Multicultural week in the AFL may well prove to be a blessing in disguise for the former Wyndham Vale excitement machine.
The athletic North Melbourne ruckman also kicked two blistering goals in the second term as Werribee crushed Casey with an onslaught.
Werribee coach Scott West said Daw had rapidly improved this season.
“I think he’s certainly got the capabilities. From what he’s shown this year, especially now that he pushes forward, I think he’s been able to clunk a few forward, a really nice kick. His ruck work was good,” West said.
“Confidence builds confidence and there’s no doubt having some of the guys around him and helping him with his positioning has been an added bonus.”
“The other part of his game is his ability to be able to read where the next ball is going and I think he’s been terrific in that in the last month,” he said.
Daw, who spoke about his hopes of an AFL debut this season this week, may be much closer after today as he hones in being the first AFL player of sudanese descent to play a game.
After a controversial pre-season, he has suddenly got his life on track and has been impressive on the field.
The Roos may opt to elevate him onto the senior list as soon as this week.
