Jared Polec, "Dropped" can be a euphemism for all sorts of situations.

I've heard that Polec was asked to go back to the reserves and work on some very specific sets of skills, as in pestering and nagging, because they tried to use him to tag Cripps and he failed as he is a play fair type player, hardly a shock and awe result! Yet Polec was probably clearly and unequivocally Norps BoG after quarter time, even the media rated him as so! He was basically dropped for refusing to be a [email protected]#t! Don't be surprised if he wants out of Norp!

In the meantime the media lauded Pittard who basically helped lose Norp the game, and Jed Anderson who kicked, kidney punched and ankle tapped his way through the subsequent 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarter tagging of Cripps!

So would you take who hundreds of players rate the best in the comp (They can't vote for their own) or who coaches like Hinkley and Chris Scott rate the best?

Cottrell on Walters, anyone think this might be an option?

Nothing better than to have a young aerobic kid force a fragile oldie (one who may well be returning too soon) into a soft tissue injury from trying to shake off a kid he can't shake of like he did in the old days.

Not that I'm a bastard or anything like that!

I would give him at least some time on him. Good for his development! 😎

Cottrell is quite brave, and agile, Walters won't easily lose him in traffic and Walters' team-mates won't intimidate Cottrell. But of course you'd expect Walters to have an edge if he gets goal side of Cottrell one out, but that is probably true of many!

Walters is probably quicker, but he'll have to run hard all the time to get separation on Cottrell, and that'll take some of the sting out of Walters legs!

Polec isnt a tagger and not a physical player, it was a dumb move from Shaw considering Ratten showed how you curtail Cripps and the type of player you need. The old theory was you play an offensive player on Cripps to run off him as Cripps doesnt mind a man but that theory has been put to bed with all the successful close checking on Cripps of recent times
Polec wont be going anywhere with the money he is on...Nth are the kings of over paying average footballers..
 Would you show interest in Polec if Norp paid part of his wage?
