    Interesting, kid who has struggled with a few injuries and also quit TAC Cup at one stage.
    Has pace and is not a bad size.

    Very good player, will be dynamic off half back.

    Perhaps we have him to replace the sookyness we lose from our list with Carlisle going.

    snoop says
    "19yo who bit hard to get a read on exactly where he will go. Withdrew from the Chargers side last year citing lack of interest only to rediscover interest after seeing a number of mates drafted. Struggled a bit with injury but should enough during the champs and club level to suggest there is a spot for him. Backed it up with elite testing at the Draft Combine and given clubs desire for speed he should go sooner than later. Strong kid, good core, has good agility, pace and lateral movement and has shown could play back and middle. I could even see him playing forward. Looks good with ball in hand and doesn’t appear to rushed. Vision looks to be very good. Clubs will be very focused on whether or not his commitment levels are sustainable."

    You'd have to assume it was a big focus in interviews and the club was happy with the answers

    “Had some injury issues this year with a couple of hamstrings, which was disappointing but he’s blessed with perfect speed, has got a great leap, reads the play really well and he’s a great kick. He’s a 19 year old for us this year – a guy that I probably see in a maturity sense as being a 21,22 year old, but in a footy sense he’s more like a 17 year old so I think there is still a fair scope for improvement, which is exciting.”

    A couple of interesting selections. It'll be interesting to look back at this draft in five years time and see who ended up finding the gems.

    Wouldn't worry about him, elite speed and kicking. Also has a solid leap on him and reads the play very well.

    Poorish tank (13 beep), gave the game away last year before rediscovering the passion and has had some minor injuries. I had him around 20 so he's a good pickup that could play round one next year.

    I'm no expert on the draft but Alex Morgan, especially when Mitchell Hibberd was still available. Really? I guess the club knows better than I do. Welcome to the club Alex.
