    Claremont absolutely smacked Perth Today, so that is a great effort, English certainly has a tank on him, is a hard
    worker.
    You can see why Jake Patmore is on the radar, classy, good size about him, will be interesting to see who makes the
    state team, if English is there, he would look better with more class surrounding him.

    I was there watching my mates son play for Perth, so in all honesty I find most of the information about
    young talent from BF.

    Liam Ryan is a very talented but consistent goal kicker and IMO would be a great get for us with our third round pick. Can see him going earlier even in the second round. If he is in the right headspace would just really suit this Freo team....

    I agree but might not be around , eagles with lecras getting older might get him at their second , don't mind other option like Liam baker or Perth ninyette if that is the case .

    Wasn't it you who just a couple of weeks ago told me there was a reason he wasn't looked at and we should steer well clear due to a 10 something beep?

    Or am I thinking of someone else?

    Wasn't me Lach - last year I was against it at least until the rookie draft but this year the consistency and quality is too hard to ignore. He is comparable to Medhurst / Ballantyne / Shane Yarran levels of dominance as a mature age small forward and we all know how they went at the next level.

    I think we are in the market for an evasive sharpshooter and apart from going really top end draft (which I think is a waste of a pick) you can't go past him.

    The problem is if he run a decent beep test this year, hawthorn might go in with GWs second round pick , mature age ready to replace poppy or rioli . But the risk of him going interstate is still there , but I think he is the mature type, more easily to adapt after two season with subiaco than garlett

    The fact we don't have a second rounder could cause us an issue. How does he compare to Duffy? He also looked good in the WAFL but could not take the next step.

    Don't know the stats off hand but probably a two goal a game better player at WAFL level than Duffy and slightly more tricks.

    Even so, I think second round is still too early given still a fair risk as you point out - there are a heap of good talls and mediums that will still be around in the second round; if we had a second rounder I wouldn't pick him there.

    JOHN FRAMPTON | SOUTH FREMANTLE
    RUCK | 199CM | 87KG

    The younger brother of Port Adelaide player Billy, John Frampton continues to prove that he is one of the premier ruckmen in this year’s WAFL Colts Competition. Against the Lions he recorded 28 hit-outs (11 more than the next best), but was also damaging around the ground, finishing with 26 possessions (12 contested), six marks, four inside 50s and four rebounding 50s. Frampton is currently third in the competition for hit-outs with a total of 138 at an average of 20 per game. The Kardinya junior looks to be a very promising ruckman for any AFL club that picks him up.


    KYRON HAYDEN | SUBIACO
    MIDFIELD | 185CM | 88KG

    Heading into round nine, Hayden was in the lead of the WAFL Colts Coaches Award with 22 votes from just eight games, establishing himself as one of the competition’s premier midfielders. Against the Bulldogs he was phenomenal with 22 possessions (10 contested), seven marks, four tackles, three inside 50s, three rebounding 50s and two clearances. It is easy to see why he has already drawn comparisons to Gold Coast’s David Swallow and Port Adelaide’s Ollie Wines due to his appetite for the contest and his starring work in the stoppages.

    Has anyone else seen that NT Thunder player named Adam Sambono. I'm watching him tonight in the NEAFL replay playing against Gold Coast - he's already kicked 3 goals in the first quarter. Seen him star on a previous occasion in the local NT league.

    http://www.ntthunder.com.au/player/adam-sambono/

    Even though he's 20yo he has been included in the Allies Squad for the National u18's championships under an exception circumstances rule

    Is the player called Olango playing for NT Thunder the same one that was discussed as a possible draftee last year?

    I've watched a few quarters of the Thunder on NITV. Sambono has been a factor in all of them. Oozes talent. Was having the yips with his set shots too. Will be interesting to see how he goes in the 18s.

    The NEAFL is becoming a reasonable comp with the 4 AFL reserves and 6 decent teams now that Canberra and Sydney get all their players into one team each.

    FORWARD POCKET – CODY NINYETTE (Perth)
    The dynamic small forward is one of a host of exciting youngsters that the Demons are giving plenty of opportunities to in 2017 and it's paying off. He has played every game this season and had kicked nine goals before Saturday's win over Claremont where he delivered 15 disposals, four tackles, five inside-50 entries and four crucial goals.

    FORWARD POCKET – LIAM BAKER (Subiaco)
    Had an impressive colts career with West Perth and was looked at as a potential draftee, but that didn’t quite eventuate. He thought it might be in his best interests to get a start at a new club and the small midfielder arrived at Subiaco but it was always going to be tough to find a midfield spot. Instead he has come in as a small forward and done a tremendous job including four goals from 23 possessions, five marks and five tackles in Saturday's win over South Fremantle. He could easily have had six goals too had he not missed some relatively easy shots late.

    Hey Chris, now the forward line is looking healthier for Talls, its looking more likely we need a small forward.
    Have you got any information on Jordan Houlihan, and there is another JJ, Jordan Johnston.

    Anyone know anything about a Harley Stack?

    Been approached by 6-7 AFL clubs, and wants to stay here.

    Possibly the wrong timing to suggest another Harley. In a couple of months I'm sure we'll be all about it.
