Really looking forward to see Charlie Constable apply his trade. Never underestimate the power of someone that has something to prove. Not only will he bring a much needed mature body but he will add to competition for list spots. At worst will strengthen our VFL side and show the kids the level is required. Great pick up. I wouldn't be surprised if he will be the steal of 2022. GO THE SUNS.

If his endurance is bad, it's almost always about how he defends.
IF his opposition midfielder just runs away from him and has significant influence toward the end of the game, it's hard to play him.

I'm not sure id say bad, CC is a footballer before athlete. He is a classic offensive accumulator. The one thing he has done well at every level is to build stats numbers. He will float forward and kick goals at times. I don't think his natural game is to defend and he is not a natural runner like someone that get drafted are. Its a matter for the MC to determine if his positives outweigh his negatives

With some other older players locked in our side he could not be selected.

I wish all the best.

Sounds like Fiorini.

Tend to disagree on Fiorini. Defends quite hard and he’s a pretty good aerobic runner, he just doesn’t have good top end speed
Haven’t noticed the defensive side.
personally. Will keep an eye on it when have the chance to attend a few more games in person.

His defensive positioning was definitely better this season but he still has some ways to go.

Ranked 3rd amongst all suns for tackles and was 3rd amongst suns midfielders in intercepts.

Again I don't think it's that he doesn't try defensively, I think he's just not quite as good at chasing players on the outside due to top end speed but he tends to drop back and zone better than a lot of our mids.
