Neville Jetta

Recommended Posts

Not enough love for the mini Wrecker! Ever since my favorite player Matty Whelan retired we have never had the aggressive small forward that puts their body on the line for this club. Loving the work of Jetta and hope he gets to 150 games or even

200. I also believe he has also really grown as a leader and wouldn't be surprised to see him in the leadership within the next couple of years. From the outside it seems the players have alot of respect for Nev.

Btw Matty Burgan has done a fantastic article on Jetta on his growth as a person and his leadership.

I'd think 150 would be a stretch given the slow start to his career, let alone 200.

I just read Burgs' column article and I reckon he's in the Jetta Mancrush club. Understandable given the way he's gone about it since being rookie listed. It's been a while since a player has come back from the dead as he did.

Neville has been awesome since essentially bringing his career back from the brink. You always know what you're going to get from him and he doesn't give an inch on the field. Love Nev's hardness.

Neville's the sort of player we had in the John Northey days, tough and uncomplicated: love his work.

How good was his mark and thumping pack spoils.. Always cool under pressure. Love him!

I'd say Jetta and vandenBerg are the hardest players to tackle in this team. In the modern game, that's a great skill to have. He's not the world's greatest kick but makes sensible decisions. Good player.

Someone please bump the thread when we put him on the rookie list

I don't think that's in danger of happening any time soon.

I'm a massive fan.

Jetta,Watts and Gawn are three blokes who I've always backed to come good.

Thanks Jnr-Yes I am.

My support for them all is documented here if you care to look through.

still feeling ripped about him being pinged for holding the ball when Taylor Adams fell during the tackle and fully tripped him up. We sure do get some clangers from the umps (Watts being tunnelled last week and then getting done for high contact beggars belief as well)

I was a massive critic of his pre delisting and was mystified why we rookies him.

Been proven wrong since but was right prior.

Love Jetts. was in the top 3 players on the ground on sat in my opinion. Defenders never get rewarded but he was great.

having a settled backline is so important

rarely makes a mistake and is tough.

Some perspective please. Thought his last few weeks have been disappointing (along with many others). Saturday was arguably his best game for us. Lets hope he keeps up the good form.

There ya go. Some interesting comments there fellows and gals.....

Interesting because reading all that majority of us wanted him to make it and were all disappointed when he was cut because we all knew he had it in him.

I think he is one of our most courageous players, Takes a battering most games but picks himself up and gets on with it. No whinging when free kicks go against him, even when he was obviously legged on Saturday. I admire him.

Reads the play well and finds a target most times.

Definitely part of our future.

Ahhh the old days, when every [censored] thread became about Satyriconhome...

As for Nev, absolute gem. On current form it's easy to forget he missed 6 weeks, and will still go well in the B&F.

Love Nev. He's tough, reads the play well and is certainly showing great leadership.

Love the jet

How did his grab on the weekend not get in marks of the week? (Well not on the footy shows I saw)

Lucky he was brought back for that round 23 game against the Doggies, 2 years ago at Etihad.

Played well in defense and obviously caught the eye of Roos at the time.
