Defenders don't usually get looked at.
True but if there are no standouts I could see them going for a defender like him getting the nom like the week budarick got one

12 touches and keeping a dangerous small goalless could get him rising star nom this week

I like him, but until changes his ways defensively as too tough he can't be considered a leader at North.

Downhill skiing he needs to work on.

He’s exactly how I like to see a young footballer go about it. Head over the ball, take the game on and have a crack.
If this kid doesn’t make it I’d be amazed. We’ve had enough vanilla players over the last 20 years. Give me the bloke who wants to win and be creative, not the bloke looking to win scissors paper f*n rock.

May have already been mentioned but just as a little aside, that ripping run down tackle on the wing (caused an OOF), shown in this interview, wasn't even noticed on the broadcast, not to mention the commentators didn't even realize it was Kyron. 5 Minutes earlier they had shown footage of him on the bench getting treatment, and 5 minutes after the tackle they saw him in play and said he 'had just come back on'.

Mate even I was blown away that was Kyron......felt like I’d literally seconds prior seen him getting taped on the bench. He’s a ripper.
 

Heaps of fun

Ha! I don’t really care. I just reckon KH is being judged by a few ridiculously hard for having a fair crack at being a creative good player......he could stop, prop, kick it 15 metres backwards and pass the problem onto someone else.....that‘s stood us in great stead of late. Fk that!
Good players want the ball and want the moment. He ain’t dying wondering about his career this bloke.

I can't help but think about Sam Wright and Jamie Macmillan talking about padding each other's stats on the podcast they used to do. They were joking but it felt like they might have accidentally let their guard down.
