  • Courage
  • Powerful


  • Kicking efficiency
  • Decision making


Powell-Pepper is a powerful midfielder who loves to win plenty of contested ball.

He will throw himself into the contest without any regard for his safety.

He also has explosive pace and has great endurance. However, his kicking can let him down, as he often blazes and can turn the ball over. He plays with immense passion and enthusiasm, but that can also be his undoing at times, resulting in rushed, inaccurate disposal.

However, his disposal has steadily improved as the year has progressed and his contested ball work, plus his pace and endurance will be enough to see him snapped up in the early second round.

Powell-Pepper played off half back in 2015, however, moved into the midfield and even spent some time in the forward line this season.
