Used mainly in defence with the odd move forward during the first half of the season, Reid played his best football as a permanent forward late in the year. His 25 possessions, 11 marks and three goals against Gold Coast in round 23 showed off all his attributes, but a torn hamstring a week later in the qualifying final loss to Fremantle ended his year and seriously hurt the side. The retirement of Adam Goodes should see Reid play forward from the opening round this year, where his contested marking and mobility makes him a dangerous target. Has the capability to be a 40-goal forward if he can get his set-shot kicking right.
