Wasn't his fault, look at the supply into the forward line. He had good moments where he took the game on. Was nowhere our worst.
What good moments did he have? Genuinely curious.

And his last two games have absolutely been his fault, he's like a headless chook out there, dropping chest marks, virtually all of his few kicks have been smothered and very fumbly when the ball is near him.

There was a few moments where he took the game on, just didn't come off. I like when he was about to kick a goal but got smothered. Even Bucks said he doesn't place the blame on the forwards.

He's either mentally in a bad spot right now or you believe hes dropped 5 uncontested marks in his past 2 games because his skills are crap. You can believe that if you want, I believe he's just in poor form and his confidence is shot and needs VFL game time.
Yes but Mentally shot. Bit of an overstatement.

I think if you take in the game vs Richmond and this as 2 games of getting donuts and looking lost, do you really want to triple down on that? Could break him.

Just let him go back spend next 12 months in vfl ( unless form dictates otherwise) and have another preseason under him.

There are others who should be looked at like Rantall, Bianco and maybe Wilson.
Fair.

It was a lovely pick up, but yeah, he's not ready. Needs to get some confidence and increased intensity and second efforts in the VFL. Long term, I'm concerned that he might be slow.
my concern when we picked him was we had just drafted Mason Wood, my concerns have not been alleviated yet

Disagree. Watch how he's played the last 2 games, running around like a headless chicken with zero confidence.

Needs a long spell in the VFL to get some touch and form back.

The only time he took the game on he got caught then kicked into the opposition player? That's the highlight?

Each year teams are lucky enough to introduce first year players who immediately cement a best 22 spot. Man, I wish that happened with us last night. Unfortunately not even close.

You said he was worst on ground. WHE was better?

I think henry was worse because at least WHE got a goal assist, both did more harm than good being on the field though. Have to wonder how much their opponents did while they were running in circles.
