You’re better than me. I doubted the whole lot. Had him axed and told several mates he was a list clogger.I really didn't think it was possible for him to be this good this fast, never doubted his potential but i definitely was unsure if he was going to be ready to be a serious contributor this year.
What he is doing to start the year is easily the silver lining of this team. Absolute star in the making
This is what excites me - the possibilities. With his rapid rate of football improvement and natural athletic capabilities, I think he can definitely be used as a burst player further up the field. I’d like to see us give him some small cameos on ball, wing, up forward while playing the bulk of his footy down back mastering that craft this year. When we get Sicily, Day and DGB into side, we need some of these half back guns being able to play multiple roles.Can’t we use him off the back of the square in center bounces? Seems to be the place we need most of a boost
Just wait till his buddy Downie gets going. There were glimpses of real chemistry in the practice gamesHis rate of improvement in 12 months is amazing. He was miles off it last year. But he’d be in our top 3 players over the first three games.
He’s clean with the ground ball, he’s making good decisions after his burst runs, his footskills are tidy and his positioning is improving every week (can’t recall him being caught out like last week).
He’s also the most exciting player we’ve had since Cyril and buddy.
Yeah my son now wants a new Hawthorn footy jumper with number 29 on the backThe kids at the games ABSOLUTELY love him. There will be a huge jump in number 29s on jumpers next year.
He is becoming a star and gee is he exciting to watch.

the backline is stacked at the moment.
In round one he caught right up to Tippa, who had a good 5/10m head start on him. His acceleration is ridiculous.His acceleration from a stand still is insane. There was a couple times yesterday where he was basically stationary trying to gather a loose ball and there were Geelong players already running in prepared to tackle once he collected it. But once he gets off the line he's pretty much moving as quickly as those players and then it's only a second later and he's already putting distance on them.
That acceleration could make him a super dangerous inside mid eventually. Would go nicely with that fend off he showed us last week.
Your a horrible man for making us watch that again.
take a look. He was actually out on the wing when the ball was crossed to Burgers.
