I really see McCartin as a star Full Forward. He has 1 bad attribute (kicking) while the others he's fantastic. I remember N. Reiwoldt being a terrible shot for goal in his early days but reliable in his later days. If he can address that he'll be an absolute star

His kicking improved this season. Suspect he put a lot of work into it.

Glad to hear McCartin will continue to develop as a forward

What I enjoyed the most about this article was reading about the fan input on Jack needing to get a goal and JPK doing his best to make it happen

I remember NR circa 2004 being an absolute sharpshooter before deteriorating into goal kicking mediocrity

He’s still 19. Most key forwards are only just debuting by this point in their careers. He hasn’t had the luxury of dominating in the reserves and looking like a star, he’d had to learn on the fly, so he’s held up well all things considered and I think he looks made to play inside 50.
