Or Essington at least.

Although you have to wonder with the consistency of those traits whether it actually does describe Essendon after all...
At this point all evidence points to Essington and Essendon being one and the same. Woosha did a good job of uniting the two. Let's see if Rutten can separate them again.

Still waiting for his 1st goal right ? I think it will be a 50M , checkside from the boundary line.

I think he stays in for the rest of the season no matter what.

Think he needs to clean up his disposal a bit. Always seems to kick floaters on the run and just jams it on the boot very rushed.
Yeah bare in mind he didnt play for a year so that will all come. The fact he’s picking up the pace of game already and taking on the tackler is like pidge when his first year.
2 years a young core midfield of pidge, zerret,dasher, perk, cox, drapes and maybe our pick this year is a lot to like.

His first half was incredible. Growing in confidence every game he plays. Once he puts on more size, works out the game a little more and becomes more confident with the ball I think we're going to have another very seriously talented midfielder (who can push forward). I don't think we've seen the best of him this season yet, slowly building up to a big game to come.

On drafting seemed perhaps a little cocky at a glance - but his play is so team oriented and disciplined. Full respect!
I've been really impressed with the all the younger players willingness to give it to the first option - same with this guy (including Bryan today as well). We have traded in some strong at the contest no bullshit / honest footballers at their base. They all clearly have tricks that will come for all to see but it's great to see their heads in tbe team game first.
