Plowman is quicker than Setterfield, Kennedy and Cripps at least. Solid body. Great reader of the play and very good footskills. I think he is wasted deep in defence on small forwards. You can tell he is just itching to get further up the ground too. He's always getting further out than he probably should.You're suggesting we add Plowman to the midfield rotation so that we have yet another player we can complain about being consigned to the back pocket instead of the midfield?
In all seriousness, I like the idea. He's got that desperate lunge defensively, has smart hands, is generally a good user of the ball, and is kind of weirdly faster than you'd think. I seem to remember someone at some point saying that they rated him as a junior as a potential midfielder, that he could be anything.
All I'll say if it comes off, though, is trust Carlton to play and develop one of their best mids as a lockdown back pocket.
He was touted as potentially being able to transition into the midfield as a junior. Some have said he can't do it, without really giving him a chance in there. I reckon he's got just as good a chance as Williams has.
