Looks even better given they didn't start playing at Optus until 2018 😀

Any ideas why Lairds minutes have decreased in the past two games? 78 and 74.

Rounds 1 - 3 his minutes were 81, 101 and 90.

EDIT: I will also add that in terms of TOG%, his rounds 1 - 5 were: 81%, 95%, 88%, 75%, 83%. This seems a bit random but if anything, it is a downward trend.

EDIT 2: I just checked and his TOG% for the last 5 H&A games last season were 91%, 81%, 85%, 83%, 85%. He averaged 98.4 in this period and I am starting to think this sequence or lack thereof is normal for Rory. Crows fans, any ideas? Is he known to be carrying any sort of niggle?

If anything, and this is purely off the top of my head remembering back to watching the games over the last couple of weeks, he may have slightly seen some more time higher up the field. I won’t go as far to say he saw genuine midfield minutes. But I sort of recall seeing him further up the ground and more ‘around it’ at times the last couple of games.

Also worth noting, the shortened quarters can see blokes get unluckily stuck on the bench for longer periods, particularly when there’s a lack of goals in games or when the ball is stuck over the other side of the ground to the benches. Seems silly to think, but genuinely an issues at times, and is amplified during these shorter quarters given bench stints chew more into overall TOG percentage.

Can't recall if anything happened to him, but this opinion says it all, finished on 107.

Nathan forgot about Hill's first game where he scored 40/50 in the first quarter and then just.... disappeared ****!
Hill certainly knows how to fade out. His QxQ SC scores ...

Game 1 - 55, 62, 55, 73
Game 2 - 31, 33, 49, 55

So his average score each quarter ...
Q1: 40.5
Q2: 4.5
Q3: 4.5
Q4: 12.0

Hasn't really played footy for 2 years so I think he is only just building into it and has only played GCS and Crows to date. Will be interesting viewing against Saints and Eagles next 2.
