Atkins hardness was unfairly slagged here. It was fine, for an outside mid.A desire for the hard contest and a willingness to tackle hard and often?
I can see that (from the little i've seen). Seems to hit that real hard and fast first 5 steps to get himself clear, which is a trait I love and can't believe isn't more common. Will Hamill does that too when he's attacking (seemed to do it a lot more frequently last year).Everyone seems to be comparing him to Caleb daniel..
To me he looks more like a Zac Fisher (catlton) clone..
Moves alot like him.
Welcome Parnell! Sounds like the club has long-term plans for him, hopefully they pan out.
I have a question. Why was he still available here? Given his age, he would have been eligible for the 2020 draft. Mmmmmn
Close to no footy in vic last year and very physically immature as a 17 yo so wasn’t going to get picked off his 17 yo seasonWelcome Parnell! Sounds like the club has long-term plans for him, hopefully they pan out.
I have a question. Why was he still available here? Given his age, he would have been eligible for the 2020 draft. Did he put his name in the mix but get overlooked by every club last year? Has he suddenly come out of the clouds this year? Did he not get to play any footy last year with Covid?
has rocked up this year and been a huge ball winner and the best by foot in the nab league and developed physically even though still small
I dont know why people actually say this with sarcasm..
More like the Brodie Smith role off half back. Although I'm not sure how much of an issue his lack of height would be.One thing to watch from his highlights ( which is always dangerous ) is that he has an ability to change angles with ball in hand which is very high level AFL
it’s the kicking off both feet but also the agility and vision to not just go the easy option by foot but the more attacking one
and no , I don’t think he’s competing with Luke brown , he won’t ply on the most dangerous smalls but be a playmaker we try and free up whether that’s in defence or further up the ground
easily best 22 ?I dont know why people actually say this with sarcasm..
I fully expect at this point that mookay will play nearly every remaining game this season if he stays uninjured and will be granted “just one more year” come the seasons end..
This club seriously considers him to be a veteran gun of the club and easily best 22.. theres absolutely no doubt about that.
Mackay is playing, so it's fair to say we're scraping the very bottom of the barrel. Reality is that anyone performing consistently at state league level wouldn't be far from coming under consideration if we were genuinely undertaking a rebuilding process.You’d think at least 18 months. No way is he slotting in the AFL side this year, barring some major catastrophe with injuries to the smalls brigade.
