He has applied good pressure and looks like he belongs which is what you hope for.
I obviously hadn't seen him play before today but he's more than held his own, great short fast handball to Burgers for his long range goal then right place to kick his first. Hoping for more of the same.

I reckon young Ollie just won himself a new contract and pretty much stamped the papers of anyone else that thought they might be renewed like Miles. Really showed good effort and character today. Thoroughly impressed with him.
Most importantly he kept me in me in the goal kicking competition 💪🏻

Definitely showed some flashes of high football intelligence and good skills.

His debut reminded me slightly of a young lad named James Worpel, who's first game was quite a low-possession, yet effective, flashy and exciting first game for the club.

What is this blokes position? Forward, back, whats the go.

Small forward most likely.

Not sure he'll ever get a midfield tank.

He's a small forward. Always will be.

Liked what I saw, hope he gets another 3-4 to show a bit more. No reason why he can't be on the list in 2020.

Needs to show more defensive pressure, but looks like he can be an offensive weapon.

He's actual skills are ridiculously good. Whether the rest of his game comes with that who knows. But first option disposal was elite today. Whether goal, feed off for a goal or hitting a target... and I'll wear the couple of holding the ball decisions based on that creates a player who knows... but there was enough to like to give him another year.... at least.

Is he the second coming of Punky? Served his time on the rookie list and looks to feel immediately at home in the seniors.
The comparison is apt, he looks right at home, and we are so lucky that Punky is there to show him the ropes. He has the capability to nail the lightning snap and knows when to take his time and execute a kick to a teammate. Applied good pressure and also looked composed getting the ball up the ground. Very handy player.
