Agree Mick. The aptly initialled RS is an award for fans and player managers.The RS is a weekly nomination of recognition of a good game. It was a good quarter of football as mentioned above. And DA is incorrect re nomination over a couple of games (any rookie who puts in a good game can win it...even a first gamer!).
You are correct, he has shown bits n pieces but that’s all they are, bits n pieces. Where’s the game consistency like Mills and Hannebery and Goodes and Walsh and McGrath, Stephenson et al? Worthy of RS nomination? No. Only rookie that looked like he did ‘something’ (bits n pieces) this week? That’s all it could be!
This is from wiki (I know):
Every round, a nomination is given to a standout young player who performed well during that particular round.
Even Blakey admitted he was quiet and one quarter (as proven) does not make a good game...it makes a very ordinary one look ok and the stars in your eyes glisten apparently.
The Nom gave me no jollies. Nonetheless I am delighted he has shown as much as he has in his first year, when he is shaped as a French Bean.
