Andrew McCloud has big wraps on young Freddy Kreuger.

I’ve known Nathan Kreuger and his family for as long as I can remember.


For such a big bloke, Nath’s quite quick and agile. He can play anywhere — both key positions, forward, half-back and on the wing as well. He’s got a long left-foot kick and loves a celebration when he kicks a goal.

He’s courageous too, often jumping into a pack without fear and I know it puts the wind up his dad watching his boy jumping back into a pack the way he does.

This is very good news for Geelong. This kid looks like he has plenty to offer....good pace, good hands, appears to like get his hands dirty and can deliver on both sides of his body.

This is a win!

I'm a South Adelaide supporter and have been reading the comments on the Panthers' FB page. You read nothing but glowing endorsements of the kid from many. The consensus is that we've done extremely well landing this kid.

Its been very quiet around this bloke.....what chance he bobs up next week .....


...and kicks 5 goals......:tonguewink::tonguewink::tonguewink:
Id take that bet. id even give you odds. Unless we change something , I can see better , more established players struggling to kick 5.

I agree it has been quiet ..but lets be fair on NK... id have a look at Forts first game... and there is a lot of downside to playing if he is not ready.
If we really have to play him , perhaps we should get him a game in D ..we seem to be struggling for height down there :eek:

I suspect a year in the VFL for Kreuger. That's okay, provided SavRat and Hawkins remain fit.

SavRat, Hawkins, Rohan, Menegola and *Stanley + *Danger (on rotation) provide enough aerial threat in the F50.

OK..I was a little premature....then again I said he'd kick 5....unerestimated that aspect....


Seriously though, we will be seeing a lot more of this kid in 2020.....after another pre-season...

Quite happy to have taken your money that week ..but you you were on the right horse ,just not the right race.

Id say we will see more of him in 2020 and I would not be surprised to see him 2019. Just to give him a taste. His marking is a such a good asset and I think with afl delivery he could take a mark or two even when he is obvious no where near a finished product..

I like it I like it I like it .... and the punch spoil as well..

The way its looking he will demand selection at some stage..but there is probably more of an opening on the horizon down back. I suspect they will look at the way Blitz came into the side ..and that being first picked for a role doesn't mean thats where you finally settle

When you think he went undrafted and someone like Darcy Fogarty went so high in the same draft it is hard to believe. Almost ships passing in the night stuff atm.

A bit of a blurb on Kreuger in the K Rock footy pages.

"NATHAN Kreuger never wants to go back to laying telephone cables for a living.
At this rate, he won’t have to.
The young key position player, who turned 20 on Tuesday, is turning heads at VFL level as he strives to break into Geelong’s senior side.
Krueger – an athletic 196cm and 88kg prospect – is seen by the Cats as a long-term key forward option and has kicked 14 goals in nine games this season.
But an overkill of AFL-listed talls in attack has forced VFL coach Shane O’Bree to use the South Adelaide product at both ends of the ground throughout the year".
