    14. Jack Higgins (VIC)

    Best position: General forward/outside midfield
    Height, weight: 178cm, 76kg
    Recruited from: Oakleigh Chargers
    Projected draft range: first round
    Similar to: Lewis Taylor
    July Ranking: 12
    Rationale: Continuing to perform both as a midfielder and forward to a high level. Only drops slightly with the rises of Naughton and Clavarino.
    Strengths:
    One touch at ground level
    Natural crumbing forward
    Kicking skills on both sides of the body
    Goal sense
    Lowers his eyes and hits forward 50m targets
    Plays taller than his height with his overhead marking
    Capable one-on-one mark
    Tackling pressure
    Plays well as forward or midfielder
    Production
    Leap
    Agility
    Endurance
    Work rate
    Work ethic
    Consistent performer
    Weaknesses:
    Impact per possession low as midfielder


    This is the great Knightmare's assessment of Jack Higgins. Sounds like the prototype of what we need! Get him Cambo!!

    Yep, agree, really like the look of him. Commentary that he has a great work ethic and has put in tremendous & meticulous effort in developing and preparing himself. Also, a little Toby Greene-like: so why wouldn't we want two of Toby?! Don't know how we get him, and think he'll go a touch higher than 14 anyway.

    The other I really like is Nicholas Coffield for his run out of defence, thinking about a replacement for say Heath Shaw in a year or so.

    Any concerns that Vic Metro boys are more a flight risk?

    Not as a rule really, some individuals for sure.
    Some of our more rusted on players are Vic boys

    Nahh. Flight risk is pretty much the same for everyone, once large bags of cash come into play.

    It's about doing your homework with the player and family to inform the likelihood of adjustment going well. Every now and then, despite everyone's best intentions, homesickness becomes an issue. The bigger issue for most is $$. The final draw is the fame and attention one gets in the traditional AFL States. Can only think of one of our boys wanting that....looking at you Adz!

    Got me self some popcorn reading the last page of the North Josh thread.

    So the AFL are helping us keep him and its us doing all the leaks.

    Of course it would make more sense that its North as they have been leaking since March this year.

    Reading main board and other teams forums... It seems as the reality starts to settle in, so too does the unjustified self-entitlement, particularly the North fans haha

    Lolnorf. No one wants to go there.

    It's always great to see players wanting to stay at their club!

    Good news. After reading the ramblings of Nth supporters in the Martin and Kelly threads on the draft and trading board, I was hoping he'd re-sign with you blokes.
