He’s a second year, is it surprising?
Hartley was in the VFL on Collingwood’s rookie list at that age, Ambrose was playing park footy, Hooker was in the VFL, Stewart was miles off it, Daniher was super inconsistent.
Hurley types - key position talls ready to go out of the draft - are freaks.
Francis has the size, he’s got the body strength, he’s got explosiveness and agility. He reads it well overhead, has good skills, and he beats most talls once it hits the ground. He certainly isn’t fit enough, yet, but it sounds like he’s getting much closer. I don’t see why he can’t become a KP and a very good one at that.
