So how did this kid go this year? I watched a few games with him last year in the TAC cup and liked what I saw, natural footballing ability, knows how to kick goals albeit he is a little bit slow.
I was a bit suprised he slipped as high in the draft as he did, goes to show how clubs are absolutely in love with speed, height and aerobic ability these days and forget they have to be able to play football also.
From the little I saw, he struggled staying in games for the duration - not unexpected really -but he needs to build tank and strength. That said, he kicked some rippa goals and you can see the talent and footy nous in there. The game is not too fast for him.
Not sure of the kicking style but the same was said of SJ too - it seems to work for him so thats one thing.

Will be better for the season and I hope to see him in 2019 debuting - although I reckon Constable will get a gig before him.

YES!
VERY happy with this pickup!
Thought he'd go higher to be honest, IMO was THE small forward on the draft and has the stats to back it up.
Will play and play well next year I reckon.
12 months off.
This kind of stuff is what I saw, a genuine small forward.
Not a midfielder without the tank to play in the middle, or smaller sized player without a position.
A genuine, classy and energetic small forward.

A genuine, classy and energetic small forward.
And that is something that we have lacked for a number of years.
