Yes he has played outside the forward line at times this year. Not so much the last few games though. Burton has been playing that backline role and has been playing it very well.Disagree. Clarko has played him purely down back a number of games, and some where he played everywhere on the ground including time back, wing and forward. For mine I thought he did ok.
That'll hurt those goals per game average too....
I also think he's a great relieving mark out of the back line kick offs, where his superior foot skills have allowed him to spot others further up the field or just switch play.
His numbers have gone down slowly over the second half of the year, but apart from a few games I feel he has still impacted the contest and games enough where you feel he has contributed. His flashes for mine are worth an entire game's worth of ho hum of JOR's for example.
But I like the kid, so I'm more glass half full on the guy that some others on here.
I'm excited to see how he'll improve next year but for now I'd have Burton in ahead of him. But I don't pick the team so will have faith in the coaches to pick the right players.
