    But how many hit outs to advantage?

    Tim's only good if he wins the hit outs to advantage by at least 25% whilst falling within one standard deviation of total hit outs won.

    Then you need to subtract the things he does versus the things he doesn't do around the ground, and the add four.

    At that point you kind of get a view of what he can deliver.

    What about clearances.
    West Coast won the clearances and I believe Williams himself had 6 according to one point in the commentary

    I’ve never dissed Tim (except for all those times I did). Not in at least 12 months anyway.

    They say Burt Lancaster has one, but I don't believe them.

    Re: Trade Rumours 2024

    The talk that linked us to Liam Duggan might be for nothing as he is set to re-sign with the Eagles and shun free agency.

    West Coast co-captain Liam Duggan is set to turn his back on free agency with a new multi-year deal with the Eagles.

    From the rumour, I guess that leaves Noble & Florent on our list. Hard to see Florent leaving though.

    It has been speculated by journo's that swans may have some cap issues. They have 5 big name players OOC and there is thought that one could be shaken loose. Will Haywood is the one they think could be up for grabs, but Florent was also mentioned. They also have Logan McDonald, Gulden and Rowbottom to sign up and all will be on big $$.

    Rowbottom actually signed yesterday for four more years.

    Interesting that this has happened after Franklin has retired.

    But weren't the media reporting that they had a master plan all along to drive up Naught's salary to us so they could sign Marra on a long term MONSTER MEGA deal that the dogs couldn't couldn't hope to match, and how astute are Sydney's recruiters to do this.....??
    Now they're looking wobbly salary cap wise some 4 weeks later?
    Something doesn't add up, only one of those scenarios can be true at one time.
