Assume he will be used in the reserves as a senior player with a break glass in case of emergency tag for seniors
I know that they invested less cash in him than Chol but for next year I can see him being more likely best 22.

Physically is one of the more impactful players in the league with great hands. His bash and crash style is a good complement for Ben King's mobile and leaping game style and allow him to use that speed up the ground and turn his opponents around while having Levi as the deep target who will bring it to ground.

Side note, I was coaching at my son's Auskick 5 years ago with Levi's uncle and even before his late career resurgence the Suns have had real interest even then.

Could rival most of our long term players
31% career win rate.

2017 his best year
22 games, 34 goals, kicking a goal in 19/22 matches. 2.5 contested marks per game (3rd in the league)

I heard him speak on some show a few years ago and remember thinking he sounded very intelligent and a really nice genuine guy. Think he could form some great bonds and be a good on field coach for our young key position players

He's underrated and probably better than Sam Day

Any concerns about Levi potentially not being able to cross the border for training at some point next year? The rumour is he's living just over the border in the Tweed region so he'll have to cross the QLD/NSW border for training most days.

Also do we know his vaccination status? I think the last report I saw suggested he was happy to get vaccinated in the next week or two.

No update on his Vax status are far as I'm aware, Last time we heard he was willing to get vaxxed in the new few weeks if we took him but he was waiting on a certain brand to get cleared for use in Australia (But was willing to get Pfizer if push came to shove)

He is streets ahead of Sam Day as a forward.
He's no chicken fingers but he's not exactly a smashed yam either.
