Agree MCleody, it’s time for Brennan to step up. From memory he has been training with the backline group, which in hindsight has been a very good thing. I didn’t know he was a KPD when he was selected as I really only recall him playing down the other end, except for the occasional game. He probably didn’t like playing forward either if his skill set was more suited to defending. JLo seems to want to utilise players in positions where they’ve already proven themselves so it looks like Cox will definitely take on a bigger role down back.
Griffin Logue was also singled out by Hazelby MCleody as someone who needs to step up this season. I think we are going to be very pleased with what we see from him this year. He’s got a huge tank and he’s got speed in spite of his solid build. I think if he plays at CHB, a sleeping giant will be unleashed.
From the scratch match the widely held view is the combination of Cox and Logue in the Key defensive positions worked well and combining with Duman and Ryan, the backline performed strongly. I think we are going to be fine particularly if we get the run of Nathan Wilson back. It is looking more likely we will see a debut in defence from Hayden Young. So that rounds out the back 6 plus extra support from Reece Conca who I think is a bit underrated. For round one versus Essendon, I understand Daniher won’t be ready for the clash. That’s welcome news for Fremantle.
And as the cup goes up hear the shouting
