First year player Tom Powell did see decent usage in 2021, he was used at centre bounces in each of his first 14 games.
That equated to a usage rate of 18.0% across the season & 29.7% of games he played in (14).
Expect to see the centre bounce usage increase for Powell as he develops into an inside midfield role.
Will Phillips was used at 26.0% of team centre bounces from the 14 games he played, he should also see growth in his role through the middle of the ground.
Jaidyn Stephenson was used at 11.3% of centre bounces across the 2021 season.
