Buddy Franklin

(SYD­NEY)

Inside Sport - - FOOTY FINALS -

Can’t go past Buddy. He’s fear­some, es­pe­cially around the 50-me­tre arc. He’s a big man who can burn up a flank and kick an im­pos­si­ble an­gle goal. Such a mo­bile, deft big man can be star­tling, vis­ually strik­ing, and mint fi­nals mem­o­ries.

What can we ex­pect from him?

Buddy’s bet­ter than ever, team-mates say – a fright­en­ing prospect. If that’s the case, he’ll pro­vide some of the fi­nals’ more dra­matic mo­ments. He’s run­ning with more free­dom than ever. Ex­pect him to sweep in from any­where out­side or within the 50m arc and carry that bomb like Bockscar car­ried Fat Boy. When that hap­pens, time stops; awe be­gins. Op­po­nents get up­staged, frozen. Buddy will pro­vide his­tor­i­cal mo­ments.
