 Player Information
  Naitanui is a player with incredible potential - speed, agility and an incredible leap make him, when on form, one of the most lethal players in the competition. From his first few games Nic Nat has stood out as being capable of almost anything. Still young (particularly for a tall player), he looks quite green and like he's got a huge amount yet to learn in a footy context.

There may be a question as yet about his ability to hold a mark (though some of the marks he does take are incredible!), and he's not overly confident with his kicking. But to counter that, his ruckwork is already moving up to elite standard, while his run and tackle and ability to collect the ball are amazing. You can easily see him being one of the players everyone's in awe of in a few years time.
