    Pretty confident JJ only played back to cover Duryea. McNeil basically plays JJs position so it was the obvious switch to make.
  14. Re: Always Right Match Committee Round 15 v Hawthorn at Marvel on Friday Night

    Yep JJ spent the whole game back once Duryea was done.

    Thought McComb was pretty solid in the second half.

    Really don't want to play Crozier.

    Never really rated Francis and would think we already have our not that tall intercept defender who never really went anywhere at their previous club on the list in O'Brien.
  40. Re: Always Right Match Committee Round 12 v Geelong at Marvel on Friday Night

    Yes.

    2017 averaged about 5 hitouts a game topping out at 8, and the next years he spent at Hawthorn would record at least 1 in maybe half his games.
