Prior to draft, i believe the only concern about Walshy was his kicking disposal. Up until now I can't spot any problem in this area, in fact I reckon it has been excellent.
His worst kicking came from his left leg and not his right. I made mention on plenty of occasions last year, that he seemed to be learning to kick on his left when at times he didn't have to and when his colleagues may not have done so.
Walsh was just a player that many wanted to see flaws in and then somehow exaggerated what they were and then on the other hand, heightened the traits of others beyond reasonable assessment. This is what I saw last year. It was interesting.
