Can't help but shake the feeling he's brought in to help his mate LDU as much as anything.
I think you're really understating Bonar's ability. He will be an incredibly good player for North. So disappointed we couldn't get the best out of him and build a midfield around his talent and work ethic.

Oh I have no doubt about that, I'm not underestimating him.

I reckon we're looking to replicate the Stingrays midfield partnership.

You can't seriously be unhappy with the current midfield you've "built"? We would have gladly taken Kelly or Tarranto off your hands instead if it would help you sleep better at night.

I'm not at all. Sorry it came across that way. I just really rate Aiden as a player and person.

He means citation needed, given Bonar didn't even play in the U16 Championships due to injury.
These things are very subjective, but he is regularly described as being the best 15 or 16 yo in the country pre injury ( including about 50 times on the draft night that year. I remember every time the champion data rankings were bought up they mentioned he was excluded but was regarded as the best player blah blah) . Obviously there is a bit of hyperbole with the rating of young guys, especially if they have a detour of some sorts..... But It is not like he pulled the comment from no where
