Preferred foot: Right
Role: Linking midfielder
Potential: 6-7.5/10


> Well built

> Lacks pace off the mark, but better over distance (1.90s for back 15m)
> Poor engine
> Lacks hurt factor
> Lacks versatility

> Very good junior rower – shows in his upper body shape/physical development


Allwright is as his name suggests, alright – not great, not terrible just a satisfactory vanilla prospect. He’ll never be the star of the show and if he was 5cm shorter he probably would be casted off as dime a dozen and not in contention. He’ll more than likely always be serviceable – I think it’s more likely to be at VFL rather than AFL level.
