I had him in my POTY votes this week.Extraordinary. Last night I saw a bloke who took a big step in terms of effort, will, leadership, and impact on the contest, especially physically.
Today I hear about a bloke that can’t kick.
I wonder whether any of you negative nellies ever found a life partner that met the grade.
It’s not an insult at all, I just don’t see it. I think Florent is a lot more dynamic. He hits each contest at full pace and then uses that pace to burst away with the ball. Hanners didn’t have that speed and relied pretty much purely on his elite hands and vision to get it out.Calling him Hanners 2.0, a multiple All-Australian, is an insult apparently.
Hewett's got it too. They can make time and space for themselves really effectively.The thing that I've noticed about Florent that sets him apart from others is that he always seems to have a bit more space and time to make a better decision with his disposal. Part of that is his physical speed, but the other bigger part is his awareness of what's around him. That's a trait that you're either blessed with or your not and as he develops at this level, I get the feeling it will become even more pronounced.
Not having a go at you specifically here, but it's amazing the different points of view posters on here have about the same deficiency depending on which player they're talking about. While he's been impressive in patches (and consistency will definitely come with time), he out needs to concentrate on his kicking skills.he kicks under pressure a bit
different player when inside versus outside
he will be fine

Hadn't noticed until I read this post, he hasn't hit a single target sinceHanners 2.0
His kicking is just bad, hasn't improved one bit. But knows how to get the ball and has good smarts and handball skills, as well as some pace and flash.
Just don't ever want him kicking it really.
His kicking is more about decision making than kicking....I reckon as he continues to build up and he has more time when in possession his decision making improves and his kicking along with it.Love most everything about him except for his subpar kicking skills which I dont think will ever get better, and maybe his quarter to quarter consistency which will get better over time.
Was excellent in the 2nd quarter of our game this year, really swung all the momentum.
