Yea I noticed this as well. He takes way too long to decide then execute. He can get away with it in the lower leagues but not in the AFL.He’s footwork in traffic and silky kicks are impressive but am I the only one to notice he actually struggles with handballs.
His footy brain is that of an inexperienced player and he can make skill errors, but to question Picketts attack on the game is plain wrong. Dude is at every contest, throwing himself at every ball.
I’m yet to be convinced , spends plenty of time watching when he could impact. Particularly when he doesn’t have the footy .It`s just his quiet, laconic nature I think.
Selected his target well. All of us knew from experience Ellis was no chance to score from thereBest he has played when a game was in the balance , albeit the unnecessary high tackle to Ellis on the boundary line In the last .
That level of intensity including when the opposition has the footy is what he needs to provide consistently .
