Ag5 still has uses other than dodging that makes it worth having on a skink.
Makes him Ag4 for passing, Allows easier escape from DT, gives good odds of picking the ball up in multiple tacklezones.

I really see no reason not to take it.

It's a funny choice. Ag 5 in this case (stunty but no right stuff) adds so much less value for passing or dodging than it would in any other player. His alternatives though are quite weak too. You could argue sidestep and not be wrong. Sidestep helps all the time (caging on sidelines etc). +AG in this case very highly situational.

PS it does NOT make him Ag 4 for passing. +Ag does NOT cancel a -1 for passing. The modified 1 comes into play.

I'd probably take block if it was a double

Nerves of steel doesn't help with pick-up does it?


AG + is 11. No doubles there. I would take the AG+. Pickin up in tackle zones

AG5 skinks? Absolutely disgusting.

Take it and start whistling innocently during games as you make the opponent an irrelevance.

Yeah, passing is the same numbers for an accurate thrower for AG 4, but no inaccurate throws so everything else is a fumble, but 2+ quick and 3+ short is still pretty good on MA 8 players, especially with a catch + diving catch or catch + ag skink to receive at 2+, very elfy.

It's the pickups in TZs that shine with AG 5 stunties though, no Big Hand for Lizards, but 2+ in one TZ and 3+ in two TZs with a potential short pass to follow it is crazy good on turnovers.

The thing Kickbacks always needed was more movement, and you have it built-in. Stupid Troll.

Also 3+ to walk away from diving tackle, which turns up now and then, especially vs Lizards, Rats, or Elfs.
