Sometimes when your feeling down about our football team you have to think of some positives... And this guy is a positive to look forward to. Look forward to see him play live when we get back to the ground!

Had his colors lowered by a very under rated lead ruck and an apt deputy in Lycett and Ladahams on the weekend but continues to impress with his willingess to compete.

Pretty much taken to school by big daddy.

The good thing is that it was all technical. He already has the size and strength to compete with Gawn.

Hopefully Draper gets a lot of work with Jamar over the next 6 month. Jamar was the technician to end them all. Small, well under 2m for a ruck, and no athleticism but managed to be a prolific tap ruckman. Just the guy to hone Draper's craft.

The games we got into him this year will be enormous for our future. Praying for a full preseason from him. Structurally may be our most important player going into next year.

Jamar was a beast.
I still love when Gov tried to give some niggle and he rounded him with a nice hook. poor little gov went quickly into his shell.

My favourite player of the non draftees. Looking for a good year from the big man to enhance his steadily improving reputation.
