Fantastic game after the week off. and taking on Eddie Betts. He looked like he was up to pace straight away and although he shanked a few kicks he never gave up and was super solid. Almost took a great grab on the forward 50 early in the first quarter, I think. To keep superstar Eddie to no goals and seven touches was great to see. The commentators kept trying to talk up how wonderful he was and so skillful. Wasn’t Eddie just great when he threw it to himself on the boundary line and got away with it?
McG’s recovery and second and third efforts are what we need to see from all our players. If we could have that sort of intensity across the field we would be unstoppable. He is the sort of player who will make the other players better as they try to keep up with him. You can see that the rest of the team look for him and have no issues in hitting him up in the back 50.
Can’t wait till he feels he can take the game on more and use his pace and creativity. It will be great to see him build in to the midfield and play with the likes of Zach, Hepps and Parish. We will have some of the fastest hands going around.
