Powell, TT and Simpkin with the Fred Astaire footwork, LDU with the breakaway speed and Cunnington with the "don't argue", a full strength mid field is going to be fun to watch.

Recruiting departments across the league rated this guy below 12 other players. ******* how? 13 isn't exactly a late pick but surely if they did the draft again, Adelaide would have taken him at pick 2.

I thought of Cunnington straight away. No pressure though ;)

Watching Tom's 2020 highlight video recently (not for the first time! :p) I couldn't stop thinking 'Cunnington' - not so much for the sublime handballing, but the sheer variety, nonchalance and inevitability of his fabness. Nailed tackles, marked strongly, snapped goals or drilled them from set shots under pressure, one touch off the deck under the pump....oh, it's Tommy, he'll do it.

The confidence a player like that gives to team mates is invaluable, just hope that Cunners and Powelly get to strut their stuff together for an extended run.
