Based on?
I think we made the correct call in cutting him but if you were to look at it from Ned’s point of view:

- Reserves being heavily impacted by Covid removed continuity from his game.

- Trained as backman all preseason earned a spot in the round 1 side only to be dropped and then played as a mid forward in the VFL.

- When he actually did get games as a forward in the seniors he acquitted himself reasonably well.

Failed to find the neds level, ned minnit, cut. I don't mind to re rookie him if nothing else comes to market. A full year in the vfl will do him good.

alrighty then

The 20-year-old will be looking to carry over his strong VFL form from last season which saw him average 15.8 disposals, four tackles and four marks across nine games.

The Blues are well aware of the damage Cahill can cause, with his most-notable performance in the VFL last season coming against the Carlton Reserves where he collected 23 disposals to go along with four tackles and six marks.

The highlight of his AFL career came in his second game, kicking two majors including the match-sealing goal in a narrow win against Adelaide.

“We can’t wait to have Ned join the team next season: we saw first-hand what he was capable of when he played against us in Round 3 and we’re excited to see him do it in the Navy Blue.

“He will be a great inclusion to the forward line in 2022 and we can’t wait to have his craftiness in front of goal and manic style of pressure in our side next season.
