#9 Dylan Shiel


#1638

Didn’t Harmes play on Shiel second half?


#1639

Yes he did, he was moved off Zaka and onto Shiel which freed up Zaka.


#1640

I thought he was on Zerrett in the first half.


#1641

Yep. Harmes tagged Zerrett in the first half.


#1642

Phew. Thought I was going mad for a minute.


#1643

Did you get to the game, mate? If yes, I imagine the kids loved it. I watched it at home with the little fella. Lost my voice. We were jumping around like madmen. Great win. :laughing:


#1644

If he slots one of those goals and gets his efficiency up a tad…

Phwoar.


#1645

I think he got landed on awkwardly in a tackle in the third hence he was a bit hampered but still looked dangerous and presented. That first half really showed his Rolls Royce Kerr/Judd style.


#1646

Truth with Shiel is that he isn’t a 35+ guy and he typically doesn’t play more than 80% game time.

He is an explosive player who is a mtres gained, impact, clearance player.

If he isn’t running a game out its probably because with mutch gone and Smith on the pine Shiel played too many minutes.


#1647

Nah watched from home. My kids are like a precision instrument. Miss their bed time by a few minutes and they go as crazy as @westozziebomber after a few tins and a 100 point flogging.

Just sat on the couch and punched the sky a few times. Hopefully we can string a few together now.


#1648

Gold. :rofl:


#1649

This guys work in tight traffic was absolutely elite. Totally different player than what we’ve had for a while. He plays on and burns his opponent every time he takes a mark. Efficiency wasn’t great but even his bad kicks gained a lot of territory.


#1650

lol brilliant!


#1651

That type of performance will cause Fagan headaches. Will they tag Shiel or Merrett from the get go?


#1652

Man, if this guy can fix up his kicking. Wow. Even if not, wow.


#1653

It’s nice to know he is still away from being at his best, and yet he has still been very important to us.


#1654

For a topline player some of those inside 50’s would be embarrassing for him!

Tippa in 20m of space kicks over his head and OOB

Not long after. Smith in space kicks over his head and it goes OOB! Got a bake off Smith also!

The one to Stringer that Baguley crumbed perfectly was very good though.


#1655

Harness moved to Shiel at the start of 2nd quarter


#1656

Gun


#1657

Yep. They moved him from Zerrett to Shiel.
