I think Patrick Cripps has a level to go to. He looked to be a developing great under Bolton, but a combination of Teague injury and form (hard to tell the cause - he had 38 disposals and 4 goals in teaumgue's first game as coach, hurt his back in the second, and struggled after) has meant he has been good but limited for two years

Reminds me more than a little of Anthony Koutoufides, who burst onto the scene aged 22-23, then really battled for form for a 2 year patch before putting it together for 2.5 amazing years aged 26-28.

Cripps is 26 now and I can't believe he won't have at least one year where he gets back to his ball winning best AND starts clunking marks in big moments too.
