#17 James Stewart


#2347

He was inured in the 3rd and spent a fair bit on the pine, came back on in the 4th but went off again.


#2348

James Stewart winning the ANZAC day medal will be my dream this week.


#2349

Just seen the big fella at a cafe in Essendon. He is a monster of a guy, but most importantly no signs of a limp or any sort of bandage/brace on that ankle.


#2350

LOL… who changed the thread title :laughing:


#2351

I bet he’s a picollo kind of guy.


#2352

The first 4 rounds have seen him look much stronger overhead, the only real weakness in his game last year. With his genuine pace he is hard to match up. Certainly the forward line as it lined up against Port looked quicker and more agile with JoeD, Stewart and Stringer as the key forwards.

With JoeD looking a bit down on form he will probably cop a harder opponent that he would normally get against the Pies.

:sunglasses:


#2354

Bravo good sir.


#2355

He is deceptively mobile and agile for a big bloke. I think he is really coming into his own since moving to Essendon and is comfortable in his skin. And; there is still room for improvement, its scary to think just how good this bloke can get.


#2356

After the complete balls up with the checkside from not far from directly in front, JoeD did conventional drop punts for his two goals. Seemed to really lift his confidence. Having a confident JoeD floating around will also help Stewart.


#2357

Not sure why people are posting all this bullshit “much better than last year” “improved on his flawed overhead marking”

He was doing all this to an elite level last year


#2358

I’m surprised that you don’t think he has improved, and that you consider his performance last year elite.

Different opinions I guess.


#2359

Great game by Stewart. We now have a full forward !

With JoeD at CHF and Stringer as 3rd tall, our forward line is motoring.


#2360

Short memory, must have a shooort memory.


#2361

Magic ingredient, JD and JS on an even footing and throwing Hooker and Stringer back to their AA positions, win, win, win, win!

Happy Days


#2362

At the risk of getting totally carried away, his strength in the contest combined with fast leading, good hands and fairly reliable kicking is reminding me a little of another number 17 with a stuttering run up


#2363

Keiran Sporn? :smile:


#2364

How did you guess?


#2365

2 year contract extension imminent I’m told.


#2366

Smart move to sign him up before he wins the ANZAC day medal.
