And Cook?I'm pretty bullish on Thilthorpe, Pedlar and Berry. You can't overlook a decent KPF/Ruck prospect who happens to be local so I'm happy we used our first pick on Thilthorpe. Pedlar and Berry look like the exact sort of midfielders we need right now. Big bodies who impose themselves on the contest and a bit of mongrel. I don't think it will be long before those boys are getting games.
I'm not confident about the rest of our draftees. Rowe was a big fish in a small pond playing in the SANFL and I'm wondering whether that form translates to the AFL. I feel that Newchurch could be anything from a superstar to a complete dud. Borlase I can't really comment on as there seems to be bugger all footage of the guy going around. He's a big unit for his age though.
Surely he's the player with massive upside given he was playing "local" footy 12 months before the Panthers saw something in him and invited him down to train with their U18's squad?
