I saw Anthony Stevens take a shocking short step in one of his first games.I saw Nick Maxwell squib several times early days. One incident in particular where he got absolutely canned by the commentators. As he matured and became more of a leader, the rest took care of itself. He wasn’t the most gifted player, but as he took on more leadership and responsibility, his game evolved and he finished his career as a premiership captain who would bleed for the club.
I’m not comparing LDU to Maxwell as players, but sometimes giving a player more responsibility can do wonders for the other areas of their game.
I think LDU aspiring to be a leader will do wonders for his intensity, professionalism and will to win.

I asked a Carlton player once why Judd was so good. Same response - first to training and last back in the shed, every time. Trained the house down until the day he retired.But in all seriouslyness, Beckham used to stay behind after training every session and hit 100 free kicks. Wind, rain, sleet, shine.
LDU could learn from that.
One W. Carey was noted for that too.I asked a Carlton player once why Judd was so good. Same response - first to training and last back in the shed, every time. Trained the house down until the day he retired.
