I was driving around today with the radio on, and my usual stations were not broadcasting much of interest, so I flicked over to SEN, to hear Dermott Brereton running through his list of the top 10 rucks in the comp. I don’t recall the full list, but he had Darcy at number one, Grundy at two, and English at six. Of course this isn’t news to most Freo fans, but it was gratifying to hear it on Victorian radio.
As usual the commentators were pretty annoying during the win against the Swans last weekend, but at one point one of them - it may have been Derm - asked who is Freo’s most important player? And I think he answered his own question: Sean Darcy.
If we are to confound the critics and make a come from behind run to make the finals, Darcy will be crucial.
There is no doubt that even with Jackson on the list as an excellent back up option in the ruck, that Darcy is our most important player. And I love him!
I’ll sleep more easily when we seal the deal on his next contract.
He’s still only 24!
