#43 Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti - WALLA MACCA TIPPA

It’s amazing to think back and whenever he lines up on those tight angles, I don’t get stressed out at all, he just gives you confidence he will kick the goal every time.

I haven’t felt that sure about an EFC player kicking goals from anywhere for a long time.


#6188

I think this is our biggest since Carlisle kicked 8 against the Bulldogs in 2014.


#6189

Has kicked 11 goals 1 behind from set shots this year.

On triple m they were saying he goes at 70% for his career which is better than Lockett


#6190

Walla’s leading patterns were superb today.


#6191

Thanks. That a good get.


#6192

Just out of interest, which Lions player/s were on Walla? Whoever it was got a fair-sized schooling…


#6193


Neuvo Classicos
#6194

Haha, I actually did that exact Banderas move when he kicked his 6th and 7th. Just bliss.


#6195

@Catherine_Lio

why do we not have collars as part of our regular kit?

regards, members.

GOD MODE TIPPA


#6197

Wonder how much better Mozzie will end up for having come up in Walla’s wake.

Really pleased for him - has worked incredibly hard.


#6198

It’s so refreshing seeing him take a mark inside 50. There is none of that ‘will he kick it’ nervousness.

I’d be keen to know his on the run accuracy too.


#6199

When Walla has space to work in he is dominant. They couldn’t get near him today.

Every time Walla or Ridley have it I feel very comfortable.


#6200

The 2nd last goal he kicked just shows how nervous he makes defenders.

Defender had a bit of space, fumbles the ball and then goes to ground. He was so worried about tippa closing him down he forgot to concentrate on the ball.

Loved the fact that when Tippa got the ball, he used his speed to get really close to goals before kicking. Some players panic and quickly kick. Tippa just backs himself in and then delivers

I reckon his set shots have improved quite a lot this year too


#6201

The most impressive thing is that if that was some football simulation or video game, Tippa basically aced every factor of the game all in the one game. A clinic on how to kick for goal, how to tackle, pressure, mark and kick the football

Goal kicking elite
Running elite
Pressure elite
Marking elite
Passing beyond elite

Someone once mentioned in a training report that Tippa does 6 impossible things before breakfast and this is the best way to describe him, yet there was no magic dances, pocket over the shoulder kicks, roved taps or candy selling today, this was pure skillful football executed at it’s best, such a display of all round football talent, intelligence and skill execution.

Could have easily had 8.


#6202

If he keeps playing like that the umpires will turn their heads away from the midfielders and see
Tippa smashing his way through to kicks goals. A few Brownlow votes coming up for Tippa this year if he can stay on course. Great job and he’s earned it the hard way.

Very satisfying I would think for Tippa and his families both in Melbourne and the Tiwi Islands.


#6203

JACKETS YOU DIABOLIC

Can everyone just take a second to think what watching Mozzie and Tippa win a bag of premierships over the next decade will do for the boys up in the islands up north. Great for footy, great for them, great for us.

Masterstroke.


#6204

Tippa may have a long role at the EFC as a den mother.


#6205

add Redman to that


#6206

He’s very dangerous when he is running to space in the forward line. Either to mark or to a loose ball.

Today his set shot kicking was just stupidly good. Sure he practices this stuff, but still it was very very good. The type of good that when opposition players have done it to us we scream they are getting goals out of their arses. Finally we get to enjoy it too.
