Pretty sure I’ll back Taylor & his teams judgement over some pelicans in the media.. it was considered Oliver was taken too early now is close to the best from his draft, we plucked AVB from bloody Nowhere and when fit is bloody great.. Taylor hasn’t got many wrong so pretty excited what we might get from this kid because clearly he has developed a lot this season and performed every time he’s stepped up the ranks

Oliver is easily the best player from his draft, it's daylight between him and Curnow and then daylight again.

You can only assume Taylor thought Jordan had someone else keen so we jumped early. Quiet young and should have plenty of improvement. Seemed to have a bit of game sense in the highlights.

Can you give us a run down on what you like about him? Enjoy your thoughts on the DT board

I really like his kicking and composure in traffic, has the makings of a good midfielder if he can improve his endurance and a bit more aggression wouldn’t go astray. When he is on he can get a tonne of it especially early in the game but he always seems to drift out which is to do with his engine not being up to it yet

Seems like a perfect player for Brendan McCartney to work with.
