Not necessarily a forward pocket, but a general forward like a Gresham/Papley that works up the ground and gets 15-20 possessions a game and a good mix of assists/score involvements/goals.

Basically, he's the guy want want to have as the last possession before Larkey or Brown.
Yep patch Adams replacement and turner spot should be his target.
Improve tank and tackling pressure

The Roos have been impressed by exciting small forward Jack Mahony in match simulation and believe he could play in Round 1 if he continues his form.

A smart forward who finds space and uses the ball well, he is one of several players who will be desperate to fire in the four games ahead.

Mick McGuane told me that he reckons Curtis Taylor will play 150+ games, for North. Says he's definitely got what it takes.
Who knows whether or not this will eventuate, but Mick is a seriously good judge and I rate his opinion.
I rate Mick's opinion also and I will ask inquire about your claim the next time I run in to him.

I don’t know whether he’s Lincoln McCarthy or Robbie Gray’: North legend earmarks future Roo star



Get a funny feeling we might finally have a kid that doesn't need 2 years of VFL before he actually has an impact G.R.
Think he may step straight up 👍

Looks the goods! One of those dynamic, low centre of gravity nuggets. Looked like a 100 game player already, the composure and headiness was there. Plus he kind of looks like Troy Makepeace from far away.
Mentioned it in the GDT. A cross between Troy and the great Corey Jones :-D

Was pretty good when he had ball on hand. Good vision ,skills and something to work with.
Agree with that. A moment on the half forward line, just held the ball to draw the opponent to him before shooting the handball to Jy in space to deliver to Larkey in the goalsquare. Mahony plays smart and mature.

Time will tell with Jack. No doubt he’s got footy nous. His next step, for mine, is that he will need to be able to create more space for himself. That’s not an easy thing to do. If he can manage it, he’ll be major plus for us. If he can’t, unfortunately, he won’t make it.
