Better this week, but will benefit from the rest.
Agree. He's not running out matches and when the intensity is right on you can see he's not quite ready.

It's a pity, because if he was playing in 14 other sides he would win the RS easily.

Unfortunately we have brought Powelly down to our level - he started off the year so brilliantly and carried it on for some time - however being is such a dud team will catch up with even the best youngsters and that is what has happened here.

Rest up over the bye and give it another crack Tom - we are backing you in.

He’ll probably get his rising star nom this week based on body of work still had 18 touches also. And no one else has warranted a nom more at this stage

He was absolutely stuffed after this gut run to smother this ball.

Shows what footy IQ can do over fitness. Obviously getting the smart guys fit is best but he used his last tickets to get to the spot he knew the ball would be, any sooner or later and he's completely out of the contest.

Powell's been the single biggest highlight of this year for me. He has elite midfielder written all over him. That said, he's looked a touch off his usual in the last few weeks and the Club should have rested him coming into the bye to freshen him up imo.
isnt that actually what the bye is for?

Decent chance to get the nom this week...if they reward consistency. Robertson, Rivers, Jones or Collier-Dawkins probably had better games.

Didn't see Bianco's game, but they generally don't hand out the nom's to people on debut unless it's a real standout game.
