SURPRISE PACKET

Drafted after a few years developing under our noses at Casey, Fritsch was a real surprise packet who filled a number of roles but was surprisingly left out of the team for the preliminary final. Was Casey’s best in his only game - the losing Grand Final against the Box Hill Hawks.

Love him. Shouldn't have been dropped for the prelim.

Will become a quality wing/half backer.

I think him, Salem & Kolodjasnij will all rotate on the wings and half back next season.

Absolute gun.

Silk, class and also an unbelievable mark for his height.

I dont want him in defense though, plays his best footy up forward and up on a wing.

I agree. This kid is a great get. Wing or high half forward are his best positions. He can intercept but I don't think the back is his best spot.

Agreed he is very valuable closer to goal and rarely butchers the ball, great pick-up by FD.

Seriously good young player. I much prefer to see him playing half forward / wing rather than in defence, but there is no harm in developing his defensive game as well.

I still think there are issues with he and Hannan in the same forward line, and he is a long way ahead of Hannan at present.

Never could have dreamed he'd be this good in his first season. I was a fan and very keen to pick him up but what I pictured was a medium sized forward who would occasionally drift up the ground. Bailey did it all this season and his ability to plug holes as they arose only impressed me more. 

Was gutted when he was left out of the prelim side but respect the FD's decision and can see the reasoning.

With all hands on deck in 19 I would like to see more wing/forward but he certainly offers you something anywhere on the ground.

Great year from the youngster, real classy and never wastes the ball. Really unlucky to be dropped in the last game it should have been Tyson.
