Edwards on 3aw today said that he hates the nickname 'Titch'. They all call him 'Shedder' down at the club.

Pardon my ignorance, where did the nickname Titch come from? I didn't really follow player nicknames and such during the dark Terry Wallet days
Robert Walls ......

I heard it was from a former girlfriend and that is why he hates it.

Been a bit of a meh year from Edwards - but his past couple of weeks have been terrific.

His skills last week were electric.

I reckon Edwards kicking skills have improved over the past month . Questionable form early in the year - hitting his straps now .

Strange sort of player, some of the things he does are sublime and not many players in the game can replicate. At the same time can have clangers that have to be seen to be believed.

Definitely his positives outweigh the negatives and the last few weeks has been the difference at times when he has opened up play with slick handpassing within major congestion which has led to multiple scoring opportunities. Should be hitting the scoreboard a little more but others are taking up that slack.

Wonder what (if any) the hip injury early in the season has had on his kicking?

Not an excuse as such but just wondering what sort of impact a cracked hip socket would have?

But it isn't just his kicking. Sometimes he has the most amazing hands and sometimes he misses targets by 3m. He is a strange player. I really like him and as already highlighted has definitely opened up scoring opportunities for us.

One thing is for sure is he is shot when it comes to goal kicking. He is petrified to have a set shot at the moment.
He has massive X factor but needs to hit the scoreboard when the opportunity arises.
