The next Robbie Gray
& 29 pressure acts. That effort where Wills got crunched in the marking contest and Brown bounced from contest to contest and ultimately won the free was sensational.I have never doubted him, have watched him closely, he will be good as I think Daicos will too.
Brown's stats included 9 tackles, Pendles the same. The highest.
Just Remember Jetta's Run in the 2012 PFJust counted. Cal took 17 strides with his burst goal last night. Probably ran 20m. But who cares!
Never would have pictured him having a goal like that in him! When he gets in space he's one of our quickest with the ball which I can't remember ever being a feature of his game in juniors or even his first two years at the club.
I'd go one further. Hands, side step (hand in hand with spatial awareness) and defensive application. He hunts guys like Varcoe does.I’d say neat field kicking rather than great field kicking. He lacks penetration by foot, but he knows what he can do and plays to his limitations in regards to his kicking, so that’s a tick. His set shots are awful, but that seems to be an epidemic at the club right now.
His main strengths right now are his hands and his sidestep. There’s lots to work on still, but he’s going on the right direction, which is a big positive.
