I rewatched the second half last night and honestly I’m struggling to see much at all that he did wrong. He was actually remarkably composed for a second gamer imo.I’ve read some criticism of his game and I’m struggling with it TBH. Perhaps it’s because I didn’t watch the match live and knowing the result there’s less emotional investment in the replay? My feel is that the criticism is heightened because he’s yet to establish himself. Personally he was nowhere near as bad as Greenwood and Mayne ball in hand.
He had one questionable moment real early where he turned it over taking a 45 option on a short pass. I’m not sure it was the right option and the execution was poor, but other than that he was remarkably solid for a guy in his second game after a 6 week break from senior footy off the back of no pre-season.
For me if he backs that up v Essendon Aish doesn’t dislodge him and he books himself a finals spot.
