So excited for what this fella can bring in 2019 and beyond. Has the potential to one of the best in the league, not just at Tulla.
I was invested early in his draft year when he was touted as a top 30 pick, hoping we’d nab him with our second rounder. Then he rapidly rose up draft boards as our season spiralled and we were still a chance to get him (albeit with our first pick).
Then we got pick 5 from the Saints and it all but ensured Francis would be ours (I’m very happy with Parish as the combo). While there’s been a bit of a journey between then and now, the future - touch wood - is looking brighter by the day.
Stand by my original call - a Hodge / C.Cornea hybrid: tough, aggressive, reads the play, great overhead, great kick. Will be a player that we really build from at half back. Someone that changes momentum of games regularly.
