#37 Dylan Clarke - is only “pretty stoked” with 2019 re-signing


#642

The two have built cohesion and would be more confident if they came in together. Langford gets spoken down to and positioned by others when he plays seniors but if him and Clarke came in together they’re more likely to play their natural game. They would have a better output coming in together.
Who are we kidding though, no way Woosha brings both in let alone be at the the same stoppage.


#643

Both Clarke and Langford have earned their spot.

Langford in particular I give a big tick to as he’s not dropped his bundle in the two’s. That’s good character and should stand him in good stead for finally stepping up and putting in performances that demand he stays in the seniors. He doesn’t have to do a Ronke but I want him to hit in hard and present all day long.


#644

Totally agree.

They need responsibility of owning the midfield and being accountable.

Langers when he has come in doesn’t have confidence because the role he plays is different to the one he plays at VFL level and more suited to his style.

Clarke is the beast/enforcer and Langford is the class.

Together they compliment each other and they need opportunities to adapt at the next level.


#645

BRING
HIM

( can someone finish that off for me)


#646

One very good sign is that Clarke seems to play better in more heavily contested games. He appeared to be down last week against North, when the going was easier, but in both the Williamstown game ( wet as) and yesterday, he arguably performed better, while others “star” against weak opposition. ( which is fair enough)

Edit. Did I say he was down last week ? Still had 30 disposals. and 6 more than that yesterday.


#647

Dinky loopy kicks? anyone seen our captains kicks this year?


#648

I wasn’t having a go at him…aiming to say at worst his kicks were creating 50/50 contests
and I think all his other attributes still make him a worthy inclusion.


#649

Official stats

38 disposals (27 in the first half)
7 marks
6 tackles


#650

Damn it 6 tackles… well below his average of 9 so far😀


#651

Isn’t there some sort of clause in our constitution that if you get 40 touches in the 2s and get overlooked for senior selection you are legally allowed to assassinate all the selectors?


#652

11 in the 2nd half?

delist not making kpis.


#653

Jerrett had 35. I presume they actually played him on the wing, you know, his best position.

Not calling for his recall btw, though he’ll probably get it and he’ll probably disappear in a forward pocket again.


#654

Jerrett was high half forward


#655

Get this 19 year old wrecking ball into the side asap!


#656

kicking, although way better, is still a work in progress, but I’d give him a shot anyway. Everything else appears to be ready, and we crying out for a player of his type.


#657

Exactly
I’d bring both Clarke & Langford in.


#658

while a work in progress, haven’t see a turnaround like this since jobe.


#659

Yep. Just goes to show; you can improve someones kicking.


#660

He has to be picked.


#661

Yep, now Neeld is gone surely this guy gets a game.
