Outlook

Started the year in sensational fashion and was every bit the match winner. Having finished runner-up in 2015’s best and fairest playing predominantly as a midfielder, Motlop found himself deployed more forward in 2016 and whilst he hit the scoreboard regularly, the 25-year-old struggled to find consistency past the half way mark of the season.
