#22 Sam Durham - thru to 2028!

Rewatched the last quarter. He was absolutely massive and a massive reason we won the game. Even without the last goal

This bloke can seriously play and thrives on the tough stuff. Add hobbs caudwell redman and guilfy to that list and we finially have some guttsy players

More Seymour than skinner

If you haven’t done yourself a favour and rewatched the last quarter it’s well worth it. Durham is extraordinary

Just imagine with me for a moment, how good a player we have on our hands, if he plays at that last quarter level for the remainder of his long career.

I love the way he throws himself at and scoops up the loose ball in a contest and just throws in a spinny move for fun

Noticed it in a few of his early games with us. He’s very good at attacking a loose ground ball in such a way that he puts his body between the ball and an incoming opponent. Protects the ball, and puts himself in a position to win an itb free if the oppo is clumsy.

Has a very impressive vertical leap on top of all his other attributes

Love the fact that Richmond would have drafted Durham if they were picking before us and not the pick after.

Was very very good.
More importantly he’s playing a lot fewer bad/quiet games this year.

Always been a fan. Hes so dynamic across the ground. Skills can sometimes be so-so, but hes quick, a great mark, tough at the footy and offers options all over the ground.

If you were referring to my comment that wasn’t what I was alluding to.

I was there.

He Seymour of the ball than most.

Leaving aside effort he’s tidied up his technique around contests too. Used to give away too many frees for high/late.

Centre bounces beckon for this kid I think, almost seems like a waste not to use his attack at ground level where it’s most important at the coalface.

Don’t think I have ever watched wingmen like Durham and Martin who cover so much ground. Martin seemed to be everywhere in defence and in the middle and in the last quarter was everywhere winning contests.

He just reminds me of a combo of all those players.

Bit of hawker, bit of baker, bit of Nobby.

And sort of looks like Pritchard from hawthorn but it’s a fair compliment.

I’d recon clubs would have something similar in place.

It’s just that weve never thought to have anything similar ourselves.

Honestly think we have our wingers secured for the future with Durham and Martin. So young and already brilliant players. Will be elite in a few years. Very exciting.
