Hank Slattery says “Hi”


#4400

That’s always been a trend I’ve noticed with him, starts slow and comes home with a wet sail. Plays and same way he runs. It’s a good trait to have imo, plays his best when the game is up for grabs


#4401

I reckon we had Hank running through as a tagger once or twice.


#4402

I don’t recall Slattery ever “running” anywhere on a football field


#4403

Yeah he missed some targets but I’m more certain now that he’ll tear some games apart this season.


#4404

There was one point during the 3rd qtr he was streaming through the middle and proceeded to put the ball on tippa’s When he was against 2 players. Needs to be a hell of a lot smarter than that


#4405

He was better as a tagger than a backman IMO.


#4406

He needs to learn it like Ablett does when he is moving, holding it very deliberately and almost placing it on his boot


#4407

Its too late for him, you generally can’t fix kicking once they reach afl age.

That being said, we didn’t draft him for his kicking ability.


#4408

Like his mates he fumbled all day

The difference though is he always has a crack


#4409

Clug and Taranto dominated this week too while McGrath went full butter fingers


#4410

Is the aim of the number one pick to try and pick an elite player? Or a reliable player that is likely to get to 200 games without much fanfare?


#4411

When some of our contested mids actually win possession and feed it to him in space he will look a whole lot better.

I reckon he plays better in second half’s, becuase he realises he has to do it all by himself at that point.


#4412

Im not saying i would’ve drafted mcgrath, i was firmly Taranto > mcclug > setter > mcgrath


#4413

I don’t think I’ve ever seen him play so bad tbh

Though the entire team was mimicking each other’s fumbles so can’t put the whole blame on him


#4414

For all his faults during the game he did have a dip. Unlike most of the others.


#4415

His hands are so good in tight situations


#4416

Still needs to realise he’s faster than 80-90% of players. Pooped them a few times when he had opportunity to free himself.


#4417

Forget about the midfield. He is so much more valuable in the back line.


#4418

Idk, hard to kick the sealer from a BP
