After watching our players get pushed aside so easily last week against the Power, how do we develop bigger bodied players.
When the rain came last week they out marked, out skilled and out played our boys due to their bigger bodies.
Apart from say, Fyfe ,Mundy, Bewley.Acres,Darcy, we struggle to have big bodies around the ball.
Bewley is still in his infancy as an AFL player, Acres, has yet to pull on the Purple guernsey, and Blakely has yet to prove to the players and staff that he is ready to return to the fold.
We have a load of skinny kids!!! Valente, Sturt, Young, North, Watson, Duman, maybe a few more.Now some of these have been at the club a few years, yet not filling out to become bulls around the ball.
Schultz and Crowden are thickly built , as is Matera, but not brutes to push players aside.
Have we recruited badly, or just not built them up to become players that are hard to move off the ball?
Be interested to hear what others have to say,
29 = 353.
Improver one,Taylin Duman.
