McCartin scored 8 goals in 15 games in first season playing exclusively forward (defence in parts during 2019).Sorry I personally don’t see it. You either have natural talent or you work hard to get there.
You can argue for the first but my opinion is that he’s just not that good compared to other 19yo. In fact, McCartin showed much more
And no he does not work hard enough on the ground as a kid.
Blakey scored 19 goals in 21 games first season playing almost exclusively forward.
Finding hard to see how McCartin has shown more, in fact he has struggled as much if not more than Blakey this year.
As for hard work, Blakey is averaging around high teens to early 20s for pressure acts. He would be top 5 at the Swans. So work rate I am not sure is the issue.
The kid will come good and he’ll be bloody good in time.
McCartin should also be good, not having a go at him just illustrating a point.
