POSITION: Balanced Midfielder



SNAPSHOT: “A clean and damaging player possessing the best two-sided kick in the draft pool, Sonsie is a stoppage specialist with slick hands and smarts who can also go forward and kick goals.”



Tyler Sonsie is a balanced midfielder able to win clearances in close, but also hurt the opposition on the outside with his clean and crisp skills. Proving he could match it against senior players with a 24 disposal and two goal game in his only VFL outing for Box Hill, he may be one of a few Victorian prospects to debut at AFL level next year. Likened by recruiters to Richmond champion Trent Cotchin, such a comparison is evident in his stoppage work; able to win first possession with quick anticipation and clean hands to set up midfield thrusts, but also every chance to go forward and kick goals on his right and left boot.



STRENGTHS:

Scoreboard impact
Clean hands
Kicking
Clearances
Composure
Agility



IMPROVEMENTS:

Consistency
Gut running

Sonsie looks a ripper.

You do wonder if the intimidation factor playing alongside Dusty, Cotch, JR, Shedda and these types can get to these kids. Imagine rocking up to training day 1 and seeing a 3 time Norm Smith & Brownlow medallist just hanging out.

I want Sonsie to put his name up as a small forward as well as midfield so we don't get another one for a while.

Kicks both feet, he must be a freak!!
