#17 James Stewart


Fark Port.

Edit: don’t know how this got posted in response to Pazza- should have been to Speedy’s post.

In summary, and for the avoidance of doubt, Fark Port!


GWS too Patton,Cameron,Lobbe

Hopefully the club is onto something.


No they went away from that, mainly as they lack enough quality pressure smalls around them and Lobb certainly doesn’t move like JD.

Lobb rucks now. And Patton is their fwd/ruck


I’m not convinced Lav will make it.


They did add Himmelberg to their forward line mix who’s around 194, so they’re still playing a pretty tall forward line.


Ah yes right you are on him. More mobile setup than previous though which appears to be the key

One big brute and then very athletic running talls around them.


Me too. I really hope we are wrong though.


Obviously they meant Guelfi.


It’s agility that counts, not just height.


I hope he makes it but I have no idea what type of player he is.

Injuries haven’t helped.


If the knock on him was he is too soft, then I think he has put that one to bed. He is a co competitive beast now.


His field kicking into 50 to hit up players has been sensational. Walla on the run to put us into Finals. Hooker 1sr Round this year. There was another telling one last season but can’t recall the reciever.

Emerging gun.

EDIT: Colyer




Yep, but it still shows that Chooka wouldn’t catch Buddy (sorry to bring that up Cale).


Gun. Stands up in that tackle to dish off to begley to kick our last goal. One of my favorite players now that he is using his strength.


That was my favourite Stewart moment of the game.


now that he has strength to use, was a beanpole that got pushed off it too easily last year.


Jimmy S and I are best mates. What I said about not wanting him was always in jest!! :wink:
PS: Good ‘ol Dev is trying hard to prove I’ve got him wrong. Hope he succeeds!!


ESSENDON forward James Stewart is closing in on a fresh two-year contract extension with the club.

Stewart, 24, is the leading goalkicker at the Bombers this season with seven majors from three games and is set to put pen to paper.

“We’re having fruitful conversations with the club, both parties are working in good faith and it’s not far away,” agent Peter Jess told AFL.com.au.

“It’s just a matter of tweaking a few things.”

Stewart has provided the Bombers flexibility in the front half since his arrival from Greater Western Sydney, playing 19 of a possible 26 games.

The Bombers parted with pick 77 in the 2016 NAB AFL Trade Period to secure the son of former Collingwood forward Craig Stewart.


Good to see. He’s been one of the few players to have enhanced his reputation over the first 3 weeks of the season. A new contract would be just rewards for his performances since he broke into the senior team.
