And there's more than a sense of deja vu.By Chalapt Sonti
What drives someone who has done it all, and then some? It’s easy for Saad Saad.
‘‘One more premiership before I retire would be good,’’ the champion Seymour full forward said.
There’s also the whispered desire to kick 1000 goals for the club he loves, and at the rate he’s going that should be within three years.
Saad achieved a double-double on Saturday. For the second year in a row he brought up a century of goals in the last game of the season (almost down to the same time in the same quarter as 2012, and the fourth time he’s reached triple figures) and capped it off with the Mark Cox Medal that night for the Lions best-and-fairest.
Saad went into the game at Mansfield needing eight goals for the ton, and his first thought was for the team.
‘‘There was a bit of pressure on at the start, we needed to win by as much as we could and I thought I needed to consistently kick two goals a quarter,’’ he said.
‘‘I kicked two in the first and in the second quarter I got another four and I knew I had it in the bag.’’
