#8 Marty Reppin' Gleeson - is “absolutely stoked” to re-sign through to 2020


#2724

Sounds like 3 weeks out from m the end of the season they will set him for a film pre season. Gone for 2018


#2725

Muscle wastage after 2 months in a moon boot will be massive. He’s going to have a twig leg. That’s not something you can just start playing immediately, needs to build the strength and conditioning back in his legs. Will take time to get to top condition.


#2726

What a cruel blow that injury is. He was in good form and had a very good 2017 imo.
This season is just about a write-off. He will take a while to get strength and confidence back.
A good ‘recruit’ for 2019.


#2727

I take it you are still talking about Hurley as a mid.
He’s about as much chance as I am.


#2728

There literally is no one here that is a greater fan of Francis than I.
But to compare him, as talented as he is, to Gleeson at intercept marking - when Gleeson has shown at AFL level just what a great intercept mark he is - and Francis has basically not even started - is ridiculous.


#2729

I would like to challenge this statement as I believe it to be erroneous.


#2730


#2731

surely he can do some upper body work?


#2732

Worsfold loves him


#2733

As did Hird and Bomber. Kid is a ■■■■■■ good footballer.


#2734

I don’t reckon anyone doubts he has talent


#2735

We do have a lot of talent in the backline.

One of those cases where someone very talented is going to be pushed out.


#2736

One of my faves. Underrated as.


#2737

I don’t have a problem with your opinion. Its simply different to mine.


#2738

If anyone can play AFL with twig legs is the Gleek


#2739

His legs got a perfect 10 from Bruce MacAvaney, who didn’t even notice his intercept marking !

He’ll always be skinny, I think and have a baby face but his football really shot up a level last season and he was very reliable for us.
Hope he can get back to that standard when he returns - whenever that will be. Nasty injury.


#2741

They said 12-14 weeks for a return, must be getting close to training properly again?


#2742

Can’t believe he’s still in a moon boot! At least a month behind schedule.


#2743

I look fwd to the ensuing 3 weeks of how shitt our Club, Physio’s and Doctors are, … eventually resulting in defamation threats and other associated crap. :roll_eyes:
