Good game on the weekend and an ideal sort of candidate for SANFL leadership which I guess led to his ascension, but yes I do agree with the sentiment that it's a missed opportunity to develop Atley or Drew in the seniors. Anyway we shall see how he goes in the back end of the year there are some traits that suggest he could become a fairly stable handy contributor.
6 disposals isn’t exactly a great game. Balanced out by 2 goals and 4 tackles but still that’s nothing to write home about. If he can find a way to get his hands on the ball more he could be a real weapon.
Can see why the coaches like him. While in the long term I think ideally we'd be developing Atley or Drew in the seniors, Sutcliffe does offer a certain versatility that neither of them can. Good on him, clearly done well through the Magpies and maybe can carve out a valuable niche in the firsts .
