Yeah, I was thinking that after that picture of him on the floor was doing the rounds. Mightn't have been the best thing for him to be home, falling back in with his mates who are unlikely to be making the sort of life choices conducive to a success as a professional athlete.
I think he'll get a chance reasonably early on, so we'll have to see how he goes. He was flying before the injury, but he's been out for about 6-7 weeks now, so will probably need a few VFL games before he gets there.
Funnily enough, his concussion issues will actually prolong his career provided he the doesn’t pack it in. His disjointed game time means they’ll stick with him, claiming he just needs a good run at it to make it, when in actual fact, he’s just a bog average player completely out of his depth
Frost just needs to play within his limits. That's exactly what he was doing late last season, going on crazy Frosty runs, and bombing it in the general direction of contests, rather than trying to be too cute or actually hit targets. As long he doesn't start thinking he's Salem coming off half...

AFL.com.au's attempt at naming our Round 1 side ...
B: Neville Jetta, Oscar McDonald, Marty Hore

F: Christian Petracca, Sam Weideman, Joel Smith
I'm actually surprised there isn't a list clubs who've got the spot available, as I'm pretty sure not everyone does. But yeah, we've no major holes needing to be filled, no point doing it now. Unless we felt like plucking a midrange plodder from a State League to replace JKH
I just realised that we've still got a spot on our list that we can fill by Friday. A few teams have/are looking to pick up an extra player in the next few days, tho at this point, it seems like we may be holding onto it for the mid season draft.
