Like the build. Like the long arms. Is a sub 3 second 20m sprinter (very good). Has a decent leap. Long kick that looks ok but needs cleaning up a bit. Supposedly had endurance issues but ran his arse off on Saturday which put paid to that. He is a true defender. Really wants to keep his man out of the game. I love the determination. He has real fight in him.

Gonna make a huge call: he’s played his last VFL game.
Yep, he’s got the necessary qualities that make for a good defender and he also strikes me as someone who has the durable physique of a Tuck/Simmo that is unlikely to get injured which would be a refreshing change for our players.

Yeah if he can stay on the Parks I can see hopefully nothing but good things for this lad.

Huge call given his complete lack of agility, but I'll take his defensive efforts over Newman.

Sets a good standard for Williamson, though.

Can you explain what you mean by complete lack of agility? He's obvious a fast sprinter. Are you trying to say he struggles with lateral movements and changing direction? How was this measured?

What a wonderful pick-up this guy has been, especially considering he was just a rookie draft pick! Played very well today and didn’t look like he missed a beat despite coming in off the back of an injury. Very comfortable at AFL level already and has some mongrel.
