New Cat Ollie Henry is a confident young goal kicker — confident enough to turn his back on a very open Jeremy Cameron early in Geelong’s round 7 win over Essendon.
Henry marked a turnover from Brandon Zerk-Thatcher and ignored several players streaking past him inside 50, including Coleman Medal leader Cameron.
“He had 17 teammates inside forward 50 and he torched them all!” Nathan Brown said.
“He absolutely burnt Jeremy Cameron there,” Steve Johnson agreed.
“He got up so slowly, as if to say ‘the man on the mark’s got me covered Jezza’,” Browny said.

Joey Montagna said Henry didn’t nail the attempt to hide it.
“He couldn’t even disguise that well enough,” he said.
Luckily for Geelong — and Henry — he went back and slotted the goal from 48 metres out straight in front.
