Gibbons was around 5th or 6th in the league at around 16km for rnd 5. Walshy is no 2 in the league being Whitfield for distance covered.

Gibbons has been played out of position and does his best work up the ground getting the ball/linking up and then floating back down forward...thats how he won two Listons.
This pressure forward role is just a waste of his ability and anyone who watched him play at Willy will know he can run all day..

And wasn’t that great to hear?

Getting the Terrier on board is one reason why I am confident that we’re on the right track.

Any why (kind of) winning games consistently is almost inevitable.

Our best 22, in decent form, is formidable.

Yet to see the best of Marchy, the Guv, Charlie, Cuners, Willo, Kennedy, Setters, SoJ, Special K etc.

There will be no punts. Jack Russell made it clear on his injury update that the focus is on getting players right to go and stay in once they come back from injury (eg Marchbank). He said its all about getting loads into them so they can stay on the park. He said this in reference to Macreadie and Willo. Its a precise science and we now have the best in the business, lets back him in I say. He also said this week we will have our lowest injury rate in a while so its working.

July 22, 2018,

vs Hawthorn.

Matthew Kennedy - 29 disposals, 4 tackles, 1.1 goals.

Cam Polson - 15 disposals (career best), 3 tackles and 1 goal.

But world's apart.

Robert Heatley Stand / Re: VFL Round 3 NBs vs Collingwood
« Last post by DJC on Today at 08:03:55 PM »
I have always appreciated RiverRat’s brutal analyses of NBs players but everyone sees the game differently and I am looking forward to Josh Fraser’s report.

I’m not sure whether Matthew Kennedy will have an impact at our club but, in the limited, injury-hampered time he has had so far, he has shown a great deal more than Nick Graham ever did.  He may be a depth player but we won’t lose much if Kennedy gets a call up.

Kerr impresses me as a bloke who reads the game well and gets to where the ball is heading.  He also makes good decisions and has a footballer’s head on his shoulders.

I know that statistics can be misleading but it’s worth looking at the hitout stats; Phillips - 30, Lynch - 28, Lobbe - 23, and Reid - 6.  Lynch did get a lot of the ball (17 disposals to 17 by Phillips and Lobbe) but Lobbe kicked a goal and probably should have got more.

As for Fasolo, it is quite clear that he was added to the list to provide an experienced head and reliable goal kicker.  It’s a bit early to write him off but I would be more than happy for our youngsters to keep him out of the 22.

Robert Heatley Stand / VFL 2019 Rd 4: Northern Blues vs. Werribee

This game was originally slated for Sat at Preston, but the Preston ground is having issues at the moment. Therefore this game is at Carlton, at 1400 on Saturday.

And there is no need to rush him, nor Macreadie for that matter. The latter shapes as Jones' replacement when the time comes (good few years yet hopefully)?
Russell will eventually overtake BB and SOS as the most important person at our club. I reckon we will eventually see our side as being very  durable, even the likes of Tractor and Marchy, all thanks to Jack.

I reckon they ran far harder too.
Would love to see the GPS comparisons of a few players

I'd almost take the punt and play him off the bench, be a good player for the Hawks Henderson who seems in rare form this season...
