Former Richmond coach Danny Frawley has labelled Geelong defender Mark Blicavs as the most improved player in the competition for his position.
Blicavs began his career as a ruckman while spending some time as a forward, and is renowned for his running ability and endurance.
In 2018, Chris Scott has opted to play Blicavs as a key defender and it has done wonders for his game.
Blicavs is in career best form as a defender, averaging 15 touches and 4 marks per game, and is part of a Geelong defense that leads the league in points allowed, conceding an average of just 69.6 points per game.
Frawley on SEN Breakfast stated that he believes Blicavs has been the most improved player in his position.
“Blicavs is probably in my opinion, the most improved player in the competition for the position he plays,” said Frawley.
“I reckon no one at the start of the year would have thought he’s going to be a lockdown defender and give run.
“I think he’s the most improved player in a position in the competition, I’ve got no doubt in that.”
