I remember him playing against Cripps, round 9 2013. Cripps a year older had a similar day disposal wise and even snagged two goals. Waterman broke even in close but used the ball substantially better around the ground, had a few goal assists and got out in front of him all day, while Cripps running patterns went wide all day. Laid an awesome tackle on him, pinged his arms and rag dolled him into the turf.I was very pro Alec. I still firmly believe he was the best true inside mid in his draft year. I was there the day he had 35 disposals and 10 clearances against vic metro in the u18 champs. Was absolutely on fire and had a very strong body with a long, powerful kick. Not overly athletic but very good football mind and vision by hand.
Would have made a huge difference to us IMO going into this season.
