Having sat on this for a couple of days, I just don’t see “it” with Will.

As mentioned few posts up, he is just another small midfielder and something we have ample amounts of already.

On top of this, his forward craft isn’t good enough to keep a Raz or Tippa our of the side.

For mine, I won’t be surprised at all if we say thanks for coming to Will despite him appearing at AFL level already.

Well this post has aged well hah ;)

Thought he was very good today, and kept us in it in the first half. Good forward nous and showed great will for the contested ball.

Happy to be proven wrong because he was ordinary in his previous 2 outings.

His ball handling has improved immeasurably from his debut game - Reckon he's a chance to play many games s a 30% mid and 70% forward.
He seems to be picking up the pace at AFL level, hoping his form continues.

Poor mans Devon Smith tbh. Like what I've seen from him, though. Has shown more intent and passion in a few games than Zaka has in his last couple years.
