    Player Watch #24: Tom Powell - selected with #13 in 2020 National Draft - welcome to North Melbourne

    His best asset is his footy brain - he knows where to be at the right time, uses his body really well and makes the right decision by hand and foot. This means that the knock for me around his kicking is more his execution over a medium-long to long range distance rather than the decision-making...

    2020 Draft Day Wash Up - Thoughts on our picks

    Check out the article. If it's true to what happened then we did everything we could - it just happened that other clubs had more to offer. Example: Geelong offered a future first round to Richmond vs us offering a future 2nd round). I just love the endeavour.

    2020 Draft Day Wash Up - Thoughts on our picks

    Let me just say this quote here fill me with so much bloody hope moving forward: 'Powell was long in the sights of the Kangaroos, with the South Australian ball-getter 'round one ready'. He was ranked slightly ahead of Cook and Henry of the available players for the Roos, who then set their...

    Player Watch #29: Will Phillips - selected with #3 in 2020 National Draft - welcome to North Melbourne

    27 touches, 8 tackles in a preliminary final as an underager is nice. His elite ability to keep his feet despite physical pressure, stoppage work, quickness over his first 5 steps and defensive work is really showcased in this video.

    Player Watch #29: Will Phillips - selected with #3 in 2020 National Draft - welcome to North Melbourne

    Give me a break. What a load of crap. You know nothing about Hollands or Phillips and at most have watched their highlights clips and just read the same re-hashed crap about each draft prospect in the lead-up. I'd write more but this sort of rubbish doesn't deserve a longer response.

    2020 Draft Day Wash Up - Thoughts on our picks

    My order of preferences for the guys leftover: 1. Heath - Not going to lie - I really want Heath. 202cm, hard tackling ruckman who has developed late. He has an October birthday which suggests there's room for further growth to his frame and development in addition to the jump he already made...

    2020 Draft Day Wash Up - Thoughts on our picks

    Phillips was in my top 3 Powell in my top 10 Ford in my top 15 Lazzaro is hard, agile and has some versatility Spicer is risk worth taking as an outside runner with xfactor and pace to burn. I'm absolutely over the moon. I will admit a little confused that we used our first 3 picks on...

    Game Day Draft Day 2020

    Not sure what the idea is behind drafting Lazzaro - very good player who deserves to be drafted but he's a midfielder without any big stand-out traits (and we just drafted 2 pure mids). Would actually love for us to see whether he could transition to playing small forward at the next level as he...

    We've got to put in bids for one of or both of Brandon Walker and Joel Western... And then take Carroll

    Jack Carroll is just about perfect for Hawthorn. Will be interesting if they choose to pass on him.

    I like Poulter too. Either of these guys would be great.

    Brayden Cook going here surely. Or Poulter.

    Callow a rookie pick at best IMO. I think he's a bit overrated around these parts.

    Game Day Draft Day 2020

    Dont want to jinx it but if Jack Carroll makes it to our pick I'd suggest he picks himself... Brandon Walker and Joel Western need bids put in on them too. We should do it if no one before us does. EDIT: Just realised Brayden Cook is still on the board. Bloody hell if he gets to our pick and...
