He's powerful and built low to the ground.

Slower turning circle.

Straight up the middle is his best go IMO.

In your head, rent free
Hope I'm wrong but I just have this feeling he's going to disappoint.
i dont see why he would, he was our best forward in 2021 and had some real good games for us before getting injured

i think he will spend the first part of the season with newtown to get some legs under him but wont be long before he is back in the team

Long shot, but **** I hope this guy can become our Reuben Cotter.
Isn't Cam McInnes out Reuben Cotter... or do you mean "bloke who showed a bit, but kept getting injured, then finally got injury free and killed it"?

Top 3 imo. Usage matters. He was very good when playing 35-45 minutes, but bad if used more than that. Definitely belongs in the top 17 when healthy and back to form.

Yeah the second one, particularly the getting injured part...

I guess Cam kinda already is. I mean "mobile middle forward who punches well above his weight and makes a significant impact towards winning the ruck for his team". Cam definitely does that, but no harm in wanting Jack to do that too.

I thought Jack Williams was our best forward in 2021, it makes sense to give him a good chance to get back to that form again. He made a big difference for us from the bench and plays with aggression.

If he was being played for more than 45 mins and/or not as a middle then the coach was either forced to cover for another injured player or made a misjudgment on how to best use Jack, we didn't really have any good consistent forward performances other than him. Our other forwards were crap alot of the time actually especially when it came to defense, discpline and handling

Jack might look like he should be a wrestler but he put it all together last season and really showed his worth and value to the team. Just keep the framework the same and he can hopefully perform at that level again.

First bit I agree with/ What I mean though is that he was great in his specific role.

On the second bit, I'd say that There were other players who didn't have the same impact as Williams, but played a different role and did as good or a better job at it (e.g. Tolman, Woods).
