Just read this after waking up and it reminded me I had a dream about Naughty. He was having a shot from outside 50 but it fell short by about 10m. As it was descending Naughton flies in and takes a big pack mark, marking his own kick. He goes back and kicks the goal while Garry Lyon is jizzing his pants in the commentary box.

There is a small mention of him having shown promise as a forward in one of the draft write ups, but it seems the majority of people didn't see the position change coming at all.

Not sure he saw the positional change either

His set shots are getting better which is great. He’s kicked more lately.

Anyone know how to get a breakdown on his goals by set shot v open play?

Not sure where it was but someone was talking about Naughton's pressure once the ball hits the ground and the extra stuff he does that generates goals. And how they'd much rather have Naughton than Max King & co.

So, for the handful of top goalkickers, I thought I'd add GAs and Tackles to see what it looked like.

Naughton is third on goal assists and easily leads this group on tackles. Max King runs last on both GAs and Ts.

Naughton would have to be in the discussion for AA on those sorts of stats.
