thanks for the share. Love what Kiraz has been doing, still think he’s a winger through and through, remember the majority saying centre was his position in pre season
I didn’t think he was anything but a winger in the pre season. But now I think he is more than capable of playing anywhere in the back 5 on a needs basis.

How funny, people in the pre season didnt even have him in their starting backline.

Loving hes work load. Its ciraldo game style that makes the stats high. Wilson has run more meters in games over past 5 weeks. Not diminishing hes effort but like Wilson, the stats are high yet gets dominated alot in early runs. Needs to work on defence also before origin can be a remote possibility. Not knocking him love him in our team, just dont like going off stats alone.

Kiraz runs the ball with no fear and every hit up has intent. Prime example of hard work, alongside other good yardage players they compensate for our middle. Only 22 as well
Absolutely, its clear ciraldo style is back 5 to do all the hard yardage. Similar to sharks and penrith

Because Slomax kicks goals I guess
I dont think you can deny Lomax deserved a crack as much as anyone, and in fact justified his selection.

Kiraz should definitely be in the conversation as his stats are good for afew seasons now, but Lomax does some freaky things and i was highly confident he'd make after a couple of rounds this season.

Won me over when he went off at another player (I think it was Corey Allen) when he was all cheerful after a loss
Sure did, gave him lots of shit about that.

I too love this young bloke he is a great team player and an extremely likeable and humble man.Those stats are awesome, just has a red hot crack for the whole 80 every week.
Passion personified and clearly proud to be a Bulldog.

Playing around Critta is taking his game to a new level, Steel sharpens steel. Love the bloke
If I recall last year (or the previous one possibly), he was leading the dally M race until injury knocked him out of the race after round 7. When he returned the competition had worked out he needed more attention from the defence and he was an isolated threat. So he was already showing what an incredible player he was in an ultimately low quality team. I think that having threatening players around him just allows him to be freed from some defensive attention. They've got to watch everyone now.

I think the other major contributing factor is how fit this squad is, this is as fit as I have seen a bulldogs side in a very long time.

And when we finally win it, he will be crying his eyes out because of just how much it means to him.

Truth be told, I'll be crying my eyes when I see him do it too - because I will be so proud and so happy for him.
