Except Tom Campbell finished 3rd in the Liston ahead of him, named BOG x 9 times and averaged 24 touches, 34 hitouts and a goal a game, with one of those BOG's coming against Pittonet in his only game against Box Hill.Pretty dominant at vfl level. He and Meese the 2 best rucks by a margin IMO. Finished 4th in the vfl Brownlow equivalent. averaged basically 40 hitouts, plenty to advantage. Runner up in the B&F.
whether it tranlates to afl remsins to be seen.
(would hate to lose him but would understand him seeking greater opportnity given he is at one of the few clubs with 2 afl quality 1st rucks)
Phillips has performed to Zac Clarke levels at AFL level
I'd have preferred someone like Darcy Cameron or Archie Smith. If only we chased Tom Campbell last year.Would have thought it would be smarter for Essendon to just go after Pittonet.
Admittedly the price tag of 5, 9 and McDonald-Tipungwuti might be a little steep for Dodoro
Lol Phillips is much better than Clarke.Phillips has performed to Zac Clarke levels at AFL level
