He did a pre-match pre-match stint where he went through routine of taking a set shot from about 40 metres out. Moving from in front to about 13, 30 45 degrees and then on the boundary. He was ok. Except for the boundary shot he as kicking with a standard kicking style, not across the body. And while I can’t speak for his mind set he seemed to be going through the motions somewhat. He kicked most, but not all. But the thing I thought was that when he did miss a shot he didn’t go back and try again, he just went on to the next angle. I’d prefer he goes back, and does it again until he nails it. Actually wouldn’t hurt to do 2-3 shots at each angle. Or do the whole thing again.
When he took that kick around the body it was back to 2016. He had it worked out last year and then that crops up. Why do that on his preferred side??!! Pleasing that he went for the standard approach and nailed it later in the game. Funny bloke is Joey, and he is going to thrill us through his career. Thrill us like a rollercoaster, exhilarating but also with those heart in your mouth and screaming moments.
