yep - that sounds good.
He’s 24. Still young, but you know how time just flies and before you know it that’s it. No more Joey running around clunking massive grabs and booting big bags of goals and doing those finger twirls.
Not that we haven’t embraced and enjoyed him with passion so far. But he is so friggin damn exciting, that we also need to take our love for him up a notch as well, and enjoy our moment with Joey in the sun.
ok - I’m getting excited for tonight and Essendon’s future. Go Bombers.
Forward pressure is the buzzword, It shows that our highest tackling forward for 2017 was not even at the club last year. No coincidence, he was also the highest contested possession player on the list below
Forward Tackle Numbers 2017: Benchmark: Smith 4.94
Any backline will get torched if you allow rapid rebound out of the forward 50. So it’s not only a combination of defensive pressure but also the quality of your entries and ability to compete in the air. If we’re getting outmark in our F50 it’s goodnight.
Wouldn’t be surprised if Green/Begley get the defensive forward job on Laird as per Shawry on Twitter. With Smith missing I reckon 90% of their rebound will go through him.
