Tell your son that he needs to learn to play outside of the centre square to be selected when we already have Boak, Gray, Rockliff and Wines who are higher priority for that role.
5th highest average metres gained in the side, only behind Boak and running halfbacks.

2nd highest across all positions for average I50s.

4th in average score involvements

1st in average bounces.

Suggests he's actually not doing to badly working to the outside. He's got some work to do on his efficiency but he's 21 years old and 3 of the 4 players you mentioned are 29+.

Except I wasn’t even questioning his ability to run with the ball and kick it, just his ability to play as a forward/wing.

I’m surprised by his score involvements though.

I just don’t see why people who complain literally endlessly about players being played out of position want SPP played out of position.

SPP is the unfortunate victim of Wines having co-captain immunity. If i had to choose between the 2, I'd drop Wines.
But if we're going by most recent their most recent game, Wines is better.

Honestly some of the criticism levelled at Wines AND SPP on this board is over the top at times.

And the ex captain...though Boak is better.

He is a draftee in a position we have a captain, ex captain and high profile free agent.

Oh and the GOAT rotating through.
SPP's run and spread has been pretty good this year, i dont think he is a 1 dementional player, you could certainly play him on the half forward with a negating role on their running half back and he'd most probably end up with 3 or 4 shots on goal himself

I want him in, I reckon I’m one of his biggest fans here.

Just outlining some reasons, it isn’t his game as much as the queue ahead.

Wines has years ahead others months

An remember Boak was busted as inside mid 2 years ago by KH his career looked to be closing . Returned after unsuccessful stint half toward to inside mid this year and superb

Does bring KH judgement into question

He’ll be back!
He’s a young player with plenty of exposure, lists and careers need to be managed through. As one of the younger mids he has a long future with us.
He has one year left on contract so this ideal time for Port to move on or alternately SPP hold ground become free agent next year .

I haven’t researched this so it might be a completely outrageous comment but I feel like SPP has been shoved into that high half forward role Boak played last year. Boaks career barely survived that role and his disposal was shit poor while he played it.

Cant believe there are people on here calling to move SPP on. The kid is only 21 years old and in his third season for fu** sake.

He’s got plenty of development left ahead of him and is on track to be a an absolute beast in the midfield in the future.
