I'm pleased him had five minutes in the forward line, showed the coaches what he can do. Another ace up our sleeve if required.

Been an outstanding coaching project has Balta, I’m not sure who takes responsibility, however to harness that talent , yet still allow him to go with his crazy natural instincts has been brilliant .

At a guess I would say leppa has had a fair bit to do with him

I think I read somewhere in the last 24 hours that he was the only Tigers player out there last night without a Tigers Premiership.

Trust the boys will rectify that for him next Saturday.

Balta is now on the plane. Guess who is siting next to him?

Poor old Charlie Dixon.

Dixon was made to carry Baltas luggage all the way back to QLD.
But But But Pordadalayde's season is over. Charlie can stay home in S.A. n drown his sorrows with Kootchie, Hinkleypinkley n the rest of his team mates. He doesn't need to fly to Brisvegas just to carry Noah's luggage home for him.................................................................................................... Oh wait!

Balta is so far ahead of where Rance was at the same stage of their careers.

If he keeps this current trajectory going he could be almost as good as Rance in his prime or dare I say it, even better.

Balts was a bit unlucky with the mark and goal that Dixon got. He would have spoilt the mark if Nank hadn't blocked his run.
Has been a great replacement for Rance....... and by jingoes, he could be a good replacement for Riewoldt too.
A shame he didn't kick the goal when he went forward briefly.

I would have loved for Noah to have slotted the goal. Just to give Dixon a quiet smirk.

Bully called this bloke as our man a year out from his draft. And was adamant he was a forward. He looked bloody natural running onto that Baker kick. Genuine swing man. Mind you, the cue to swing with him wraps around the block.

I remember jokingly asking Bully who was his “Balta” in the draft , he gave a glowing wrap on Noah

What a great lesson that Rd 11 game against Port was for him. He did get a bit of help from a better midfield this game but he played Dixon differently. And used his body to get Charlie under the ball (Rance was a king at this). And then marked it.

Leppa has done his magic with this guy too.
