Just get the sense that this bloke could be a big presence in our finals this year. Has that cool head about him now that was missing in previous years; he just looks like he knows what he's doing. Jack Graham also has that coolness about him.
Geez; I'm not normally correct, but I'll claim this. To be fair, it was an easy get...

"The beard is a new thing this year. Vlastuin cut his chin in the first pre-season match and needed four stitches. The doctor told him not to shave as it would help avoid irritating the stitches. Weeks later he got the stitches out and the next day cut his chin again, needing another eight stitches. He has not shaved since.For a while Ben Lennon, Reece Conca and Jake Batchelor joined in with a beard group – sending progress pictures of their beards to each other – but eventually the others cracked and shaved them off.

"Cowards," Vlastuin says. "They shaved it off, then all the fans kind of jumped on to mine, so I can't really get rid of it. Now I have this big red beard. It's just big and red, so everyone notices it. The missus, Georgia, is on board. She likes it now. At the start she was not a fan."

Needs to keep it. Cult figure status.
