He's going to be highly valuable as a distributor in the forward line.

Did he play any midfield as a junior? Seems like he'd make a ripping inside mid.
Sticks out a mile eh? Has Cunners vision and hands.

I can see why he was so highly rated at nationals, his IQ is special, you can’t teach that.

Rowell is deceptive as he's as wide across the shoulders as he is tall.

Agree.

But there was one piece of play last night on the outer wing where Jack was 1v1 against a much taller and larger player, as the ball approached them Jack moved that player with the use of his body with absolute ease.

He obviously has the centre of gravity of a Tank and he moved that opponent like he was brushing off a piece of paper.

That one snippet of play reminded me of Cunners upper body strength, coupled with his high IQ he could be a major weapon in the middle once his aerobic capacity grows.

That piece of play which resulted in the Hall goal looked like a training drill for him.

Is a footballer, just needs to work on his conditioning. Another yard or two of pace would really elevate him.
you can't turn yourself into Usain Bolt, but a good spring coach should be able to improve his times

Should be delisted for centering it to Anderson.

I was impressed with what he offered, we lack any real small forward options, so the position is there for him if he wants it.

An intriguing selection for mine.
Looks a smart enough player but is he really what we needed?
Not quick or penetrating by foot, and not tall in stature.
Does he become a mid because he's not the pacy pressure forward we currently need.

I dunno man, of all the things I'm feeling like criticizing right now, Mahony is way the fu** down that list.

Don't get me wrong... I'm happy to keep playing him. But I just wonder how he fits. He hasn't looked likely to kick a goal yet, but had a couple of assists.

Was just going to post this. I mean I like how quick he is with his decision making he's smart but we need pace in our team too many medium paced player
