Probably dropped down to eighth in the pecking order for a mid/fwd spot for mine.

(Went past his mural on the way home, became enraged he'd spent a few hours posing for it when if he'd actually been concentrating on football in that time, we definitely would have beaten Port).
Yeah just didn't seem focussed about playing footy to me either.

One of several players I just hope for i) availability and ii) involvement at this point. The talent isn't up for dispute so it's about continuity and progression.

Tick and tick yesterday.

The sort of kid we need to keep on the mark and pumping minutes into to get to 50 games asap then hope like hell we're in a position to exploit when they're they really start to blossom.

Showed great closing speed to halve groundballs on the wing a number of times. I really like him up the ground with stints on the ball and going forward when we need him. Basically the same role as Stephenson and Scott. All 3 give us athleticism around the midfield which we haven’t had for a long time.

Was good. Got a vote from me.

Ditto.

His first QTR was fantastic, albeit overshadowed by The LDU & Stevo Show.

He just continued to run the lines, & consistently be involved when upfield and then looked dangerous and a real threat when out of the goalsquare.

I think the coaching department would be stoked just quietly.

I feel like I'm repeating myself over and over but this kid needs to play the vast majority of his game time in the forward-line.

It's not that he can't play elsewhere but there's no rush to do so.

Was fantastic.

He is so versatile we can use in multiple roles.

A coaches dream I suspect.

Calm down.

It was an improvement on 6-7 touches a game of 2020.

It was encouraging that he had some some center bounces and was around the midfield more.


He still needs to get more of the ball, but it's encouraging signs.
