I reckon jack is a good depth player.

obviously so do the coaches. The sub vest writes it in flashing neon.

I expect him to improve, but at this stage I feel like he'll need some luck (bad?)

to get a premiership medal.

Like snake said, sub is a tough gig in that you have to hit the ground running,

but everyone else is walking.
He did what many other midfielders couldn't do, stick a tackle on Walsh it was no coincidence that Walsh had very little impact on the game after Ross came on the field.

Very harsh Ezy except for the shanked kick he had a good impact on the game.

Yep, our tackling was really poor last night so that JR was a standout when subbed on. Although Baker made a great effort on Cripps.

But he ended up looking like a wallaby stuck on the roo bars of a semi and dragged for 15m.

I liked a tackle that Short layed on, where he rolled the Carlton player over the boundary line and had his arms and legs wrapped around in him in the Koala style that Reece Conca used.

It highlights the flaw with the new rule. A team that gets a fresh player on late from an injury gets a huge boost. How does that make it fair?
Yep. Before you were unlucky if you had a player injured or concussed, now you are lucky. Especially with the longer quarters and lower rotations. Again the afl haven't thought this through.

Disagree. Ross is a gun in the making and he'd get a game at pretty much any other club. Timing is everything and unfortunately he's hit a Tiger team that could be the best ever.

Should be in the starting 22 next week.

Looked very clean and straight with his disposals last night bar the first one. I like him and hope he becomes a starting 22 player before a few players getting a game on their name.

If he is a gun in the making he'll get a game

Yes, I posted in favour of this new sub rule for concussion only. But AFL introduced it on-the-run and last minute, for any injury type.

So clubs will be looking to bend the rules to get their fresh player on once the opposition get to activate theirs. Again putting medicos in an invidious position.

I can see a lot of - "We were fairly sure X had pinged a hammy, but after scans next day, it turns out to be just awareness ..."
By round 3 it will just be a sub. Use however you like.

I enjoyed his attack on the ball and the man. He is ferocious at the contest and I thought our intensity In the midfield really improved when he came on.
Hopefully his indurance has developed to a point that he can play as a transition mid, because then he becomes a very exciting prospect.

Its fair because both teams get it.
And it will be used every match.
Meh rule, totally bogus implementation

They should have left it as a concussion sub only with mandatory 12 days for the player subbed out, but I suspect it will be 23rd man sub for any purpose before long.

On Ross my view is that he is easily good enough to play AFL. He just had players in front of him who are very difficult to replace in the team.

i think his performance will give the match committee a greater inclination to manage Cotchin or Prestia if they are sore - i hope so anyway

Neither team activated their sub last night - second game with new sub provision, so rules look like they could be serious.

I wonder if one had though, then the other feels disadvantaged so ....
