Nick Blakey Height, Stats, Injury, Age
Nick Blakey Height, Stats, Injury, Age – Nick Blakey, a star for Sydney, acknowledges that he never knows where the ball will land as he streams into the middle of an AFL pitch.
Blakey, though, has given credit to his team’s team-centred defence for his stunning individual performance against Carlton on Friday night.
In the Swans’ 26-point victory over Carlton, Blakey was the top-rated player on the pitch with 26 touches (21 kicks at a 71.4% efficiency), 12 marks (7 interceptions), and 626 metres gained. On Friday night, the 23-year-old embodied a more aggressive Swans team, backing his run and carry from half-back to set up a number of Sydney offensive attempts.
Nick Blakey is an oddball. We enjoy seeing him gallop through the middle like he did, according to Swans teammate Chad Warner, who spoke to Channel 7 following the game.
Former Hawks sharpshooter Ben Dixon said that he was one of the primary factors in the Swans’ victory, while Hawthorn great Jason Dunstall told Fox Footy Blakey that the Hawks “cut them (the Blues) to bits.” “Coming off half-back, he’s hard to stop because if traffic comes in front of him, he just gets around it beautifully,” Dixon said to Fox Footy. “When he has the ball, you need to be alert as a teammate.”
When asked by Fox Footy after the game what goes through his mind while he is sprinting full-speed with the football, Blakey replied: “I have no idea what I’m doing once I get it and take off. Tom Papley, aka “Paps,” always gets on me for not striking him and lowering (my eyesight).
“Those runs are enjoyable to participate in. Although I didn’t kick the ball as well as I would have liked, I can improve.
In light of the Swans’ injury issue, which has damaged the team’s top three key defenders, Paddy McCartin (concussion), Tom McCartin (concussion), and Dane Rampe (neck), Blakey, who is 195 cm tall, has been required to play as a key defender frequently this season.
Blakey was able to provide the Swans additional counterpunch on Friday night thanks to the addition of backup defender Lewis Melican. According to two premiership Kangaroo David King of Fox Footy, “He was a star forward as a junior but couldn’t get it to work as a half-forward flanker at AFL level, for whatever reason.”
“He switched to half-back, which completely altered how he played the game. Although his kicking abilities are unique, they all contribute to goals. Don’t get me wrong, he kicks some howlers, but when he’s on, they score.
Blakey credited his impressive performance against Carlton to a “simple” individual approach as well as team defensive buy-in.
