whats his fitness like could he play a Lynch type role?I know Matty Allen quite well. A ripping lad.
Has he actually been delisted? He might get another contract yet. Whilst he hasn't made his debut, he has been on the emergency list consistently. He's very close.
Unfortunately for him he started his WC career as a key forward (think Fog. Similar size, not as quick but a bit more agile) and was stuck behind two gun Key forwards. They then also added Oscar Allen so he was going to struggle there.
This year he has transitioned to a mid - which many hoped he could when he was drafted. Has done pretty well in that role, but stuck behind one of the best midfields in the AFL.
Not sure he is likely to be a full-time mid at AFL level (speed issues I think will cost him), but if he came free, you would definitely consider it. Especially if we lose players like CEY, a Crouch or even Poholke. At 21 he still has time to develop.
