I don't think it unreasonable to be disappointed that Francis is unable to present himself in shape to be an AFL footballer.
But it is what it is and now we need to be patient and it'll prob take another 3-4 years before he is able to consistently display his wares rather than glimpses. I get the feeling he will be one of those two steps forward, one backwards as he will inevitably suffer niggles due to his condition.
Easy for me to say though - I'd kill to have his rig (minus the ginger bits)
He looks like to have an AFL footballers shape to me, and anyone who hasn't seen the transformation from last year to this year in his body needs glasses.
We are so used to players like heppell and parish and zerrett playing from year 1 and never missing a game that we have become impatient now.
Daniher only played 6 or so games in his debut season, Francis isn't that far off, he's big he's strong and he will take time. I would reserve any dissapointment or judgement until at least end of his second season.
Carlisles transition took a lot of time as well.
KPP take longer.
