Absolutely elite - somewhat of a weapon outside and around goals too.

Get the feeling WC have worked out what he needs to thrive after Cripps roughed him up and he lost form - 1) they need to back him, 2) they need to protect him so that he can fly under the radar so the media doesn’t hype him. Seems like a sensitive and good bloke but a very pure, honest , and reliable football player.

Very glad WC got him over Cripps (him winning the GF aside!).

He lost form after being played out of position after he returned from injury.

He's not a HFF or pure outside player. Does his best when plays as an inside mid.

His finals campaign shows that as he was moved into the guts and Redden into a more balanced role.

I’d consider Ryan for that title. Has added a lot of strings to his bow in a short amount of time. Sheed has just been more consistent than he used to be.
Nah Sheed then daylight. Ryan has also improved but was one of a few who went from 1st year to 2nd year and predictably grew more consistent.

Sheed had a body of work already. Last year was Sheed's 5th season. Halfway through, he was out of the side. Now a year later he is a vital cog.

Surely he didn't get a day off just for calling Freo "The Cockburn Dockers"?

I mean, he isn't wrong, is he?

I think Sheed's improvement has Sheppard covered just.

Shep has been a great player for quite a while, but this year he has been elite. (should be a lock for AA on current form).

Of course Sheed has come from further back - so more improvement - although as noted by others, some of this is due to position change.
