Talks very well and seems pretty mature. Love how he talk about playing with the young guys as well like he’s not one of them.

Love how he was almost annoyed about being asked about the rising star, didn't want a bar of it and just seemed pissed off we hadn't won.

That reminded me of Hodge.

Love this kid.

Scrimshaw turned 22 last Friday so that's making him ineligible. Apparently the rule is you can't turn 22 before the end of the season.

Weird rule since the other youth award Rising Star has a age date set for the start of the season.

It's turning 23 before the end of the season I believe, that's why Weitering was eligible.

I actually think day is more his own player, we will look back in 10 year and see the new modern game player. Clean, fast, dynamic and takes a number of marks.

Barring no injuries he is a bonafide star for the next 15 years.

Would like to see him play forward in the last two games

I agree. After he retires we'll look back at the end of the Day and just think "wow, that was a truly great Day".

If Day can put on some weight and add some endurance he could be Pendles 2.0.
If? You know he will do both. He's put on weight already but also still growing. He's taller and heavier than when drafted.

Not sure what role he will end up playing but he's got a lot of good traits
