Underrated going by some comments

The bloke wins the hard ball, tackles well, links up well and plays only 70% game time

Foot skills underrated also, hits the leading forward lace out much better than a lot of others in our team

I’d point my finger at another half dozen or so before I get to this bloke
Yeah i'll bet we know whose top of the list too.

Higgo is more of a block for Ahern, maybe LDU as well. Personally I'd have the three of them in there and rotate them thru the midfield HFF. Cunners as well.
I think what the last few weeks has shown us is we still get run off our feet.
We need more people running thru the midfield not less.
There’s room for all of them.

Looks like its going to end up being a 5-6 week Calf for Dom, Must have been a solid tear.

Interesting to see where he fits going forward, I don't think he is going to dislodge the likes of Cunners or Higgins out of the center square rotations while he won't replace Dumont or Polec on the wings.

Is he purely a depth player only? Where do people see him fitting in the future?

Was always going to be a depth player - maybe a role off half back flank might suit him more

I don't think the club would have been thinking depth only considering he was in the best 22 at the start of the year.

I personally don't see him being suited to a half back role...we already have a number of guys back there who turn the footy over by foot which Dom is prone to doing that.

He has a better disposal efficency than JOSH KELLY that we all prayed would come to us
