Hey all, been a lurker for way too long. Thought I’d finally create a profile and bestow you with some knowledge.

Player’s measurements have been updated on the AFL app, and nowhere else as of yet. Thought I’d post this because a lot of people were referencing incorrect measurements last year. Which I can only assume is because the AFC website is 2 years out of date for some reason.

Here is a bunch of our younger/inexperienced players who are a notable difference from last year.


Chayce Jones
181cm 81kg
180cm 83kg
-1cm +2kg

Shane Mcadam
183cm 82kg
183cm 79kg
-3kg

Harry Schoenberg
181cm 83kg
182cm 86kg
+1cm +3kg

Lachlan Sholl
187cm 82kg
186cm 80kg
-1cm -2kg

Fischer Mcasey
196cm 89kg
196cm 96kg
+7kg

Ned McHenry
178cm 75kg
179cm 73kg
+1cm -2kg

Will Hamill
187cm 75kg
187cm 80kg
+5kg

Jordon Butts
198cm 89kg
198cm 97kg
+8kg

Lachlan Gollant
191cm 70kg
192cm 83kg
+1cm +13kg

Josh Worrell
193cm 86kg
194cm 94kg
+1cm +8kg

Ronin O’connor
190cm 84kg
191cm 92kg

Ben Keays
185cm 87kg
185cm 89kg

Jackson Hately
190cm 83kg
191cm 91kg

Riley Thilthorpe

Brayden Cook

Sam Berry

Few thoughts:

Few anomalies like players losing height and or weight probably just explained by error and natural variation.

Good to see most of our young inside mids bulking up. Really gives players like Hately, Keays, and O’Connor a point of difference from Sloane, crouch, laird. Hopefully allows Jones to be more competitive in the contest.

I suspected Hately’s weight of 83kg was wrong last year because there’s no way he put on 8kg over the off-season.

Very happy all of our young KPD’s have stacked on the muscle. We need them to be more competitive this year. Wasn’t sure Butts had it in him given how skinny he was when drafted. I’m bullish on him personally.

Hamill put on some good weight.

Sholl’s and Mchenry’s weight loss seems a little odd. They both look more muscular than last year.

Thilthorpe is huuuuuge

Borlase is an absolute tank
I understand that the ones who have lost height are now in relationships...

Stooped shoulders "yes dear", takes a bit of your height

So the club goes to the trouble of broadcasting an internal trial game, and we ******* b*tch because it's coming through the club app instead of YouTube.
Yeah. It's ironic considering the one complaining about poor video quality cant figure out Bigfooty's 2013 upgrade and un-blur his display pic.

The stream isn't some act of benevolence, it's a way they can pump up the website hits.

Offering up a dated, sub standard stream when they easily could have done the better option. fu** accessibility, let's get the website hits, they'll be happy with whatever we give them.

It's easy to just dismiss being an internal trial, but it's very AFC, it's part of the culture.
What an utterly entitled and rubbish call.

Not only that, even the most bargain basement of supporter realises that Telstra & the AFL own the club websites, not the actual clubs. (Hint: that's why they all look so similar)

Picture quality is much better than last year (they must have addressed that frame rate issue). It's been very stuttery for the last few minutes, starting just before Blue's last goal. I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think the problem is at my end.

Complete bullshit.

What, you think they're bumping up website hits so they can get all that sweet advertising money? You KNOW why that's stupid, right?

You sounds like a complete nuffy complaining about this.

It was a bit low res at my end. That may have been because I was watching on the Android TV browser on my tv.

Matt Hass’ incompetence knows no bounds....shrunk Josh Worrell by 2cm in his first year with us (195cm when drafted).

There's probably issues with the imbedded Telstra media player throttling video bandwidth.

It is up on YouTube now at 1080p.
I had a look at that stream. While it may be a 1080p stream, the quality still looks like 576p to me, suggesting that it is limited by the source material. Maybe AFC media need to invest in better cameras?
