yes his first q was a touch error riddled.

his last quarter was one of the hardest, biggest, highest stakes quarters played by a Richmond player.

ever.

if I had to fight two blokes to the death, and pick a second.

I think id be beaten to death, trying to decide wether to pick Toby Nankervis or Marlion Pickett.

and even when I made a decision, id go, WAIT

maybe ill have Nathan Broad
OMFG, you almost picked my three fav tiges, but then you nailed Broady. :clap1

Good onya for sticking fat on Marlion Easy.

I reckon he'll play even better next week - grand finals are what he's used to.

Lifted and needed to was fairly poor early in the match but lifted.

Cant ask for anymore than that.

Top 2nd half.

Both Marlion and Lambert lifted when we really needed someone to lift out of a handful.

These two did and they helped make the difference.

Geez he is a hard bastard.

This would have been the highest intensity game he's ever played. Once he adjusted to the pace of the game he was fantastic

as Dimma said, we don't rely on our champion players all the time, the others step up and play their role. They get it on and produce. None of this nonsense of flexy muscles after kicking a goal and doing mr universe (having no tan is even worst)

Wow. Pivotal. Just gets to contests, shuts em down when they think they have time and space. Amazing to watch. Fair few times last night when he deflated the crowd.

Better 2nd half but questionable when the heat is on. Seemed to be hearing footsteps which surprised me.

Yep, I'm loathe to write it but he consistently smiles himself under the footy. Very out of sync with the way he plays the game in general but it's happened a lot of times in a short career.

I find it very hard to get past it to trust him to deliver in big moments to be honest.

Lethal Matthews was also far from impressed with Marlion’s few short step moments and stated he is no automatic selection for GF

Not sure on that second half stood up.The problem is needs 4 qtr consistency not go missing in a half.Needs to cut the poor kicks to.

I noticed it too. Don't think he panics all the time just sometimes.

Gotta remember he has played less than 50 games at AFL level though, still getting experience.

Seems to be a lot better and harder when an opponent has the ball. Seems a bit slow and timid when he has it. Maybe over thinks it a bit when he has it and looks slow to dispose of the ball.

Certainly can't fault his defensive efforts though. Between him and KMac we probably the the two best defensive wingmen in the comp. Will both be important next week, will need to do a job on Duncan and Menegola
