Like 'Boot, my knock on him was he took slow to completely new levels. I'm not sure what happened last week but he really made huge ground on a few occasions to get a fist in and with those run downs.
I'm gonna go with he must have improved in that area, cos if he hasn't and people are rating him as slow based on the last couple of games i'd hate to think what under their breath they think of our current midfields speed, cos he'd put most of them to shame in a 100 meter sprint.
Again that's said on the assumption he's improved dramatically on peoples opinions of his pace prior to the last couple of weeks.
I'd rookie him this year at the very least. would make it easier to pick him up in a year or two If he was to continue on his improvement. No good building him up to a decent player than running the gauntlet of the ND and some other team picking him up.
Besides if they can keep Jackson merrett on the main list to keep Zac happy, the least they can do is offer hepps brother a rookie list spot.
