In the JLT game against Geelong, Harry Taylor beat Brown twice on the lead and kicked a couple of goals. Clearly Brown is not much better than Harts in that respect, if at all.
In the VFL game against Footscray, the reigning VFL premiers, Brown had 26 disposals and 12 marks playing as a key defender . Its hard to gauge but about 8 of those marks appeared to be intercept marks, mostly contested as well, while the rest were switches.
Surely that counts for something.
Maybe Woosha wants to try a change of emphasis in the back 6, away from lockdown, to more marking power.
