I remember Hurn was probably the hardest at it inside mid in his draft year, he was tipped to go top 3 but then slid after draft camp as he didn't test that well + people thought he was a man child. I reckon his development has stunted a bit due to being just being played off the HBF, I reckon he would've been great through the middle. He's still one of the best HBF's in the league for sure.
Either way, I agree that he is one of the best half back flankers (along with Shaw and Suckling). That kick of his is weapon that just sets up the side brilliantly when rebounding. However I think any player in this position is just about always going to be a disappointment when finals roll around. Hopefully Grigg doesn't fall into this category and be an effective player in all situations.
