This is certainly no knock on Shane Edwards (whose last 5-7 years have been elite, A-grade), but I'd certainly have Bolton and Stack ahead of Edwards at this stage of their fledgling careers.

And when you think of what Edwards became, that's a scary thought for opposition (assuming they follow a similar path of improvement).

really liked his game, funnily enough it was a couple of passages than didnt turn out that had me most impressed

- clean pick up from his shoe laces, quick side step and left foot snap (went on the full)
- clean half volley pick up running straight at the ball, quick side step, turn, attempted snap pass that got smothered by hodge

he is like a cat, those sidesteps are lightning

Gotta love the opposition supporters from WA clubs that fap over him on their respective boards, then go to the draft and trading board to talk down his value.

Deep down everyone knows he will be a star.
Welcome to bigfooty, where posters of clubs want 2x1st round picks for players who want out but believe they should only give up a late 2nd early 3rd for an equivalent player coming in from another club ;)

That’s a bit rude going back into early posts and nailing people to try and act smart. You’ve taken my post out of context by having cheap shot
I did say extravagant and the reality is we had a plethora on our list. I at the time was looking for ruck stocks and was shocked by the pick. The other thing is since then some of them have fallen off the wayside or left.

Wouldn't stress mate we've all been wrong. Geez I'd hate for someone to drag up some of my efforts from the #eco thread from 2016, or the various threads demanding the club 'sack Dimma'. FFS I was gunning for the Focus on Footy group to get up. Oh and I thought Jayden Post was going to be a superstar. And I thought Shane Edwards should be traded and Houli delisted after the 2015 Elimination Final.

Thank f'n God no-one listened to me!

I think he’s just trying to hard

Trying to be that highlight reel first and show off his freakish talent

Hopefully he realises that where will be a time to blow our minds but first buy into the game plan and play his role and seize the opitunity to do somthing amazing when it presents itself not try and create it every time the ball comes near him

He must of read my post from last year

Put a young Edwards in this current side and I think you'll be saying the same thing.
