Bangers Says - Tony Bamford assessment of Mattaes Phillipou

”He’s an ultra-professional, very driven young man.

”He’s your prototype AFL midfielder. He’s 192cm and still growing so he will probably get up to 194cm.

”He can mark it, take the ball at stoppage, accept the tackle and still get the ball off, shake a tackle and still spread.

”Ground level hands are very clean, he kicks the ball beautifully. He can sneak forward and take marks.

”He’s pretty much what every AFL club is looking for, based on what (Patty) Cripps and (Marcus) Bontempelli are doing at the level at the moment.

”His biggest challenge, when he gets into the AFL system, will be (having) patience because he’s so driven and he wants to be the best player tomorrow.

”He just needs to chill.”
