well then have a look at this!!Lol, we have about 27 fit players on the list at the moment, I don't think that's a problem.
If anything he's been easing him into it gradually. He's still only attending 3 or 4 CBA's a game, as he's still a rake.
Makes his ability to find the ball all the more impressive, seeing as he's being doing a major % of it at half forward.
He's a nailed on 30+ disposal winner as early as year 2 or 3.
He's not too dissimilar to Clayton Oliver imo.
he hasn’t had a game where I haven’t shaken my head at something he’s done.
18yo 6’7” midfielder who runs ~15km a game, usually sits atop the average speed tracker and can kick it 60m to a teammate off either foot. At 18.
Seasoned draft watchers had him going late first round and a big risk. I do wonder if we would have picked him at 6 if we didn’t have the Daniher compo and the Saad trade. Maybe our luck is finally turning
Yeah I get the feeling if he had exposed 2020 form in the juniors he would have been hard to ignore in the top 5, but even with junior footy you’d still have to worry about picking Cale Morton / Mark Bolton mark III can see why just because there isn't really a player to compare him to - so hard to tell how he would adapt to AFL. Seems to be adapting pretty well.
I am so excited by Powell - he has insane hands, high footy IQ, natural ball winner, kicks quite well and he's alot quicker then he looks as well. But just such a smart footballer and still very lean, but no issues in the midfield against AFL bodies.
Don't forget James Rowe..averaging over a goal per game and has kicked multiples against the 2 top 4 sides we beat this year and also is a very clever user of the ball by foot and hand.. a very astute pick up for us so farBerry has been our surprise packet. Very hard edge, would be leading our tackle count & good mark for his size. Now kicking some goals after a point steak to start his career.
Our forward line now looks much better with Thilthorpe with Tex & Fog. 5 goals on debut & what is exciting is that he is just us comfortable sharking a ground ball as he is taking a mark. Looks OK in ruck we are he got possession after his own tap. Looks like he will be our best player since McLeod.
Powell was such a insane ball magnet at his level. If he continues to develop he could be a massive win for your recruiting team.
while I love both Powell and Phillips, and think that both will be considered draft successes, I can’t help but look at MacDonald and think how much a MacDonald and Powell draft, especially with Horne possibly coming a year later would set you up.
Reckon he just suffers from a case fresh drafted Nat Fyfe frame. He seems hungry enoughHolmes - the player Geelong traded a 1st round pick to select, has played a few games. I'm not as impressed as some of our supporters. Athletic and can find the ball but seems allergic to contact. Hopeful when he puts on weight and that area of his game improves.
