    There was quite a bit of Brad Green in Lenny Hayes because he was pretty stiff as well.

    There is no Brad Green in Bayley Fritsch. If Green wasn't a left footer no one would be comparing those two. Nevertheless, I did like the Cameron Bruce comparison. That was an astute comparison. Green, not so much.

    Left-footed, good kick, spiky hair, versatile, courageous. There's a bit of Green, even if the style is different.

    Cameron Bruce way more than Brad Green.
    I think Fritsch can develop in a similar way to Bruce aswell.

    Love how he doesn't get sucked in. Very good for our structure.

    There was a bit of Wayne Carey in Tom Macnamara. Both humans.

    Difference between Fritsch and Bruce is Fritsch is courageous and can actually kick.

    Is Balic a chance? I reckon we could be in for a debut here.

    I was referring to Lenny Hayes being stiff because he played for your club. Guess that wasn't made obvious enough.

    Balic was apparently out with an illness last week.
    i think he's on a 1 year contract? i'm not sure if he'll be retained if he hasn't got a 2nd year to go. not a bad player but hasn't cracked it for a game yet and sort of looks a bit to me like he doesn't have the right body shape of an AFL footy player. maybe carrying a few extra kg's up top and has skinny legs suggesting he might not like doing the hard yards. we might give him another year, but we also have to make some changes to the list at the end of the year and places are gonna be tight.

    Bit of similarity with how Bruce and Brayshaw kick actually, that horrible ball drop gives me nightmares (Gus at least has a left foot though).

    Balic strikes me as one of those players that will either never come on or will take until their 6th or 7th year in the system.

    I know, it's more about overcoming my own urge. I also want to save it for when he gets suspended

    Been sick mate, then had a wrist injury prior. Has only played once in 4 weeks. Would love to see him get a gig soon though
