Sorry to bother, recalled when we drafted Kavanagh that you were going to write a detailed analysis of him. Have had a search around and have not spotted where/if you ended up writing the analysis. Am very keen to learn more about him and am excited at what he can offer the club as his strengths very much appear to be ones that can potentially make him an elite player. What are your thoughts on him mate and are the injury concerns a major worry or just something to manage at this stage? Appreciate any response!
Just here to give you the heads up - in case you already didn't know - that Jesse Lonergan, Sam's newphew, won the Rising Star award given to the best young player who had the best performance in the Tasmanian State League, national under-16 or under-18 for 2011. Basically the same as the AFL Rising Star I think. Not bad for a 16 year old. The past six winners have been Tom Hislop, Grant Birchall, Tom Collier, Mitch Robinson, Ryan Harwood, and Josh Green.
Noticed you had Lonergan's name in the 2011 Draft profiles, so thought you may be interested. Cheers.
Im looking into getting into recruitment & scouting for AFL/vfl clubs in the future. Next season I'm looking to get some experience by volunteering on my weekends to get expense for the future. As someone in the business already I was hoping you would be able to point me in the right direction to what clubs would consider as good experience to become a professional recruitment. Also if you can think of any actual jobs that someone without experience in this industry would be able to apply for Id love to know (not likely i know). My current experience is in Marketing and market research.
Why doesn't the club play Myers in the centre more often when he seemingly dominates there for Bendigo? I understand that because of Pears injury we've needed another tall down back. But do you think he'll get a shot in the middle since Hurley has moved back?
I reckon that this years drafting could be perhaps up there with some of the most significant drafting in the clubs history since the inception of the drafting system. What do you think ? Do you concur with this notion?
Given where we are in our development as a team and most importantly with the advent of GC & West Syd together with the possibility of a couple of other draft assisted teams, it seems that we simply must stock pile the talent.
What do ya think ?
By the way I see Daniel Talia as a kind of Hird type able to play any where & could be a player that could swing the game in our favour. Good call to draft him. Hope your right.
