    He plays everywhere even when in the midfield, he has a free run and even gets close enough to marking his own 40 metre kicks , amazing how he was around the ball ready to scoop up his own kick when it was knocked to ground.

    What I liked about the Bont was his follow ups after kicking the ball. In some instances he had three consecutive touches after the clearance from the centre.

    After years of Brent Harvey and Daniel Wells tearing us a new one every time we played Norf, it's nice to return the favour with Bont. He toys with the Shinboners for fun, even in practice matches.

    I think it all comes from that time North legend Michael Firrito tried to rough him up and Bont rightly laughed his way to 3 Brownlow votes.

    Hall or Darcy (commentator) should give a pep talk about drawing a line in the sand about getting roughed up.

    Just seen the bump, no need for it and deserves two or three weeks at least.

    It was unnecessary and it will be a test for the adjudication process.

    Alex Keath very solid last night. Jordan Sweet showed some positive signs.

    Bont fantastic but would love to see him get his goalkicking right.

    I did notice only Roarke went in to bump Williams. I was a bit disappointed others didnt join him. While we are on Roarke does anyone else think he could be A great BF in the mould of Wood.
