Richo says:

“What a season from the skilful, speedy small defender – Best and Fairest in a premiership year and runner-up in the Norm Smith Medal voting following a superb Grand Final performance! Is elite in one of the most vital statistical categories in the congested AFL game these days – metres gained. An excellent ball user by foot, with his accurate long kicks consistently bypassing opposition defenders and setting up opportunities for the Tiger forwards. Also defends well and is rarely outmarked.”
