More kicks, more possessions in general, more impact on the game.  I think he is ready to become a really good player.
What since yr one? The stats say he has stagnated, if we talk purely numbers,  numbers dont lie.
I think TDY is pointing out the area where he wants him to improve, not what he has achieved.
Proud of the worst team in history to win a premiership.

He's stopped returning my calls.
“I can’t believe it, 1.20 to go, you’re three points up and there is nobody at the back end of the square for a quick kick in for the opposition.

“I just can’t believe my eyes.

“It’s poor leadership and it’s poor coaching from the Richmond Football Club.”

Hasn't materially improved since year 1 but remains a very good player. May become our next whipping boy if he doesn't meet some posters unrealistic expectations.

Thought his disposal last night was horrible and every time he had the ball I was cringing as to where the ball would end up. Not sure what is wrong with him because he always seemed confident when in possession and now its as if he has no confidence hitting a target by foot. Seems to be in Cotch mode with dinky kicks and sideways pokes just missing targets with alarming regularity.

Looked out of touch like many of his teammates. It's as if they all had the flu!

Would give him a few more chances rather than hang him on one game.

Was poor but not worried about him at all yet.......hope he gets back to the middle eventually though....he can still go back (or indeed even forward) when needed...

Yeah nah he was just poor....just because the likes of Morris, Houli & Hamspud were even worse doesn't change the fact...
