Just found out something really cool today
my wife works with a lady who is dating Joshua's Brother. SHe said to my wife that the dogs were looking at Joshua a few weeks back
Pretty awesome ey !
Music to my ears.
[BertNewtonVoice] I like the boy.[/BertNewtonVoice]
Seems like a really nice bloke.
Seems like a good kid, nice interview.
On another note, I'm ******* sick of Atherston.
Seems like a great bloke and a great pickup.
Credit to Simon Darylmple for finding him. Apparently we were the only club to have any interest, no doubt due to Scotty Wynd. All the best!
I had a chat to one of his best friends on Sunday, rated him highly, said he was the captain of Assumption College, and lead them to a premiership. Rated him as the nicest bloke you could ever meet, and very decent. Still working at the local Target, don't know for how much longer
Really like the look of this kid, anyone else think he might play down back?
Interviews well. Nice old man personality if you know what I mean. Think he has leadership potential.
Looks like a neat kick and good one on one. I had the same thoughts about playing down back"
same - wondered if he might pick up a playmaker role off half back
Lets not give credit to anyone until such time as the kid looks likely to be a 100+ gamer for us.
For mine he looks like a Picken replacement/clone- Hard -= not particulary polished but someone to get the job done.
Recruiting is an amazing thing at times - this kid doesnt have 1 other club talk to him, has played no real rep footy, yet gets drafted in the 50's. A guy like Cohlouqhon (sorry spelling terrible I know) from SA makes the all Australian TAC cup team averaging 28 touches and 6 marks (with skills likened to Gilbee) and doesn't get a look in.
Thats not a slight on our recruiters given all clubs bypassed him - just dont know how that happens unless there is off field matters costing the kid form SA.
How would you pronounce Cohloughon?
I think no recruiter was game to say the name. Is it Colon, Kolowan or like Cologone.
I heard there are doubts about his contested game. But I think his name is the biggest problem.
His name's Colquhoun, and I believe it's just Kol-coon.
Yep, but sometimes I've heard it pronounces colk - hoon. With the H pronounced.
Yeah, I think it's Colk-hoon
I thought it was pronounced like Kolkahorn. Maybe they didn't want to be racist? I guess it didn't hurt Cooney.
Hopefully Prudden can play 3-8 games next year, backing that most would be off the back flank.
I'm not giving credit for any success, I'm merely giving credit to the recruiting team for being the only one too look at him. He also obviously fits the ethos that the club is trying to promote, the "quality people" thing. But yes, I do get what you're trying to say. Maybe I made my point too strongly.
It's a Scottish name. I was told a long time ago by someone with that name that it's pronounced Co-HEWN ... with the emphasis on the second syllable. I've also heard Col-hewn or Col-hown. Definitely not Colk-hewn or Colkwoon.
Anyway unless we draft him let's not worry. I'm still trying to get the phlegm out of my throat with "Chrovat".
Was an article in the local paper about Josh, which I scanned, but the file is too big to upload.
His father was in that fatal truck accident near the border the day of the draft, he wasn't killed but the driver he was with was. Strange day for Prudden.
