Very happy hes in this week...

Love that hes also shown some form in the midfield in the VFL, could really use his hardness around the ball. Dusty and Cotch will love it...

Then when hes forward i hope he absolutely belts Stewart

Pleased for the bloke to get a game but personally would have liked for us to play both Chol and RC-D.

Dumb picks in the rookie draft, Towner, Chol and another small forward.

Was brought in to bring the ball to ground and limit his opponent to go up third man up on Lynch, he performed that role in the first quarter and after that the ball didn't come inside 50. Question his selection instead of say Chol who could have played a relief ruck role but their are a lot of guys out there who aren't showing the required intent and that you cannot say of Townsend.

Under utilized...ought to have been played in the guts when we were being hammered in the 2 and 3rd Qs...
He's a rough and tumble guy and ought to have been in the action and soften up a few oppo bodies...that's what he does well...came on in the last Q and made a presence...well done Towner!
