Because this year is the post-covid year.Why on earth would you pick a project player in the mid season draft?
Surely you pick a player that can contribute for the rest of the season in an area of weakness.
Coildnt agree more, he's listed the same height as Sam Docherty fwiw.He's not tall enough to play tall; he's not fast or agile enough to play small. He doesn't draw the ball or provide crazy forward pressure. He needs supply or at least the ball in his vicinity for the game to be on his terms, and he's not going to get that unless he gets clear, which is not something that's going to happen because of his physical attributes.
There was talk he’d be playing with the Falcons this year as an overage player, but I’m not sure he even made their squad.Any news on Henry Walsh? Was hoping he might be worth picking up in the msd if showing something
Damn that’s a shame, just the heart, effort, intelligence that Sam shows, was hoping his brother was brewed similarly & also I do like the romance of it all too.There was talk he’d be playing with the Falcons this year as an overage player, but I’m not sure he even made their squad.
I read that he was thinking of taking time away from the game, but maybe he’s playing locally down there.
It was a nice fantasy by some to reunite the brothers, but Henry was a mile off it.
Great point.There's a decent chance a first or second round prospect is available to us through this mechanism. You don't throw that away with our injury list as it stands.
By the time this draft rolls around, Kemp, Martin, TDK, Durdin, Williamson, Ramsay, and Setterfield should be challenging for selection, with Charlie about to resume in the VFL.
Is it the state league drop (Nick Graham factor) or potential AFL grade midfielder in waiting?
Think this is a really good point. Could he cope with the extra running demands without breaking down.Is it the state league drop (Nick Graham factor) or potential AFL grade midfielder in waiting?
Would have concerns with the hammy’s with the increased loads to AFL training + intensity. 26yo this year (2013 draft).
Not a chance. Club learns slowly yes, but surely learned lately that players who have multiple years torched by injury seldom come back at the same level, and more often continue to suffer from ongoing injury curse. We don't need another midfielder either, unless they are a proven A grader. Let another club take that risk if they want to, unlikely I would have thought.
Sort of De Goey lite in a way. 188cms so not small, decent build, doesn't mind the physicality. 24 years old. Has he got better? Can't blame him for anything he did at Adelaide during shortened quarters. They hardly scored.Disagree , I think it has clicked for Crocker and he is def strong enough to compete with AFL listed players. He is very quick, would likely be our quickest forward. Would be a point of difference in our forward line.
our ressies are able to pass to him and he has kicked a few goals that way so cant see why our senior players cant do it. when leads are on it would make the decision making for the player looking for a pass a lot easier. i dont think our forwards do enough leading.You could lead like Dunstall, but unless Jarman is kicking it to you, it don’t mean sh*t....unfortunately
I think we give him a year in our system, see if we can't improve that tank some. He looks likely as a running defender/midfielder, loves a tackle and is strong overhead whilst competing very well on the ground. He's a bit classy with ball in hand, too.I'd pick up Stefan Radovanovic. 192cm and very quick. Can play midfield as evidence by his 2018 season with the Western Jets when he won their B&F.
Had some great phantom draft write-ups.
Played a good last qtr yesterday, named BOG again.I think we give him a year in our system, see if we can't improve that tank some.

My concern with him is purely his ability to run out a game. If he's struggling at VFL level, how's he going to go at the tail end of a grueling slog at the G against Richmond?
TBH, I haven't seen him do anything in the VFL to suggest he's up to AFL standard.Toby Wooller has impressed me
195cm CHF and 22 years old
Could he pinch hit in the ruck and play the Cas role ??
