McEvoy. She only moved forward in the 4th I think, and had an impact there. McEvoy has shown flashes in the two practice outings, but i'd caution against expectations of her being this years Prespakis (not that anyone has suggested that) only because Prespakis is such a rare talent, and the way in which she took to the level like a duck to water was frankly amazing. Lucy may take longer but that's ok, and she'll be a very solid contributor while she develops. Again, this is just first-look stuff. She played behind the ball against the Saints, and in the guts and up forward vs North; so maybe the coaches are still figuring her out a little.Who would you say of McEvoy or Harrington saw more midfield minutes?
On a related note, seeing McEvoy, Prespakis and Egan together for a few centre-bounces showed that our midfield has entered a new (hopefully long-term) chapter. Fair amount of young talent to work with there! Exciting to think how good they could be after a couple of seasons together.
p.s. I meant Wilson not Edwards in my earlier post about talls in the backline.
