Brilliant nickname for the young fella! Someone should send it through to the club as it would be a marketing extravaganza for both...

Well done Prophetic.
thanks to my grandson (Marcel) for making me watch Guardians I and II ...well truth is i made him watch it but anyway he had a lot to do with it..he's the one who really thougt of it when he saw JACK and GROOT together.... ..ha! so if it appeals to a nine year old boy it will appeal to most of us on here!!!

RYAN BYRNES (no.52 to St Kilda): “Ryan has been battling the odds since he was 16, when he didn’t make our best 25. He was told he wasn’t good enough for the position and size he was, so he went away and has worked on his body over the last couple of years. Now his body is ready for the midfield.

“He finds the footy, he’s hard at it and he kicks it well but at times he’s messy with it – he’s like (ex-St Kilda midfielder) Jack Steven. He’s going to earn respect really quickly though, because he’ll work really hard.”


LEO CONNOLLY (no.64 to St Kilda): “There was a lot of buzz for Leo after the season because his form was great from mid-year onwards. He’s the best two-sided kick I’ve ever seen, including at AFL level – it’s a complete mirror image on both sides. He can kick to long targets on both feet at pace and I’ve hardly ever seen that before.

“Couple that with his speed and agility, I think he’s tailor-made for AFL football. I’d expect him to play at half-back and he’ll keep improving as he spends more time in an elite environment, so I think he’s an inspired pick by St Kilda.”


JACK BELL (Rookie Draft pick no.5 to St Kilda): “Jack is an athletic big man. He’ll be similar to (ex-St Kilda ruck) Lewis Pierce – the Saints will need to put time into him and it might take him two or three years to play his first AFL game.

“He kicks it really well, he has great hands and he’s a good size at 202cm. If they set him on a path to put five kilos on over the next 12 months, that might be his first step. He’s with his best mate Max King at the club, too.”

I spoke to Jackson Voss. Saints told him two weeks before the draft they were not going to draft him because they were going after players with speed as a main attribute. I would imagine that may be similar why they didn't draft Milne.
Also Talent , Saints were going after players with talent.

No-one cares about Bailey Rice's feelings, after we convinced him to nominate us.
And the club gave him 4 yrs to see if he was up to the standard of playing regular AFL footy and he wasn't.
We paid him very well for those yrs and now he will be on handy coin playing at a lower grade . Something I think he will excel at.
Nobody was treated badly there.
