I had this very discussion with an Essendin supporter relative of mine last year. Without my blue blinkers: his bulk’s been his strength, he's never been a super spreader with notable pace. whatever spreading ability he had in past is more than he’ll have in future, doubt the game gets slower. I think his best is behind him, but he could still be reasonably good.He bulked up this season and couldn't move, possibly injury related, I just see the bigger guys run from stoppage better than him, He doesn't need to be as big as he was this year IMO, less weight has to be better for his back and legs in the long run?
Anyway he's a watch for me because a lot of people have given him grief the past 2 seasons and think his best is behind him, I think he can reach his best again.
