When Myers comes in to protect him, the kid will amass disposals and clearances. He, not Shiel might be the one to attract a tagger.
From the AFL Site:
It’s been floated that the new 6-6-6 rules will benefit explosive midfielders who can get extra penetration and distance from their clearances. Should that be the case, McGrath is built in the perfect mould. Having drifted both across half-back and on a wing in his first two seasons, the former No.1 draft pick seems destined to become a full-time centre-square player in 2019. He played the entirety of Thursday night’s game out of the middle, where his breakaway speed was influential. He won 25 disposals and kicked two classy goals in the final quarter, while his ability to sidestep out of trouble and hurt opponents with his turn of speed was evident throughout. - Riley Beveridge
