First half review

"Robin came into the side after being elevated from the rookie list more for his forward pressure and tackling. He's been doing that but he's been able to kick goals as well.

"He's said it before, he knows he's a week-to-week proposition in terms of playing so he figures if he pressures and tackles well, the goals will come.

"That seems to be working quite well for him up to this point and he's added plenty of speed and pressure up forward."

Second half review

“Robbie was a little bit stiff in the last two finals after playing his role in the Richmond final and then losing his spot to Kayne (Turner).

“He’s someone who kicked 30 goals for the year. In terms of your small forward, if you’re getting that out of them he’s doing well.

“He pressured well in the forward line, hurried players up; really he did all he could do.”
