Any of the WA posters have any thoughts on Tim Kelly?
Tim Kelly’s Krakouer-like season with South Fremantle
…There is the same slightly stooped posture, the low, spearing right-foot drop punts, but most of all, the remarkable ability to gather the ball cleanly while moving at top speed through heavy traffic. Busy rather than prolific ball-winners, the premium value of their disposals was underlined by the cleanliness of their ball-handling, the precision of their use and their forensic decision-making.
And now that Kelly, 22, has added goal kicking to his list of attributes as the most creative stoppage player at the Bulldogs, he is starting to mirror Krakouer’s impact as a genuine match winner. Articulate and eager to complete his electrical apprenticeship this year, Kelly’s breakout season is a critical factor behind the Bulldogs being premiership favourites.
Averaging about 25 disposals a game, 1 goal, 3 tackles, 4 marks.
