    But he's pretty close.

    Comparing their last 5 seasons.
    Hall 2005-2009
    Bradshaw 2004-2009 (he missed all of 2007).
    The average is per season, not per games played.

    If you are looking at goals kicked, and I stand to be corrected here, but I remember that Bradshaw played in the back lines a reasonable amount during those five seasons.

    Hmmm, frees against is interesting

    Am I the only one who thinks Bradshaw is a tad underdone to be playing round 1? All the media reports have said he hasn't trained with the main group for a few months so familiarity with teammates and the game plan would have to be an issue. I hope it doesn't backfire on Saturday night.

    Who else we gonna play there. Johnston? Currie? Much rather have Bradshaw thanks. Just stick him close to goals.

    I don't think you are the lone ranger there, but maybe match time is the only way to get him up to speed and he does need as much time as possible to "gel" with his other forwards.
    Do you want to see him in Canberra?

    It'd probably be a choice between Bradshaw and Currie as the third tall so I don't think it'll 'backfire', as I'm expecting him to be able to offer more than Currie, even underdone. Given that Fisher's out injured, St.Kilda are going to have a hard time finding 3 key defenders to match up on Goodes, White and Bradshaw.

    Also, in 2008 Bradshaw had his best season ever. He'd come off an ACL the year before and barely played a practice match. Yes, I know this is a new club but he's at least shown that he can play well off a limited preparation.

    There is one important stat missing from the above, conversion. Bradshaw is and has been by far a more accurate shot for goal (not including halls form in nab cup)

    Bradshaw has ridiculous amounts of experience and talent, if he is given the OK he will do well, take the top defender at first and then if he isn't firing, he is a team player and will assist our other guys at any given chance.
