Witts plays down praise

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

JAR­ROD Witts ( left) is happy with his form in his first year at the Suns but isn’t buy­ing into talk he is the sur­prise packet of the sea­son.

Witts has been one of the most con­sis­tent per­form­ers all sea­son for the Suns and earned the praise of his coach Rod­ney Eade for be­ing the one shin­ing light in the poor show­ing against Syd­ney at the SCG on Satur­day.

Eade claims Witts is one of the best ruck­men in the com­pe­ti­tion and has been un­der­rated by the public.

Witts, a for­mer Mag­pie, puts his form down to the new ruck rules and greater op­por­tu­nity.

“I knew I could play at this level, I just needed to get some con­ti­nu­ity and build from there,” he said.

“I feel like I have had a solid year but I have a long way to go.”
