    Re: The Jones Boy - I will declare it now - he is going to be a star

    He played really well but it's partly a function of having a more complete set of talls in the forward line. We managed to get a mismatch with him on Tom Langdon at one stage with Crameri & Grant also dangerous. He has been unfairly lamented when being forced to play as the number one forward with little to no support, today showed what he can do in a better setup.

    His kicking has come a long way and he had 4.2 today but he really needed to slot his 5th, that miss killed our momentum when it could have iced the game
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    I think we forget how young he is. He is still eligible for "pup" votes.
    More of an In Bruges guy?

    This is what I have been waiting for. All we need now is Stringer up forward also then watch us go.

    Faith restored.

    I really had grave doubts but he was brilliant today. His defensive pressure was the best I've ever seen from any key forward - those tackles on Young were superb, a real highlight, and his goal kicking has significantly improved. Deserved 5 today - wish he nailed the last one.

    He's not a number one target, but has the potential to be a very good second/third option.

    I was about to post this on another thread: It's not just the KPP in and of itself, a Patton gets the best defender, then either Stew or Jones gets second or third which Stew excelled at at Essendon and the Jones today would kill them, then Grant gets a utility who he can out run, out mark and out skill. And our small H's can have another option of goal scoring (roving). So it's more than a we need a big body for the sake of it.

    Should we be playing either Campbell, Cordy or Redpath at full forward to take that main defender?

    It's not a bad idea, but if opposition teams think Ayce or Campbell aren't up to it it might not work nearly as well as they can play a smaller yet competent defender on them, which may or may not work. There's only one way to find out. But a bona fide KPP is a different kettle of fush.

    The tackle on the Brazilian was a close shave.

    Big test for Liam is now putting some consistent form together.
    Not always in the goal column, but the effort and tackling aspect.

    I didn't know you were a NZer BT.
    They say Burt Lancaster has one, but I don't believe them.

    So glad I didn't post in this thread way back.
