Great win by Rory . Very close in the voting. Three of vote getters in the top 10 surprised me. Smith, Sloane and Kelly mainly on how high the votes were. Seedsman and Keays thoroughly deserved their posits. Anyone know how MacKay polled?
Smith started the season off in great form, before taking off in the middle. Even Smith's poorer games are often better than many.

I reckon he has already gone past Edwards for impact, skill and decision making. Obviously has some way to go for longevity, can see him winning a yellow jacket too.
This was my reply (back in 2015) to someone saying Laird reminded him of Edwards, two yellow jackets later suggest I was on the money - plenty howled me down at the time.

The skill side of things has dropped off a bit in his midfield role, doesn't quite have the time to dispose of the ball as he used to across half back - especially when we used to set up with the extra defender.
