The lad simply lacks awareness on the field and composure.

He gets caught a lot with the footy, but he snatches at the ball when its on the deck so is often fumbly below his knees.

When he's on the move and gets clean possession via hand or favorable bounce he's off to the races and is a very good shot at goal.

Has some deficiencies to iron out but he's a kid with a dozen or so games under his belt.

I think he will make way for George next week. They wont leave George out too long. Dimma is very loyal to his Premiership Players.

Can't really fault Hugo tonight due to so many of our players having absolute mares

I'm of the opinion he has to keep playing. That run and carry and his kicking is usually pretty good.

Yep, we have to stick fat with him, he just needs to refine his disposal a bit.

This was the knock on Alex Rance in his early years. He's like a wild colt that needs some refinement but we need his run and desire for the contest. A number of players were guilty of turnovers or losing contests tonight because they had no room to move in our fwd half due to the Port flood and dewy conditions. I just hope the team as a whole can keep on putting a winning score on the board until we get through these outdoor night games in the middle of winter...at least it wasn't raining.

Reckon we need to keep playing Hugo with Kmac and Pickett as our 3 rotating wingers, Ross may get anther look in. I thought Hugo was ok and wasn't on his lonessome tonight with some pretty poor ball use. I reckon Banks may also get a crack at the 3rd wing role before the end of the year.

He was horrible in a number of encouraging ways.

I'd say get the boy some Grippo but god knows where his kicks would go then.

He’s the new, young, smaller version of Kaps McIntosh. Runs hard all game long, good here … not so good there…competitive.

He’ll stay on the list for a while yet, unlike one or two others in his age bracket.

This.
Took Kamdyn a while. And last night he was one of the few that could hit a target.
Persevere. The kid has game.

Had a little horror patch where he was dashing through the middle to turn it over with his kick. Then gave away 50 which resulted in a goal straight afterwards. Still kept plugging away though.
