I have only watched him once, but I see exactly what they mean. The footy IQ he lacks is more the split second things, that natural footballers do instinctively. A natural player has an awareness of whats going on around him, knows which way to turn his body in a contest etc, its really hard to put into words, and even harder to teach. For most it comes with experience, others just never seem to be able to get it. Teaching a player where to run, and how to play a system is not what I, or others are talking about.
I have no idea if he has grown up playing footy but the way he plays it looks like he hasn’t. He looks extremely raw. But the amount of athleticism the guy has is nothing short of remarkable. We are going to have a lot of fun watching this guy develop.
