I see Zerretts leadership like Goddard. He has high expectations of his peers and himself, would probably add McGrath into that category. After Heppell I would hope McGrath is ready for the captaincy. Also think Zerrett can be shut down to a degree, he is getting a lot of ball in defensive 50, as our go to kicker, and good opposition have tried to nullify this and pressure his disposal.
We have a few players that will put the team on their back and carry them dont worry
- Daniher has already carried us across the line a couple of times this year
- hurley down back, I wish we could have hooker down there too!
- Watson - but he is in his last years.
You are probably right that we lack someone who can change a game like Dangerfield in the midfield. - I would probably mark Colyer as our midfield game changer with his dashes through there, but he hasnt been very consistent and has had poor disposal.
Maybe Fantasia can be a elite mid, he definately has the pace, arrogance, hope we can develop him more in the midfield rotations.
Otherwise there is McGrath who has potential there, and is a bit of a ace card of ours we try in the last quarter where he goes into the midfield and racks it up.
And Heppells captains goal from outside 50 against the Hawks was a pretty special captains goal.
I think he will get back to his best of 2015, it will probably be later in the year or next year though.
