#15 Jayden Laverde - keeping it Green


#6971

People definitely potted him for his potential and ability. It was a joke as he’s clearly shown a lot when he’s not injured and stringing a couple games together.

Injury free, this guy could have already been close to a top 5 player for us IMO.


#6972

I still think he has the ability to play through the middle in spurts also. Big powerful lad should be playing the Hird type role as Stringer does.


#6973

Could be anything. It’s all about whether his body can hold up!


#6974

Yep, useless below his knees, turning circle of Adam McPhee or Scotty Lucas etc


#6975

Interesting Jobe said he was 193cm last night, anybody else hear that?


#6976

At the same time, I can understand Bombers fans being jaded about the high-potential, constantly injured kid. Cf Winders, Gumb, Demps, Myers et al.


#6977

Also that shot that hit the post must be a contender for Sam Pang’s point of the round.
Would have been a contender for goal of the round if he had of nailed it.


#6978

Taking the ■■■■? His turning circle was good enough to turn away from a tackler last night on 50 and then run in for a behind.

Not everyone has elite agility but his is definitely not a problem as he’s clearly providing a heap of pressure on the ground and winning the footy more importantly.


#6979

Yes we’ve definitely had our fair share. Happens to every club though. Only have to look at Hawthorn and Collingwoods picks over the years.


#6980

I’m just stating what others have stated about him, I love the bloke.

Have said since day 1 that he will turn out to be a better player than Langford


#6981

Looks like any agility issues in seasons previous were likely injury/confidence-related. After stringing a few games together, he looked reasonably mobile for 6’3 bloke last night


#6982

like the hair cut.

seems to be getting scoring opportunities up forward, sometimes makes something out of nothing, stringer like.


#6983

Not far from activating Beast Mode and becoming a real handful for oppo defenders.


#6984

Great overhead, good on the ground, his goal on the second quarter was first class.

Needs to work on his goalkicking like 8 others.


#6985

he didn’t look much shorter than hooker post game.


#6986

Probably seen one of the worst shots on goal ever thou…needs to sort that out


#6987

Are you thinking of the begley point from 35m out?


#6988

I think you have him mixed up with Begley. Lav kicked 2.1 and the one miss was after he baulked a player and tried to slot it from a very tight angle on the boundary and just hit the post.


#6989

He actually had a set shot from about 45m out and it went out on the full


#6990

Yep. Made the distance easily but about 30 meters left of target.
