Grundy beat them by a lot for hitouts, but the strategy worked insofar as around the ground is concerned. A single ruck like TBell might have difficulty with that strategy due to age and relative mobility.
When we played Collingwood 2nd time, Grundy 34 HO 24D, 16CP TBell 28HO, 15D 7CP and on Anzac Day Grundy 32 HO, 22D 14CP, TBell 20 HO, 13D 4 CP.
In the GF with WC Vardy and Lycett stats combined, Grundy 49HO to 29, Disposals 10 to 23 CP 10 to 16,
A 2 ruck strategy against Grundy might help us in 2019, because I can’t see TBell improvin on those figures, he has to CONTEST the ball more at stoppages. I suspect his role is to get out of the way of our mids, whereas Grundy is given the role to fully go for the ball after the hitout is complete.
