It matters, lots of "hyped" Tasmanian products over the last 5 years and virtually 100% of them have performed worse than expected, seems the region is extremely weak and only a "strong" TSL form means he is likely not very good.What's that matter. Assess Davis on his merit with the benefit of seeing how he goes in the SANFL. Seems reasonable.
Yeah he played in our Vfl v EssendonPost from Davo from the draft board. Did Dylan Thomas end up playing for us in the VFL? I know he was training with us. Seems like the sort of kid we'd pick up.
Moyle also played with on the weekend.
Rhyan Mansell played in 3 TSL flags and then a flag in SANFL before debuting for Richmond this year as a 21 yoIt matters, lots of "hyped" Tasmanian products over the last 5 years and virtually 100% of them have performed worse than expected, seems the region is extremely weak and only a "strong" TSL form means he is likely not very good.
In the revamped NAB league he has been performing well against his contemporaries and even did as an underager.It matters, lots of "hyped" Tasmanian products over the last 5 years and virtually 100% of them have performed worse than expected, seems the region is extremely weak and only a "strong" TSL form means he is likely not very good.
Tyler Roos strengths is hes globetrotting ability and a weakness for beautiful women. Hope that helps!You're right to say our ball movement is ordinary and most forwards would struggle with it. This isn't about making Cox a scapegoat. I've supported him a lot. But we have an opportunity to trade him and help us stay out of points deficit for Daicos, to clear cap space to pursue free agents this year (rebuild our midfield, to improve our ball movement) and replace his output with a younger player (who I rate, many don't, but that's cool). To me it's the right thought process to help restore our list.
Edit: You also need to consider Cox's age and our list profile when discussing this. He isn't going to be around when we next contend, but isn't such a leader we'll miss his presence.
On Tyler Roos, what can you tell us about him? Strengths/weaknesses?
Revealed: The top AFL mid-season draft prospects set to do battle in Colgate Young Guns game
On Saturday, Victoria’s best under-23 prospects will have a big chance to impress AFL recruiters. See who has been picked to play in the state’s showcase game.
The best and brightest mid-season draft prospects will have one of their final chances to impress AFL recruiters this weekend in an exhibition match showcasing Victoria’s best young talent.
The Colgate Young Guns game will feature the state’s best under-23 players that are eligible for the mid-season draft in a Metro v Country clash.
Of the 52 players selected in the initial squads for the match, 48 hail from NAB League teams while four are from VFL clubs.
NAB AFL Academy member Ned Moyle has been named as part of the Vic Metro squad and has emerged as a strong mid-season draft prospect.
A 205cm ruckman, Moyle caught the eye of recruiters with a competitive performance in last month’s Academy game against Geelong’s VFL team.
Another ruckman who has similarly attracted mid-season draft interest is 202cm Calder Cannons big man Liam Podhajski, who joins Moyle in the Vic Metro squad.
Eastern Ranges forward Corey Preston, who trained with the Western Bulldogs in search of a Supplementary Selection Period (SSP) list spot during pre-season, will also line up for Vic Metro.
Western Bulldogs Academy members Ewan Macpherson and Cody Raak are on the same team.
The Vic Country squad features a pair of prospects who are brothers of current AFL players.
Charlie Ham — the brother of Essendon’s Brayden Ham — has made a strong start to the season for the Geelong Falcons after being overlooked in last year’s drafts.
Will Papley — the brother of Sydney’s Tom Papley — is a lively forward for Gippsland Power, where his brother also came through the ranks.
Dandenong Stingrays midfielder Will Bravo, who missed out on an SSP spot at Hawthorn over summer, is also part of the Vic Country squad.
The match will be played at Werribee Oval on Saturday from 2.40pm.
The AFL’s mid-season draft will be held on June 2.
