#37 Dylan Alwyn Clarke


#1464

He secured his role for the next 5 games in my opinion.

What’s the point of making a kid works his but off and finally breakthrough just to be dropped again.

Even if he was terrible he deserved a couple of games but in this case he exceeded all expectations.


#1465

Shiels generally does the tagging, doesn’t he?


#1466

That’s my impression also.


#1467

Yeah
Just a meat and potatoes player IMO.


#1468

Woosha would say that about every player in the team, just to give the media nothin’. I reckon if someone asked if there’s a match up for Hooker he’d go “we will weigh up our options and consider who we feel best will perform a role for the team”.


#1469

they don’t do it often these days and he wasn’t the man last year when they did, preferring Daniel Howe. Haven’t seen much of them this year but if anyone went to Lachie Neale 2 weeks ago they did a shithouse job of it.


#1470

O MY


#1471

Shiels is more likely to tag Clarke than O’Meara


#1472

Backed up last weeks game with another good one.


#1473

Gave him a vote today. Got plenty of it whilst doing a number on his opponent. Love the way he goes about it


#1474

He is 3-0 In his AFL career.

Didn’t look out of place at all backing up after last weeks mammoth effort.


#1475

It’s like Omeara wasn’t even there.


#1476

He wasn’t on JOM all game, he kept swapping throughout the game. Whoever he went to went quiet for that period.


#1477

Best 22


#1478

Blanketed his multiple opponents and although nowhere near as offensively damaging as last week, he still picked up a cool 23 pozzies himself. Some of his handballs in close to players streaming out of the middle or contests were sublime. And missed. Unheralded, but very important to our structure now.


#1479

Dylan must play every game for the rest of the season. 2 scalps in 2 weeks. 23 disposals, 12 contested at 83% efficiency. He did a job on Omeara at the same time.


#1480

It’s still a little baffling he wasn’t given a go earlier


#1481

Like that he is playing within his limitations.
He is curbing his direct opponent which is great but when he gets the footy he is at peace with the fact that he is a very ordinary kick so he handballs to a teammate more often than not.

I reckon for his career to have longevity he does need to find a way to become a semi decent kick but for now this approach will do.


#1482

Goes alright


#1483

Kicked fine tonight…
