First couple of seasons he'd get caught 7/10 of those. But you could see what he was trying to do and knew it was just a matter of time.Another little aspect in his development is his ability to break tackles when he’s stone cold gone. Not talking about at stoppages where he’s untackleable and your only hope is a tackle from a second or third teammate. But when he’s out in the open, with no momentum, like from a bad bounce or a crap kick from a teammate. He’s taking possession, flat footed and still able to get the ball out to a teammate while being pulled to the ground.
He was sensational today, got smashed twice and didn’t give up.Personally had him down as our best overall today, just thought he stayed in the game for 4 quarters and had a handful of the best passes of the day. Had the most contested possessions for us yet was very clean and constantly working his way out of contested trouble, thought it was a great showing.
His centre square work is really starting to shine.Personally had him down as our best overall today, just thought he stayed in the game for 4 quarters and had a handful of the best passes of the day. Had the most contested possessions for us yet was very clean and constantly working his way out of trouble that would have seen most players in the league get taken to ground, thought it was a great showing.
Yeah i thought the same but maybe i am being a bit hard as i see a few on here had him very high up.I thought he was ok, serviceable game, some nice highlights, but not in our best five. Interesting that neither the Age nor Hun have in our best players. I wonder what the coaches votes will bring.
Agree completely. He's good. He will be even better when he gets his aerobic capacity better. In the off season I would be sprinting and sprinting him. He has the tools, but just needs that run all day and not spectate as much when he doesn't have the ball mentality. In my opinion when he fixes that he will be a ripper.Another good lesson for him today on workrate. Once he gets his conditioning sorted the forget about it, will be unstoppable.
