    +AG, Block, Leap skink, who just rolled a normal skillup. He's a great jack of all trades for me, but I'm torn on what to take next. Catch/Jump Up/SS? I have seen scenarios for each being helpful recently. Playing more dodgy teams currently in league playoffs, but league split dodgy/bashy. I can't use someone so valuable to foul, so Sneaky Git is out. I already have another skink with +MA & Sprint, so Sprint isn't as useful. Sure Feet might even have some value. Thoughts?

    Sidestep would be my go to choice, it's really the only agility skill that gives him protection.

    I would do sidestep on the Skink. Blodge + sidestep is annoying if you're marking someone (ball carrier or receiver). It can also help protect him even when he gets knocked down.

    Also, I think it's a mistake to take Catch before Diving Catch if you're going to go that route. You can use a team reroll for the Catch, but Diving Catch will let you catch on a 2+ even in a tackle zone, and every once in a while it will give you a shot at a kick off, scattered pass, or crowd throw-in.

    well, he both hits people and repositions to follow my moving cage on offense.
    However I guess that claw needs to be put to good use, so he blocks at every opportunity he gets, for which reason block is probably better.
    Only doubt I have its that every time he blocks he needs anyway to pass that damn stupidity test, for which pro would be really useful, thus the potential situations where pro is useful are more than the situations where block is useful .... mmmmmh. ... mumble mumble ...

    It's got to be Block in my book. Failing a stupidity test is not the end of the world. Being blocked down on a BD result (either offensive or defensive) sucks much more.

    Pro is used more often but is also way less reliable, only 50-50 to rr and you still have to pass the 2 or 4+. When block works, it just works.
