You're not wrong. Looks like he'd never tried to bounce a sherrin before that! Apart from that, I love his highlights package. Fantastic hands both in the contest and overhead, ferocious in the tackle and looks to use the ball well too. Hoping he can have an injury free pre season so he can put pressure on the guys in the first team.
Just watched the highlights video ... where was all that in the lead up to the draft?! i would have been far more confident in the decision with some of those clips ... so much to love in there, harder than a cats head, never stops attacking the footy, absolutely smashes blokes, looks quite smart when in tight (although will have significantly less time in the AFL) and one small thing that i really liked, is that the majority of the clips that showed him kick actually followed through to him hitting a target ... always a red flag when they just show him kick it and then cut to the next (i remember thinking that about Freeman for the time we were said to be taking him until Salem took the mantle)
Oi. What's wrong with Clayton as a first name? Wash your mouth out
And everyone talking about those bounces. Did they work? I'd rather a player with a horrible bouncing action that works than a silky bouncing action that looks great but doesn't. Watching those bounces as an MSDS sufferer, I was 100% expecting them to end in Spencer-esque capers, which you would probably expect from more than 1 MFC player (TMac, anyone?) but they didn't. They went straight back into his grasp. All 3...
Those highlights were so much better than the ones i saw predraft. His core strength is leagues better than most in the TAC cup, looks very agile for a big bloke. He walked around some of the players with ease. I love his tackling as well.
