Juddy’s back again with another one of his infamous top 5s.
This week Chris Judd took a look at the league’s best high flyers and it is a star studded top 5.
No stranger to controversy, Juddy could very well have left one of your favourite high flyers in the game out, take a look and see.
Here is Juddy’s top 5:
5. Majak Daw (NM)
“Gets up takes the ball at the highest point”. Bigger than most of the people he’s jumping on, it’s awe-inspiring how athletic such a big frame can be. Not only is he bigger than his opponents, he can jump higher too, and it’s exciting to watch.
4. Isaac Heeney (SYD)
As soon as Juddy called out his name, co-host Craig Hutchinson let out a little “eh” as if to disagree with the choice. Not the most athletic player on the field, but it can’t be argued that Heeney hasn’t taken some monster marks in the past. “He can do it all” as Juddy reminded the viewers.
Probably could have made it higher on the list but Juddy didn’t want to be “accused of any biases”. Comparing one of Curnow’s earlier marks this season to that of Alex Jesaulenko, Judd holds him in high regard when it comes to leaping ability.
2. Nic Naitanui (WC)
Matthew Lloyd immediately agreeing with the choice of Nic Nat going up at number two. “Elite in the air” and “great for the game”, not much more could be said about Naitanui’s ability to awe large crowds with the spectacular marks he takes.
1. Jeremy Howe (COLL)
Simply put, “nobody takes more hangers than this man”. Seems as though he’s sitting on someone’s shoulders every game and is an absolute joy to watch. Also, according to Judd, the fact that he kicks his feet out makes his screamers look “that little bit more spectacular”.
“Another terrific Juddy’s top 5” according to the man himself. Agree with Judd’s list? Or do you have other players in mind? Let us know.
