Personally I think he's the best young mid in the comp. Can play inside, out, up forward even push up back. Can't be tackled, super strong, great skills and also a smart footballer. An absolute star.

Did Melbourne make a mistake not picking him up in 2009 instead of 1 of Trengove or Scully? 33 touches, 7 marks, 4 clearances, 4.2 goals today and BOG. Averaging 25+ touches a game and nearly 2 goals a game in his 2nd year. Saw a lot of people on BF saying he would have 2nd year blues and had no upside. :eek:

Great game from Dustin is going very nicely. Should not have got that free though towards the end of the game. Definitely ducked his head and should have been called holding the ball.

Great game against rubbish opposition with heaps of injuries and poor fitness.

Trengove will be better than Scully and Martin IMO, but all three great players.

Manchild and very confident which is great to see.

Good game against a horrible team.

His last goal was a joke as he played for the free kick, which was pathetic.


Trengove and Scully are comfortably better players than him.

He's looked the best of that draft since day 1 and looks absolutely streets ahead of the pack now.

Fantastic performance. Possibly the midfielder I would take first if I had to build a side from scratch. Was impressed with him last week against us also. Just a massively talented player.

He is the driving force of the club already, and Tiges must be ecstatic they have drafted such a player to build around. He's the pick of the crop from last years rookies and we're starting to see his high skill level shown more rather than just the in and under stuff. Has been great coaching also playing him at half forward.

His game today was probably as good as any superstar has produced in their first 30 odd games.

Best young footballer I've ever seen.

Already elite. If Judd played a game like that tonight they'd rename the sport Juddball.

I can see why Roos wanted to swap pick 6 and 11 for pick 3, the kid is already a complete gun. Richmond's midfield is freakishly good!
i rated him the pick of the draft but then I always prefer inside hard ball winners to outside runners.

Richmonds midfield is developing very very nicely However I think you are a little over excited for a swans fan, they aint that freakishly good yet ;)
