He's been very good this year.

I've been really impressed with him forcing himself to have composure .

He's starting to realise that if you're super quick with a lethal sidestep and acceleration, that means you actually have more time to make a decision, not less.

Also starting to really work his routine in front of goal.

He can be pretty reliable for a pressure/clutch set shot a la gf helicopter I recon

I was at the ground ( v StKilda Rd 5) and talking to my daughter about shots for goal.

Her theory is Jack (Reiwoldt that is) always misses his first.

My theory is Castagna might kick wobbly but he kicks them when we need them. Late in the game, we're miles ahead, set shot for George, not far out, no big angle, we don't really need it . . . George hits the post! Just like the 2019 GF, we're miles ahead he sprays them everywhere. 2019 PF, last quarter, we're ahead but Geelong are still close enough . . . he nails it with a wobbly kick.

Gotta love Castagna, but gee he can spray them when we're ahead.

I reckon George has lifted his rating a bit this year. I dont know the stats though. Only based around how many times Ive said "He'll miss it" this year and its gone through.
My Riewoldt theory has always been if he starts badly he's generally in for a shocker.

He's in career best kicking form at the moment, both in terms of number of shots at goal and also his conversion.

He is improving the set shots. Before slamming that one into the post on Thursday I think he’d only missed one for the season.

Its clear that this guy is integral to our success (and he's playing well!!!)

Playing well is George , proud of him, who would have thought in 2017 that of our small forwards that George would be head and shoulders our best with butler battling away at the saints

He has kicked them when we need them most in big games.
Anywhere within snapping distance he is as good as anyone in the game. (Other than dusty)
