Shai threw the Spurs mentality out the window with that one :)

Much as I love George and Lambo, they are in the bottom three from mine when I consider who I would want to take a clutch set shot for goal for us.
George is certainly in my bottom one players to take a set shot. Lambo is tolerable.

Lambert doesn't have a long kick but rarely misses IIRC

71.51 (122 shots) at 58%.

JC 98.84 (182 shots) @ 53.8%.

I realise the stats will probably prove me wrong, but neither fill me with great confidence.

When George is off he really stinks it up, and I don't know why but Lambo makes me nervous on set shots. Must be a body language thing that I perceive to be a sign of low confidence.

Don't worry about the pass - how about the mark he took? Came from nowhere and jumped on the blokes head.

Similarly kicked to Lynch after taking a speccie in the 2019 QF. Shai has really learned to read the play and go for the unselfish pass when it is on. What a star.

While I shudder when George takes a set shot, he does tend to get them when we need them - goal in the 2020 GF and a decent kick from a set shot in the 2019 PF both stick in my mind. When we don't need them, 2019 GF, he sprays them everywhere!

One of my favourite parts of the GF, clear mark too.

Menegola doing his best John Michael-Howson impersonation 'I touched the ball, I had my hand on the ball' while Shai sprays a pass to Castagna which luckily hit Lambert.

watching the GF highlights while I drink my 2nd coffee.

$hai was incredible.

Created the 1st goal of the match for Prestia with an astounding levitating pirouette volleyball set.

then he made freakish goal assist after assist.

what a unique talent.

there really is a god

you must have missed the 2020 preliminary Richmond V Port Adelaide streak?

No ice-veined lambo, and its Cats V Port for the 2020 GF until the end of time.

I would throw Lambo the ball to kick for my life within 40m probably 3rd only to JR and Dusty.

If jack or Dusty didnt want the pressure ( :rotfl1 ), I'd probably be looking at Nank as well, but chuck it to Lambo

Gotta love this guy from the start. those 3 (or 2) goals in his first game against swans was a great indication of the raw talent this guy had. Long live Shai.
