    Looking very good. Field kicking is not swans like.

    Also can we have these commentators and umps? Streets above the usual

    That kick to the leading forward was a bullet

    Agreed, letting the game play and the knowledge of the commentators on the guys is great

    Could play either forward or mid by the looks.

    May be just shorter than Cripps though

    Yup. Especially now show can play a bit through middle. Probably put him around the 5-9 bracket with the two SA talents and King brothers ahead.


    No idea unfortunately. Would like to see a break down myself. Probably champion data has them

    He will be in the team in 2019 as an on-baller and perhaps in 2021 or so he will be moved into the forward line.

    The midfield could really use him, and at 195cm he is going to be a very hard player to match up on.

    Can’t see him in the middle in 19

    He will follow the footsteps of Heeney, Parker etc etc and play hf imo

    Swans hardly ever through them in the middle , always hf

    Reads the play well. Has the same issue as Buddy in that he is a KPF who also has one of, if not the best i50 field kicks.

    Reckon he will fill out - will never be a Hawkins or Cloke though

    Other teams can do it, so can the Swans.

    Pretty bad up forward in the first half, dropped everything that came his way.

    Way better as midfielder, complete one-way player though. Horse will make him work on his defensive game before he gets a go.

    Bit to work with though, midfielder for me.

    I heard Shifter Sheahan say he rates him a definite top 10, perhaps 5 today on SEN.
    So he'll get bid on with 1 now. :)

    You won’t like him Ted

    Like Tom Mitchell doesn’t run defensively

    and no club is going to bid on another teams academy player using pick 1 as it means that said team instantly loses the marketing value of their pick 1 (since they now have pick 2) and they have also just accidentally admitted to their pick 2 player that he wasn't their first choice.
