- AFL Club
The problem with focusing on athleticism is that there have been plenty of elite athletes who never make it as an AFL player. To me Nash often looks totally lost out on the field and his "game sense" is not developed. To me Glass, as much as he makes some massive stuff ups at times, plays the game in a way that shows he understands the fundamentals of Australian Rules and where to run to get the ball, how to provide a link up, etc.Conor Nash's two biggest attributes are his athleticism and his smarts. If, or perhaps when, team structure allows I would play the bloke on the wing and let him run around. I think it would allow him to get more involved and give him greater insight into how to play the game. He looks every bit an elite athlete and I feel that he is one of the key pieces to the puzzle. It would be a very big achievement for the club and of course, for the player.
I understand he is still only 20 but really he is a long way of deserving a spot on the senior list. 0 kicks and 0 marks as a 197cm forward is just not up to standard.
