#14 Jordan Ridley


#1202

I rate him higher than those two allready, looks to be a very good player. If he stays injury free he will be firmly inside the best 22 prettt quickly.


#1203

So with Remdan and Gleeson off the injury list next week and playing a practice VFL match, there’s going to be some tough competition for spots. Riddles will have to be on his game.


#1204

He looks the part. They may play different roles but he’s an upgrade on Gleeson who I think is a bit soft (based on his reluctance to tackle / put his body on the line)


#1205

If anything he offers less in the contested work than Gleeson. (who is definitely not soft btw)


#1206

Gleeson actually tackles more than Hooker, Hurley and Conor.
Are you calling Conor soft?
To his face?
Go on I dare you!

Also repeatedly backs into packs for marks or making a contest. Coaches like Marty for a reason.


#1207

Love it, think he looks good. And I also think he was very stiff to be rested after two to three good games last year then never brought back in.


#1208

Ridley is the form player & should be given the opportunity ahead of a recovering and fragile Gleeson.

Gleeson’s best is pretty good though - his intercept marking and his courage are a thing to behold, given his shape even more notable.

I just think that Ridley will prove that he can do everything Gleeson can, but then some and in a mans body.

I for one think that Ridley’s ceiling is much higher than Gleeson.
Gleeson though when fit has a role to play across half back. I can see Ridley becoming a talk mid or genuine utility an upgrade on Guelfi

Ridley has earned the spot, great for him to get a chance to cement it like redman did last year.

I have no doubt if redman beats the door down in the first few round they can move Ridley to the wing and have both in the side.
