His 'attitude' and consistency in games was the other.
I think getting slighted at the draft was the best thing to rectify any attitude and commitment issues. Has probably done him wonders as from all reports he's one of the first ones to the club and an absolute sponge.
I don't think consistency is an issue. If anything I think he's finding the ball easier at AFL level than he did at NAB League level.
His endurance base has developed, he was 3rd on the ground for KM's covered on the weekend.
He has a good set of shoulders on him, I seriously think he's going to become one of the better forward/mids in the league in the next few years.
You can see him demanding the ball ALL THE TIME, even little 15m inside kicks etc. He just wants the ball. Not all players have this or want it funnily enough (Mason Wood as an example doesn't demand the ball alot). When you combine that thirst for the ball with his skill set, he's going to be a beast.
I can seriously see him becoming close to our best player in the next decade.
This kid has it.
Wants to ball and attracts it - for a second year player to do that is pretty good. Is a footballer who knows how to use it and has good skills to boot.
And taking grabs in packs like he’s playing in the 80s
