He did a lot of little things to contribute to goals. Competes well, big improvement

His kick to Cumbo was superb. Long, hard, flat - got it in quick and allowed Cumbo to run onto it instead of having to stop, prop and either come under pressure to mark or face a knee-trembler from 30. Gave the defender no chance.

Still think he lacks confidence on how good he might be.

A touch apprehensive.

If he had Nank's or Jack's or even Cumbo's mindset he'd lift his output 50% ILO.

Playing well and contributing around the ground. Like how he has a knack of getting a tap and knock on in the heat of a contest to a team mates advantage. Reckon he's got a high ceiling.

He is looking to be very involved with the ball on the grass. Very encouraging signs

Well we have had some nice surprises this year

Miller - Always was a slow burn
Sonsie - Just a beauty
Gibcus - Future star once physically developed
Cumberland - Great impact in such a short time
MRj - Only 19 and will be something special in 2 years time
Ralphsmith - Played some good games and certainly has what it takes 200 gamer
D.Rioli - Wow just Wow Bachar replaced with a bonus

I prefer him in the role he is playing now to the key defender role. Normally players find a defensive role easier but he appears better up the ground and in the play. He did some great little things, tap ons, punches etc that contributed to the ball going our way. And he's a good field kick.

Could he be our Luke Jackson?

With the Lions lack of tall defenders, I expect Miller to have the game of his life tonight. Miller is hardly mentioned, he's not one of the big names, and when Fages goes looking at the stats sheet, Miller won't be that prominent.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing but Ben should have been playing first ruck tonight. Nanks is good around the ground but has lost his mojo rucking

Yep staggered he didn’t get more game time in there. Always looked more dangerous with Ben rucking .

we dominated the Ruck yet we hit it to Neale's advantage. we should have been hitting the ball 15m forward every contest. nullify Neale.
