Some promising signs from the kids, will be good seeing them and wiedeman lining up next year
yeh, we were hoping to fast track him but missing basically 2 years of football has hurt him. Play him out in the reserves all year and get him to demand a spot so when his opportunity does come, he can performKelly seem way off it, was horrible last week.
He needs to spend most of the season in the VFL, build him as a key defender and make himself irresistible for selection in the ones.
Agreed, Max is that leader in the VFL we need. A big body, great effort every time he goes near the ball, he’s like that old pro who helps the young bucks but he’s young too. Would like to see Selwood out there as more or less a playing coach.Max Lynch may never play another AFL game but kudos to the guy… heart as big as Phar Lap and his impact attitude wise on the other guys is great… he made that last goal for McInnes with his effort…
Selwood injured his Ankle/Foot just before RD 1 so don't know how long he be outAgreed

He’s 194cm, that should be plenty tall enough unless he’s up against the 200cm uber talls.Defence, best I've seen him play. Does have a bit of the Scharenbergs about him because he isn't quick enough to play on smalls but not tall enough to play on bigs, but was impressed with his decision making tonight. Pretty calm user, seems to read it well. Can see him playing games.
Perhaps he can stay with us if we have a different coach later this season or next.Agree, Sier has his issues. Bucks doesnt know how to manage him. Like Stevo, Treloar, Shaw, Daisy.
It will take another club to iron Siers faults out for him to realise how good he can be. Which will be our loss.
I am not often right but have consistently called for Sier to get senior games. I can only but agree with whoever in this thread surmised that Buckley was a big reason for his omission. I know which of the two I would prefer to be involved with the team. From the outside, Sier's treatment by Collingwood selectors is to say the least perplexing.Or relate to players that are offbeat, for whom footy isn’t an obsessive, 24/7 life-or-death pursuit.
There’s a lot that Sier could do to help his own cause but the facts are he’s a big bodied midfielder with clean hands, great peripheral vision and a big kick, who actually reads ruck taps really well. Lord knows we have a desperate shortage of that skillset in our AFL side but I don’t think Bucks can get past Sier’s body language issues. So instead he picks guys with great body language/effort but who have bugger-all impact.
I reckon if Sier was picked for the AFL side and left to play midfield for 4-6 straight weeks, he’d never be dropped again and the team would be better off for it. It’s not a big ask when you consider the dream selection rides that WHE, Thomas, Mayne, Noble and Cal Brown are enjoying.
