He is a in and outside mid who excels when he has time and space. In juniors he was very strong on the inside and he had a good ability to shake off tackles. He lost a lot of his strength In his first year of AFL because of glandular fever.
He has been labelled as a Half back flanker because of on standout game in the Championships where he had over 45 touches.
When he has space he has excellent finishing skills but he hasn't been able to translate his under 18 form into AFL form. It seems the speed of AFL is a bit too much for him at this stage of his development. In saying that he is yet to complete a full pre-season at AFL level.
I hope the club develops him as a wingman, in his juniors he read the play well and he had excellent endurance. If you can get him running to the right spots in space he will hurt the opposition with his skills.
Daz might think otherwise, but I think with a couple of pre-seasons under his belt he could be a real weapon.
he reminds me of a poor mans dane swan,seems like he could be okay think cunnington in terms of strength,speed and conditioning but plays abit like a young dane swan. Developing off the hb not quick enough to play the gibson role. At worst he'll be a massive spud, but he could play as a back pocket like mcmahon
The thing that has me excited the most is that he choose us! How often are people complaining we aren't able to attract players to our club. We're only going to be giving up Campbell plus a 2nd rounder.. Big win.
