We're in desperate need of need of his speed and spark up forward. If he can keep improving it will give us a forward option who really makes oppo defenders panic. PLus the added bonus of hopefully keeping Colyer out of the team.

I.love this young blokes speed & attitude.
Reminds me a bit of a young Steven hill. But maybe a little harder at the ball without the goal awareness that will come with game time & composure which he seems to be grasping.

He will become what hilly should of been before the tagging & injuries kicked in..

I'm torn...he could be a very good option on the wing, but having his speed and sure handling across half forward is exactly what we need atm...combining Weston and him in the same forward line could be sensational.

If he keeps on developing he'll be a huge asset regardless.

Henry and Sturt too. That’s a fast forward set up.

He played wing and half forward. That will probably continue.

Given how few rotations there could be in another few years we will want as many players who can float from wing to half forward and half back.

I'd like to think we can cycle all of Frederick, Acres, Aish, Young, Wilson, Henry, Crowden, Switkowski at times through the wing. Especially playing a quick rebound style.

Tracking really nicely. That second last passage is exactly the kind of thing we need. Pity the forwards let Freddy down by giving him nothing to kick to.
