If only Bolton didn't fade out of the game at times he would be an AA. Has the talent in spades

Agree, but he should probably be AA anyway. He's probably the best HF in the competition atm. However, he can probably be the best player in the competition if he wants it.

Came up with a classic yesterday at the G with my two buddies. One Tiger and one Pie.
When Bolts slotted that long goal I turned to them and said:

You know the Ad,
Did someone say, KFC?

"Did someone Shai, RFC?"
Even the Pies bloke liked it.
What a great day.

Attended 15 centre bounces yesterday. He’s playing as a centre square mid, using him where he is most dangerous.

The 6-6-6 make blokes like Shai so dangerous, a shimmy and a step and he’s 60 out. And that’s his range on the run.

Bucks today rolled out that Collingwood intended to take him with the very next pick.

One on one in forward 50, he’s a nightmare. So smart. Then goes into the centre square and dances.

Watching him do things you think can’t happen is so much fun. Thank you Ty Vickery!

Yep. Collingwobbles always pull that line out.

The reason why we got out of jail in the second quarter. He was ridiculously good.

Yep, this is what I've been looking for. He's had games where he's got more of the ball or kicked more goals, but he asserted himself in the 2nd and wrenched control back for us. There aren't many players who can do that.

Yeh he turned it back our way. He is mesmerising to watch live. I Thought he was clearly our best for sheer influence. Robbed of an extra goal with the sling call on Jack. All the Hawks supporters around me were gushing in their praise of him. Many compared him to Cyril. I said Cyril didn’t go into the guts and clear the ball like Bolton.
He can have the occasional baffling miss but he just makes things happen.

Players that can turn a game upside down n inside out with a burst of sublime footy, absolutely priceless.

Absolutely turned the game around in the 2nd. Thank he had 13 disposals. Only 7 for the 3 others unfortunately. I do think he:a a bit inconsistent but that's what he is, an explosive player.

Rating players on skill and courage since 2017, when he arrived. I’d have him at 2 behind Dusty and in front of Trent, Alex Rance, Dion, Jack and Tom.
He is absolutely top echelon.
