Wasn't he only ever hyped for his cricket ability?

A bit like one of those hyped high schoolers in the States who plays 3/4/5 sports to a high level and receives a zillion scholarship offers from all the major colleges, was a super-athletic multi-sport phenom (footy, cricket, basketball), but just didn’t have the inherent talent to excel beyond juniors unforch.
Jarrod Leinert was a big one.

Personally thought he was a bit undersized and couldn’t take a contested mark if his life depended on it, but generally reliable when called upon without setting the world aflame.

Lots here thought he should’ve been a fixture, but.
