The number one ruck spot is his for the taking

Will be interesting to see if he takes it or happy to be number 2

His problem is if he chooses the later than CCJ May pass him bye very quickly
I can't understand the hype about CCJ he is not as good in the ruck as Soldo and his kicking for goal is cringeworthy.

CCJ is going to be a good ruckman but still has a bit to go.

CCJ will be a gun, sooner than later.

Gee, that must have set him back in development terms a couple of years easy.
Thought this was pretty common knowledge. Played basketball, wasn't really interested in AFL and only ever played a bit of kick to kick with mates

Best ruck potential youngster I've seen at the club for a while. Is only 20. His only game at AFL level he had 13 disposals, 7 contested from just 63% game time. Yeah they weren't great disposals overall but he has immense talent.

Very smart and quick minded in congestion.
Has a football I.Q.
Very rare for a ruckman

I don't think enough is made is of the moustache.

Clearly it was the catalyst for his form jump. Sent shivers down the spine of the opposition ruckman. Rovers wouldn't go near the ball.

Word got out that The General was back!

Loved how Ivan took himself off against Geelong with the blood rule. According to the commentators it’s was a smart move to slow the game down.
Wish dumb Francis Bourke had thought of that when he continued playing with a broken leg :rolleyes:

There was a lot to like about CCj's debut on the big stage against the Druggies

Yep. Still got massive amounts to learn about playing the game, but his reaction and second efforts around the contest are very good.

I wonder if he might be a bit exposed in the early games when the matches are faster, then come into his own from June onwards and the moustache is more intimidating

I only see upside from here for Soldo by the end of year his work rate improvement was very good taking marks, kicking goals,chopping in defence.

He seems to be a quick learner and is starting to read the game reasonably well.

What can you say, he is performing well now and still has room to improve. Great stuff.
