I remember Dumont's 2013 GF game for Norwood against North Adelaide better than I do remember any game he has played for North Melbourne.

He was BOG by a long way at half time with about 20 disposals, Norwood were double North's score, and I reckon he only picked up 3 or 4 disposals after half time as he was sat on by North. I reckon his draft position might have bumped 15 to 20 places based on that first half performance.

Very happy to have him, he offers good depth in the midfield. I reckon he could surprise some next year by playing better at Port than he did in the North system and in mediocre team.

I wont be shocked if he plays in a lot more games than people think he might.
I hope not becasue if he plays it means that Drew, Butters, Rozee, Bergman, Jones, Duursma, Sinn etc. haven't come on the way that we hoped.

Those highlights of Dumont looked a bit on the meh side to me, but he cost nothing and although I don't expect him to play many games for the Power he could be a very handy pick up for the Maggies.

Is he a better footballer than Jarrod Lienert?
