Thanks cuz.

First post guys.

Was at Sandy yesterday (sideways rain and hail f you don’t mind!) and have to agree that Mozzie was the good news story of the day-it looked like he was handling a different ball. Thought Jok was very good also-clean hands, good decision making and some big tackles. Given he is 6’4, I think we could do worse than give him a go at some stage.


#283

JOK impressed me also.

Only the second time I have seen him but his footy smarts are way better than I thought they would be. His hand balling as you say was very good.

Once given space to run he is very quick.


#284

We need a running machine in the wing for the seniors. Bring him in…


#285

Did he make any of his usual 1-2 major blunders?

He is a seriously good prospect, I’d be happy to give him a solid patch in the seniors this year.


#286

I wasn’t watching him the whole time but I was impressed with how vocal he was. He was directing traffic and looked like he was making a huge effort to set up the structures which ultimately set up the victory.

I didn’t see him go by foot a whole lot but his handballing was very impressive.

Well worth a rookie spot.


#287

Surely he us worth a go with his versitility… he can literally play every position on the groubd… inckuding ruck.


#288

I noticed this also. Good vision, quick thinking, several long flat handpasses to players out wide.

I didn’t see any blunders at all tbh.


#289

For Mo22ie’s first goal start at the 41:25 throw-in. I’ve watched it a few times and I still can’t work out what the hell he’s doing, apart from getting closer and closer to goal.

Draper2Houlahan, start at 1:55:40


#290

I can’t actually remember the last time in the seniors we had a big man take a grab in the centre, then kick it down for a pack mark in our forwardline :frowning:

Bring them in!


#291

I like the fact that Draper took the mark then rushed back to take his kick


#292

Mozzie looks just like that, you can see him zip in between two players like they’re stationary and kick the goal before they’d moved.


#293

It’s a practice match and they show more team spirit than the AFL side in a big game.


#294

Just watched that Mozzie goal.
I’d started to forget why I watch footy - thanks for the reminder.

Come along to a VFL game, it can remind you of the things you love about footy.
