Probably says a bit about how much Bucks rates him so see him rushed in so quickly

I would not say he got it 100% Right as looked way under done.

Says more about where Crocker Sits
Crocker playing forward again in the twos may actually have been an audition, as they would have known that there was a fair chance that Elliott wouldn't get up.

I was skeptical off no footy, but he was solid enough & had some good moments.

Looked utterly f’ed at points throughout the game yesterday though, theres plenty to come fitness-wise.

He wasn't anywhere near fit.
Had some nice moments but we carried him physically.
The effort where the ball slowly got away from him on the wing when he was in open space and we were out showed he is still off the pace.

I watched the game again yesterday and I'm only speculating here but it seemed to me that he was expecting the ball to sit up as quite often happens with a rolling oval ball but it didn't. I don't think it was a matter of him being too tired to chase it.

He looked like he was running in sand.

His judgement and touch first up was amazing. Second up is often the challenge so this week will be interesting.

Had 1 tackle and I'm guessing one of the lowest amount of pressure acts on the ground.

It was a damn risky selection.
