Matty White [merged]

How do you think Matty White has gone in the past few weeks? While other yongsters are getting all the attention lol he seems to be slowly finding his feet at senior level across half-back.

great pick up in the pre-season draft

terrific pace with a bit of mongrel

looks to play a little like mathew robbins

A key part of the future that will release raines to the midfield next year.

Decision making is poor at this stage of the proceedings, 12 months to fix it or as Andy D likes to say...I think he's in strife ;D

Are things starting to click for Whitey?

He's starting to have impact on games using his pace to advantage when he gets his hands on the ball.

Thought he was very good today - gives a run but also has a very good defensive side to his game.

Showed some marts too in the last with that pass to Brown - could have blazed away but didn't

Matty is showing some very good signs over the past 2 weeks. Looks like he's been taking some lessons from Foley.

Must admit i'm not Whitey's biggest fan but he has been playing some good footy lately. Not only for the seniors but also for the Burgers.

Agree Bluey we are watching the same game, to me he has shown strength & brushes off tackles more easy & seems to have a little extra pace.
His skills & goal kicking have improved, His the type of player we need to get more games into. With more confidence l see a very good player who will serve us well in the midfield going forward  :thumbsup

Pretty sure he or his father, the only poster I go to PRE for, already stated something along the lines of he's Foley's "buddy" and is modelling himself on him.  Two Foley's would be nice bursting out of the centre square.  :pray

"Rimau Junior" is Matt's dad. If he says that's what he is doing then I'm pretty confident he is. It is showing. Keep it up Matty.

Yet another positive Nathan is having on the club.  :thumbsup

Off topic - but this just shows me yet again that Foley must be our next captain
