STRENGTHS: Spread, clean hands, core strength, outside game
IMPROVEMENTS: Inside game, athleticism
SUMMARY: Jamie Plumridge is a winger who works hard on the outside to win the ball and then dispose of it either through a chain of handballs or a long bomb inside 50. One of the more noticeable traits Plumridge has, is his ability to stand up in tackles and get his hands free to dispose of the football without being brought to ground. This is very important considering he is not an athlete – 3.26 seconds in the 20m sprint and 9.16 seconds in the agility test at the State Combine – because it means he can get rid of the ball under pressure. For someone without the athleticism of others, he still covers plenty of the ground.
