STRENGTHS: kicking, clean hands, versatile, speed
IMPROVEMENTS: Strength, vertical jump

SUMMARY: Matthew McGuinness is a versatile tall who settled into the Allies defence in three of the four games during the National Under 18 Championships. He is as light as they come, weighing in at just 73kg despite standing at 193cm, which is the main area of improvement going forward – bulking up to be able to compete against the bigger-bodied forwards. His disposal is one of his strengths, with just two of his 25 kicks not hitting a target, while his hands were equally as impressive, often setting up teammates with quick handballs under pressure. McGuinness has good speed, clocking up 3.04 seconds at the Rookie Me Combine, but also recorded just the 59cm and 72cm standing and running vertical jumps respectively, which is another area of improvement.
