Not sure if it's been discussed somewhere else but with the Valente talk figure ill add it here. In the captains votes he was voted by 1 as their pick to win the rising star ... one would have to assume that would be Fyfe (Only one that'd really have seen much of him/have any reason to vote him over Walsh/Rankine and the likes.)
Not trying to read overly much into it, but Fyfe seems like the kind of guy that'd put a bit of thought into these things which if true, would mean he'll be playing a fair few games this year and is highly rated within the club. Hearing he's training with the mids really doesn't surprise me, wouldn't be surprised if he debuts fairly early on.

I'm curious how much his groin/hip issue, that he brought with him into the draft, factored into his slide.
He seemed a top 20 pick by many of the experts and ticks off everything in relation to character - school head boy and excelling in his yr12 exams. From memory there was an issue with his knee at draft camp preventing him from the combine running activities.

If he comes good he is a key plank in the midfield for our future.

Good thing for us that Hip/groin issues have a dramatic effect on slowing down your pace. When his hips are released and his drive train is working effectively he could be chasing down The Hill boys

The guy had talent to burn. We could not make it happen though. Bet that champion clubs could have though. :-(

By champion clubs you mean on of the other 15 that overlooked him in all round of the national and rookie drafts?

Fyfe clearly rates this guy highly... Mentioned twice n the media in the past couple of weeks.
He's exactly what Fyfe needs along side him too. Big bodied ball-getter, with decent disposal. Hopefully progresses rapidly. We need one or more of Valente, North or Bewley to transition to the best 22 as soon as possible. Three players with physically developed bodies who can get it, and then deliver it.
