    Rating our list 2020 Mitch Wallis 3

    Were nearly done and are down to the final two so as we continue evaluating each player on our list starting with the highest number Lin Jong down to Matthew Suckling.
    The poll will run for a week and when your post in the poll if you can give a reason on your thoughts so we can share your insights.
    At the end we'll see how our list looks in the eyes of WOOF members.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Re: Rating our list 2020 Mitch Wallis 3

    A few stats:
    Age : 28
    Height: 186cm
    Weight: 85Kg
    Games: 151

    Predominantly playing as an inside midfielder early on in his career, Wallis has also excelled when given a number of run-with assignments. The father-son recruit was already a true professional the day he walked into the kennel, and when he faced some challenges in his young career, Wallis worked extremely hard to overcome them. So much so, Wallis has become one of the team's most important members, after successfully adjusting to a defensive midfield role, where he has claimed some of the games' biggest scalps.

    Given Mitch's limitations, mainly leg speed, he has done very well in his 150 games. He is a very tough competitor and gives his all for the RWB. Many have said he was not best 22, but he proved again in 2020, that he is.

    I think he should be vice captain as he has leadership qualities.

    Thanks H60, Wallis reinvented himself in 2020 and as a result we got an effective forward who kicked 25 goals from his 18 games
    I think this is now the position for him for the balance of his career and if he can keep the scoreboard ticking over he can maintain his spot in our best 22

    Liked him one out at times, good year forward and has proven he can adapt.

    Hoping another solid year from Wally.

    Mitch is the category of more character than talent.
    Can snag a goal, negate someone, mark and kick but not run quickly. Would Greg Williams do any good nowadays?
    At the moment Mitch is our best bet as small forward but going forward, we will surely have better alternatives.

    A bloke that does as much for us off the field as he does on it! An all around champion of a bloke with a good work ethic.

    More importantly I think he finally found a role he could call his own - at least since the injury in 2016 when he dominated the inside mid role but he lost it now.

    Decent overhead, good kick for goal, great competitor when the ball comes to ground 1 on 1. He has everything but speed to be a dynamic forward. Iím hoping he can kick 35+ goals this year!

    Given how congested football can be, slow natural footballers still have a place in the game.

    Not doubting the integrity and leadership of Wallis, but in how many of the other 2020 top 8 sides' forward lines would he definitely get a gig in?

    Wally is a very careful kick for goal. I love his intensity. He cares.

    Good to see Wallis rewarded with the Vice Captaincy. Ripping clubman, gives his all.

    No brainer that one. Congrats to Mitch !

    Edit : We've done away with leadership groups too. Personally I never saw the sense in them so ok with that.
