A genuinely ignorant question - if someone is drafted in the mid-season draft, what is their status at the new club? Are they a rookie or ‘top up’ or regarded as instantly full-time on the new list?
Is Snelling basically already training at the Hangar from this week?

Like the pic, quick, hard at it, good skills. Throw him in this week to get a look, nothing to lose.

Welcome Will.

Not sure he would make the move over in time for Blues match? He might be in the mix after the bye.
Good luck to the kid anyway.

Someone’s taking the piss, it either is Mingma and someone that knows him has jumped on wiki this morning and edited it after seeing us talk about on here or it isn’t Mingma and someone has done a Trojan horse job on his wiki page and it’s been sitting there since last September without anyone noticing until last night.

The edit history on the page says it was edited on September 11th last year. I’m calling deep state involvement.

From what I saw of him as a junior his footy smarts weren’t an issue, his height and light frame would have been my main queries.
Most have been more than that. At 175/176 cm not like he’s Caleb Daniel small. And to have ‘elite’ athletic stats something must have kept teams from not drafting him if he went via rookie.

It’s got George Orwell’s 1984 all over it...

why all the fuss with his height?

listed as 1-2 cm taller than Devon. Same weight now too I think. Could be his identical twin!

Looks stocky enough for his lack of height not too matter too much. Listed at 89kg on footywire but not sure about that. If thats true then he could be a small bull.

I like the way he has progressed his output over 3 years.

Will be interesting to see if he can keep up with the pace and power of AFL football.
