Set up Prestia's goal with an amazing tap down. Then Lambert. Then Lynch.

The Shai shimmy to get round Myers and set up Lynch in the last was outrageous.

Five steps of electricity And a 55 meter dart. Magical.

Magician. His work in close is brilliant.
Tell me again how Myers made the U/22 AA and Bolton didn’t?

That was something special. This kid is going to be a star. The sidestep being around Myers was only second in my "In Your Face" moments to Dusty shrugging of Dangerfield's tackle for that last goal.

Haha, i was going to post the same- not necessarily to knock Miers.
Bolton should have been Capt of the U22 (if the capt is the best player.)

He has been brilliant at times this year- our No1 mid for a while when we needed him to be, then through the finals he has just been class. as an impact HFF.

perfect adjective “a magician” - yes he knows how to play this kid and I laughed out loud at that shimmie - was waiting for the turnover yet he had found a bucket load of space to move - and has speed to burn.

the media and the AFL have no idea - there is no three premiership team treated with such disrespect as the tigers when it comes to votes, selections etc.

The kid is a star. With two premierships.

That was amazing, that shimmy and gain of a few metres enabled him to get the kick over the Geelong defence and perfect for Lynch.

Was outstanding with ball in hand, and 7 tackles to go with that shows his workrate.

In Leysey parlance, I have also noticed his glute development

He looks thicker.

He is a beauty

Prestia's first goal, again. Shai had no chance of affecting the Geelong mark then leapt, turned in the air, and batted it back down to the front. Years gone he would have tried to mark it. Amazing, and selfless.

Lambert's goal - he had no right to contest that mark against Menegola on the boundary - but he did. Somehow crunched Menegola, took the mark, then laid off to George Lambert.

Lynch's goal in the last. Prestia mark/free kick, I forget. Steps the player trying to hold him on the mark. Steps again. Indian rubber man. Then a loooooong bomb to Lynch all alone in the square.

Good spot.

We called it during the game - he was instrumental in all those goals. He was massive and in the votes for mine
