Had a massive finals series and was probably Sydney's second best player after JPK. I think he is undervalued by many because he doesn't present as an athletic and gifted player. I reckon he's worth a top 10 pick.
Yeah it’s funny how when his name was first floated on here people were rubbishing him or didn’t see the value he’d bring to a new club. They’ve gone a bit quiet oddly enough. I’m not sure they’d actually seen much of him.
Doesn’t stop most people here…if they fluff one kick in their first 3 games, they’re tagged as having crap disposal for the rest of their career.
Unless they want to come to us, of course, having played 4 games over 3 years and had bugger-all touches. Then they’re superstars and we have to get them even though we have plenty of depth in that position.
If I recall, Mitchell got about 75 touches in his first game in the wet…against us.
I thought so too, but he only had 18 and kicked a goal. Had 37 touches this year though…
If memory serves, he may have only had 18 but pretty sure it was in a bit over a quarter as the sub? Could be totally wrong…
You are correct - good call.
