I liked his game last night.
The one thing that stood out to me is his composure with the footy. Not to mention he is a beautiful kick.
He will be a goood player for this club for a long time imo.

With potentially Grigg and Houli finishing up in the next year or so, he just needs to keep working hard and there will be a regular spot for him.

Thing is, whilst Grigg isnít nearly as good a user as Ellis, he can gut run and is quick enough for AFL, Ellis struggles to make the grade.

Promising showing last night, but heís had plenty of those so far. Needs to establish himself, throw his body around a bit. Sometimes all it takes is laying a strong tackle or barging through a contest to help a player realise they can play the game.

Thought he was OK

Reckon he will hold his spot but needs to get himself more involved

IMO will only hold his spot through other injuries. I don't understand this guy. Great skills, performs well at VFL but seems to completely go into his shell at AFL. Maybe that's just his role off half back, I don't know. One of the most vanilla players I have seen in a long time.

Still far from convinced but considering he was basically playing Broad's role -which he couldn't be less suited to- while Broad was playing Vlastuin's role, I thought he did pretty well....still needs to be played in the guts to have fighting chance of making it at AFL level though... :shh

Hopefully with Graham coming out of the side due to injury frees up Ellis for a string of anywhere between 3 to 5 games and we then know if he is ready for September action or not.
I love the kid, love the way he dominates in VFL but I think it's time we try and persist with him or make a call.
Like most, I'm not sure he's up to it or not.

Me too. I had high hopes but heís clearly too soft. And what happened to his foot skills? Did he leave them in Melbourne? Maybe heís just soooo timid he canít even complete a basic skill.

I think itís obvious now...........

........never recruit any player with the surname Ellis.

It was the end when he kicked it OOTF in the 4th.

Hopefully donít see him in the senior side again. Never understood why so many hold hope for him to make it. Heís slow af and timid. Not the type you want next to you when the whips are cracking as yesterday clearly showed. Did the same thing down at Geelong last year
