    Re: English locked in until 2022

    This is great great news. He will be a star.
    With a nod to another great blonde bulldog ruckman.
    I like to call him ‘Gentleman Tim’ English.
    Seems to suit his demeanour and obvious intelligence.

    You ripper Tiny.

    A combination of factors probably led to this.

    He's a country boy so the thought of living in Perth wasn't that enticing.

    He shares a house with another WA boy in Naughton.

    We've got the best supporters in the land.

    Re: English locked in until 2022

    That would be a little strange for me as they have Darcy who is the same age as English and Lobb as a more than capable 2nd ruck. I guess Darcy is a Vic, so maybe they're worried he wants to leave and English would've been a position/age replacement. Darcy is a very different type of ruckman to English so maybe they were looking for less strength and more mobility.

    Give Bont the captaincy and the coin he deserves and it will make it extremely hard to walk away.

    Darcy, at this stage, isn't very good.
    Lobb is an excellent 2nd ruck and a decent first ruck but he was nowhere near it at age 21. He has five years on English. I'm positive a 26 year old English beats 26 year old Lobb.

    That would make all supporters relieved.

    Thrilled with this news.

    We can really build the team around players like Bont, Naughton, Macrae, English & Bailey Smith in the future.

    Mike Shean has named Selwood as the player of the decade and English as the player of the next decade.

    Re: English locked in until 2022

    Had a good feeling when I heard Tim interviewed after the signing of Caleb and Josh 2 weeks ago. I am sure our on field performances the last 2 weeks have convinced Tim that the future is bright at the Kennel, and it is a good time to deliver some egg to the faces of the media filth pushing the "English to Perth" rumours.

    Interesting that Freo immediately bring Sandi out of his semi-retirement ask the big fella if he has another 10 years in him.

    Why, because most of the competition sees us a one stop shop whenever they fancy one of our mob? They must have felt particularly entitled because he happens to hail from their side of the country.

    GAG-very-F Freo. Look forward to English toying with your ruck division for the next ten years.
