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 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!
