I'm not going to go overboard on T Bell just yet. Has been good since his inclusion and is living up to the potential he showed in the past. His taps to advantage over the last two weeks have been good and our mids have lifted in response. His last quarter against Brisbane was woeful but you could rightly say he had plenty of mates.
Prior to this year I would have thought that Looney's edge over TBell was that he was more mobile. But in the end TBell has shown himself to be stronger AND more mobile. The icing on the cake is that TBell is a better mark and is dangerous close to goal.
If TBell can keep this up for the next 6 weeks we could see our midfield ranking improve dramatically.
