That play down the wing where he held up play, assessed options and waited for Joe to run into position for the chip kick with seconds remaining in the quarter.Brilliant unselfish stuff.No wonder our young guns respect him so much, and if they can continue to learn from him he will not only have been a great player and captain, but a great teacher of our next premiership side.
Mutch better, kicking still needs to improve.
The long releasing handpass was back
Biggest concern of the first 6 games he played.
Yep. That dinky kick in the backline straight to Geelong was terrible. It was the wrong time to pin point that type of pass.
Everything else was perfect. In particular his defensive pressure.
As with Zaka, hopefully he can back it up over the next few weeks.
Watching the replay now, bar that shocker at the end of the first half his kicking has been very very good. Getting those 45 degree kicks and deadly long handballs back.
Not just that, his ability to distribute the ball from the bottom of the pack is a weapon. I'm not just talking about a dinky little throw, I'm talking about getting it to an outside runner.
Guys still got it.
Really really good game from Jobe today.
I love that he is now a side show in a very talented list. He is playing like he has the weight of the world off his shoulders, he doesn't need to rally the troops anymore, we don't need to always look for him when we need a lift.
He was superb today.
One of our best today. Clearance work back to his best.
His pressure was great and laid some big tackles.
30 possessions. Heaps of contested footy won
Well done Jobey!
Yep, his best game for the year in my view.
It will be very very interesting to see if he can back it up vs Richmond. Mind you I think the coaching staff has been changing the inside / outside loads of our clearance mids. Might be Jobes turn for less of a role in the centre next week.
Best game for the year? I think so..
Getting there.His story's not over yet.
I hope the crowd gets behind his first goal for the year.The team, too.
Finally the vegan diet is kicking in!
30 possessions + 5 tackles. Only 2 clangers. And he's upped his game time to 79% too. He's building. And now with him and Zaka finally performing our midfield runs a ton deeper.
as if you'd ever doubt him
Hmm, seems legit, user name checks out!
Hi Jobe Hi
Topped our clearances and contested today with no fuss. He worked very hard for the team today.
Hey you people who wanted him dropped for Anzac Day, said he was done, basically retired him etc.
From the bottom of my heart, and with the greatest of sincerity, go ■■■■ yourself.
