Not sure there is a footballer that takes more pride in their own performance than Nank. He doesn't allow himself to be below par 2 games in a row. His smashing of St Kilda was entirely predictable.

This bloke is all heart and soul. But we will send him to an early retirement if we don’t give him a chop out soon.

Yep Soldo is a massive loss for us this year. I reckon a bigger loss than anyone would have imagined.

Agree. But we have a player in the VFL and refuse to play him. Even early days last year we tried the one ruck system and we looked at our worst. Once we played a two ruck combo we were much more damaging.

His physical work tonight was immense. Took every, and I mean every, opportunity to hammer Gawn into the ground. Gawn was barely walking by the end and not very happy about it. That said, Gawn has become a genuine champion and still carried them to a comfortable win. Thank *smile* it’s only round 6.

Nank played one of the great ruck games last night.

he went out with a plan to punch Gawn in the ear and back of his head, and land on him and walk on him.

and he executed.

Nank was sensational. Loves playing against the best ruckman.

What concerns me is when Nank has a rest.

We are a structure and role kind of team and every time nank is off it's all out of kilter. Marlion moves, baker moves, Grimes moves, Balta moves......in the forward line Lynch rucks, and all the forwards adapt.

Me miss Soldo so bad, but it's time to end the CCJ farce

Yep, need to rest him using a proper ruckman. Gotta be said that I do love seeing Marlion in there occasionally, I’m sure it panics the real ruckmen.

Thought Nanks was one of our best but when you look at the raw stats he was well outpointed. Gawn had 16 hitouts to advantage from 30 hitouts to Nanks 2 from 15. 22 disposals with 82% efficiency to 22 at 41%. 6 marks to 2. Nanks had 7 clearances to 2 but to me that highlighted the issue, he had more clearances than any of our midfielders.

Yeah because we won the gf without him , it probably tends to get overlooked how effective the soldo/ nank combination was looking before he went down .

Following up with second efforts is Nank’s one wood. Good luck standing in his way when he is following up on a ruck contest to get the next clearance

He still was one of our best but was definitely beaten.
