Not a great year, I gave him a 6. If he'd kicked better in front of goal I'd be much happier. Probably our worst set shot out of the whole list.

If he'd converted another handful of goals I'd be thrilled.

That said, he's surprisingly aerial for a bloke his size and is often a decent marking option in the absence of a second tall. Doubled his tackling numbers which is great too.

If he could stick his marks and kick his goals he'd just about be the best small forward in the business

I gave him a five mainly due to some games where he was very quiet. Should be overtaken by Bolton some stage soon as think his mate, Butler, has him covered for class.
Proud of the worst team in history to win a premiership.

If he could finish then would just about be our best small forward. His pressure is elite and he can take a good contested mark.

Hope he doesn't do a Lloyd and go from great year to almost trade-bait average.

Kicked a goal in the qualifying final . Kicked another in the grand final.  Underrated.
