The TSL's new gun tagger says he's happy to continue the role for as long as it's asked of him.
Launceston draft hopeful Jared Dakin has been sent to two of the State League's biggest names in the past fortnight, helping the Blues march to a 3-0 start.
The Tassie Devils 2019 co-captain first kept Northern Bombers coach Taylor Whitford to nine touches while gathering 13 himself, before backing it up last weekend with a 19-disposal effort against Tigers star Kieran Lovell (14 touches).
"It's been good," the 19-year-old said.
"I've obviously had a lot of support from the blokes around me and a lot of faith put in me to do that role which helps a lot, but my teammates have been really good helping me with that.
"Thorpy [coach Mitch Thorp] often tells me pretty late on in the week so I don't really have that much time to think about it which is probably a good thing.
"I suppose there's a little bit of extra nerves, but I'm normally pretty nervous before a game anyway so nothing really changes."
Sam Siggins, Nat Franklin and Bryce Walsh loom as possible match-ups should Dakin again be employed as a run-with midfielder when the Blues welcome 2-1 Lauderdale to Windsor Park on Saturday.
"I'm unsure - I imagine if I keep doing a good job I might get a couple more gigs but I suppose I'll just have to wait and see," Dakin said.
"If it helps the team win I'm more than willing to do it - I wouldn't say I overly enjoy it, but if I've got to do it I've got to do it and there's nothing wrong with that."
