Compare him to someone like Petracca who also did an ACL as a kid. Took a few years to hit his peak, played mostly forward, but he was absolutely flying this season.
Petracca did an ACL? Had no idea.

Edit: remember it now. Missed his first year.

I am actually really looking forward to watching your midfield this year..it is going to be rolled gold
I doubt we will see Hollands in midfield in 2020. If at all, probably as a forward or on the wing. On the other hand, I am hoping to see Rankine spending some time in midfield. Nobody can read the ball like him. Based on his time trial he is working hard on his tank.

He was one of the most naturally talented kids to come through in years rankine.

Yeah everyone needs to calm the farm in that regard. He has barely played midfield minutes as a junior, going to take a few years to build a tank and body to play midfield.

Max King reinjured his knee during his first season although I agree with taking it conservatively
Max did not re-injured his knee in his first season. He did syndesmosis (high ankle sprain) while playing VFL.

Not sure if people are aware of this but Elijah's father (Ben Hollands) spent time on the lists of Sydney, Richmond and Port Adelaide between 1996-2001. After retirement, Ben spent the majority of his time playing for West Adelaide in the SANFL between 2001-2008, hence the reason Elijah was born in Adelaide and grew up a Crows supporter. He moved to Wodonga at 8 years of age and then went through the country Victorian developmental system but stayed true to his SA roots by remaining a Crows fan.






A real chip off the old block is Elijah. Very similar looking to the old man.
