How does he go in the ruck?

Win the odd tap or just make up numbers? What are his 2nd efforts & ‘around the ground’ attributes like?
Saw Lewis Mitchell today v Coburg for the 1st time - quite impressed.
Good taps to advantage both centre square and Boundary throw-ins.
Dangerous in forward 50 and again 3 goals - last one with the last kick of the day after the siren.

Hey BigX

How does Lewis go when the ball hits the ground. Is he alright below his knees, and is he mobile enough to exert some forward pressure.

How did Nash go today. How did he get his goals and how was he around the ground

Cheers

I was really impressed with ruck work yesterday. Was a bit quite early but had an instant impact when he went into the ruck.

This kid is the real deal, easily the best kpp/relieving ruckman we have drafted since Nathan Thompson.
Wow, big call , I hope you’re right ... he does seem to be developing very quickly! Great sign for a key Forward

So he's up against Grimley. Not the best sample size:p

Keep in mind he only started playing for BHH mid last year after some early injury problems. His development in under 12 months has been good.
This is the bit that is so pleasing for mine. Young bloke, had a few injuries, but already starting to show consistency as a key forward.

I noticed Saturday as well that he was heavily bandaged on both legs. His left leg was bandaged / taped up from ankle all the way up to his thigh and right ankle was heavily taped as wel. Remember thinking how much it would all impact his mobility. Still played very well in the ruck.

I wouldn’t be rushing him into the seniors too soon though, let him keep building more confidence and game time through box hill
