Agree. He came back too light and looked like he had lost quite a bit of muscle


#9123

OK, Hurls does not play in the midfield, he does not play as a forward, so he must be a defender ?

Wrong, Hurls sits in a special category, along with ( at various times) BJ. Call them the general, call them the quarterback, call, them the playmaker

For them, defence is a part time occupation. These guys are like the nerve centre, because when they get it right, they orchestrate the game. The game flows though them and from them in transition.

Hurls had an outstanding year that earned him AA selection and yet, inability to beat tall forwards at times might suggest he is slightly more suited to attack than defence.

Do I want him to tighten up next year ?
Maybe , but mainly , I want the defenders to support him, channel the ball through him and trust him to command his position on the field.

However, from now, lets get Conor to take the majority of kickins !


#9124

Needs a big preseason, so he can get a bit stronger and win some more 1 on 1’s. Had an outstanding year apart from some of his defensive work.


#9125

He’s having two off season operations and will return to preseason late.


#9126

After another nice trip ?

#9132

Thanks WP. Love him! So glad he’s ours!!


#9133

Oh god, irrectisnippilosism.


#9134

I have noticed in a few of his off season photos that he got the beard started up again.

I would like to see a fully bearded Bear for the Home and Away season.


#9135

Don’t know if I want to hear that from someone calling himself Manboobs. Get your bro on, mate.


#9136

Hurley’s wrist is just able to hold a lid on.
