I like him as a player, quick, smart, a bit aggro and reads the play well.
Just worried where he plays at the next level.
Looking at the trending in the AFL, leaves me concerned with most of the WA tall's in this cohort.
JVR is 194 cm and thats almost " tweener " height now, good if you are...
IMO Amiss is not going to be a genuine KPF in the AFL, he is a third tall, all be it a very good one at that, think Gunston at the Hawks where he was teamed with Buddy and Roughead.
My comments are not meant to be a slight on Amiss but he neither has the size or contested pack marking ability...
Don't worry I gave him very serious consideration when I took the pick in the BF Draft today, ended up taking Goater as ***** ** , Johnson went the pick before ours.
His name was one of four that I considered for our first pick, that was still available.
Knevitt's stocks will very much be on...
You can bet your bottom dollar that, his Manager David Trotter, has been spruiking him up, to all that will listen and telling them that the relationship is so fractured that Brander will not be returning to West Coast but is looking for a new home, for free.
So why the hell...
Now Knightmare you ****** ****** ******* ******* I wanted MJ.
You are officially off my Christmas card list. ;)
Truth be told if I could trade this pick I would to drop back and consolidate my latter picks.
Pick 12. Josh Goater. 190 cm 78kg. Midfielder. Calder Cannons.
Full write up to come...
It's not that straight forward as "we messed the whole thing up " the young player has to be wanting to be part of the NGA and in his case cricket was his number one priority consequently he choose cricket over football.
My understanding of the situation, now after have been given some more...
You make some valid points Obeanie1
What he really needs is to use that speed of his ............. in TWO way running.
I swear to God that he always seems to me as if he runs 20% quicker running towards the goals than he does running away from it.
With that blistering pace of his...
What a waste of a first round pick.
I won't even vent what I really think about this massive cock up.
Needless to say disappointment and dissatisfaction with our recruiting and development team are prevalent thoughts.
WCE_phil that third game SA v WA was a strange one, as it for many players lowered their draft range rather than improve it and I make that comment directed at both teams.
But what it did do, was give recruiters some things to consider when evaluating " flash" over consistency.
Sure some like...
Great effort eth-dog :thumbsu:
I was really surprised that Conway isn't anywhere on, that list ........... unless I am totally blind and have missed him.
Whilst I know this years ruck cohort is thin, I reckon the Big Fella gets a look in within the first four rounds of the draft.
Tommy Barrass and his partner Nadia Rosa have welcomed a little boy into the world:
Billy Anthony Barrass.
Future father son addition to the West Coast Eagles, let hope he becomes a Premiership Player for WC just like his Dad is .
Thats the trade period over for another year:
So who was the big winner ?
Peter Bell V Stephen Wells.
What were they fighting over.
Did we get a winner ?
Oh yeah .............................. I think so.
