  Toby Nankervis
Posted by: ceehook - 25-01-2019, 08:55 - Forum: Tiger Archive - Replies (7)

So many Tiger fans quickly fell in love with Toby Nankervis
with Big Ivan Maric and Hampson hampered by injury the new recruit was throw in the deep end 

and in Ivan Maric like behaviour Nank took to the role with a real zeal
he tried to smash every ruck contest and did his best to hurt guys in tackles , and when he went forward he slotted goals, yeah whats not to love about that

and he just kept backing up quarter after quarter , game after game

There are opposition ruckmen who have the better of him at centre bounces and others who are a tad more mobile 

as a second ruck option we have gone with Grigg and sometime  Jack , Edwards and even Rioli in the forward line

How do we rate his value against a Grundy or a Gawn ?

Nank is still young what can he change in his game in 2019 ?

and will he need a conventional second ruck this year with the changed rules ?

Posted by: ceehook - 24-01-2019, 10:06 - Forum: Tiger Archive - Replies (1)

The father-son recruit played mainly across half-back and on the wing in his first season at VFL level in 2018, showcasing his impressive offence with his elite kicking and natural running ability. Has the skills to mix it at AFL level and can find the ball but needs to work on his defensive side and physical attributes. Was named as an AFL emergency twice late in the year, which he should use as motivation for 2019.

Draft history: 2017 NAB AFL Draft father-son selection (Richmond) No. 34 overall.

he didn't debut last year but appeared to improve throughout the season and was getting noticed in the VFL later in the year

will he debut this year ?

what role ?

My gut feel is the club has a long term player , its just when will he make the top grade  ... thoughts , observations ?

  Kamdyn McIntosh
Posted by: ceehook - 23-01-2019, 15:08 - Forum: Tiger Archive - Replies (11)

has been in the system a while now and has 74 games under his belt

he divides the Tiger faithful some thinking he is great with his endless running and hard to beat one on one
others see him as a butcher with ball in hand

Do our flag prospects rely on the likes of Kamdyn going to a new level this year ?

Can he do it , can he raise his output and quality this year ?

  do we deserve to be premiership favourites ?
Posted by: ceehook - 21-01-2019, 14:31 - Forum: Tiger Archive - Replies (5)

the current Bet Easy market is

Us $5.00
Coll $7
Melb $7
WC $7

Ess $11
Crows $14
Giants $14
Swans $15
Cats  $17
Pork $21
Suns $5,001

The bookies are saying it is something of the end of an era with Swans , Hawks and Cats not rated highly

Collingwoods speed of transition really hurt a lot of teams , us included) and they made a GF
Can they back it up or will they get ahead of themselves ?
Will the "harder" draw bring them undone

I thought they changed after to the narrow loss to Geel at Kardinia and have arrived as a serious side
Are they premiership material  ? Don't know

the premiers 2018
they picked us apart over there with some super precise ball use
and seemed to fly under the radar for most of the season
will a harder draw keep them on the back foot ?
Will a fit Nic Nat take them to another level ?     

we had 5 losses for the season
Adelaide over there , round 2 GF rematch , the beaten GF favs were out for revenge , they played well we seemed a tad flat , ongoing issues with injuries killed of Adelaides season, looking back it was clearly the Crows best game of the their season

WC  over there , 47 points , our biggest loss for the season , we battled with them for the minor premiership for much of the season , so hardly an upset them winning the flag, we did have a very physical game the week before against North who were trying to claim they had arrived after recent wins against Swans and the Hawks, but this was part of a 10 game winning streak for the WC 

Port - 14 points , it was a tight good standard game , Port lit up in the 3rd qtr and played 10 mins of really great footy , probably, no it was their best performance for the season

GWS , 2 points , at the Sydney showgrounds , we were flat and they were pumped and ready for us. They had a lot of small set plays that really got us on the back foot, it probably was their best game for the season

Coll - 39 points , MCG , prelim final - the talk of should big Cox be dropped and the arrival of his parents saw him pull out a career best game , that coupled with the best game of the year for the side . they troubled with speed of ball movement in the previous two games this season but they took it to another level and played like they had nothing to lose

I would put the five losses came to sides playing their best game for the year . With WC aside the other teams couldn't repeat that sort of form.
Our trade mark was our structures behind the ball wearing sides down then our fitness would see us roll over them.  For us that was repeatable all season.

I would put we are proven at level and are most likely to repeat those performances in 2019 hence deserve the tag of premiership favourites

  what a good time to be a Tigers fan
Posted by: ceehook - 15-01-2019, 13:13 - Forum: Tiger Archive - Replies (8)

getting ready for work I glanced at my 2017 premiership souvenir this morning , you cant help but feel good

we all rode down to the depths again in 2016 after having such high hopes from being in finals 3 years in a row

roll on 2019

we are premiership Favs with the bookies - well hello how good is that , the football world respects us , we have found RESPECT
and aren't talking about it

the first training yesterday and people are commenting how fit all the guys look
in contract to the dark years when the big ticket item was how many were in rehab or worse still not present

the club seems very comfortable in tis skin
there's no trash talk coming out of Punt Rd or big promises

in previous years we grabbed Caddy , Prestia , Nank  clever gets

but this year we got Tom Lynch , the big fish of last years club moves  WOW
how long since that happened  ?

Nathan Brown from the bulldogs ?  or do we go back to the 70's ???

dusty served up a year of ridiculous sublime skills in 2017 and got a Brownlow for his troubles then in 2018 has a "down year" according to the experts
but tops the Champion data rankings and has returned looking super fit and relaxed  - how good is that , I'm so excited 

then we cast an eye over our latest National draft picks , we seemed to be very focused on All Australian , Captain , B&F winner  ....
and scoring high in the draft combine speed tests
it was like we shouldn't have done that well with those picks

and we still have CCJ & Balta looming large as AFL prospects from the year befores ND

everywhere you turn there is something to bring joy to a Y&B heart

What am I looking forward to the most  ?

Joint  - having Prestia on the park for more games
and seeing Dusty in full flight again

I think that's were we launch from 2019 , Prestia with his in and under ball getting and Dusty round the outside slicing teams to shreds and the rest is icing  ....beautiful icing

  Tigers lock in three
Posted by: Coach - 21-12-2018, 10:06 - Forum: Tiger Archive - Replies (4)

[Image: IMG_4088A.jpg]
Richmond has re-signed premiership utility, Kane Lambert and two young key position players, Ryan Garthwaite and Callum Coleman-Jones.

Lambert, 27, was runner-up in Richmond’s 2018 Best & Fairest and will remain at Tigerland until 2022.

Exciting key defender, Ryan Garthwaite has committed to the Tigers until 2020, while developing ruck/key forward, Callum Coleman-Jones is locked in until 2021.

Lambert, a skilful, quick, and hard-edged half-forward/midfielder began his journey with Richmond as a 23-year-old, recruited to the Tigers in the 2015 Rookie Draft.

The 2017 premiership player has gone on to play 74 games and kick 43 goals so far in the yellow and black.

Lambert averaged 22.5 disposals in season 2018, and was no. 2 at the Club for total disposals. Last season he booted 15 goals, his best haul across his four seasons of league football.

Blair Hartley, Head of Player Personnel and List Management said Lambert is an asset to both the team and the Club.
