Actually told my son "nah surely that's Hurley" after pone of his clunks down the Footscray end. And his mate was calling him turnover king before the game. I gleefully (pun intended) kept pointing out to this kid that Gleeson was going at 100% until a late clearing kick went to a saint. Don't think my son's mate will be a doubter now.
His intercept marking is up there, think he's the type to slowly improve over 10 years and be remembered as a very solid defender. Sure he'll have the odd poor game, he's not elite but very solid.
Understand the McPhee rep story but thread could be renamed Gleesome Gleeson, after a performance like that!
