    Very interested by this kid, I do like the looks of him I must say. We obviously were keen on him and I'm glad to see we got who we wanted!

    Prudden was coached by Scott Wynd - reckon he must've slipped a few good words to us about young Josh. ;)

    He was a bit shocked at first, said he didn't think he was that good, remembered he had actually played against him a couple of years ago (I thought he only played against his older brother), but my son is a couple of years older so Prudden would have been bottom age anyway. Believes he obviously improved going to Assumption College, he mentioned he is a freak at fitness goes to the gym every day, very focussed (sounds like Crossy).

    He comes from a really hard working battler family, so really thrilled for them all, his dad used to work at the local petrol station doing the grave yard shift, and then would be down at junior footy first thing next day as the runner for the team. His older Brother has a slight intellectual disability, but is also such a good kid, ironically he nearly drowned in the Goulburn river a couple of years ago, and my other son pulled him out, saved his life, everyone there thought he was just mucking about:eek:
    This kid would meet Macca's 'good person' ruling without a doubt, he isn't your silver spoon type, and would really appreciate the opportunity he has been given.

    No worries Ant, delete if you think it is a bit too personal to be on BF.

    I wouldn't call it to personal. I think it was a very good read, so thanks for sharing. Sounds like a good kid, and he has obviously worked hard for this. I love it when people come from the battling family background, to achieve their dreams. Looking forward to seeing his development.

    Okay I'm sold. When someone has to work hard for opportunity they usually grab it with both hands.

    From the D&T board:
    Sounds like another kid absolutely aced the "quality person" test B-Mac favours.
    We're going to have a super-hard training team in 2013.
