He almost does great things as MH said. Pity he just can't go that step further. He has played some very useful games for us this season, especially early in the season. Some of those early games he was having to pick up Goodsie's man as well as his own because he was so badly out of sorts. He will either come good or be another Jesse.
    Re watch yesterday game and tell me he is up to the level.
    Cheers

    He didn't play NEAFL yesterday.

    I don't think anyone was disagreeing with your suggestion Towers has done nothing yet to suggest he's of AFL standard, but your comment he wasn't up to NEAFL standard was clearly off the mark. Lots of players are excellent at NEAFL (or WAFL or VFL) level but can't make the step up.

    Spot on Liz. Yesterday again there were glimpses of what Towers can do, but he just hasn't been able to step up as some of us have hoped he would to the top grade so far. I don't think he is top 22 with everyone fit and firing, but he is on the cusp. And he certainly has turned in some excellent NEAFL performances so far this season.
