Why did the opposition teams above us in the draft order turn away after this draftee highlights package was available to them?



What a talented footballer. So good to watch him weave between packs. I’m glad that we didn’t coach his flair out of him. Hope he stays!

Can only imagine clubs were worried about his light frame and perhaps consistency, but everything else need to be a top pick was on display there. Had my own doubts early on, but he has developed into an amazing player.

As much as Carr annoys me as a Tiges fan you can't argue that he's not making the best call for his client. If shai keeps up this form till the end of the year and through finals he's going to be on some serious serious coin
Anyone k is what Shai is on my guess would be 400. His range is up to 700 I reckon.

I think homesickness was also a factor

Forgot about his old chipping-style kicking action... seems to have done away with that.
