Playing in Friday’s practice match against Footscray, Bosenavulagi blanketed AFL-listed Bulldog Mitch Wallis for much of the game.

Arriving at North as a forward, the former Magpie has spent the pre-season learning to play in defence, and VFL coach Leigh Adams believes it’s paying dividends.

“Atu is knocking on the door for a senior call-up, that’s for sure,” Adams told North Media.
“He struggled a bit early between finding that balance of getting the footy and defending, but he’s figuring that out really quickly.

“Last week he played on a couple of really nippy forwards and did a great job, then this week he did a great job locking down a very good player in Wallis.”
Patch is a good judge :)

Yes that is what I'd do but I suspect injuries might keep our deer in for a bit longer.
Fudge it, chuck Atley on a wing for him to turn the ball over. Won't make much difference from what he does now anyway. Polecat did his hammy anyway so needs to be replaced
