It was late last year when the Magpies played Essendon at the MCG while ruckman Grundy wasnt dominant during the encounter, Madden saw enough. And Madden knows a thing or two about the ruck caper having played 378 games in the key role he also kicked 575 goals while resting forward between 1974 and 1992. He played against a varied group, from the aggression of Don Scott to the sheer size of his brother Justin or the brilliant ruck technique of Damian Bourke. Madden attributed some of his success to lessons taught by his one-time Essendon ruck coach John Sam Newman. I was taller than Sam, fitter and more athletic when we played against each other but he kept getting the ball. He knew when to jump and how to position himself so he could get purchase on an opponent, Madden said. From the little I have seen of Grundy he understands what to do. The first time I saw him I thought he must have been around for a while until someone told me he was 19. He just looked like a seasoned ruckman right from the start. Some players just have it and he is one. Madden was speaking before a round in which West Coast ruckman Dean Cox was primed to become the games record holder for the Eagles, passing the 276 that Glen Jakovich played. Madden admires the athleticism of Cox, describing him as like a taller version of Jim Stynes. He uses the ball well on both sides and can go forward and kick goals, which is so important in todays game, Madden said. Green Grundy wins high praise Soft Crows on endangered list A TOUGH talking Brenton Sanderson has vowed the winless Crows will play with more aggression against St Kilda on Sunday in a match which could define their year. Describing the Etihad Stadium clash as a must-win, Sanderson says Adelaide must play with a bit more intensity and a bit more aggression to get their season back on track. The team has been criticised for being too nice and not unsettling the opposition, which has led to star midfielder Patrick Dangerfield being battered from pillar to post. But Sanderson said that was about to change. The better sides in the competition bring that (aggression) every week, he said. So thats an area we think we need to improve on. Sanderson doesnt believe the Crows lack tough players, they just need to play more team-oriented football to help each other out. Critical of the lack of contributors in the opening three rounds, Sanderson has called on players to produce a complete team performance to avoid starting 0-4 a record which would virtually end the Crows finals chances in the opening month of the season. Its a mentality issue, Sanderson said of the sides apparent lack of fight. Sometimes in your desire to win you try to get the ball where sometimes the best thing you can do for the team is to block for Dangerfield, or block for Rory Sloane, so he can get the ball in space. Sanderson said spirits remained high at the club, despite a horror start to the season which has the club sitting second bottom. ROUND 4 YOUR FIRST STOP FOR FOOTBALL/superfooty
