    Outstanding return.
    Will be interesting to see how he goes now teams will do a little more homework on him.
    Will be even more interesting with him and Buddy in the F50.
    Absolutely, they were all quality goals, but were different types of goals. On the run, off the ground, dodging opponents in a contest, contested mark. Really exciting. Hope he gels well with Buddy.

    The Ronke show was fantastic to watch. I'm sure coaches and teammates spent the week reminding him that you're only as good as your last game.

    Let's hope it is the start of great things.

    Does KB take credit for that or our Vctorian scout?

    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Re watching his goals, there's no flash in the pan about them....
    I'm not sure too many players could have kicked the 6th goal that was nominated for GOTW.

    All of a sudden we seem to have 3 exceptional small forwards - aged 19, 20 and 22.
    The eternal connundrum "what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object" was finally solved when David Hasselhoff punched himself in the face.
