What makes his performances over the last 2 games outstanding are the players he has shut down, Cripps and O’Meara, both elite mids but very different in game playing style and the fact he has managed to accumulate 20+ disposals going the other way.

Let’s hope he keeps it going against Gaff or Shuey

This young man is a real keeper. It will be interesting to watch him grow into a 200 game player.

Fantastic stuff Dylan 8)

Pick 63. Not sure why he went so high. His stats in the 2016 TAC Cup were damn good...

Average disposals: 29.4
Average tackles: 7.9
Average clearances: 6.8
Contested possessions: 16.6

His 2 games so far...

Average disposals: 23.0
Average tackles: 9.0
Average clearances: 6.0
Contested possessions: 10.5

His kicking...slow ball drop, loopy short kicks.
He was expected top 20 from memory. As a junior he played against Adelaides Gallucci, Freo's North & Duman, maybe Essendons Mynott. In that league he was unstoppable. Clarke, Gallucci and another kid were always top 3. Clarke was an extractor but the other two were supreme kicks off both feet. The 3rd one plays EFL 3rd div I think?

That kick to Smack was a bullet. If he could do that more often, less of the loopy version, he'd be elite pdq I reckon.
