Bangers Says - Tony Bamford's assessment of Billy Dowling

”He’s a ball-magnet Billy. He’s always been that way, he’s never had any trouble finding the footy.

”He turns up at contest after contest so he is a good midfielder who gets up and down the ground.

”Some midfielders, you will find they will only win the ball between the arcs but Billy wins the ball in the D50 and the Forward 50 which is proof he gets up and down the ground.

”For a guy who is pushing close to 190cm (tall) now, to be winning the ball at ground level often is a good sign.

”He’s a smart player who will guarantee you 25 possessions and 12 of those will be contested and five or six of those will be inside 50s. He will turn the numbers over really well.”
