His kicking has been poor this game. 3 kicks I've seen under no pressure whatsoever and he either kicked it too short or too long.
Not quite correct, the first was to forward space as per what the team does when space can be created.
The others were a bit hit miss.
He’ll learn the tempo - good starting game.

Has vision

Sier looks good - gets to the right spots, not getting overwhelmed in contested ball situations in close.

Needs to work on the weighting of his kicks in open space but that's not uncommon when stepping up to AFL level.

Looks comfortable at the level with a solid debut.

Only knock was putting teammates under the pump with a few handballs. Apart from that he was ok.
Looked like he was too nervous to kick, definitely put his team under the pump a few times but hopefully with a bit of experience he’ll have a bit more desire to shoulder the responsibility himself.

Looks a very good in and under prospect though. Happy enough with his game.

He does a few smart things which show he has time.

The challenge is to start to win more clearances, crack in a bit more with his bigger body, and maintain fitness to run out games strongly. He does have some Swanny like traits, but Swanny was a legendary runner for a fat lazy bloke.

Weren't 2 of his early kicks assists for goal? First was for Stephenson's first goal where he kicked out of a contest to exactly where we want it (over May's head, giving Stepho room to run on), and I'm sure there was another one not long after.

I know he's 23, but he's looks like a guy who is suited to this level. Not best 22 on a healthy list, but deserves to be in the rotation, and deserves to keep getting opportunities based on this performance.

(Edit: I've been corrected by Pedro that he's only 20 - but I will keep my initial mistake up - goes to show how mature I thought he looked on debut)

Only 20. Plenty of time for improvement

Solid debut and his inside/outside balance looked good - perhaps suggesting that he'll benefit from having better players around him. While a few of his kicks fell short or went long I think they were largely a result of perceived pressure; where he made the right decision, but had more time available to execute it. Just a matter of adjusting to the pace.

Sier showed really positive indicators for me tonight. Displayed good composure with the ball, provided a bit of run for us with a couple i50s of note. Not bothered by his kicking at this point since hes still developing.
