Capable of sustaining a ranking of 15-30
Selling points are his work ethic and tap work.
Athleticism is decent without being a standout.
Skills/decision making and mobility are about average for a ruck.
Can take a good grab overhead and provides a marking target around the ground.
Over-age player in the 2010 U18 Championships and TAC Cup
Query over versatility to play as a marking forward (I’m not convinced he is first ruck quality yet).
Overall I think he has the ability to be a solid 1st ruckman that at worst will be a handy back-up option to have in the reserves.
Needs to add another 15kg to reach his ideal playing weight, which could take 5 pre-seasons
