Good Bloke, good player… He was the best halfback in the world 10 years ago.
His playing style is outdated now. The doggies surprised a lot of teams last year by bringing back a lot of the Chris Anderson 'flat attack' style of play. I can remember a lot of people making comparisons between Noddy and Terry lamb as well. But its starting to become pretty clear that most of the other teams in the comp have woken up to it.
Very smart footy player. He's lost all his pace however and that means teams can slacken off their attack. He's doing a superb job on FOX, he's a great reader of the game and offers so much more than the boofheaded comments of blokes like Sailor and Tallis. I'd like to see him call it quits and go full time into commentary after this season.
Agree. I've been a big fan of his for ages (well at club level anyway) but he's done stuff all this season. Still has the brains and instinct but too slow and is about as dangerous as wet lettuce. You can see why the Dogs are so keen on Hodgkinson.
