I still hold onto hope that Gresh can be our Gary Ablett Jnr. Statistically they were tracking very similar however Gresh has transitioned into the midfield earlier then Ablett did.Then there's the wildcard in Gresh.
His first full year in the midfield this year, and for the first half of it he had a couple of 10 coaches-votes games, but was bog average in between, but was playing much more consistently good footy in there for the latter half, which augurs very well for him and us going forward- if he is indeed fitter and less bulky (ie overweight!) now, and likely to be even more so by next season.
He could be just about ready to explode in there.
Stats at the same age. Different roles as Ablett was still predominantly a small forward but in a much better team. Here’s hoping Gresh explodes with that extra year on ball experience under his belt.
