#29 Patrick Ambrose

I think it’s fantastic that Paddy can be labelled as ‘impressive’ and have ‘11 disposals’ all in the same report. I hope to see this guy back soon as we have certainly missed him.


#2742

Must come in to play on Tex, Hartley is no where near as strong or has the tank to go with Tex.
I’d bring Patty in this week and let him play on Casboult.


#2743

Agree, bring him in this week even if he is slightly underdone. Needs a week in the ones before he takes on Tex.


#2744

Ah yes. Let’s get him nice and Essingtoned before he takes on Tex. I’d be more inclined to bring him in against Adelaide.fresh, breathing fire, and ready to nullify.


#2745

Yep, give him a run before the crows as he’ll certainly be needed


#2746

Should have been in last week.ust come in this week.


#2747

Had a nightmare today. I thought he was a poor selection given the opposition. Will have better match ups next week


#2748

Who was he on?


#2749

Mustn’t have been near his man then; unlike Hartley I don’t recall him repeatedly being beaten one-on-one.


#2750

Correct - manned up on Curnow who didn’t mark until Ambrose was on the bench in Q1 and Hurley simply spectated Curnow take a big pack mark.

Whoever Ambrose was on didn’t really touch the ball which is what normally happens.

He will be better for the run.

Thank God he is back because Hurley again was diabolical in the air in 1:1 contest spectating firstly Curnow and then Silvagni in Q1 take overhead marks from high, slow balls.


#2751

Thought he was solid.

Especially for a first game back.


#2752

Yeah I thought he was good


#2753

The guy just doesnt get beaten one on one


#2754

Hes instructions are very clear and he does the job well but hes not very damaging, theres only room in the side for one of hartley and ambrose.
Neither will be in essendons next premiership team and they aint allow.


#2755

Was a good first up match after such a long lay off.

Will be better for it.

And, i’d rather he blow out the cobwebs against Carlton’s forward line than Adelaides…


#2756

Hardly had a nightmare. WTF??

Good to get that one under the belt and blow the cobwebs out.

Hopefully gets pretty close to full Ambrose next week.


#2757

He keeps Tex quiet next week, we kick straight and we win.


#2758

Great to see you back early, Paddy ! Hope you give Tex a real bath next week. Drown the fugger.


#2759

What a misinformed post - He played on Curnow who for a second year player has been flying for the last 4 weeks - Curnow had no influence on the game - It’s no secret that Curnow featured in few marking contests.


#2760

I thought Curnow was quite dominant with few opportunities. I was at the game and watched it after as well.
