In the Champion Data 2017 prospectus, they commented that Conor was an under-rated defender; apparently in 2016 he did not lose (any) one on one contests.
Well he has taken this further. He is now winning one on one contests, which lead to goal assists.
The best example of this vs Port is where he taps the ball forward in a contest, on the HBF runs onto it, runs with it and delivers inside 50
Its pretty clear they were watching him very closely because they said he did not zone off, and remained a one on one defender.. Well get this , champion data! Last year that was a luxury we could not afford.
I hope he can back it up over the next 12 weeks because he just adds a new dimension to our team.
Thanks for believing, Harves and Woosh.
