Yep Also most efficient disposals 22 and most score involvements 9. Not the greatest kick but that's the case for many two way hard running inside midfielders.
Yep, hows Cripps kicking? Or Danger? Or Shiel? Or Treloar etc? They are the types he is similar too. I don't think his kicking is significantly worse than those 4 anyway, similar standard.

So balanced and low to the ground and straightens us up with his clearances running straight towards our goals. Love it!

Dion's work rate this year has been sensational. Great balance of contested and uncontested possessions. A fantastic footballer and athlete. It is very disappointing that Brian Taylor feels the need to regularly refer to Dion as "meatball" in his commentating. That nickname just sounds so uncomplimentary and BT should be a lot more respectful of Dion imo.

The Taylors and Prestias are family friends, Dion is good mates with one of BTs sons so there is a fair bit of in-joke about it.

A lot of people call Prestia 'Meat' or 'Meaty'.

Now that we know more about Tom Lynch's character (seems an introvert), it is clear that a big reason he chose Richmond was his friendship with Meatball and Caddy. No doubt they would have told him about the place, and seeing his mates win a premiership would have been a factor. He forsake more money to be in a good supportive club environment.

That Pick 6 we gave up for Prestia must arguably be the best trade we have ever done (netting Caddy and Lynch).

I wonder if the club is in the ear of any other Suns players that are close to these guys.

Some may see this as sacrilege but this season Dion has catapulted himself into being our second best midfielder.
He's genuinely Blue Chip & in the frame for AA Honours.
I just love how he turns on a ten cent piece in traffic & turns players inside out. Loves the wet too. Almost never loses his feet & handles the ball magnificently.
Brilliant game again from our gourmet meatball today.
