Putting aside the quality comparison, Larkey needs to show some sort of ability to wrangle 1 on 1 to plan around as a spearhead.I don’t see Larkey working his opponent over like Brown, doesn’t do those 150m leads up and back.
to me he seems like a traditional full forward like Lloyd, for him to be successful he needs one of two things, space to lead into or the strength to be able to take on defenders..
if we get another key forward, working together, he’ll get the space..
But something he personally can control is the size/strength.
You're right, Brown's coverage was next level. Nick is tracking to be a lower production version of the same player. If he can add some real power into his game he might transcend that.
