Congratulations Curtis!!

We’re crying out for young talent in the position he plays. Really hope he’s got what it takes to make a spot in the forward line his to own.

First game so no lofty expectations, just put in for the jumper and your mates and lets see what happens.

VFL watchers, how does he rate on the Mongrel Scale?

I see a lot of Tim Taranto in Taylor. I hope that Taylor can continue to work on his endurance base and develop into a high high forward/mid role like Taranto as opposed to the Forward role. Nothing wrong with that of course but with his x-factor he looks to have a higher ceiling.
That's a big rap. Taranto is a gun.

Hope you're right.:thumbsu:

Pumped for this kid. All of a sudden in Taylor, Ziebell, Wood, Zurhaar, Garner and Thomas we’ve got a heap of tweener forwards who can provide difficult match ups for defences.
All 6 of those guys can kick a bag on their day, hold onto a good grab, have reasonable pace, are above average off the deck and can stick a tackle (Taylor and wood maybe not so much). Has the makings of a pretty dynamic forward set up.
