as all clubs do with some of these kids.. the usual "if you're available at so and so pick we'll be looking to take you".. then "sorry, we'll have a look in the rookie".Thanks for the info....
Promised things?... WA clubs? ... Well he is a Geelong player now ..and hopefully we are a good fit for him and his family.
Very few players would have an iron clad certainty that they will be drafted ... and they mostly would be players in discussion pre draft in phantoms etc. Can you imagine what kids like Moore and Garner must have felt as the draft was sliding to a finishing. Sure its tough competition for spots but loss of Motlop does give an opening of sorts ... Its doesnt look like his football talent will be the issue. , what may determine if he is in the consideration spotlight is the way he trains over summer. Id say Menegola is probably a fair comparison .. if he can get out and be in the front group in sprints or do well in the distance runs behind Blitz then he will be right in it.as all clubs do with some of these kids.. the usual "if you're available at so and so pick we'll be looking to take you".. then "sorry, we'll have a look in the rookie".
I'm not saying that there were ever 18 clubs looking at him, just that each year he nominated there were always lots of calls etc. probably the same as every kid that nominates.
they are a great family, great values. of course they'd (as would i) love him to be in WA but he couldn't have more support than he does with them.
personally i'm glad he's at Geelong, i just hope he get's a crack and cements himself, going to be tough with the danger, selwood x 2, ablett, duncan, guthrie, menegola list, but i'm confident he won't give up.
This guy has far more talent then poppy.He needs to at least be best 22 come round one. Anything less and I personally think it’s a bit of a failure.
He will have improvement left in him as he has never been in an AFL system, but you would hope he is good enough to the point of contributing in our seniors.
I know he is a different player, but a similar trajectory to Puopolo is a great example of what to hopefully expect.
Came in as a senior player and slotted in right away, played his role and did a good job. Slowly developed his craft over the years and turned into one of the games premier small forwards.
Point is that he doesn’t need to burn the house down from day one, but he does need to be a regular and play good football coming in at age 23/24
If you tap the cats logo with the play symbol in it then you can see the interviews. Should be able to see it in my screenshot.I can’t find the interviews on the Cats Instagram anyway...
Thanks DinkIf you tap the cats logo with the play symbol in it then you can see the interviews. Should be able to see it in my screenshot.
Completely agree with others about just putting it on the website. I must be getting old
Amazingly their online stuff has actually managed to go backwards.completely agree.
I dont mind the multiple platforms but FFS add it to the website - it cant be that ******* hard.
Ever thought of contacting the club and suggesting that they do just that?Amazingly their online stuff has actually managed to go backwards.
I've got the 76ers app as well, for comparison they have heaps of new content pretty much every day.
While I know the respective budgets are miles apart... surely it's not that hard to put up interviews that were done at 10am this morning
