Best side step I’ve seen.
Big call. It’s very good I agree but Bob held his own in the backline with a reasonable step and in the current side Naughton has a surprisingly good step and Lynch showed a bit tonight. Hard to go past the former captain who shall not be named for a step at pace though.

There was one bit of play early in the game where he pulled a sidestep from nowhere.
I love that he often plays taller than his 187cm suggests, then becomes a running type as soon as the ball hits the ground.
How good was the sidestep for goal?!

I think he’ll settle at half back. Don’t think he has the tank to play midfield, and I love his aerial stuff down back.

He’s blue chip.
If we can manage to add a blue chipper with our top 5 pick. And young Westy is boarder line, I think our mini reset may be over very quickly. Particularly if we can keep healthy next year (big if) I just wish English was healthy currently. Would love to be getting games into him.

Kid just needs time in the gym. He’s a special.
