Some of the speeds he recorded really surprised me. He's not as slow as he looks. That's a myth.
Maybe he just looks knackered at times due to all the hard running/pressure he does.

good players sometimes need a small kick in the backside to show them the way. Good become Great Players when they take the kick and turn it around. Jack has overcome his early deficiency this season and came back harder and stronger to be a vital member of the 2020 premiership team. He will keep this standard going as he knows how hard it is to win the cup.

Watched the GF again yesterday and Jack runs down Dangerfield and somehow gets penalized for in back. Jack gets up and mouths off. Think I counted 5 *smile*. Lucky the ump was generous and didn't march him 50m

Passionate guy young Jack
I know, I was screaming at the TV "shut up jack" I was just waiting for the 50. It was a 70/30 decision (our way) which obviously was always going to the p diver. There was another moment in the 3rd I think where broady grabs him and gets him away as Jack gives another ump a mouthful. Got to love jacks passion, i really rate him now. He has come of age for me.

No. Dimma clearly stated when he was dropped to work on a couple of things. He rose to the challenge and has become a great player for us.

Came back without strapping on the shoulder. So also had more confidence in the shoulder, which would have helped

I think they're less inclined to give 50m for abuse if they realise the free kick was an error.

Yeah it's like the umps know they *smile* up and can't change the decision and realise they deserve the abuse

Jack Graham looks like he might be about to go up a gear.:cool:
Fridge looks supremely fit & it was really noticeable how much outside ball he received in the intraclub. He knocked up getting the footy.
his outside game is an area that previously he hasn't been all that strong in, although admittedly many of the roles he's been asked to play have been more defensive ones to this point.
With his history of shoulder injuries it's actually quite important that he add more to his outside game so it was great to see him moving so well on the weekend.
Hopefully bodes well for the season ahead..
