Has taken better marks than naughton,and when he gains some consistency we will have the best tall forward in the game
Yikes, maybe a bit of a stretch at this point. Naughton’s pack mark last week was incredible. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sold on Hodgey, but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

Certainly looks to be gaining confidence and took so great grabs today.
Our boys looked to have found confidence in Mitch too, looking for him to be the focal target and then watching him deliver.

His kicking for goal seems a lot more natural and how he would kick at Box Hill first few weeks he looked a little nervous seems to be settling in nicely. 13th in the league for average contested marks! but what I liek most is his follow up work to provide pressure.

He's opening the door slowly but steadily, and it honestly looks like he's now just maybe 3-12 months away from truly 'arriving'. There's bit of J. Brown about his hands and movement too. Bloody exciting.

We've had somewhat of a procession of potential key forwards that haven't really panned out for us in the last 10 years or so, from Thorp to Schoey to O'Brien, it's about time we nailed one. I have immense optimism about the new Mitch.
Non of the players you mention ever dominated the VFL like Mitch did last year nor did they ever show the contest ability at AFL level.
