Looked OK.

Didnt mind getting knocked around, takes care of the ball which I like.

The one concern I have is it didn't look like he had much pace which is what we are desperately crying out for on a wing.

His Long Kicking is Great from the Wing.

Did not get much chance of Running down the Wing with the Ball Today.

Rather someone who can use the ball well then a Fast Player that can not

Solid debut given the overall team performance. Just think what we might have seen if the team was playing well and there were more opportunities to find some space.

Think we have a long term wing option here. What I like most so far is his work rate up and down the field. Not bad for a kid just out of junior football and with one pre-season under his wings. Bigger engine, bigger body, more development and experience and he has the potential to be really good.

He needs to be, cause if this years crop of kids doesn’t come on we are in for a real long period of pain. In the kids we trust.

Kicking was good, looked composed generally, able to stand up in tackles. I don’t think his pace was that flash, but probably good enough and should improve with confidence, being less reactive and an improved tank. Lots to like.
Confidence is a Huge Thing.

Play him more and give him Experince.

Like that he was Poised with ball in hand and used it well.?

Still lot of Upside in him

While not elite, I think he has good pace, just lacking explosiveness at the moment. That may improve with time and conditioning.
