“Knows nothing but winning, does ‘Broady’. Part of a very well-organised defensive group. Ever reliable and, like Dylan Grimes, can play on opponents of various sizes. Courageous in the air and extremely efficient at ground level. Showed great maturity when he went out of the team for three games. Comes back in, doesn’t miss a beat, and collects a third premiership medal.”
