Was solid. Looks like a slow improver but will be pretty good in a couple of years
Why hasn’t he won a 2nd flag yet?!?!?
Dud delist!!

Jks I love how he goes about it. Clearly he is given a role to be a tackling machine and does it well. Yes he has to improve a few things but who doesn’t.
Don't forget he's coming off shoulder surgery in the preseason, if he keeps building, his second half of the season should be what we expected after his first 5 games.

Just think of it this way , Somebody has to do what he is doing and if Graham was not doing it ................. who would
This. Yes it would be nice for him to find more of the ball and use it more effectively when he does get it but in between all of that he is running himself into the ground and doing the team things. I see no reason why we would drop him with the style of football we play.

Really suprised, I thought he was one of our better players, especially in the first half. Think of his age, games played, who would would have played on against Port. Jesus Christ. He was basically the starting mid against Port who have a lot of big bodied midfielders.

I thought he was great, just my view.

Honestly think he has been really sub standard this year. His disposal is woeful. He is 6th in the competition in clangers, all of the other players in the top 10 are ones that get a lot more of the ball and do damage offensively. Has some great attributes but hurting the team atm in my opinion.

Don’t worry guys. I doubt we will miss his 14 touches, lack of run, poor disposal, trampoline hands and his gigantic rubber tits.

Ross can provide defensive pressure with offensive power too.

Cotchin still to come back so Graham could be 2 spots back in the queue.

He's a 20 year old who is one dimensional. Let's not overreact that he's the 2nd coming.

If we're honest, he's been average for over a year now but we're blinded by the 2017 GF.

Needs to rediscover how to win some ball - he doesn't need to get 30 touches, but you can't hold your place just because you tackle.

Look at Bakers kick to Lynch against Port in the 4th quarter, precision. Compare that to Graham's kick to Lambert which Drew intercepted. Fact of the matter is Graham not only can't find it, he doesn't use it well either. A stint in the VFL is warranted.

Still rate him though.
