And instantly threw his head back to make sure the ump would find him guilty. TIPPA terrorised them in that first quarter.
(Then disappeared till the last when, like several others, he threw away the chance to have four goals to his name.)
His performance against the Saints got the attention of this reviewer.
With his electrifying pace, there is a sense of anticipation whenever the ball is in his general vicinity. It is the kind of pace that makes opponents panic
I'm beginning to think I know who that reviewer is...
Thought his efforts in the first half kept us in it, was willing to do the hard things that many where not.
Even his quiet games are really valuable to the team. He is an ever-present menace and he attracts turnovers.
Back to form. Was great today
5 of the first 7 goals were because of his work.
Played a fantastic game. Also love that he doesn’t stand around and sulk when things like this don’t get called
You know what would be good? Kicking the ball to his advantage (to let him use his pace) rather than on his head.
Its ■■■■ poor seeing team mates do that… He is not going to take speckies all the time. He is at his best when he manages to outbody his opponent from behind and the burst back towards goals.
Seemed like our only player in fwd line in the first half and always had two way taller blokes right on him. So what do we do kick it in the air to him. I thought Tippa did a great job getting the ball to ground as many times as he did.
Oh it got called alright, if my lip reading is still accurate, Walla called him a fking R sole.
Oh you mean the free … gotcha.
the best 11 disposal game you’ll ever see
poise looks even more impressive when the rest of the team goes full spacko
Just watched the goals highlights video. Walla has a hand in just about every one of them. Impressive.
“McDonald-Tipungwuti has created more forward-half turnovers than any other player — three ahead of Demon Alex Neal-Bullen — but has incredibly generated 28 more points than any other player from this source. No wonder opposition players get nervous when he’s in the vicinity.”
Belongs in the JD thread I think
He literally sets the trap by trailing them by what appears to be a safe distance.
…like a giant clam!
He’s been everything we wanted from somebody to carry over from Andrew Lovett. And his tackling is almaot better and he’s possibly faster too. If he can get more into the midfield like Lovett was before he lost direction he will be invaluable and will go down as one of our all time best.
