“We recruited Jordy with leadership in mind, when you do your due diligence on players we watched a hell of a lot of his footy, and you could see it sitting behind the goals and watching the way he goes about his footy.
“He’s one of those players that impacts the game when you need someone to impact the game… He’s a very, very good on-field leader.”
