Looking good. Give him another 5-6kgs and I look forward to seeing a forward there for us that clunks marks and isn't adverse to sticking a knee in the back of anyone that is stupid enough to stand in front of him. Leaving aside Waite's ability I think Brown is somewhat his own worst enemy when it comes to lack of mongrel on field.

Statically his game doesn't look great, but sheesh he helped straighten us up and gave us another target. His marking is a feature, but what really caught my eye was when he took em on and went on a run. Had time, which you just cannot buy.

Very impressive, very excited by what this guy brings.
He moves through traffic like a midfielder

Might have been Carlton trying to uphill ski back to their players and running past him, but he does generate some absurd time and space for a bloke of his size

Gave a target all day and facilitated separation for the other forwards.

The one handed trap at ground level that set up a goal for us when Carlton looked like rebounding was one of my highlights of the day.

Don’t worry about the stats. At the ground you could see the power of work he did. Contest after contest and was hardly beaten.

Having a forward who works hard and halves the contest at worst benefited the rest of the side.

Today was a Petrie like performance where he did a lot of work that benefitted his team mates.
