#27 Mason Redman


#1364

Looks like Redman might be a starter in the next VFL practice match this Saturday at Craigieburn


#1365

Do we think that Redman, Ridley and Gleeson are all vying for the one spot?

Obviously 2 are unavailable for round 1 so Ridley would get the nod but I would have those 2 ahead of Gleeson if this was the case. I don’t think Gleeson can defend too well himself which becomes more important with the 6-6-6. He can intercept well as a loose man or sit off his opponent but Francis can play this role far more effectively.

Redman looks like he can defend and rebound, same with Ridley


#1366

It may be a case of ‘last seen, best remembered’.


#1367

I think there is two defensive positions for the types of players they are and play 7 defenders. If by chance midfield gets thin I can see all 3 playing with one on the wing. Can also see a glimmer that all 3 can play in defence and McKenna moving to the middle.


#1368

Gleeson certainly can intercept and rebound but has tended to overestimate his own ability to break tackles and take on opponents. But that was Gleeson 2017. I am betting he is now a lot stronger in the upper body. Neither Redman nor Marty are ready yet so its academic. With Dea out, our medium defender depth is suboptimal.


#1369

Can’t wait til this guy is ready.

Aggression, hard tackling and intensity.


#1370

He looked really good yesterday.

Misplaced a couple of kicks but thats going to happen when you haven’t played for a while.

Plays like he cares so hopefully comes back in over the next few weeks.


#1371

Been on our list for 3 years and don’t even know what he looks like


#1372

Maybe you should start watching games.


#1373

Looks like Goddard all the way down to his finger pointing.


#1374

Comes in for Guelfi, better defender, better rebounder.


#1375

How many games has he played in 3 years?


#1376

He’s been injured a lot mate.

Had to get any consistency when you can’t get any continuity.

Doesn’t help that we have a coach that thinks young players need to play VFL for their first 5 years on the list.

He has plenty of talent.


#1377

Yea that’s the point i was trying to make, should be in the team and getting more games


#1378

You have wanted everyone else delisted so I apologise for not picking up on your point.


#1379

Fit or not bring him in. Got balls

Bring back Ridley for Baguley and Clarke for Myers

And that’s just a start


#1380

Ridley (a half back) to replace Bags (a forward pocket)?


#1381

Spare me please. Baguley is not a forward


#1382

Neither is Ridley.

I think you meant Mozzie for Baguley.


#1383

That I’d like
