#14 Jordan Ridley - this AFL thing is pretty easy


#601

Possibly, though I have some faith in Crowe and he’ll have been training for six to eight weeks by round 1.

I’d also refer people to Jackie’s last training report wherein, although he “doesn’t like to single blokes out”, he did so re Ridley.


#602

For round 1 the opponent will have four tall forwards, so it may not be the solution for the following weeks. Also, no VFL match next week to expose any form.


#603

Class act, but not ready


#604

So… a smokey for round 1?


#605

Even with the current predicament I would be very surprised.

Woosha has a pretty clear hierarchy system where he goes with what he knows. That means Brown and Dea.

Ridley has had an injury interrupted preseason and still has a lot to work on in my opinion.


#606

Makes Marty Gleeson look like The Incredible Hulk. Not ready physically, but I do have high hopes for him given how he’s played in the VFL. A very cool customer…


#607

If it wasn’t for the interrupted pre season he’d be well in the mix given injuries to key backs.
Don’t forget some clubs last year ( Doggies for one) threw undersized tall defenders in to great effect.
Ridley has a similar strength in reading the play intercepting, and disposal.
I believe he’ll play better in the firsts than the Ressies.


#608

BRING


#609

I’m a big rap for this kid. Smooth as silk.


#610

Anzac Debut


#611

His name confuses me


#612

Apparently it hasn’t been mentioned that he had 27 touches in the VFL last week. Pretty impressive. Given this guy has some high end star potential I really hope he can get some senior games this year.


#613

Sennsible hair cut, bound to be a leader.


#614

As usual VFL stats seem questionable.
Footy live app has him down for 22 disposals.

Of course, Clarke seems to be widely reported as having 40 disposals, but footy live has 35, so who knows on both.

@theDJR doesn’t seem to do much on VFL game days. He should start taking stats so we can be sure. :slight_smile: I’ll go easy on him and just ask him to count possessions and tackles. Don’t worry about pressure acts and 1 percenters etc…


#615

Will need to get going soon to get another contract on today’s showing.


#616

Christ. 2nd year player coming back from extended injury after showing heaps of promise in his first year. Show some faith.


#617

FKG LOL


#618

Will take a lot away from playing on Fasolo. Gleeson still hasn’t mastered playing on smalls.


#619

hahaha. What a ridiculous comment


#620

Poor day at the office
