Walsh is the rising star this year, then it's Duursma closing very quickly, then it's a long long way back to the rest.

Best first year player since Chad.

Chad was pretty average his first year, the talent was clearly there but it was much more Butters level output than Rozee/Duursma level output. It was his second year that he broke out.

Yeah Chad had a breakout v Brisbane late in the season and that was about it.

Duursma's been crucial for us all year, the amount of times he is both defending on the last line and lining up for a set shot is testament to the impact he's had for us all over the ground.

His possessions are all earnt too, nothing easy, just pure run and guts

Best first year player since Nick Stevens then.. 😬
