Is Travis Cloke back?
A sight for sore eyes. That is the best way I can describe Travis Cloke’s performance on the weekend against a young Greater Western Sydney Giants outfit.
Cloke is arguably the most important player in the AFL when up and running. On the weekend, Cloke seemed to regain some of his 2011 form, which won him All-Australian selection.
After having his tumultuos contract talks put on hold by the club during the week, he seemed to play with more freedom and less pressure. He racked up 21 disposals, 11 marks and 6 goals for the 2010 Premiers.
This performance still has me wondering, though. Is Travis Cloke is back in form? Or was his performance influenced by the fact he was playing against the likely wooden spooners, an undersized and inexperienced GWS side.
GWS, in their maiden year in the AFL, have made a lot of sides look better than they are.
The real test for Cloke and the Magpies is in the coming weeks, with matches against Sydney, West Coast and Essendon.
What do you think Roarers? Is this the beginning of a special run of form for the Magpies star or was it a one off?
