efforts on display in there.
I remember reading somewhere that Cody does have very good defensive pressure, and they explained his low tackle numbers with his relentless attack at the ball.I know his tackling numbers aren't great but from the very brief vision he at least looks to tackle with intent.
That is to say he tackles to win the ball back rather than lots of stoppage tackles to lock the ball in. And the repeat efforts were very pleasing. I feel like that absolute will to get the ball is something that can't be taught - where field kicking for instance can be.
You will be brother. Im sensing something special with this list.I saw him on Ch 7 tonight. What a joy to see his own joy on being drafted. When I was his age "being drafted" had a whole different meaning. Thank God these guys don't have to worry about that and can enjoy their youth. I hope I'm around long enough to see their dreams of a premiership come true.
That's exactly what I thought when I heard that. Actually I had thought about being a dolphin trainer before I became a teacher. However, my experience with anything salt water at that stage was nil. And Lake Michigan smelt(look 'em up) are a bit too small to train successfully.Love Island?
