    Full credit to the club using the Watts pick on an electrician. Up there with Hawthorn drafting Mitchell Lewis, or Lewis Mitchell or whatever his name was.

    I haven't had a chance to see him play but read good thing about him on the forum. Kid can take contested mark. I have seen more positives from his reel than many others taken much higher on the draft board!

    Very very very happy about this from an opposition POV.

    I know his brother and lived next door to a mate of his and they're all absolutely buzzing.

    I was shaking too as I too knew him from primary school.

    Welcome Fritta.

    Over the moon for Bayley, to go from almost not being able to play footy to working into one of the best forwards in the vfl to being drafted

    Give him the #4 and watch him work

    Just ******* leave it. What's the point of bullshit like this. JW gave more to this club than you ever will, have a bit of respect for a 9 year player.

    Calm down. He was just a making a light hearted joke.

    I love Watts's but we all know he was traded do to work ethic issues.

    The joke was no big dig.

    Not many Vfl guys got drafted this year which surprised me given the supposed shallow stocks at under 18 level.

    Fritsch looks to be rather similar to Hannan in role, so I hope we can fit them both in.

    what did he actually give??? definitely wasnt his all. respect? you mean like his own club trading him with 2 years left on his contract. youd find he didnt show much respect or didnt give **** all. so they had enough but carry on crying over the exact reason we were shite

    He spent time playing for Casey yeah? I thought we were a sneaky chance to take him.
    Must be some kind of affiliation thing, i just thought he was already ours, like we knew we were going to use a pick on him

    I thought he looked really good when I went along to watch Casey this year. Seems to work hard to get to dangerous spots. I’m glad we picked him.

    Bayley suffered the same back injury as jesse Hogan and only did half a pre season

    Enjoy a fully fit Bayley leading up from the forward line

    Hannan a better forward in terms of leap but Bayley is a better player
    Classy wing with elite kicking and heavily underrated contested marking

    He looks elite overhead with beautiful foot skills. From that clip though doesn’t look quick. That will be his challenge I reckon. If he’s playing on guys five yards quicker than him he better be good at contested marking because he won’t be getting anything uncontested.

    Prettt happy if naughton can fix his kicking action he will be an elite defender while Richards reminds me of JJ
    Porter at 74 is a massive steal, if he was 6cm taller would be a top 30 player

    He's already quick now against afl defenders with limited pre season
    In a full time environment he will be able to break off from his defender
