    It was on his non-preferred left too if I recall?
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I can't honestly recall. But if that's his non preferred, he can move into the midfield if he can kick both sides like that. It was a stunning kick. Audacious as it was perfect. I think it was Hurley who was in front of the leading Dickson, and I reckon everyone including Hurley thought it was going to him... But the weight and penetration to get the exact height and pace to get to a quick moving Dickson it was a thing of art.

    I shouldn't be as happy as I am over one kick, but in a season when we've showed a huge weakness in this area, something like this from a third gamer just stands out. I reckon the degree of difficulty would be harder than the wheelie bin from 40m.

    Wasn't the doubt about him his kicking?? His efficiency must be right up there. He doesn't panic at all.

    Well, time to make a midfielder out of him!

    Name the other players on our list who could make that on their non-preferred foot?

    Bonts, Bob, Bailey Dale maybe,

    Apparently got a knock on the knee late in the game, not sure how bad it is.

    He's the perfect modern day tall and perfect for our setup. Athletic and a good user. Has that extra height that Cordy & Adams don't

    Has already overachieved in his first year, but I would question whether he should remain in the side for the rest of the year - we've been playing him as the loose man and letting him run and jump at the ball, but even that today was beyond him at times as bigger, stronger, more experienced forwards pushed or held him off the ball
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Re: Welcome to the Bulldogs - Lewis Young

    Young has been fantastic - so much better than anyone could have reasonably expected. But I hope that he spends a heap of time working on his hand-passing in between seasons.

    Sometimes the pace of the game is too quick for him and he doesn't dispose of it quickly enough, which is fair enough (Cordy used to drive me a bit crazy with that), but vital in today's footy to turn hand-passing into a weapon and at the moment with him it's a bit of a liability. Young's obviously got a heap of things going for him, hopefully he's also one of those players who will work diligently to keep improving the less superb parts of his game.

    Good pickup , He got caught once holding the ball in the last quarter but it not help that his team mates did not come to him for options. He will learning , and get better. Ther is massive massive upside with him , an exciting prospect. We are crying out for a Jeremy McGovern role to take those intercept marks

    I'm still trying to work what his preferred is. He moves with the poise of a traditional left footer but mostly uses the right.

    That kick was right in front of where I sit...the guy beside me was having a hissy fit until he realised it was a perfect pass to Tory
    Young Lewis has certainly shown a lot of poise

    Fair effort for player who has only just started at the top level. Well done Lewis.
