I think it might have been Margetts who did that?Wouldn't mind a gif of that ump laughing at Walters and telling him to get up
I've long been under the impression that Vic Metro/Country kids are waaaay overrated.Pace of development is impressive, becoming a versatile player. Easy to forget he’s just 22.
Still needs to clean up his set shot routine.

When you regularly see him taking d50 goal saving marks - you know his workrate is through the roof.His hard work around the ground has impressed me more than kicking goals. I think Cripps hard work has really rubbed of onto him because late in games he down back helping out which is great to see.
In the 2018 Grand Final, there was a moment Liam Ryan would’ve liked to have over again where he didn’t bodyline the ball and dropped a mark. You can’t have that being your legacy. When it was his turn to put his body on the line, in the biggest game of his life to that point, he didn’t do it. Things like that can haunt you, unless you make good on them.
Today, Liam Ryan created a memory that may end up defining him more than his big mark with a foot in the face of Max Gawn, or his role in the passage that led to Dom Sheed slotting a goal (but probably not).
Today, when Liam Ryan ran back with the flight of the ball, launched into the air with the pack coming the other way, he dispelled any doubts anyone had lingering around his courage. His eyes never left the ball. His steps were not short. His leap was with purpose, and the mark… well, it won’t win mark of the year, but it probably should.
For all the flying Liam Ryan does, this is the mark I will remember him for. Strong, committed and courageous – it was a beauty.
