Over his injuries, bigger, stronger, attacks well, aggressive in the tackle, marks well and when he doesnt he at least contest and brings the ball to ground, not the best 1on1 strength yet bet getting better, agile, kicks fairly straight, and now well behind the pecking order at Geelong with the introduction of Jeremy Cameron, and out of contract this year. Could be a very cheap and good get for a team looking for another forward. I know 2 VIC teams that have been keeping an eye on his progress. Each year there are cheapy trades that go on and nobody bats an eyelid but most generally provide good value, would he be good in your team.....

He’s not behind JC
He’s behind our 19 backman
He’s been in the backline for a year and a half now

Actually he was drafted and played as a forward, played in defensive roles as a trial throughout some scratch matches last year until injury, in 2019 he rotated through def and forward and wing positions but mostly forward. His multi positional capabilities are what have clubs interested.

I know he was drafted as a forward buy he was also not drafted in his draft year and then in his top age we drafted him
Was trialed as a forward at VFL level but obviously got moved back for a reason.
Me personally, I don’t think he will make it at an AFL club

yeah him being moved back was for developmental reasons, as a forward he was in your vfl best many weeks and had bags of 4, 5 and 6 throughout the season. best again these past two weeks at vfl level

I’ll let cats_09 and Art Vandelay_ prove those stats aren’t correct as I can’t find it
But it was something like 18 goals in 12 games including one bag of 6 against a lower side.
As for being in the best im not sure about that, last week he was in our best last week and 2 weeks prior when we won by games easily
The game we lost, he wasn’t
Those are the important ones for a backman, if he got in the best then I’d be impressed
Not against NM and PM VFL

He's had one bag of 6 in his first season, and that's only week he was named in the bests. He's next best effort is 2 goals - he played 14 games and kicked 13 goals

Over the preseason he moved to become a more permanent member of the 'Misfits'/defensive unit - so when a tall defender or 2 need a rest this season, it'll open the door for him

As for the past couple of VFL practice matches, he was in the bests last week but don't recall him in the best the week before - but considering that's based on him as a defender, it was highly unlikely he'd be playing this week
