“Got to love this guy. Ultimate team man and absolutely critical to the Tigers’ system. Elite two-way runner, which can often go unrewarded, but he opens space up for teammates. As always, when his turn came, he took it. Two crucial final quarter goals v Port Adelaide in the preliminary final propelled Tigers into the Grand Final. A consummate professional.”
