This guy is one of my favourites.im bullish about him.
But what I don’t get is people thinking this year is a missed opportunity and he should be in the AFL etc etc.
In our seniors he would not have developed the capacity to dominate games through the middle. He has been racking up big numbers in the middle in the VFL. He needs to build “ball pig” skills so he has the confidence to use his body when he makes the leap up again.
25-30 possession 5 clearance, 5 tackle games in the VFL are far more beneficial for him than 14 possession 1.1 games off half fwd in the AFL.
This is a great long term strategy and I’d he is made of the right stuff it will make him determined to dominate through the middle in upcoming years because he has all the tools.
