World news – Pies signed Grundy on a monster deal. Now he has to reinvent himself or become a $ 7 million anchor


All eyes are on the battle in the Friday night blockbuster between Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs.

It was all one-way traffic recently, and Brodie Grundy beat his Bulldogs opponents, garnering a maximum of three Brownlow votes in all of the last three clashes.

But how dominant can the pie be if Grundy ends the 2020 campaign disappointingly and Tim English gives additional support?

“I want to find out who Brodie Grundy is. I want to know in early 2021, « said David King on Fox Footys AFL 360.

 » He has Stef Martin and this man (Tim English) fighting in small outbreaks on Friday night because Bevo doesn’t allow long outbreaks are. » But who is Brodie Grundy? If the game goes one way, it’s likely removed from Grundy.

“The Ruckman will be able to catch the mark this year or move forward within 50 and the contested mark. The kick down the line will wear off, there will be fewer of them because of the corridor hunt and the undisputed short ball marking game if we think that’s how it goes.

“So the Ruckman will have fewer chances across the board. We know that we are already seeing 30 percent fewer border crossings, so the border work on the ground on which this role is located has also dissolved.

Grundy’s incredible $ 7 million deal starts this season with King believing the Star Ruck will have to do more in 2021 as the fixtures have changed over the course of the competition.

“Grundy took four marks within 50 last year and four marks within 50 last year. It’s not a huge volume of work. Intercept marks are the next stage, I think he took 17 last year. Max Gawn needs about 30 per season.

« If you can’t come forward and get behind the ball to help your back, what are you as a Ruckman? Nic Nat does it with low numbers, but his clearance work in the middle is so far superior that it changes the game.

« If you’ve signed someone for seven years for $ 7 million, they’ve got to bring something that changes the way the game plays. » I want to see that. Can they still do that ?

« We know he had a bad year last year and the footballing world is prepared for hub life (let’s say). Let’s turn the page: « We have to see it Friday night, we have to start strong and that’s why he’s on the watch list. »

Leigh Montagna, who has set Martin up for a one-on-one duel with Grundy , believes this will open the door for the Bulldogs to find the perfect match for the forward line.

« Take care of Tim English. Because of this, I think Stef Martin will be playing in the jerk for most of the game, trying to moan Grundy and limit his influence. I think the Bulldogs may have found one in Tim English as a striker, « he added.

 » He had four shots, five shots in the two practice games before Round 1. He scored two points within 50, had 17 Departures and 1.3 in this game (against Melbourne).  »

« He’s a great brand, moves wonderfully, and he’s a lovely kid. I wonder if Stef Martin could accidentally bring an elite forward if he accidentally supports Tim English.

 » It did Bruce helped and could potentially send Aaron Naughton to central defense where he would be an all-Australian central defender if he could play there for a full year.
