Yeah, and stints on ball. No law says he must be towards the end of our chains. Hope Brad remembers that. Look at the early pages of this thread, a versatile inside mid.. albeit he was 12yrs old. who knows he could have been our Selwood.

To all the nay sayers this guy give his all week in and week out. Currently standing at Equal 7th in the AFL for goal assists.

I think that stat is score assists.
I think he's one of many blokes who could be refreshed with a new coach looking at him without preconceptions. A la Wellsy after Laidley funnily enough.

Heaps of fun

Would love him to be tried as a Tagger till BJ gets fit.

Would be a pest and make those on ballers earn every touch
The best taggers are usually big-bodied players. Imagine Kayne going shoulder to shoulder with Wines, Cripps, Dangerfield etc from a standing starting. He'd be ragdolled.

IMO played a more than solid game tonight. Overall has had an OK patch the last few weeks.

Not sure if it does anything to the stat sheet, but his ability to contest an aerial 2 on 1 and not be marked against is elite, as is his follow up on the ground.

Turner is a strange one
Frustrates so often but his 1%ers and 2nd efforts are a commodity for us.
Would like to see him as a lock down defender to take out those small forwards that crush us so often.

Then even if Kayne isnt getting a lot of the ball if his opponent is not making an impact Kaynes role in the team is so much more valuable than what it is at the moment (ie negligible impact)
