Played against a very good team and our team getting belted dont think we could have asked alot more from the kid playing his 1st game , He will only improve as he gets games under his belt and will be ready net year.
20 touches from an outside mid in his first game in which we got pumped is impressive. Yes there’s some deficiencies but finding the ball with that sort of regularity is a good skill to have for a bloke that’s going to end up one of our better ball users .
Reckon Turner could be a similar high possession type possibly more inside than Naishy
A good debut that he will take a lot out of , he will develop from here , rushed a few kicks and took a lot of safe options going down line , in vfl he would take oppo on and spot up a team most times , he ll soon get to that when he works out what he can do at the level , persist
Should’ve played him weeks ago. Has shown more in 1 game than menadue has his whole career. Even markov has only really played 1 great game and that was 3 years ago. Markovs contracted next year so bye bye menadue! Pump games into Naish, the kids gonna be a phenomenal goal kicking winger.
A lot to work with based on his first game against a mature bodied opponent .
I personally wouldn’t have debuted him against Geelong, but such is our predicament we were limited with options. I was happy based on what
I saw and as I said earlier he’s come a long way in a short time. Will be interesting to see where he’s at this time next year.
Loved his game last night. I think it’s easy to be negative about players like menadue. On the flip side thought some of naish’s efforts were elite. A couple times he looked like he’d get caught yet had the awareness to draw the opponent and dish it off to a teammate who was clear rather than set the closest bloke up. Some of his kicks were absolutely stunning. Long fast precise and penetrating to a teammates advantage. A lot to love already. Think we’ve got an absolute gem. Going to prove to be a steal!
