Ciley Myrus

I came in like a wrecking ball?
He certainly likes to be part of the game, I do think he shows he is rattled a bit too much in overly psychical games, but overall he is still one of the best in the country and his fitness/body shape is a credit to himself. Never scared to do something unpopular and I hope he is around for a few seasons yet.
