You can see why Truck mentioned him when saying he was comfortable with our tall stocks.
On one hand, having another key forward developing would be nice but am really starting to lean towards allowing Baldwin &/or Eyre a year in the VFL.

See how they go and hopefully by years end the other guys capable enough (Reid has been mooted capable enough as a fwd, Eyre obviously, Francis fwd or back) decides which way we go.

But yeah, when you see a kid lifting weights before (pre) pre season, it’s hard not to get excited about his prospects.

A report a few months back spoke about how he was staying back after training and doing a bunch of extra work. He's clearly got the talent, and by all accounts he's got the work ethic, I think the only major query is the knee.

Talent gets you so far, work ethic and competitiveness takes you past that line of being a good honest toilet imho

Did i mis hear on trade radio Rendell saying he can play midfield?

I know Rendell says some strange things but it seemed like he had watched him years ago
