Houli has received coaches votes in 2 out the last 5 games.

Exactly. He runs hard, handball option, kicks long or to a target. His defence and disposal getting better every week. 21 disposals last week.

People are writing him off way too soon.

I see the Lions have dropped the barometer. How the hell are they going to wi without their barometer??

AFL.com ran a big expose on 'Beast Mode', barometer, heart and soul, beautiful person, Matheson.

(he received 6 free kicks for 'to high' on debut FFS)

then the Lions dropped him 2 hours later.

:rotfl1

But no doubt he could be the most important orange cutter in the history of a side making a semi-final push

either that, or the least talented, greatest head ducker the game has known, beating Greg-Brian Myers into 2nd by quite a margin.

Pretty good at head butting players also....doesn't get suspended because commentators love the emotion!

I think he reminds the commentators of this fella running amok on their tvs.

Houli’s form has dropped off markedly. He had a very good game against the Bulldogs but I think he has dropped off since.
He is not challenging opponents with the ball and his disposal has gone off. Kicking and by hand also loopy.

He has been a magnificent Tiger and made an enormous contribution to 3 flags.
Hope he recaptures his best soon!

Hope so too Momentai.. Houli had equal 4th most disposals. 11 kicks, 10 hb, 10 marks, 2 tackles. 1 clanger.

Sure, stats are just stats, but he's looking better every week to me.

He's not the only one, although I haven't looked at the stats, Shorts disposal efficiency can't be anywhere it used to.

Good to see the boys have a run on Optus Stadium!

Sydney --> Perth
Tigers travel to Perth to play Essendon in the Dreamtime match.
