For those that haven't seen Raak play

He's a very aggressive defender that has the ability to play as a midfielder in terms of disposals %
Can also play a lock down role on talls and smalls

huge upsize on the lad once he fills his body out

His brother is a speedy midfielder atm

A 191cm lockdown defender isn't quite the KPD we were hoping for but I'm not complaining at all

I thought I’d read somewhere he’d grown a bit, 194 is goood news
He's still on the light side for a 194cm player. Bob Murphy though much shorter had a similar build and was able to fashion a very long and successful career but he had exceptional evasive skills, foot skills and decision making. I haven't read anything to suggest Raak has similar skill levels so he's just got to do the basics consistently well. There's no doubting his application and determination.

The danger is that he will be too easily brushed aside by big-bodied opponents.

His efforts in building up his body have been really commendable, might be able to get some more weight and strength on him.
