Will be interesting to see if De Goey will take this midfield role into next season, if he does then there is a lot of value there. Could also be a Dustin Martin type of finals specialist though.
Has his role actually changed much? Feels like hes played that role for 18 months and just picks and chooses when he turns up, super player at his best though just need to see it consistently.

Yeh looking at his cbas they havent really deviated. Surprising because he's been very prominent in these last two games.
In the back half of 2021 he wasn't winning a lot of contested possesions and tackling much, he was picking up alot of uncontested and cheap possesions

Id be interested to see his mid/fwd split, might just not be watching close enough but reckon hed be borderline to be mid only from where he's played this year.

BRISBANE has recalled some tall timber for its preliminary final against Geelong, with Joe Daniher and Oscar McInerney back into Chris ***an's 22 for Friday night's battle at the MCG.
The Lions are the only team to make changes for preliminary final weekend, with the Cats, Sydney and Collingwood all sticking with their most recent 22.
ALL THE TEAMS Check 'em out
Daniher
is back after missing last week's semi-final win against Melbourne to dash home to Brisbane for the birth of his first child on game day.
McInerney missed the triumph over the Demons as he served the League's 12-day concussion protocol after a heavy hit in the opening minutes of the Lions' elimination final win over Richmond.

Brisbane has resisted the urge to make any other changes, sticking with a fleet-footed team that includes two-game defender Darcy Wilmot and tough third-year midfielder Deven Robertson.
Darcy Fort and Tom Fullarton are the players to drop out.
Chris Scott has stuck with the team that defeated Collingwood almost two weeks ago, with defender Jake Kolodjashnij being named despite injuring his knee against the Magpies.
MEGA-PREVIEW Cats v Lions, stats that matter, who wins and why
There was no room for the unlucky Brandan Parfitt.
Like the Cats, Sydney is going with the same team that won its qualifying final against Melbourne, retaining young forward Logan McDonald in their side.
MEGA-PREVIEW Swans v Magpies, stats that matter, who wins and why
Coach John Longmire was noncommittal when asked last week about whether McDonald would hold his spot, saying his forward structure would depend on conditions and the opposition.
Collingwood is also unchanged from the team that cruised past Fremantle, sticking with Trent Bianco after he came in against the Dockers to replace Taylor Adams.
