#45 Conor McKenna - 3 Weeks to Chew it Over


#3184

Definitely doesn’t have a burning desire for the game of AFL. Does sound like he has a burning desire to get the most out of himself though.

That’s good enough for me.


#3185

He’s 21. Fark he is going to be something.

We keep saying Saad/McKenna.

But i think McKenna could play wing at some stage.


#3186

Lol, hes talking like hes a list plodder! Hes going to be at 100 games before we even realise. The guy is an absolute lock in our 22


#3187

… and that’s all we really needed to know.


#3188

Thanks for posting the articles, @SCarey.

Conor is an international star!

Learning where to run and reading the ball flight are the two biggest learning curves for McK. Footballs fly through the air a lot differently to gaelic / soccer balls. Marking - maintaining body contact/position on your opponent and still being in the right spot to take the grab - has probably been the hardest thing for McKenna’s to get his head around.

Get him on the wing where there’s less contested marking/body positioning in packs req and he will run riot. Colyer, based on his '17 form, might be the one to make room if he doesn’t improve in 18

I will be watching the International rules game, mainly to see Conor run out for the Irish and play against the cream of our AFL players.


#3191

By order of the peaky fooking blinders…


#3192

l don’t mind the idea of him moving to the wing at all, l like it a lot. The problem is who plays the HBF role?


#3193

#3194

Ankle injury. Won’t play in the international rules series and may miss the start of the pre season


#3195

Ugh, FFS


#3196

#3197

He’s been living it up while back home, going by his Instagram.


#3198

I’d be surprised if it wasn’t a drunken accident :slight_smile:

Constantly looks like he’s on the pis s.

Once an Irish, always an Irish.


#3199

Just shoot me now.


#3200

Same reason State of Origin is a crock of ■■■■. Players get injured in a pointless exhibition match. No thanks.


#3201

Can we petition the club to ban Zerrett and Goddard from the series?


#3202

Ok sure. we can do it. ill tell Zach, you can tell BJ.


#3203

Umm. Could we swap?
