24. Tom Powell.

Midfield combinations work best when each member brings different but complimentary skills to to the table. With Tom it is death by a 1000 cuts.He is the natural accumulator in the group who kills you by quietly racking up possessions and using his quick hands and vision to put other players in better positions. Still looks about 12 years old so a fuller pre-season will help his development immensely. Will get more time in the midfield in 2022 and by the end of 2022 the rest of the competition will start to see what we see.

Do You See What I see?.....TP a "hunter and collector" of the ball...quite an apt description.

25. Paul Curtis

Nobes identified the need for a small forward as a priority in this year’s draft and we got one. The small forward role is as much about goals as it is about pressure acts and locking the ball in the forward line so this should be Paul’s focus. Given that Jack Mahony is the incumbent in the role he is likely to start there but it won’t be a surprise if Paul gets a game early in the season. That will give us multiple X factor players in the forward line.

26. Tarryn

The most naturally gifted player in the side. Last year, his third year, was when performance started to match potential. He provides the class in our midfield mix. We rotate our mids through half forwand which is not natural for some as they are pure mids. Tarryn is comfortable in this role as he has natural forward capabilities. The improvement should continue & if it does we have an absolute star on the books. The footy media are just starting to recognise how good he is.
