Orazio has them all covered barr Smith for swagger! But i agree, add a confident McNernan and JD to that list and our forward line swaggers so much it’s no surprise they can’t kick straight!


#4951

Still needs a bit more size too. But will come with each preseason.


#4952

Put it another way… He’s a long way off our good kicks like Zerrett, Langford, Walla, McKenna etc…


#4953

legit his kicking has been good the whole season, bar a couple of blunders here and there.

he will never have bullet kicks like zach, so you can stop with that fantasy, but he has great vision and capable enough footskills to capitalise on it, and i think that showed through on a couple of occasions on the weekend.

kicking is so down on the list of things he must improve on. consistency within games and maintaining the rage that he brings to the first half of his games is what he should be working on…


#4954

He has pulled off some brilliant kicks, love his across the body kicks. Haven’t noticed anything to suggest he’s changing anything up with his kicking either.
Fitness, strength and defensive decisioning should be his goals in the short term.


#4955

You sure are


#4956

I never count the current season when talking about how long they have been playing. Strange but that’s just what I do. So when someone says they have been critical of him for a couple of years I take that to be the 2 years that have been complete, this year isn’t complete yet.


#4957

Where’s Donnington when you need him?


#4958

He’s a jack of all trades, master of one.

He just needs to go from being average at everything else, to being slightly above average and he’s a jet.


#4959

wtf


#4960

Master of one or none?


#4961

One. Clearance work is elite.


#4962

Jack-of-all-trades, master of one…

Makes you a damn useful tradesman.


#4963

A couple of his handballs in congested space were from another world - He has 360% vision.


#4964


#4965

Agree. IMO his overhead marking is more of a problem than his kicking.


#4966

Not worried about the minutiae of it Ice Temple, I saw your post as more of an opportunity to ( try to) make a suggestive joke.


#4967

I thought that was blindingly obvious.

IT must have had the serious goggles on. He usually spots the funnies.


#4968

I don’t think his kicking, or his size, or his fitness are issues, but I don’t think they’re above average. When he gets to just a bit nicer kick, and just a bit bigger, and just a bit fitter, he’s going to be very, very good.

He knows where he needs to be and what he needs to do, which is most of the battle.


#4969

Must have, I completely missed it! Doh
