Robbie Rochow on ABC Grandstand yesterday

Post by happy tiger » Mon 14 May, 2018 9:22 am

I don't know if anyone else was listening yesterday and I only caught about 30 minutes while driving to work but he made some interesting comments

Firstly he commented from the players who had been at the club for a while how the general vibe at the club had improved greatly and how happy everyone was compared to previous seasons

How the match at Leichhardt had seemed to be their 1st "home game" and wished they had that atmosphere at every game

How much the players loved the Indigeneous national anthem , turns out it is from the Stradbroke Island people and had been adopted by all Aboriginal nations

Has worked under virtually every coach in the Top 8 bar Robinson /Seibold and really loved working with Cleary

Really pushing for a finals berth and then the comp really started

His injury was friendly fire and he had double vision for about ten minutes

It was going for at least another hour , was there anything else someone may have heard that we might have missed

Spent the rest of the time reflecting on how much he is relishing his well earned plodder status. ..

He must be a good plodder as he is holding some strong players out of the team.....

I was wondering, with "wrongness of head", have there every been any pretty-boy plodders? I can't think of any. It seems to always be a 4 or 5 for how ugly these blokes are.

Hayes Lauder perhaps, he was kind of pretty and definitely a plodder?

Although not a plodder
"Wrongness of head" stems back to Gavin Miller .

You need to watch the replays of games, not live with emotion ruling what you see, this dude is in a hell of a lot of effective tackles.
