We should be a little circumspect in praising Mabs as the next messiah of RFC after one good but not spectacular game. After all look what happened to our last one - McBean
I think it’s just acknowledging his improvement mate. Nothing wrong with that. But can he reproduce it consistently?
McBean, ah only what if? Nah, he’s found his niche.
Mabs is no Mabjesus.

Ok he did almost exactly what i thought.
Started off like Brad Ottens and slowly drifted into Ty Esler.
He needs to contribute more.

Two goals for this week:

1. Compete with Natanui on every contest - no second thoughts, just give it 100%.
2. Push back into defensive 50 & contest every time. Make a difference.

I reckon Mabior is gonna get a premiership medal this year.

Dimma's been tying himself in knots with the ruck men plural V speed conundrum.

But Mabior is *smile* fast.

and if her can play 60% game time as a 2nd ruck,

he'll be even faster for longer.

bit of a no brainer IMHO

Whilst I'd love to see Mabs outleap him, Natanui is going to be a huge task for a non full time ruck but point 2 is a big one..that was Chol's most glaring weakness last week. He can't drop back into D50 & then not compete.
By point of comparison Nank is a beast in those aerial situations in defence.

Hopefully Ralph Carr can work his magic on Mab's as well ;)

Leppa on SEN today said he asked Blair Hartley whether player managers played a role in a players development and which player managers are best at it.
Blair replied Ralph was the best, telling, and getting, his players to put in the work and i'll get you the contract.
Mind you he had pretty easy canvases to work with Dusty & Shai.
Mabs switched to Ralph end of 2019 and immediately engaged a personal trainer in Warrnabool in a bid to build cardiovascular fitness.
Quinton Narkle joined Ralph at the start of 2021, (great mates with Shai), and he is now playing some great footy. When there were rumors of Narkle coming to Richmond in the trade period I were hoping we could get him.

Makes sense. Short, eccentric fellow with a toupe who is not a member of the footy boys club probably has a lot of personal experience on the determination needed to achieve someting/break through in career path of choice.

He surely can’t be on the darts now!

Joe Daniher regularly sits alone at the bar of The Boundary Hotel in West End, enjoying a schooner.

I like Joe Daniher. and I think he likes being Joe Who? in Brisbane

Can he keep Nick Nat down to 1 mark for the game?

Will 100% get monstered in the ruck by Nic Nat, same height, similar leap but 20kg difference, it takes a brave man not to get out of the way of that.
Can still play his role around the ground.

I like Joe too. I especially like that he doesn't play for us.

Pretty interesting insight.

A player manager adding value for their player by making their player more valuable.

Common sense isn’t always common.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves. Last year he had a couple of good games in a row and then fell away and was not considered in the back end of the year. He needs to keep his effort levels up. I would love for him to succeed but he still has a ways to go to get that monkey off his back

I don't think that bad Nantanui is bit overated for me and Soldo and Chol handled him well last time.
