Height: 178cm

DOB: 22/03/1992
Position: Defender
Recruited from: Northcote Park

Small defender with good dash and skills apparently, impressed for Northcote Park in the Northern FL for the past 2 years. At his height and weight he'd want to be able to do that at this level, might get pushed around a bit.

Interesting.

You don't see the EFC website do these sort of puff pieces on VFL-only players that often.

I wonder if the club has some ideas...
I doubt they'd recruit Ben. The club has taken strides this year in the coverage of our VFL side this year though.

Did the recruiter give any thoughts on McNeice ?

My vision indicates he has the tools to be an AFL player.
Didn't speak much about him, just said to keep an eye out for him.

I like what I've seen from him too. Pace seems above average, kicking is above average and despite his size (a tall looking 178cm/75.5kg) he cracks in hard.

If he is given a state game gig, won't be surprised to see him go to the combine. Everyone likes a small defender with good kicking skills
