This one excites me...loved his highlight reel!

Edit: has a bit of Jamie Lawson about him.

Watched James in the AFLX. Poised, balanced, good hands, eyes up and pretty quick. Kick looks OK. May well end up the best of our rookies.
yeah he did look good mate, could he be or next big steal from the rookie draft? i also really like that Amartey too, not sure if i spelt that right but the big athletic ruckman we also got.

I rate James Bell. He has a lot of talent and been more then solid in the NEAFL. Is he ever going to play though? I think he could add some x-factor to the Swans forward-line.

He's generally a good kick. Strong at the ball. Clever. Does the easy stuff well. Is a team player. Saw a game two seasons ago when he was on HB. He was unbeatable and ran the ball out really well. His delivery was very good. Against Giants. Dawson was star in the second half and was the reason we killed them. But Bell was top quality. This year he gas been ultra consistent. Incredibly dangerous anywhere near goal. At this stage a poor man's, Michael Walters. Give him a few seasons he'll be Mickie O 2
Havnt seen too much of him to be honest.

Strengths and weaknesses??

I think that is an unfair and unhelpful comparison. Bell is a very different kind of player. For those that need a little bit of a reminder about what club legend O'Loughlin was capable of:
