I hope he gets some serious consideration for AA this year. His last 2 months have been terrific & if he finishes out the year in a similar fashion he should have every chance to make the team or the squad at the very least.

After copping an almighty pasting after the Melbourne game he has turned his season around in a big way. Not only has his form been blistering, his onfield leadership has noticeably improved. Leading from the front and doing the heavy lifting superbly despite it not suiting his natural game.

On the subject of coaches votes, he's killing it. Votes in 9 games, polled in every victory bar the Brisbane game where he was clear best on in what was looking like his best performance of the year, with 9 disposals and two goals before being knocked out early in the second. His influence is highly underrated by the unwashed masses.

Maybe Smith doesn't have the B&F wrapped up after all..

I reckon his game yesterday has been a bit underrated, 26 disposals at 81%, 13 contested, 4 inside 50's, 4 tackles and 9 CLEARANCES is a super performance. Love this bloke.
If Razzle Dazzle didn’t kick 5 andhave 19, Smith would arguably have been BOG
