    I think we've done very very well this offseason considering the "flippers" that pitched our way. ;)

    Quite like the look of colledge. As a third mobile tall behind Kennedy and darling he could be pretty effective

    Realistically who looks most likely to get the call this year, Fraser, Colledge or McMuffin?

    Personally i'd rate it as:

    McInnes, Lycett, Colledge/McGovern, Tunbridge

    Don't forget he is the same age as Stevens and younger than Swift, and he's shit all over them for output at WAFL level. :p

    And yep, his skills are average but not atrocious from what I can see. A 2.83 is very quick over 20m, and a phenomonal increase from his previous 3.10.

    Colledge and McInnes.

    Rookies won't play and Lycett won't play unless we lose a ruck or he starts to dominate.

    We've played him as a key forward before though

    If he didn't really feature as a forward last year with Kennedy, LeCras and Nicoski out of the forward line, I'd imagine that we wouldn't see him there this year in all likelihood.

    Lycett - twice during the year - knee , missed probably 12 weeks all up

    Adam Carter was a promising fast baller in the Aust junior 16s team but went footy after suffering bowling related stress fractures in his back , also suffered Swine Flu in a cricket tour to Deli and spent a week in isolation in a Hospital in a paddock . Looks a good get Carter for WCE especially as we were interested in Carter as a Mini draft pick last year ( it was runoured we were talking to him last year , re mini draft ) . Pick 59 is good .

    Actually I would like to see us adopt a Geelong like policy and give Lycett a game or three so as to rest Natanui and Cox during the regular season.

    Our recruiting guys have gone back to their bread and butter this year taking high character guys.

    2 under 18s captains and a law student. Not bad.

    NN's best-case scenario is to be ready for round1, i.e. there's a fair chance Lycett will play round 1.

    I think Fraser too. Watching his NAB and his televised WAFL games I noticed he just keeps leading over and over, great work-rate. If his Perth teammates had any idea how to deliver a ball he'd have kicked a lot more goals. Can take a mark on the lead, in a pack, or one out and is good on the ground.

    No contest Fraser>>>>Colledge/McGovern.

    Three different players really.

    At the moment none of them are kicking enough goals.

    ^ Correct me if I'm wrong I think Fraser had some dominant aerial games but struggled to convert... Would that be fair to say?

    Not unless he's kicking them out on the full.

    He's strongest pack mark of the three, but gets the least marks of the lot. Which suggests he's playing a little deeper than the other two and Perth can get the ball to him.

    Yeah, that's what I meant (The shanking of goal shots).

    Thanks for the figures too, kane249.

    It would be interesting to see a comparison between McGovern and Fraser based on the amount of forward 50 delivery that each received.
