    If you can do the ‘round the world’ without hitting your forehead, you pass the test.

    Fox Sports had Ling going around Essendons pick in the late 40s. Lets hope they were very very wrong.

    sounds like we did a good job keeping this pick under wraps.

    highlights look a million bucks, hit over 30% CP in TAC. so that's good.

    Should be fun watching him

    Beatson said in his interview that his game in the finals blew the lid off of him, probably why we took him early because he wasn't going to be there later after that

    a breakout/dominant final seems a pretty decent reason to "reach" and get the player you really want.

    Happy with that attitude

    Exactly what the doctor ordered. Have a feeling it’s what Beatson tried to order last year but Florent was the only one close to having those attributes. I rekn ling will be a lock for round 1 and push florent out and make him work harder for his spot. Good problem to have and nice to know we’re going to have a few speedsters in the weaponary

    Looks electric. Seen some moments where he's doing it in traffic.

    Hope it transitions

    He looks like a 200+ gamer. That's what you want from a first round draft pick

    “Obviously I want to get drafted and go to the combine and all that, but I just want to win the flag this year — that’s all,” the Geelong Falcon said.

    “It was pretty bad losing in the prelim last year, so I just want to win it this year. We’ve only lost two games and we’re improving every week.”

    Love it

    Hey bedders!

    Does this fellow remind you of a young Mick Turner at Geelong?
    My God he plays in a similar fashion from those highlights.

    Hopefully Mills and Jones can get some inside mid minutes with Ling taking over the role down back.

    Bit of a reach and a needs selection but has what we have been needing for a while

    Pretty sure I saw him mentioned once in the draft thread with a YouTube video. Sure a non-phone user would be able to find the post cause well done to them

    Florent wasn’t even in our last game, nor does he have a locked in spot in our 22. If Ling is going to play round one, he’ll be kicking out Cunningham, Towers, Jones, Lloyd, Newman, McVeigh or Jack. So who goes?

    Both interviews (Beatson and Horse) have a real pleased tone to them giving me the impression they are very happy with the three. The real team player comment caught my ear.

    To be honest I don't think Florent was quite ready body wise to play in 2017. We played him out of necessity but I think he showed enough in 2017 to say with reasonable confidence that in 2019 he should easily be in our best 22, maybe even one of our better players.
