He doesn’t need consistently high disposal numbers to have an impact. If he is getting around 20+ a week and kicking it more than half the time we are getting plenty out of him.
Sure there is, he averaged 18 this year from 75% game time. Get that up to the 85-88% game time to match most senior mids and don’t play him forward a third of the time you’ve got another handful of touches.
Whenever he gets dropped to VFL he always pushes 30 odd touches. He’s got the natural ball winning thingo just needs confidence. His lack of urgency does concern me slightly though.
He can get the ball as much as he wants at VFL level but it is at AFL level we are talking about. Many players can do this. Kyle is no different.
Will just like to say that I do like Kyle and am enjoying his development. Slight concern on his "urgency" as FlyingV mentioned, don;t think he will ever reach the level to be a top 3 midfielder at the club but a role player who can carve out a decent 100 - 150 game career is what he should aim to get to.
