Don’t know if this’ll work:can we have a link to the Syd wellness pics?
The notion that Syd came into preseason fit is incorrect.I think Stacky was well prepared for this season as he looked fit and in good touch in the preseason games. Took a speccy but i can't remember who it was against. Looked like he was going to repeat his 2019 season. Then covid came along and he came back very unfit.
Don’t know if this’ll work:
Having him playing well next year with our other younger players, will place us in a good position. Then we go and get the KPP we lack. We need the role players ready prior our catch.Seriously, hope he does well. If he gets back to last years form that will be a massive bonus for us.
I would agree with you Caesar, especially as you had first hand glances., and Stackie never looked focussed or fit on field in any game he played not even round 1 against the Blues.The notion that Syd came into preseason fit is incorrect.
Yep Noah admitted he did not come back in ideal condition pre-season but then knuckled down and smashed it in the lockdown period, the rest is history.I would agree with you Caesar, especially as you had first hand glances., and Stackie never looked focussed or fit on field in any game he played not even round 1 against the Blues.
From memory there were a couple of younger Tigers who didn't return in as impressive as shape as expected from memory and one of them if my memory serves me correctly was Noah Balta, yet he wound up and came good at the right time.
Had a couple of poor practice games did Noah and presented not in best condition at one point, hence started the year in the reserves after being touted to start in KPD prior.
Proof of that was Broady going to the wing to open a spot for him, but that lasted 2 pre season games and Balta was out Broady back to defence after playing some good footy on the wing.
Noah in the end has a Premiership medal and Stacky for all his highlights still does not have one.
Hopefully he gets re calibrated and plays with a point to prove and earns himself one.
The Tigers have one possibly 2 shots left before the list starts to denegrate via retirements.
Unfortunately, for whatever reason, Stack didn’t get the message, and Noah did.
Bolton already had a Premiership medal when he did that, though. However, I do think Bolton had a bit of growing up to do in his first couple of seasons and hopefully going into his 3rd season, Stacky has got his head together.Always a worry when after one season Puma made him the poster boy for AFL ahead of DeGoey. A bit of Icarus in Stacky, flew too high and likely ignored the warnings.
he should copy what Bolton did last off season.
