He's number 5 here.

This was in the winner takes all championship game as well...
Don't know if it is just me but there seems to be a greater spread of talent in the WA squad 2019 year than many past. That quarter of highlights Pina, Garcia, Ruscoe, Jye Jackson, G- Barass, Jamieson and others all showed a bit to go with Taylor, L Jackson, Robertson, Sharp and of course King Henry.

What was interesting was Hayden Young's quarter of footy. Very ordinary- they'll want to hide that one from any highlights.

I do find it funny when people bang on about this amazing kick he had in the last quarter. Had a very poor game for the 1st three quarters which doesnt get mentioned much

Seen snippets of Western. Not enough to make too much comment but boy is he quick. Summary of game on weekend:

Peel Thunder 8.15 (63) defeated Claremont 4.5 (29)
Peel Thunder is the first team into the 2019 WAFL Colts Grand Final after a 34-point win against Claremont at Revo Fitness Stadium on Sunday morning.

A unique first quarter saw Peel kick six straight behinds, but remarkably managed to keep their opponents scoreless and led by that margin at quarter time. The inaccuracy continued in the second term, with a mixture of rushed behinds and missed shots at goal. The Tigers made the most of limited opportunities to stay in the game. Just before half-time, Connor Heuer was able to finally put the ball in between the big two sticks and break the drought. While Peel well and truly had the running of the game in a number of key areas, you wondered whether the old adage ‘bad kicking is bad football’ would come into play.

However the minor premiers were able to break the game open in the third term by kicking four goals to two with key forward Ben Middleton and classy small forward Tyrone Thorne kicking two each. They continued to be in the ascendency in the final term, kicking another three without reply and wrapping up a convincing victory.

Taking everything into account, Claremont did very well to still be in the contest as long as they were. Peel had almost double the amount of inside 50s (57-29) which led to 14 more scoring shots (23-9). They also had 66 more disposals (332-266).

Tyrone Thorne was exceptional with the state U18s representative having 25 disposals, seven tackles, six marks and three goals. Jarvis Pina was equally influential with the midfielder collecting 25 disposals and nine marks, while Bradley Oldfield produced his consummate performance with 21 disposals and nine tackles. For the Tigers who will now face the Falcons for the second time in a fortnight, it was Joel Western with 24 disposals, seven tackles and five inside 50s, while the blooming talents of Callum Jamieson were again on show with 18 disposals, six marks and 26 hit outs.

With Goldstein re-signing with North Melbourne I’m worried Geelong will go after Sean Darcy now. We really don’t have any cover in the Ruck and we shouldn’t expect Lobb to be anything more than a back up Ruck.

They can go after him and we can say thanks but no thanks.

Sean Darcy is coming along well but he is still a work in progress. Geelong need someone now. There is still Ryder and Jacobs on the market who are prob a better fit. Either way not bothered as Darcy is under contract and with Sandy leaving he won’t be going anywhere.

I see a very good ruck combination between he and Lobb. Lobb showed enough as a high marking fwd who is able to ruck in the fwd half.

Thought exactly the same thing.
That one kick was daring and it came off - that time.
During the game in my opinion he was bog average- especially in the first half when WA belted them.
It’s funny how the Vic media talk him up on one act, Pina, Garcia, Henry and Roberton were absolute stand outs in that game.

Two first rounders and I'd let them take Darcy. Pick 14 this year and something similar next year.

Our best footy this year was with Lobb as the primary ruck. I'm probably more bullish on Meek than most and we could use pick 14 on Luke Jackson.
Yep, if they pay a high price I’d be fine with it.

Can grab a delisted stop gap or a state ruck while someone like Jackson develops

There's a story that Hardie & Hagdorn have both mentioned this week, saying that a certain high profile player at Dockers has pi55ed off the player group & that Freo are considering trading the player out. Hagdorn was reluctant to go into specifics (on personal grounds), but said that he wanted to break it if it develops into a trade story. Does anyone know anything?
(& yes i know - its a crumpet / Hardie story so may well be BS, but they've been pretty strong on it)

They'd be on the money. We don't have many high profile players so it shouldn't be hard to narrow it down.

Fyfe, Walters, B.Hill, Hogan or they're using 'high profile' in the same way the afl website uses 'star player'.




And I am in no way saying its one of those 4.

Taylor can delete this if she wants but given people are going to ask a million questions until we get there anyway and she's not breaking my confidence, the rumor is that Blakely slept with Langdons ex 3 weeks after they broke up and the team was not happy about it.

I heard this rumour three weeks ago.

I am not saying its true or not, but that is the story
