I just loves this guys speed and ability to surge into space while everyone around him is waiting for the revs to get into third. A couple of times it felt like he just came from nowhere to link up or win the loose ball. It’s exciting to watch.
Reckon he took a bit of his kicking too. Looking for 35 to 45m kicks rather than 55.
For all that pace and power though I ■■■■■■ myself when Fanta blew past him at a centre clearance and Shiel had to do a double take like a pilot seeing Superman outside his window. Haha.
Speaking about his surging past, on several occasions I felt we failed to honour that player when we should have and it caused turnovers. It drive me mental how often we burn Conor. He we breaks through the middle
and he routinely halls ■■■■ to get ahead of the play and gets ignored in favour of kicking to a fifty/fifty. Just ■■■■■■■ give it to him and let him bury it post high from 60.
Things like this, a little bit of connection, makes me think we still have another level.
I’m holding my breath though until I see us take on an opponent who is really setting the ground up well and denying us run and carry at half back.
