Non that play Essendon
As Lyon said about JUH this morning, if its good enough for a player like Michael Tuck to play 80+ games in the reserves before playing over 400 in the seniors its good enough for any player to earn his keep.

You only have to look at Draper and Ridley as recent examples.

Plus he along with other draftees hasn't played for a year.

As for Ham and Cahill - I thought Ham was OK, Cahill though should be in VFL.
The difference being that guys like Michael Tuck were playing in a strong side so they needed to show they deserved a game and because the list was 60 with no yearly draft meant you could let guys run around for two or three years developing before getting a senior game.

Hope he has the work ethic to go with his talent. If so, will be a special player that we have not seen on an Essendon list for over a decade.

A lot to like. Hopefully the crap disposal by foot that happened a fair bit was just rushing things from first game nerves. It also occurred to me that his instinct was to keep blazing at goal but then second guessed that and had to rush a kick to try and pass it to someone in a better position. The mechanics look fine and everything else was really promising.
