“Kyle has been in our best for two games in a row. He has adapted well to the speed of Prems footy. He has played forward and in the midfield. His strong attack on the ball and skill execution have been highlights of his recent games. Kyle trains hard and is always looking for opportunities to improve his game.” Damian Truslove
